Summary: $1.32 Million, Used Shoes, Topless Babes, Apple + HP, and Superman

Okay. Let’s pretend that each of the following speedlinks corresponds to a day of the work week. Think stereotypical work days here. Hang with me on this…

Monday. Mondays can catch you off guard. Sometimes with bad news, but other times with good news. This feels like a Monday link:

Did you hear? Seattle-based photographer Lloyd Shugart wins 1.32 million dollars in the first noted victory for photography under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act. Lesson here? Register your images. If this sort of stuff interests you, read about my ongoing thingie with K2 and/or watch the Photoshelter 2.0 Panel discussion that comments on the topic.

Tuesday. Tuesdays can be funny and wierd. Thus, this here feels like a Tuesday link:

Okay, I get a lot of email, but this was the funniest one from last week. Someone asked for me to send them a pair of my shoes. Seriously. Here’s their message:

Chase, I’ve just seen the NYC Photoshelter footage and decided to see how far i can go with my images and Business if I walk the Chase walk.

In part of the NYC Photoshelter footage I found out that we share the same shoe size….so how better to walk a mile in another mans shoes than actually walk in his shoes…….Chase, send me your shoes…..

1763 [xxxxx] Lane

Cheers, Russ
Russell Byrne

That being funny and witty and cool and weird, you get props from me. You’ve walked my talk Russ–you got my attention for sure–And for it, I’m actually planning on sending you a pair of shoes. And you more than deserve a link: see the photography behind this nice guy who wants my old shoes at Russell Byrne Photography.

Wednesday. Wednesdays are cool because they’re called “hump days”. Thus, when I think about humps, I think about several things. That’s part of what make this playful link featuring a topless babe perfect for hump day.

(Thanks, David)

Thursdays seem to me to be a day where a lot of useful information seems to move around on the net. That’s what makes this feel like the perfect Thursday link:

Apple and HP are at it again, doing good for photographers, and doing it for free. They present… IMAGES: organize. edit. print. It’s a free 3 hour seminar coming to a city near you. Looks to be a good one with lots of experts on hand. Register now, as seats are limited. Poster here, cities and dates below:

-Boston (Oct 23)
-San Francisco (Oct 30)
-San Diego (Nov 13)
-Culver City (Nov 15)
-Miami (Nov 27)
-New York (Dec 5 & 6)

Friday. Alas, Fridays are meant for some good ol’ light hearted (brainless?) fun. That’s what makes this a Friday link:

Surprisingly-entertaining online Photography Game (that’s right!) featuring the one and only, Superman. You must play. It’s Friday. I scored 55. You?

Have a great weekend.

  4. Ken Mott October 12, 2007 at 8:26 am #

    Woohoo 136 first try.

    Chase takes way better pictures than me though.

  5. Ken Mott October 12, 2007 at 8:27 am #

    Blogger doesn’t like links.

  6. Bruce Elliott October 12, 2007 at 8:40 am #

    Cheers for all your posts Chase. Always nice when I check in and there’s something new waiting.

  7. Will Foster October 12, 2007 at 8:59 am #

    Not to brag, but I got a 93… and got a fluke on my last round, he wouldn’t fly in the frame!

    Thanks chase for all the killer stuff you post and the positive attitude – the world can use a little more of that!


  11. Chase Jarvis October 12, 2007 at 2:07 pm #

    Whoa! Check out Ken Mott! 136! I just returned from a location scouting day and played again but only managed to squeek out a 106.

    Ken Mott is king.

    (along with Russ for his email of the week)

  12. Chase Jarvis October 12, 2007 at 2:11 pm #

    Ok…a late rush of 120’s… I see. Some folks are practicing. I’m banking on somebody posting a really high score this weekend when they’ve got some time ;)

    Screen grab for anything the beats Ken’s score. Email them to info@ I’ll send you a free Chase Brand T-shirt.

  13. Michael Keller October 12, 2007 at 4:35 pm #

    just scored a 141, i’ll be sending you an email!

  14. October 12, 2007 at 10:16 pm #

    Damn he´s fast! I got all the way to Metropolis but all the excitement made me forget to check out my points…. ;o) Great for this very early saturday morning (my little son does not want to sleep as long as mom & dad…)

    And what a great laugh, the topless babe!

