On this week’s episode, we’re catching up with Ave Pildas. Ave was born and raised in Cincinnati, Ohio and worked early in his career as a photo stringer for Downbeat Magazine in the Ohio Valley and Pennsylvania. That was in the 1960’s but that just the beginning of Ave’s journey. Ave and Bob talked about his days spent photographing many renowned jazz musicians, the time he spent working as the Art Director at Capitol Records in Hollywood, and the years that followed when he worked as a freelance photographer and designer, specializing in architectural and corporate photography.
