Updated iPhone Portfolio

Thanks to your feedback from this post a couple weeks ago, I updated my iphone photo portfolio today. Please take a spin thru. And in keeping with the spirit of this post, feel free to tell me which ones you like, but be sure to tell me at least one that sucks and how it could be improved.

I’m rotating the content of these portfolios quite frequently now–finally letting go of the drama associated with “a portfolio”–so I’ll continue to keep you posted.

iPhone portfolio is here.

[Get my iPhone photos of the day by following me on Twitter (@chasejarvis). These images also make to my Facebook fan page, occasionally with some commentary. Love to have you join.]

    Great portfolio as usual. However, the second link to the port in the blog post is busted. ('http://http//www.chasejarvis.com/#mi=2&pt;=1π=10000&s;=0&p;=5&a;=0&at;=0')

    Just FYI.

    Uh Chase. The link to the gallery is busted…. Or I’m all thumbs. no pun intended.

  3. Amanda Manfredi April 28, 2009 at 11:18 am #

    These are great! Are you uploading them directly or do they get post-processed?

  4. Zak.Shelhamer April 28, 2009 at 11:22 am #

    SIck man! Great idea for sure, I get my new phone today can’t wait!

  5. Dartanyon Race April 28, 2009 at 11:24 am #

    Link fixed now. Thanks to all who pointed that out.

  6. Krystal Kerr April 28, 2009 at 11:36 am #

    The escalator and taxidermied hawk are my favorite… I think it’s great to have this portfolio – keeps things fresh and different and it’s nice to see that you’re always shooting!

  7. garyallard April 28, 2009 at 11:49 am #

    The hawk & blinds is pretty fantastic. Also really like the monorail / Westin building and some of the other architectural abstracts. The pendant lamps also tops the list.

  8. Chase Jarvis April 28, 2009 at 12:18 pm #

    @ amanda: only processing with iphone apps.

  9. Mark April 28, 2009 at 12:23 pm #

    I have shared your iPhoto gallery with 5 friends at work today–we’re all stoked, and can’t wait to get to shooting, with the camera always on our hips already. Do you still use Camerabag and Pano?

    Thanks, beautiful work!

    Your iPhone portfolio is really great. There is something I wonder about though. To me all the pix look all a bit more melancholic and moody (and I love that) than your typical “Chase” shots on your website. Is that just me or is it really so?
    Anyway thanx Chase for your creative energy.



  11. Jake Hurlbut April 28, 2009 at 12:56 pm #

    Chase, amazing pics you’ve got in your gallery. I really like pic number 29. But, I don’t know about pic 26…. By the way I don’t know if you know that this facebook group exists about you:

    Love the kaleidoscope-ish #3, and the (lonely) contrast of #13. (Also love the lime green Weber simply because it makes me really want a lime green Weber). And the hotel lobby lights still make me dizzy (and I like it).

  13. stephenzeller April 28, 2009 at 4:49 pm #


    Your iPhone portfolio is very inspiring and has actually motivated me to add some Apps to my own iPhone for processing images.

    If I had to chose an image I wasn’t fond of, it would be number 7. The sign and the factory seem to compete for my attention and so it’s a distraction for me.

    Thanks again for inspiring us all!


  14. David Burke April 28, 2009 at 6:09 pm #

    I can’t say that any of them suck, but if I had to choose 1 it would be #7. I think it would benefit without the sign in the foreground of the image. The Factory itself makes the image.

    Your portfolio of iPhone images goes to shoe that it is NOT the camera bro. Thanks!

  15. Felipe B April 28, 2009 at 6:10 pm #

    I love it. Great way to make young people think about passion and composition as part o creative role.

    Thank you!



  16. daniel pape April 28, 2009 at 6:54 pm #

    Which iPhone apps are you using….

    for processing?

    for uploading?

    Thanks for sharing the inspiration.

  17. Matt Beaty April 28, 2009 at 7:09 pm #

    Love the shoes on what I assume is a moving walkway. Easily my favorite. The Hawk is probably my least favorite… The composition throws me off.
    Sweet photos, as usual. I think the black and white shots are the strongest.

  18. Chase Jarvis April 28, 2009 at 9:24 pm #

    @ daniel. most of my basic iphone mojo is really simple and can be found here:


    uploaded using twitterfon to my @chasejarvis account, use facebook mobile app for the facebook stuff. and move images thru via aperture or iphoto to get images to my livebooks website.

  19. B. April 28, 2009 at 9:43 pm #

    Good stuff, this is (and the tips are very much appreciated). I’ve been doing something similar with my iPhone for several months, though I’ve been posting to a blog page (and you might say my interests are more rural)…


    (That, and while I try to avoid too much Photoshop jiggery-pokery, I’m not completely immune.)

  20. Catherine April 28, 2009 at 10:24 pm #

    Amazing shots…I can’t believe these are all on an iPhone they’re not dim or dusty at all! Just goes to show it’s the photographer not the camera ;0)Awesome job!

  21. Valerie Ardini April 28, 2009 at 11:49 pm #

    I love this gallery, it’s very inspirational. I have taken lots of photos with the iPhone myself, but never too seriously.. mostly snapshots of things ‘on the way’ when my camera was out of reach. Might ‘steal’ your idea and use this as a tool myself though- if you don’t mind (and with that I mean, doing the daily iPhone photo, because pressuring myself to try and make something as often as possible is usually very motivating)
    Thanks for sharing!

