It was a cool June evening when David and I headed over to the Sheraton Boston to meet up with photography team members Jean and Rich to photograph BUILD Fest Pitch Challenge for the third year in a row. Our client, BUILD Greater Boston, was primed for another great event. The student business expo/fundraiser was a great success. Three high school entrepreneurs pitched their business models to a group of judges for a chance to win the grand prize of $2,000!

David Kahn’s mother was an artist, so grew up in an art-filled environment. He was exposed to many forms of art, but was drawn to photography. He started out with film and jumped into digital photography very early-back when digital images were captured on a floppy disc!

Listen in to learn about his unique vision and process as well as the obstacles he had to overcome. David also talks about his involvement in the local arts in his home town of Natick, MA where the downtown area was recently designated as a cultural district.
