I know many creative people because I like hanging with creative folks. I meet them when they are on the beach, when they are working or looking for new work. I meet them when I conduct agency reviews. I meet them at events if they come out as well as online.
When I was a puppy one asked me to be his Best Man. Then again he was from Australia and we formed a bond when we were on a shoot on an island in the Caribbean which was supposed to look like Tahiti. The bond wasn’t necessarily from being there but from the fact that on the first day the client told us the island didn’t look like Tahiti. That will send agency folks into a tail spin and the bar.