  22. Ivan April 29, 2009 at 12:04 am #

    “finally letting go of the drama associated with “a portfolio” “

    Can you expand on this?

  23. frosty April 29, 2009 at 5:23 am #

    Chase – These are brilliant, and thanks for sharing the tools you use.

    But tell me – how do you do the pictures with sharp focus in one small area, and the rest out of focus? There’s one of spoons and a plane window that seem to do this. Is this done with software?

  24. BilloBallo April 29, 2009 at 5:55 am #

    yes, Chase, you’re a hipster

  25. Justin April 29, 2009 at 8:00 am #

    Chase, awesome work! See this pic – taken by a friend with his iPhoto and not edited in any way – for additional proof that a photographer’s eye is their most important lens.

  26. TheSundayBest April 29, 2009 at 8:52 am #

    I’ve spent a criminally long time debating my next point and shoot…seeing what you’ve done here makes me think I just need to get one, anyone, and have it with me all the time.

  27. Younes Bounhar April 29, 2009 at 9:00 am #

    I am just stumped. This is an incredible shot. Great vision and creativity (yet another proof that the photographer makes all the difference, not the camera).

  28. Chris April 29, 2009 at 10:57 am #

    I liked #3 – the swirl of colors and looking up at the lamps – great shapes and texture. Cool idea – you’ve got some nice reflections. I also love the toilet paper holder – that’s generaally the way I find it so it’s something all of us can ID with.

  29. Dartanyon Race April 29, 2009 at 3:19 pm #

    t least some amount of irony in having a gallery of iPhone images that can’t be viewed on an iPhone (Limitaion of Livebooks). So to that end, We’ve made up a little iPhone version of the site! We are working with Livebooks right now to get auto discovery worked out, but you can point your iPhone to http://www.chasejarvis.com/iphone

    Amazing! Inspiring photos. Congratulations – what an eye you have.

  31. fas April 30, 2009 at 12:15 pm #

    What an eye or what a camera or lens?

  32. Chicago photographer May 2, 2009 at 6:51 pm #

    Lovin’ the shot of the birds over the water. Least favorite (though I still like it in a general way, but you asked for one we liked least) one of the escalator shots. Maybe just because there’s two in a row. I don’t know why that makes it seem less special.

  33. life coach May 5, 2009 at 2:05 am #

    Thanks to all who pointed that out.

  34. stenbergphotography.com May 5, 2009 at 8:30 am #

    Chase! I love your modern style and originality that you always seem to have in your day to day photography. I aspire to become a great photographer like yourself and follow your work along with your freinds Zack A, Mcnalley etc.

    Your I phone portfolio is pretty cool and has a lot of different posts that flow together and have a similar feel to them. You use a lot of LINE and shape in these photographs. There are a few however, that are still great photos but I do not think belong with the others. I think they ruin the cool flow I get from the others. Like I said cool photos, but no flow (like Zack A would say ;)

    They are Bird with blinds #2 – no ‘artistic feel’ for me. Just a bird on a gross color blinds.

    #18, 19, 20 (van, restaurant booth, natasha left)- they all seem to kinda go together and perhaps with the motel pic as well. They are all faded looking but they do not have that Line and shape abstract fine art quality the other images have. If it were me, I would ditch.

    Same with # 24 breakfast face..

    Anyways, I can’t say enough about how much I love your photography and feel like a douch critiqing a great pro like yourself. I mean, come on like who am I? Just another photographer trying to make it. And don’t worry, my stuff is not up to par yet on my websites and I know it could you a lot of cleaning up. Hope things are well with you!


  35. Eric Kotara Photography May 6, 2009 at 12:54 pm #

    Absolutely great gallery. You have totally inspired me to use my iphone and camerabag more. If only it didn’t keep crashing but supposedly there is a fix waiting for approval from the app store.

  36. Ronnie Fernandes May 9, 2009 at 7:54 am #

    Hi Chase,
    Had a look at your Iphone portfolio and it has inspired me to think of buying one.Are you sure the ‘Apple’ guys are not in there with you? :)

    You really Eat,Drink and S_ _ T! photography as your story telling photo of the empty toilet roll tube shows!!!

    Having seen,and heard you at GPP along with David x 2, I am fired up to start a blog,but having trouble getting a focused topic.
    Don’t want to be like an ostritch burying his head in the sand..to quote you.

    Cheers and keep the inspiration coming.

    I dig the picture of the shoes on the moving walkway. Simplicity in patterns, something I seem to forget time to time looking for a great picture. The whole gallery seems to have an organic feel, a “hey look at that” if you will, except the picture of the bamboo in the mirror. It feels staged.

    On another note I came across your stuff via Joe Mcnally’s blog. And this iPhone gallery was just the thing I needed to get me out of a creative rut. Great work all around. Cheers.

    Although the convenience of email cannot be denied, the act of receiving and reading a snailmail letter is by far the better experience. So kudos to you!
    I understand that the letters are not personalized, but are they physically signed by the sender? That would be such a great touch and one particular for which I’d gladly pay more. Perhaps the sender could sign a small percentage, so that a randomly chosen few each individual week would possess a little extra thrill.

    Bruel was born Patrick Benguigui throughout Tlemcen, Algeria,
    on, may 14, 1959. Their father abandoned the household when Patrick was merely a
    year old, because 1962, after Algeria won its independence, his mummy moved to France, eliminating inside the Paris suburb regarding Argenteuil.
    A great soccer player in the youth, Patrick first chosen the
