What do the words "Creative Community" bring to mind for you? How do you feel is the best way to utilize members in a Creative Community?
My creative community consists of fellow photographers, stylists, makeup artists, hair stylists, magazine editors, fashion fanatics and anyone who has a love for photography.
Staying in touch, emailing, brainstorming sessions, getting coffee, getting drinks, @ing on Instagram, are all ways I utilize this community.
