Updated Portfolio + New Project

I just recently updated my online portfolio with some more images that strike the chord I’ve been pursuing lately: curious moments coupled with simple, inky finishes that kick contrast and density rules to the curb.

Reminds me: I gained some insights, some laughs and some horror out of reading the comments from a post not too long ago where I encouraged you to Be My Editor, as well as the followup post The Results Are In. From “Genius!” to “Looks like a teenager with a D40″, the comments poured in–several hundred comments in less than 24 hours–and the range of feedback was wiiiiide. Loved it, really. Resulted in my inbox looking like Jean Michel Basquiat’s hair, but I loved it. Lovers, haters, and some WTF?’ers. Right where I’d wanna be, actually. Rather have that then nothing worth a conversation.

Years ago I rolled out like a textbook and I felt like half a man because of it. Nowadays, I could give a shyte. I want to make the pictures I want to make. Period. And funny thing – it’s works. Those crafty art directors have a sixth sense for when you’re doing work you like. They can smell it, and they pick up the phone.

BTW, for those that like a bit of a game, how about big cash prizes a high five and a frozen pizza to whomever nails (in the comments section) which image #’s in my portfolio are newly added. [Update: have had lots of people within one image of getting the list of new shots correct. Now either a tuned-in reader or a statistician is soon to get it…]

More discussion and a new addition to the Projects page after the jump. Click the ‘continue reading’ link below …

Ok, so this new-ish project I’ve also recently posted is nothing like the projects that normally drive me (like this). The new little project I’ve been working on rather irregularly for a couple of years is a series of landscape images from New Zealand.

Backstory is that I work in New Zealand a lot since it’s opposite seasonally to the northern hemisphere. Shoots like to go down south (NZ, Chile, South Africa) to get opposite weather and shoot “in-season” material for stuff that’s not going to see the light of day up north for 6 months. You get it. Anyway, I’m there a lot and am constantly awed by the landscape. Stunning. So on each trip down to the En Zed, as they say, I’ve been aiming to get a couple of handsome landscapes. It’s finally getting somewhere.

In reality, I don’t have anywhere near the patience to be a true landscape shooter, nor do I have the desire. It’s totally out of my character, which is precisely why it’s healthy for me to slow down just a little bit and look around for these shots. As my Dad would say, “it builds character” (…to which Harvey Keitel responds, from Pulp Fiction, “just because you are a character doensn’t mean you have character…”). Regardless, it gets me out of my comfort zone and helps me see other shots better in the work I enjoy. If you’re a shooter reading this, and you’re not occasionally stepping out of your comfort zone, consider giving it a try some time. It’ll get your knickers in a twist, but ultimately it will make you a better photographer.

To those of you who got a sneak peek at these shots in NYC, and have at one time or another come with pitch forks demanding I post them, here ya go. To the rest, there might be something there worth looking at, but there might not be. If nothing else you’ll at least see some of what New Zealand has to offer.

Remember to tell me which shots are new in the portfolio. I’m interested if you know or if you even care, really.

    I have only seen your portfolio once before. And it was a while ago. So I am relying on my “photographic memory”. I probably guessed way too many.

    1, 4, 5, 7, 10, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 21, 26, 30, 31, 32.


  2. Gerald December 17, 2008 at 9:00 pm #

    I’d say 8, 19, 30?

  3. Alex DiFiori December 17, 2008 at 9:01 pm #

    new port looks great Chase, I like that you kept some f the previous port’s images, but I feel there are too many. My only suggestion would be to trim it down a little. Maybe just three photos or so. It starts flowing than flows for too long and ends a little abruptly.

    Anyway, great work as always. Keep it up, you’re getting us photographers some cred by being cool and I can dig that, simply because we have the hardest and greatest job in the world.

  4. Adam Kaplan December 17, 2008 at 9:07 pm #

    Glad to see you’ve kept some ‘old’ shots in.

    Here’re my guesses for new shots(or at least new shots from last time I flipped through it.):
    1,4,5,7, 8,10,12,13,15,16,22,24,28,30,31, and maybe 32, I know I’ve seen that one before.

  5. BBandJ Reilly December 17, 2008 at 9:11 pm #

    alright homey.

    My attempt at a high five is: 1, 4, 5, 7, 10, 15, 16, 23, 24, 28, 31, 32. maybe 22 too.

    I hope you are well.

  6. steve d. December 17, 2008 at 9:12 pm #

    Chase seriously. You suck in so many ways I just don’t know where to begin. That teenager with a d40 comment was bang on!
    OK, [end sarcasm]

    All I want to know is if there’s any way to get prints of your stuff. I find new ones I want every time I see your stuff and it’s all so varied.

