I thoroughly enjoy photographing events for The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Not only do I reconnect with one of my Alma maters, I also meet fascinating people.
This particular event was the Corporate Partner’s Luncheon. Prior to the scheduled programming, I wandered photographing various guests mingling. I came upon a gentleman who asked me about the retro look of my camera and what it was all about. We spent a few minutes chatting and he asked me for advice on a camera for himself. Twenty minutes later when he was introduced as a panelist, I realized that he was Charles Adler, a co-founder of Kickstarter !
