’ve been shooting religiously with GoPro cameras since they came out way back in the day. Love those little monsters. At a minimum, I travel with three or more Hero3’s for any shoot – I’ve just found they just come in super-duper handy for all sortsa great stuff. BUT…. taking into account mounts, memory cards, chargers, spare batteries and all miscellany associated with the GoPro and you’ve got yourself quite a load of gear to keep track of.

That’s why I’ve come up with a pretty tight little system for packing & traveling with my GoPros. The above video really gives the full insight, but all cooked down into a tasty little reduction, it smells something like this: cr8.lv/1G46CnQ

There are two types of photographers who impress the hell out of me.

One is the wartime photojournalist, who puts his or her life on line to document real stories and images behind the world’s most dangerous conflicts. [I’ve written about it before — Would You Die for a Photo?]. Without their work, truths get lost, and the stakes are as high as they can get.

The other is the extreme photographer. I’m not talking about the “adventure photographer” here, the guy who snaps sunset shots of a pride of lions from the safety of his Range Rover. No, I mean the photographer who captures the athletes and adventurers who are pushing the absolute limits of sport in remote and difficult locations. It’s a bit obtusely self reflexive as I often get lumped in with this action sports crew…but there is another level beyond that, I promise. These are the photographers who must both be artists behind the lens and possess the same talents being captured in front of it.

A couple years ago, you may recall, during a month-long artist-in-residency at the Ace Hotel in NYC I took the opportunity to celebrate the snapshot — quintessential street photography — and I called the exhibit Dasein: Invitation to Hang. [‘Dasein’ is a German word used by philosophers to refer to raw human experience or the fundamental mode of “being there.” I found that when applied to photography, the snapshot was the ultimate photographic expression of us simply, authentically being in the world / caught on film. ] The exhibit featured an ever-changing wall of snapshots, both my own and selections chosen from nearly 15,000 submissions across the globe.

At the core of the work what I found was my own sense of street photography – regardless of whether it was on the street, on a train, or backstage with the band. Point being that street photograhy – the art of the snapshot if you will – is about the moment. It’s about choosing to take the photograph. It’s about mood, and –quite often–it is about talking to strangers.

There just shouldn't be barriers to education. Period. 

I had the distinct pleasure of being a guest on Jenni Hogan’s “Next Big Thing” podcast a couple weeks ago to talk a bit about my life path(s), pivot points and the way that creativeLIVE is systematically re-shaping access to the best education.

One thing is for certain: both paths are full of fear.  But which will you choose?  

http://blog.chasejarvis.com/blog/2011/04/so-you-want-to-be-a-professional/?utm_campaign=so-you-want-to-be-a-professional/

So you want to be a professional?

Photographer. Director. Golfer. Belly dancer. Designer. Waiter. Model.

If you’re wondering if you’ve got what it takes to go pro, try it. Seriously. Quit what you’re doing now and go there. You’ll know soon after you’ve tried to go there whether or not you’re in the right spot. If you don’t have what it takes, it will be obvious – going pro will be too hard, other things will seem more interesting, more pleasurable, more fun.

On the other hand, if you do have what it takes, you will be reborn. All setbacks will seem small, all goals achievable, all hurdles put there only to keep out the others. You will know you’re on the right path.

One thing for certain is that both paths–trying to go pro and steering clear of going pro–will be full of fear. In one case the fear is that you’ll fail and not be good enough. In the other case the fear is that you’ll never have lived your dream…

When you think of those two, which one is worse?

step 1: get a hobby
step 2: turn that hobby into a profession
step 3: become SUPER LIKE AWESOME at it.
step 4: indulge in the fact that you are now a professional. (A.K.A. a person with a profession)

Barriers are bullshit.

Are you pursuing your personal passions to get the pictures you want, or are you letting…ahem…”too many obstacles” stop you?

Here’s a little inspiration. Using a weather balloon, a Gopro 2, a Multiplex Funjet and some other lo-fi equipment, David Windestål decided to get some first person footage of a trip to space. What he ends up with is an awesome video of the camera’s trip into orbit, and a ton of inspiration for the rest of us. Sure he could massaged the footage and edited differently / better. But whatever. In this post its the spirit that counts. Because truth be told, he’s doing cool shit. And you…?

When we feel the thrill of a great idea, our first instinct is to grab the nearest person and share it. But there’s a problem — ideas are very light. It seems like the best ones, once you open your mouth, are likely to fly off back into the aether.

One big reason we want to share our ideas immediately is we
want that little extra boost, the confirmation that yes, that is a great idea. Of course, as many very talented people will tell you, there is no shortage of great ideas out there; there is, though, a notable lack of good executions.

Fuck yeah freelancing is hard work. But it's the hard that makes it so good.

If you freelance for a living, you might be shocked and disappointed to learn that the work you fought so hard for feels like…well, work. And that means that something is very, very wrong. Or does it? In fact, it’s okay for the freelance life to feel like work. Here’s why:

A Humble Approach

Have you ever heard the phrase “chop wood, carry water?” It’s a Zen proverb that goes something like this: Before Enlightenment, chop wood, carry water. After Enlightenment, chop wood, carry water. You could easily sub in the words “going full-time freelance” for Enlightenment—and the message is a healthy one for freelancers to absorb.

Adventure is the best inspiration.

One thing that never gets old for me is the adventure of location photography. I thrive on the travel and escaping from one’s day-to-day, the challenges that Mother Nature conjures up and deploys on you at a whim, and the camaraderie of a crew – be it large or small – united on a mission in search of a stunning photo or two.

Now combine that “one thing that never gets old” with another – the stunning country that is New Zealand.  This is perhaps the mother of all location shooting – there’s a reason that Peter Jackson chooses this backdrop for all the fantasy films he makes. It looks like a goddamn made up place. One where you’d expect unicorns and rainbows – and that’s basically what you get.

One of the most common misconceptions I come across is the belief that once you’ve somehow “made it,” I / one / you don’t hit ruts, bumps, run into blocks, or otherwise get paralyzed by the creative work that needs doing.

In fact, nothing could be further from the truth. I get thrown for a loop all the time.

I’ve found myself off my game at numerous times in my career, getting lost for a bit and struggling to re-capture the clarity that comes with great creative vision, intent, and very hard work. And the same is true of so many of my friends who are at the top of their creative games, respectively.  We all get bit by the occasional creative funk.  The difference between those of us who sink and those who swim?

Action.

So what do I do when that happens?

First, I acknowledge that my moon is waning and, as I mentioned above, I take decisive action.  Sometimes it takes a week or even a month to realize the creative hole, but once I do, I know it’s time to act.

Second, I find some space. I need room for step 3.  And what is step 3?

Third, I read. Yep.  I pick up the books that I’ve read before but that continue to inspire me and remind me that creativity is a process, an activity, a mode of operating — and not divinity.  It’s not luck.  It’s not wisdom.  It’s work. And it’s this headspace that helps kick me back into the spirit of reading. They create adventures in my mind that turn into adventures in making, being, doing.

So….The following is THE list of books that I turn to on the regular to escape these scary dark places when my (lying) mind takes over and tells us me I suck.  Or tells me that I’m lucky to be here.  Or tells me that I’m fooling everyone and that my once sunny is sinking into the abyss as we speak.  The voices in my head are, I know, really just bullshit — but this list of 6 books is anything but that.

Creativity is work -- and this reading list of my favorite creative books are the homework. Get yourself unblocked with these great reads!