    But seriously dude, take a class or something!
    [end hating/envying]

  7. brian faini December 17, 2008 at 9:23 pm #

    Chase, I love the landscapes.

    No games for me today.

  8. Ken Beegle December 17, 2008 at 9:38 pm #

    I think the new ones are: 1, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 19, 25, 28, 30

    I was also trying to remember which old ones were no longer in the portfolio. I remember the concrete factory with the flag off highway 99, one with manequins and I think one taken with a tilt-shift lens.

    While my memory may not be that great, thanks for sharing all of them and the projects where you push yourself. They’re enjoyable to look at and a good inspiration to learn from.

  9. Tye Durbin December 17, 2008 at 9:52 pm #

    No idea which ones are new, but I really like #29 the reflection in the sunglasses is sweet. There are a couple of others that gave me the “WOW” factor too! Nice portfolio!


  10. tatsuo December 17, 2008 at 9:54 pm #

    Newly added as of when Chase? Seems that you’ve added images at least twice over the past several months? = )

  11. josh leclair December 17, 2008 at 9:55 pm #

    1, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, 12, 14, 15, 16, 18, 22, 23, 25 – instead of the pizza will you let me be a summer intern? no, seriously.

  12. Scott Dickerson December 17, 2008 at 10:00 pm #

    I couldn’t say whether they are new to the portfolio per se, but these are the images of yours I have not seen before: 5, 10, 13, 16, 19, 30 and 31. My favorite is a tie between 26 and 29.

    The New Zealand photos were fun. As an Alaskan with New Zealand citizenship I understand how you can love the landscape, it’s the only other place besides Alaska that I could consider living right now. In that project I particularly enjoy 3 and 12.

    Your comment about art directors having a sense for when we are doing work we love . . that is the good word brother. It’s the message of hope, encouragement, and confidence to listen carefully and follow our passions. Ha! I love it. Thanks for sharing, again, and again.

  13. Ellis December 17, 2008 at 10:23 pm #

    I believe they are: 1,4,5,7,10,16,22,28,30,31. Good job. I know it’s even hard for me to decide on adding or changing one image in my online port.

  14. Dan December 17, 2008 at 10:25 pm #

    I would say 1, 4, 5, 7, 10, 13, 16, 22, 26, 28, 30, 31.

    Maybe on 12, 13, 32. They are either one’s from the past, were posted somewhere else on your site or to close to the same subject that I can’t tell if they are new or not. I don’t think you had the skiing one, 12. I remember Power lines but not the building, 13. Seen it before but I don’t think it was in the portfolio, 32.

    It’s odd that No one remember 8.

  15. Veronica December 17, 2008 at 10:58 pm #

    Wonderful shots of New Zealand, I've always wanted to go, especially after LOTR & now I have too!

    It's been a while since I've gone through your portfolio but here is my list: 1, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, 12, 13, 15, 16, 17, 18, 21, 23, 24, 25, 30, 31, 32

    Will you be putting together a book on New Zealand now?! or maybe selling prints of them? Just wondering : )

  16. Alex Wise December 17, 2008 at 11:02 pm #

    Wow Chase I’m normally terribly picky when it comes to black and white landscape works but these are amazing! Keep up the great work.

  17. Adam December 17, 2008 at 11:03 pm #

    1, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, 16, 22, 27, 28, 31
    My favorite now is 22, the diabetes guy. I couldn’t tell the nice detail in this image from your previous post. I liked it before, but better now. Please get rid of #2, I’ll give you the prized “frozen pizza” if you do, and I’ll give you two high fives.

  18. admin December 17, 2008 at 11:09 pm #

  22. Nick December 18, 2008 at 12:27 am #

    Being a kiwi it is cool to see NZ landscapes being presented in a different light to the traditional ‘chocolate box’ type imagery that is common. Of course my geography sucks, but the trees and scenery in #9 look a lot like Molesworth Station…

  26. Tuffer December 18, 2008 at 1:34 am #

    The Basquait reference is interesting. I see a connection in some of your photos, in the sense that Basquait was often critiqued because people would look and say “I can do that” “its just crude drawings and words” “anyone could paint it” (I’m thinking shopping cart pic, station wagon pic).

    But when it came down to it, Basquait (a) did in fact have all the technical skills to back it up(he could have drawn tourist portraits in montemarte if he wanted), and (b) you couldn’t actually create those paintings if you tried. what looks haphazard or simple is complex, made of of amazing creative decisions along the way.