    Did you send the guy his shoes yet by the way?

  15. Rémi October 13, 2007 at 4:24 pm #

    Well… I only scored 109… no t-shirts for me :(
    BUT, I made the front page of the Daily Planet for London, Hong Kong, Sydney and Metropolis (wherever it is…) yahooo! ;)

  16. davideinar October 14, 2007 at 2:40 am #

    121.. had been much higher if it was a Nikon camera ;)

  17. Chase Jarvis October 14, 2007 at 4:27 pm #

    Hey everyone: so I’m on a Brooks Running ( shoot right now in Aspen. And Russell gets some shoes. Brooks always give me lots of shoes. Should I send Russell a brand new pair of Brooks Running shoes, size 11. Or should I send him some old, beat up kicks?

    Please advise.

  18. Chase Jarvis October 14, 2007 at 4:29 pm #

    So I mentioned we’re on the road. And we’re playing Superman. Kate just hooked up a 118. should I give her anything? Besides maybe a day off? ;)

  19. Rémi October 14, 2007 at 5:12 pm #

    Yeah!, Just scored 147 !
    I’m supposed to study for my exams this week…. looks like anything is good to avoid studying ;)

    Chase, you’ll receive my email in a few minutes :P

  20. Ken Mott October 14, 2007 at 7:40 pm #

    I had a 148 on friday as well

  21. Rémi October 14, 2007 at 7:53 pm #

    damn, I should have spend a couple more hours on this game :P

  22. Rémi October 14, 2007 at 8:29 pm #

    enough for me, now.

  23. Ken Mott October 14, 2007 at 10:09 pm #

    Nice, if i get bored at work i will have to try again.

    And do you use the +/- keys?

  24. October 14, 2007 at 10:28 pm #

    Chase; send the guy some old beat-up shoes – how else could he walk the Chase-walk?



  25. October 14, 2007 at 10:31 pm #

    By the look of the time printed on these postings, you all will soon be going to bed…… My day just started on the other side of the Atlantic. Think I´ll begin the day with a Superman photo-shoot.

    It´s addictive this!

    Sleep tight!


  26. Rémi October 15, 2007 at 5:10 am #

    ken : yes I do use the +/- key, but often I don’t go all the way with the zoom, you can make 10/10 shots without having to go to the long end of the zoom.
    what I hate the most, is when superman stops passing after only one or two passages in the screen. In london, it happend almost everytime I tapped 3 times or more on the + key.

  27. Emile Bremmer October 16, 2007 at 6:39 am #

    chase the shoe decision should be a no-brainer. See Malin’s comment. My additional argument would be that beat up shoes are always more comfy for walking any sort of walk.

    My superman score is still 0 after 3 tries; its not a pretty sight (actually my mouse-pointer-device simply doesn’t allow finger slidin’ and clicking or tapping at the same time)


  28. Carrie October 18, 2007 at 12:51 am #

    I got 147 the first time I played back in May:

    Have scored higher since, but didn’t screen cap it. D’oh!

  29. Kourosh Azar October 21, 2007 at 3:00 am #

    Hey Chase!

    First of all, I want to thank you for all the fantastic info and inspiration you provide through your work and this blog.

    Your positive attitude and energy just keeps stoking the fire in all of us.

    Recently set up a portfolio and blog thanks to your inspiration. It ain’t much, but it’s only a couple days old.

    Keep up the “great” work, and thanks again…

  30. jeff November 14, 2007 at 9:58 pm #

    Just wanted to give Chase a shout of thanks for sending the t-shirt! I wear it proudly.

  31. Herry April 13, 2009 at 4:37 am #

  32. noble July 7, 2009 at 5:05 am #

    Financial sources said Nine West does about $1 billion in annual wholesale volume, and about another $900 million or so in retail sales. A sale of the entire operation could bring in at least $2 billion for Jones, some Wall Street analysts predicted. While the footwear sector is profitable, one Wall Street analyst noted it’s an area of little growth. The brand, however, generates a “decent amount of cash flow,” the analyst said. He applauded the possible sale of the company, noting Jones has been on a “treadmill for five years” and that streamlining the business would perhaps allow Jones to focus on apparel, its core competency. Another analyst also viewed the sale of Nine West as a “positive,” pointing out that while the business is fixable, it is not really Jones’ core specialty.
