Creativity is not a battle, but part of an ongoing process. The War of Art and other leading creativity books assume that there is an enemy and you must fight or die. Chris Orwig offers his perspective firmly rooted in photography. He wants people to make a connection, find inspiration, and follow a creative path to build their own ideas and lead richer lives. With chapter titles like: qYou're Using the Wrong Map, q qThe Camera is a Life Saving Device, q qNatural Habitat vs. Zoo, q qSharpen the Tool, q and qBoomerang, q Chris presents each creative concept with an unusual story or anecdote. He then offers a creative leader interview, and provides an exercise or actions steps, so the reader is not only inspired but also knows what to do next. The stories and exercises are drawn from Chris's 12 years as an instructor at the prestigious Brooks Institute as well as his experience leading photography workshops and speaking on global stages. He is well positioned to talk about this subject with authority and offers a unique and inspiring alternative. Creative leader interviews included in each chapter will be with people like: Grant Neiporte, screenwriter; Natalie Long, Nickelodeon and Disney animator; Neil Dana, cofounder GoPro; Rodney Smith, master photographer; and others. Each chapter will conclude with exercises and action steps that will help the reader discover how the topic is relevant and meaningful to their own lives. The format will be simple and beautifully designed with images that are connected and visually support the concepts.