  27. Christian December 18, 2008 at 2:08 am #

    okay, I’ll give it a try:

    1, 4, 5, 7, 10, 15, 16, 22, 28, 30, 31.

    good stuff!

    I used to very much dislike your shots, but the new portfolio is bad-ass (for the most part). Why didn’t you prepare something like this earlier? :) There’s still some poo, like the Paris car vs skater and US car vs nothing, or the pool shot for hasselblad.. Also, your ski photos are far better than the teenager with D40’s :) I don’t know why they didn’t make it to the folio.. Cheers

  35. Trapped December 18, 2008 at 5:37 am #


  36. Chris December 18, 2008 at 5:49 am #

    I am going with 30,31,32 Seeing as I look at your photos and share your site with friends quite often those are what seem new to me.

  37. Michael December 18, 2008 at 5:52 am #

    I’m guessing, having seen the folio once for the Be My Editor post: 1,4,5,7,10,15,16,22,28

  38. Ole Simen December 18, 2008 at 6:21 am #

    1,4,5,10,16,22,28,31 maybe?:D

    True fan of your work;) I get a lot of inspiration from your photos and your blog…

    Keep ‘em coming:P

  39. Marc Lacombe December 18, 2008 at 6:38 am #

    Ok here we go

    1, 4, 5, 7, 10, 13, 16, 18, 19, 26, 30 ,31

    I think…

  40. Scott D. Coulter December 18, 2008 at 6:56 am #

    I’m not going to compete in the “which shots are new” challenge, but am I right in saying that there are more people-oriented shots now than there used to be? That’s how it felt to me, this time through. Even though some of the shots with people in them are rather abstract (some of my faves, actually), the whole set seems more human-oriented now. I like!

  41. Marcene Perry December 18, 2008 at 6:57 am #

    I have no idea, but I love #17!

  42. Alexander Jordan December 18, 2008 at 7:13 am #

    ok im guna go for 10, 15, 16, 23 and 27, how did i get on? btw any chance of getting a flickr round up U.K going?
    (if its a yes can i get on board?)

    Alexander Jordan

  43. Steve W December 18, 2008 at 7:21 am #

    Impressive landscape, would stand up with the best. As or the new shots, my guess is 1,4,5,7,10,16,30 and 31. Good adds to a wonderfully diverse and eclectic mix.

  44. Danny December 18, 2008 at 8:26 am #

    I skipped all of the comments and I am going solely off of memory. I suppose you’ll have to take my word on this.
    Your new shots are: 1, 4, 5, 7, 10, 13, 16, 19, 24, 28, and 31.
    The only ones I’m not sure about are 13 and 19, but I’m pretty sure they’re new. You’ll have to let us know.

  45. Mitchell A. Franz December 18, 2008 at 8:33 am #

    I would have to say that the new ones are all of them except like 20, 26, and 32 I know is some of your older work that was in the previous portfolio.

  46. garyallard December 18, 2008 at 9:01 am #

    Lessee… 1, 4, 5, 7, 10, 16, 22, 26, 31 (Hi, Chloe!) and maybe 25 but it could be I’ve seen it everywhere this year. That one has wracked up some award points.

    The NZ work is really amazing stuff for an amateur landscape guy like yourself ;) I have always loved to look at landscape photos but have never had a real passion to do that kind of work and when I try it they just seem like snaps between “real” frames. Maybe I need more patience.

  47. JVL December 18, 2008 at 9:02 am #

    I’m not going to play the guessing game – someone out there is better than me on it anyways, but I like the portfolio and I definitely recognize some of the older ones over the new ones.

    Aside from the daily inspiration I can draw from you, your writing, your work, I’ve got to say that your “action” shots are where it’s at. Maybe not where I want to be at – but I def want to give them a try. Get some strobage, some background, someone who’s active and just go to town.

    I may not take any shots I like, likely, I’ll F-up the batch, but I’ll have tried and I definitely want to get a few out of the experience. Learning all the way.

    The one I shot lately, the one that makes me think “yeah – I gotta do more of those” beyond the accident was this: http://jvl.stasis.org/pixelpost/index.php?showimage=511

    not great, total accident, but I like it – and I want to do more.


  48. Shelby White December 18, 2008 at 9:12 am #

  52. Nicolas December 18, 2008 at 10:23 am #

    Hi Chase,

    I stumbled across your portfolio a few days ago and it was already full of new pictures. Anyway I have a guess about which pictures are new and which are not. I feel like to share so I will give some details about my though. Even if, in the end it will sound like I am a groupie. Funny though is that I randomly pick up a t-shirt this morning, and guess what, I am wearing the one you sent me last January…

    Ok so here is my guess:
    1; 4; 5; 7; 10; 16; 22; 30; 31.

