Chase Jarvis RAW: Seattle Flickr Roundup Redux

So in case you’ve been sleeping under a rock, just a quick reminder that Seattle’s underground photography scene is going berserk. I’d venture to say that there are more aspiring camera shutters cracka-lackin’ here than anywhere on the planet.

If you missed our first such photo evening, highlighted in last January’s vid – Chase Jarvis RAW: Seattle Flickr Roundup – this time we took it to the next level. Thanks to the hard work of my crew and the likes of Glazers Camera here in Seattle, during Friday’s community outreach photo shoot event we were able to provide 100 photographers with the resources they need to help them learn: 30,000 square feet of shooting space, 25 models, 4 stylists, a breakdance crew, a freestyle ramp complete with BMX riders, 7 fully professional lighting stations, and a whole lotta positive vibes…all at no charge to them. In the words of Spinal Tap, this one went to eleven. Click the ‘continue reading’ link below to get the deets on this historic and collaborative event.

So, if you’re a pro shooter, consider rounding up some local photo enthusiasts, reaching out to your community and sharing some knowledge. On the other hand, if you’re an aspiring photographer and this sort of thing is of interest to you, consider rounding up your homies and sharing resources. It’s good fun and remember, a rising tide floats all the boats.

Check out some of their photos from Friday’s gig here:

Would like to see something like this happen in Sydney Australia one day. Great to see other photographers getting together and sharing there ideas and how-tos great work.

Chase Jarvis says:

pretty sure I was just using 3…

Mark says:

I have read you were using 4 heads but i can only see 3 of them in the video!!!

JoelDC says:

Love this!
You guys gotta come to Sydney, Australia!

Radu Onofrei says:

I only can dream about something like that to happen into my country.

Aberazzi says:

I kind of wish you would come to Texas and do one of these or let it known way in advance. I would be more than willing to fly to Seattle to hang out and shoot a day with Chase Jarvis.

mytmouse says:

Chase, this was such a great experience that I’m STILL talking about it. I’ve had a few people ask how I got studio space and lighting gear for my shots and I pointed them right to your blog. Thanks a million man!

This is just great and unbelievable cool! I am following your blog since last year december and I am just blown away! You really are a true example of how the world should be with each other not just in photography… This is evolution! free evolution!

I’m proud to have had a hand in this and glad I could help.

If anyone is interested in how to build a better strobist community, I’d be more than happy to chat.

Chase Jarvis says:

@ Bill: yup. we get permission to use all the music in our videos.

Veduta Valerii says:

sorry, I post in 2-3 time. how to contact you… offlist?

Why, why there is nothing like that in Ukraine…
There is only one solution – to organize such activity by myself…
Chase, will you give me a quick HOWTO? 
Thank for your video.

Niveus Apparel says:

this is so rad. Will you ever make it to the east coast? This would be killer in the boston area…

Bill says:

@Chase, Thanks for doing this; I know it means a lot to the group and I just wish I could have been there. I lived in Seattle for 6 months Jan 30 to Aug 1 and so even though I was involved with the Flickrites I missed you on both ends by a couple weeks….

When you say “And, of course, thanks to Trent at Nine Inch Nails for the tunes. “, Do you contact Trent to get permission to use his songs over the videos?


to address your questions:
1) To connect our D# to Aperture, we just use a mini USB -> USB cable. We were running a Profoto Pro 7A with 2 heads, a Pro 7b (battery) with 2 heads.


I think this is amazing and i wish something like this would take place here in england, i have two questions:
1) what cable do u use to lonk ur camera to the computer?
2) what lighting were u using in this?

RVDS says:

You guys are doing such amazing work, and you are such an inspiration! Would love to do this in London, UK sometime soon!

it’s real cool how much you are truly giving back to the photographic community. There are so many posers out there that say they are out to help out and all they really want to do is help out their pocket book.

Here in my home town the pros are very closed mouth and the only time they are willing to talk to you is to treat you like a mule and then ship you off. I have actually heard of pros giving very bad advise on purpose because they are afraid of competition, so they figure if they sabotage you now they can cut one more competitor down before they get started……..Very sad

Adam says:

@Black English…thanks.

I teach high school kids photography and this is the kind of thing that I am trying to set up for them (on a bit smaller scale!) I really want to be part of this next time, how can I get on the list?

Chase Jarvis says:

@ everybody: contact me offlist to discuss hosting one of these in the your country or city… I can give you some background and ideas. I’m serious about infusing this idea into photo communities worldwide.

get me at info at chase jarvis dot com

Chase Jarvis says:

@ frank: contact me offlist to discuss hosting one of these in the netherlands… I can give you some background and ideas.

Would love to organize it in the Netherlands :D

Hi Chase,

Great stuff guys!!

I’m with nesayus Germany sucks as far as giving back all the pro-photog keep everything close tho there chest.

