Over the years, I’ve really fallen in love with the ability to share and connect with you through my social channels. Never before has it been easier and faster to create, share, and connect. In a digital age where it’s possible to live in our own little bubble, it can often feel technology is better at isolating us than connecting. What I’ve found though, is the opposite. I can think of the countless names I’ve seen in my feeds for years, and now with platforms like instagram (add me here), I can not only share my thoughts, ideas, and happenings 1-to-many, but we can chat 1:1 — almost in real-time. It’s like having the internet on my speed dial. On a trip to London, half-way across the world, many of you asked to meet up while I was there — so within a few hours of landing, we were able to find a place, invite whoever wanted/could come via all my social channels to meet at a small local pub. While I will always advocate being present in the moment and with those around you, digital actually does do a great job of connecting us too. Instagram in particular has […]
Can you believe this show has been running for 10 YEARS! Today’s guest was one of my earliest guests, and long time friend, Jasmine Star. Jasmine is a photographer, business strategist and founder of Social Curator. If you’re an OG listener, you’ll hear some behind the scenes stories of some our collaborations, including the internet’s first ever LIVE wedding (where Jasmine taught CreativeLive’s first wedding photo class – attended by 150,000 students!) More important than reminiscing, though, we go deep on finding your voice, adopting children, homemade tortillas, dropping out and reinventing yourself in an entirely new career. Jasmine’s journey is one that many creatives can identify with, from facing difficult times, how she found her feet and her personal process of transitioning from one career to another. She articulates how to make that transition and gives us very practical advice that will add heaps of value to you. We also talk about … instagram strategy – she’s a master – and you should know all about her business socialcurator.com Mentors, leaders, and inspirations the evolution of a career, how to transition from being known / building a community as a one thing (like a wedding photographer) and re-shaping that […]
Listen to the Podcast Congrats! You did it – you’re graduating! Big ups on all the hard work and long hours. But here’s the scary part. Graduation is the first day of the rest of your life. Last week by far the most popular question I saw in my social feed was around graduation. Either YOU were graduating, your friends or sons / daughters–and, naturally, there was a lot of concern. Generally you asked what I’d tell new graduates in a time like this … So that’s what today’s #chasejarvisRAW is all about. Whether you are a twenty-something just about to enter the job market or you know someone who is “graduating” to a new career, whether it’s photography or any other creative / entrepreneurial discipline … here are my TOP 3 THINGS GRADUATES NEED TO BE THINKING ABOUT. Thing 1: Be Great At Your Craft Learning doesn’t end when you’re no longer in the classroom. This might be seem like an obvious thing, yet so many people leave school and forget that they need to be great at their skill and instead get consumed by the myriad of OTHER things surrounding a career, such as building a website, getting […]

Today I’m sitting down with one of my favorite humans, but in a twist of fate, the tables are turned. I’m in the hot seat – being interviewed by my dear friend and design-industry legend, Debbie Millman. Debbie Millman is chair of the Masters in Branding Program at the School of Visual Arts in NYC…and she has an insane track record going back decades: she’s the author of 6 books including “How To Think Like A Great Graphic Designer,” and a prolific design writer in outlets like NYT, Fast Company, and Design Observer. She also hosts the longest-running design podcast called Design Matters with over 300 interviews over the last 10 years. In this conversation Debbie really digs into my personal past – and asks me questions I’ve never had in any public interview. Her detailed research and talent for pulling tidbits out of my past covered ground about my deep-seated beliefs on the future of photography, creativity, my love for crows, and my biggest professional failures to date. Hope you enjoy it. Please give Debbie a shoutout on social she’s just @debbiemillman … and be sure to check out Design Matters podcast. Enjoy! FOLLOW DEBBIE: twitter | website Listen to […]

Today we welcome back on the show the 6x international bestselling author, Robert Greene. Robert has had huge impact in my life with books like Mastery, 48 Laws of Power, and the 33 Strategies of War. And in this episode we go deep on his newest book – and my new favorite – The Laws of Human Nature, a brilliant consolidation of the various theories on human nature – how to better understand them and use them to grow. We dive deep into: You are a lot weirder than you think you are. WE ALL ARE in fact. We’re repressing so many sides of who we are – most often without even knowing it. We’re trying to stand out. We’re trying to fit in. The stuff we repress and try to hide are like a stranger within us. Knowing all this – and how to navigate it – gives us personal power. It it possible to harness our “dark side” for increased creativity, wisdom, strength and character? Robert argues that, not only is it something worth tapping into, it’s THE source of power missing in your life. Robert’s recent near-death experience has given him a profound sense of gratitude, how it has compelled […]