    I am pretty sure I've never seen these ones before in your portfolio.
    I am not sure about the 7, but I am sure that you took the 22 with the d90 when you were playing around with it.

    Here are some pictures that might feel like new in your portfolio but I've seen before:

    6 – I think it was in your portfolio before this update. I think it came when you updated it with picture from dubai (I guess the one in the sand are from dubai…). Maybe your last update was done when you changed your website design – trying to browse my memories…

    8 – I think I saw it before, but I am not sure. The fact it is a minimalistic image and not as graphic as some other ones does not help my mind…

    15 – I do not know if it was in your portfolio, but it was probably in your set from Paris.

    19 & 23 – I saw them before. 19 when you were comparing your work with other's idea in a previous. 23 at least in a few videos. I guess they were in your portfolio too…

    24 – see 15 comment.

    Ok it was enternaining to play with my memories, but now I have to go.

    If I win a frozen pizza I would like to send slice to all the one who tried to guess.



  53. Chuck December 18, 2008 at 10:48 am #

    I’m shocked so many people are so far off on this:

    10, 12, 15, 16, 25, 28, 30, 31

    I dont understand some of this artsy stuff. Alot of my stuff is postcardy and cliche’d, but I dont understand how number 2 (the shopping carts) is legitimately art, or even remotely worth being in your portfolio. It seems like alot of “Fine Art” photography has this snapshot, “what?” quality to it. Can you enlighten me?

  54. Brian C December 18, 2008 at 11:09 am #

    Chase, screw guessing which photos are new in the portfolio. Get busy making the NZ landscape shots into a book. They are fantastic.


  55. pleonasmaticul December 18, 2008 at 11:24 am #

    Sooo… you were going for the Ansel Adams look right? :)
    I like the first one. Don’t know why but that kind of colors/contrast appeals to me lately.

  56. Scott Kennedy December 18, 2008 at 12:08 pm #

    Chase – love the NZ images, you know how near and dear to my heart that landscape is – and you nailed it. the tonality and the feeling of calm within the images is fantastic. great work!

    as for the new images here are my guesses: 4,5,7,8,10,15,16,19,22,24,25,30,31. that’s my gut feeling!

    Kia Ora Bro!

  59. Matthew Fogarty December 18, 2008 at 12:49 pm #

    OK Chase, I’ll try.

    8, 13, , 15, 16, 18, 19, 25, 28, 30, 31.

    I love the natural light sources exposed this way. Makes you want to squint into the sun!

  60. "Jeff" December 18, 2008 at 12:55 pm #

    David Hobby first brought you to my eye when you were using flash in daylight in a hot over the top way. It wasn’t too much light, but light that said only one guy does this. Some of your shots have lost that sizzle that was fun to try and figure out. The teenager with the 40D is a bit harsh, but fits more now that I think about it. I hope you haven’t lost your way…

  61. david December 18, 2008 at 1:03 pm #

    Hmm, 5, 7, 10, 13 and 14 i think.

    The rest, we’ve seen it all before :o)



  62. test December 18, 2008 at 2:10 pm #

    Great work as usual!

    I´ll just note the ones I remember from the only time I looked through your portfolio. That would give you the same information but I look a bit better since I´d not guess that all that I can´t remember are new…

    From before I remember:

  63. Sandra (On, CAN) December 18, 2008 at 2:12 pm #

    1, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10,15, 16, 22 (from songs for E&D; shoot), 28, 30, and 31.
    I'm 99% sure that's it since your last update.
    P.S. Thanks for being the epitome of the complete opposite of what I'm taught in school. I can't wait to graduate from my photography program and use my own brain. Some day, I'll be free.

    Wow! That seems like a lot. Were 4,5, 22 and 28 shot on your D90 test shoots? Random thought…

    Work looks great! Keep killing it!

    So, I saw that I might be able to get a high five, and I thought piece of cake, I visit at least once a day.

    In the end, visiting that frequently hurt my chances of a high five, because I’ve seen your “new” images so many times now that the old ones blend in with the new.

    I’ll just leave it at that :)

    Oh, thanks for finally posting some of your landscape photography!
    Must have been amazing to soak in that scene!

    Well I think that I like your new portfolio. Looking through it now I think I live every image!

    Here’s the ones I think are new…

  75. FkLUg80Nsf7O1MaPv.siFcRAr60JzqDCvw-- December 19, 2008 at 6:08 am #

    WTH? nobody said #8? I think that’s one i’ve never seen on there before. 11,12, 15,16,17,18,21. 28. 30. 32. Those I’ve probably seen before in some videocast or elsewhere, but not in the livebooks set.

    great work!.

