Chase Jarvis Sits Down With Jasmine Star

Chase Jarvis has started a really cool idea called Creative Live in which he gives back helpful information to other creative individuals. In this video Chase sits down with Jasmine Star who is one of the top wedding photographers in the business. I first came across Jasmine through David Jay and instantly fell in love with her. I love how they express their frustrations with living a typical 9 to 5 lifestyle and how professional photography allowed them to live the life they wanted to live. Just like them, I too went to school for something compeletely opposite of photography, and it was conversations like this that eventually lead me to change my career path to become the photographer I am today.

Chase says it really well when he says, “There is no prescription for how you get to become a photographer.” This video is not about fstoppers and shutterspeeds but rather about how to take control of your life and your passions and turn them into a business. I know wedding photography often gets a bad wrap but through wedding photography, I have been able to support myself financially every weekend and still have time to pursue other fields of photography during the week. Jasmine Star’s story is about as good as it gets, and it’s inspiring to hear her share her success story with everyone so candidly. I hope you guys enjoy this video as much as I have and I’m only half way through it!

Comparing the Sensor in Nikon’s Df and D4 Cameras

Lately we’ve been seeing a lot about the Nikon Df.

Selling Stolen Images: Mango Proves Companies Can Do the Right Thing

It is getting pretty hard to avoid reading a story a couple times a month where a photographer’s photos are stolen in some way. It has become, sadly, the nature of the internet. Sometimes photographers aren’t even aware of it until the image spreads beyond containment, but others, like Swedish photographer Tuana, do their best to nip it in the bud and succeed with help from what many would consider to be an unlikely source: the company who was unlawfully selling the image.

Stop Holding Yourself Back

I wrote recently about the importance of developing your own style. One of the worst things any creative professional can do is to get sucked into thinking about what work we should be doing or how we should be doing it. When was the last time you looked at someone else’s work and thought “Wow that’s really good. I really need to be doing something like that”? For me, it was earlier this morning. It’s totally normal and intuitive behavior. [more]

The Little Business Practices That Make a World of Difference

So you know your business inside and out and your image quality is top notch, but there’s always room for improvement. A factor that many people overlook is the experience that a client has when they work with them, being on one side of the operations gives you a very different perspective and because of this you could be overlooking little important details that make the world of difference. I’ve been working as a full time commercial photographer for a year now, and in that time I’ve learned a lot from not only my own client interactions, but the other businesses I’ve worked with as well.

10 Photographers to Look to for Inspiration

No matter what skill level you’re at in photography, it’s often helpful to take a break and spark the creative process on some new ideas by looking at the work of others; this shouldn’t be confused with imitation, but rather used as a tool for building original ideas. The following list highlights the work and skills of creatives who offer inspiration throughout the industry that I, and many others turn to for a new perspective.