Neasaus let do it here?

amazing, it would be cool if we could see some shots of chase’s demo

umm, so this sounds like one of the most amazing things i’ve ever heard of for any aspiring photographer.

hi chase. My name is lanfranco and i’m an italian aspiring shutter! =)
Your work is fantastic. Your way to share all you have done is very useful for me.
I hope u come in Italy soon.

Mark says:

Wow, what a way to give back in education to the community with your time and talents. Now I am bummed I missed this, next time.

Pyrodogg says:

wow, I wish something like this was happening where I live

This is amazing and unlike anything I’ve seen. Way to go!

Incredible! There’s got to be a budget way to do something similar in the Bay Area. Hmmmm…

Anonymous says:

Chase, thanks for hangin’ with us.

jussi says:

This is way too cool to be true!

I hope the video about the demo you gave is comming up?

Caralin Ruth says:

Wow – this looks like it was an amazing event and opportunity. Someone PLEASE do this in Toronto!

Sean Young says:

Chase & crew,

I just wanted to say thanks for putting this all together. I had a great time and enjoyed seeing what other photographers were doing. I can't wait for the next one!

Jeff says:

those lucky seattlers…they should really start doing something that big in Toronto

sarah rhoads says:

so sad I had to miss it this time. Had such a grand ol’ time at the last one that you guys did back in January. Chase, your awesome for giving so freely of yourself

Grrr I hate you :D But only for not doing this in my part of the world.

Seems there is loads going on in the US, but here in europe (Denmark) nothing is going on :(

To bad for us but looks like you are doing an amazing job.

Terrence says:

Chase: Please, please, please make a phone call to New York City and get some of your less-down-to-earth peers on board with this. New York amateurs and semi-pros are dying for someone to care like you do.

Paul Gibson says:

That was a fantastic night! Thanks to everyone who help put on the event and to everyone who showed up to learn and have fun.

Awesome – how do I find out about the next one in advance?

Wow. What you’re a part of is pretty amazing. I’m just repeating your words when I say that photographers need to help each other out. Somewhere along the line we got freaked out about people taking our ideas and stopped sharing, but its an unnessessary fear because no one can see your vision like you. Even if someone took the same idea, in the same place, at the same time, the pictures will look different. Art is individual in that sense, but when artists come together they all grow and become better artists.
What your doing is awesome, awesome, awesome. I look forward to future updates on this project.


Tuffer says:

boy did I pick the wrong day to move from seattle to brussels! I’ll see if I can bring some of that seattle energy over here. If you’re ever in the area, Chase…

Brett says:

For all the people outside Seattle, WA and the U.S. this is great opportunity for you to find your local professional Photog and get him or her to do the same. It’s great to see a pro donate there time and energy to teach and help there local photography under ground. Good luck and a big Thanks to Chase Javis and to the whole crew.


I had a great time at the hanger shoot. Thank you very much for putting this on as well as the snack and beverage after the shoot. – Steve

That’s it!! Florida is coming back!

Danno~ says:

would love to do something like this in phoenix.

congrats on another successful one, chase.


Chris says:

Wow Chase, I really admire the fact that you reveal the specs about your (awesome) work! Too bad the roundup took place in Seattle, since I’m a Dutchie… Any chance you’re going to do a roundup near your studio in Paris? Because I would def attend!


Will says:

Thanks Chase & crew, what a night it was! Killer vid too, good job!

Stu says:

Hey Chase,

We have a great bunch of photographers over here in Scotland, and after watching the video you have inspired me to setup something similar over here in Scotland. I think its a great way to give back to the photographic community. Thanks for the inspiration.



Jules says:

Said it in person, but will say it here too. Thanks Chase for helping make this a better experience for everyone. Next time I know I’ll be able to swing more models. :)

Trevin Chow says:

Ha, “Char” should have obviously been “Chase”. Dang iPhone keyboard :)

Peter says:

Chase I was and am still amazed at how giving you are to the photographic community. I loved being there and watching you work.

Thanks so much!

Trevin Chow says:

Big thanks to Char, his crew along with all the models, makeup artists, stylists and volunteers. This event totally rocked!

That just ROCKS!! To bad I live here in Arkansas. Wait!! I want to know what it takes to get something started like that here. I am inspired!! What an event. Thanks for sharing.

Philipp Hinrichsen says:

I think this was a great fun for everybody. I do always enjoy this blog since a couple of month. I wish I could visit Seattle once and join one of the roundups over there. As i am Living in Europe this one is not going to be easy but I am saving my money for it *joking*. Chase Jarvis you are very kind to let us see how you work. And i am proud i did find your blog. If I Ever come around Seattle I’ll let you know.

Ray says:

You guys in Seattle are rocking it!!!! We need more people to do things like this here in Tampa. Man you guys make me want to move to Seattle.