    Very nice landscape pictures, Ansel Adams would be proud of that work.
    I study some blogging skils in my advertisement lessons and I find in your blog always a source of inspiration. I love this kind of dialogue.

    25 – is the sickest photo in there.

    23 – is an extremely hot angle, subject, and t-shirt on the right. (left too, of course) Have the girls send me an e-mail. Or atleast tell them I said hi! :)

    Not a favorite, but is that person doing a backflip in 32? Niiice!

    Your landscapes are, ‘eh’, basic standard for the locations you were in. Most are flat; you should start thinking about adding more ‘pop’ with interesting foreground matter. It’d be tougher to actually get to the places you were at than to make those images. But keep up the work here, you’re moving along; nice graphic material. Also, if you like black and white landscapes, study Bradford Washburn, you ‘definatly maybe’ know of him.


    The image “After The Storm, Climbers on East Ridge of the Doldenhorn (11,952′) in the Swiss Alps” is ‘one’ of the most incredible landscape photos you have seen. (notice the foot prints leading from the left of the frame to the climbers). Imagine climbing ‘Mt. Huntington’s Incredible North Face. Alaska’?

    3 names – Galen Rowell, Art Wolfe, and Frans Lanting

    You must be getting a kick out of seeing everyone’s guesses! How engaging.

    My hazed memory tells me:

    3,8,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,18,19,21,23,24,25,27,28,30,31,and 32 are the new ones.

    You da man, keep on inspiring.



  78. Aaron Leclerc December 19, 2008 at 9:49 am #

    Oops the 3 before 32 is obviously 31

  79. Jujee December 19, 2008 at 10:18 am #

    guessing here.
    1, 5, 7, 10, 16, 31

    Love the way that it looks, and love what you are working on. If showing what we want to shoot really works, then I hope you are having fun, cause the iamges have a TON of energy

  82. Nathanael Gassett December 19, 2008 at 7:35 pm #

    Can I just say WHOOO! You posted your landscape work! I saw a glimpse of it in the PhotoShelter talk way back when, and wanted to see more. It’s fantastic, I love the light and tones. Positively brilliant.

    As far as the new portfolio goes… I don’t remember seeing 1, 4, 7, 8, 16, 17, 19, 25, 30, 31. (Good thing I already have a pizza, eh?)

    First time commenting here…
    I’ve been following your work.. Must say.. You’re an inspiration!

    From what I remember of the portfolio I think the images that have changed are 1,4,5,7,8,10,13,15,16,18,21,24,27,28,30,31,32.

    The pic of the tatoo ‘diabetes’, is from the project ‘songs for eating and drinking’ .. not sure if I had seen it in the portfolio or in the blogpost… :)

    The problem with remembering what was in your portfolio before is that I think I’ve seen some of the shots, but not in your port. Anyhow… Here goes my attempt:

    1, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12, 15, 16, 18, 24, 25, 26, 28, 30, 31

    I’m also a bit on the fence about 22. I know I’ve seen it before but don’t know if it was from the portfolio or somewhere else on your blog or something.

    Really dig the new porty.Sure – not ALL of it is up my alley – but any decent artist should be able to sense context, purpose and intent. And you seem intent on loving what you do. Amen to that, brother. Looking forward to your projects, that’s where I really get into photographer’s style.

    Keep it up, mate, you’re doing inspiring stuff. And as for the teenager with a D40-thrash: I’m a pro and having a BALL with my K1000 (even it is only for fun!)…

    Sorry – not entering the game.

    chase –
    your shots from enzed make me homesick. i studied photography at massey in wellington, but it’ll be five years ago this spring since i’ve been there. great work — especially #13. i remember being amazed by all the glaciers and that cool green water in the rives from all the glacial deposits while i was on the south island. love seeing yet another dimension of your work!

A lot of people have not had a possibility to attend an established college or university nonetheless seek the improved earning possibilities and career advancement that a Bachelors Degree provides. Still other individuals might have a diploma in one field but wish to pursue something they already have an interest in.

    Thanks for your post. My partner and i have always noticed that a lot of people are needing to lose weight simply because wish to show up slim along with attractive. Nevertheless, they do not usually realize that there are additional benefits for losing weight in addition. Doctors claim that obese people suffer from a variety of conditions that can be perfectely attributed to the excess weight. The good thing is that people that are overweight and suffering from several diseases are able to reduce the severity of their own illnesses by simply losing weight. It is possible to see a steady but noted improvement in health whenever even a slight amount of fat reduction is obtained.
