How & Why We Get Hired :: Interview with an Art Director

In case you missed the last chasejarvisLIVE, we posted the above video excerpt of my interview segment with art director/creative mojo/REI brand manager Jason Sutherland. In this video interview, Jason shares wicked insight on how photographers get selected for jobs, where he and his art director/creative director peers look for new talent, how he judges your work, why, and a whole lot more.

The above vid is only a portion of the full broadcast. Here’s a reminder on how this smorgasbord of chasejarvisLIVE content is shared so that you can get it how you want it going forward…

1. To get the full broadcast, and to be able to ask your questions via chat and twitter, you need to watch them LIVE on the day that they occur, or enjoy the rewatch posted exactly 12 hours later for those on the other side of the planet. For schedule and notice about when/where these are, follow the blog, twitter, Facebook.

2. Just 24 hours after the live broadcast we will post a full audio-only podcast version, downloadable here via free subscription in iTunes (or here via rss feed). I’ve heard from lots of you that… …having this recording in their possession so they can listen anytime they want is useful. As such, we’ll continue to post these.

3. Approx one week after the LIVE show, you can get a video excerpt–not the full show, but a segment chopped outta the show to share some of the content–via my Youtube channel (subscribe here). This saves us on edit/upload effort and hopefully encourages you to tune in live and participate in the worldwide conversation that happens on that day.

Lastly, what is NOT a part of the above replay from chasejarvisLIVE but IS AVAILABLE via a video podcast exclusive, is my 15 minute interview with the wildly inspirational explorer Mike Horn. ||UPDATE: That video is also available at the bottom of this post!|| Mike is hands down one of the most motivating and personally inspirational people I’ve ever met. The VIDEO podcast exclusive is available by subscribing here in iTunes for free [or for the non-iTunes folks via RSS here].

There you have it. Lots of free content in a bunch of different ways. LIVE broadcast, video podcast, audio podcast, youtube, twitter, facebook.

Get some.

thank you very much for the mention

To Dawn and everyone else…

If you want to suggest yourself or another photographer you believe should not be missing on the 500 Photographers website, please go to the following page: and follow the instructions. I do check all the websites that are submitted but there is only room for one photographer each day.

To Jason Sutherland, thank you very much for the mention, it’s very much appreciated.

Friendly greetings, Pieter Wisse

How does one get on this 500 photographers list???

Ed Verosky says:

I like the fact that creatives/buyers are looking for whatever it is they deem “authentic.” For most, it probably indicates a desire for something with more depth rather than just a workable set of images/video. Does it translate? Sometimes. But even more important is that the more people make it known they are looking for something real, the more photographers are going to focus on what they know and how THEY see, rather than just trying to replicate a look they think they can market with more success. Whether the buyer’s search for authenticity is sincere or not, it might encourage the photographer’s search for something more — to reach a little deeper.

lou bopp says:

Chase, love this interview, and all that you do for our “community”. I’ve been shooting ads / commercial work in NYC for about 15 yrs.
Three years ago decided to spend most of my free time in Mississippi shooting the last wave of older delta blues musicians, an era about over. No assistants, producers etc. Old school. Got a book published, out this month which was nice, but the way that project spiked the creative juices in was deadly man. It’s all about following the passion & let nothing get your way, and if does, plow through. Thanks.

Julie says:

thanks for sharing. Could anybody tell me the titles of the books please ? Except the War of Art that I’ve already read, but couldn’t get the others titles. thanks a lot

Philipp Ulrich says:

Jake Hanocck says:

Thank you for taking the time and sharing this. The interview was insightful. It is not often I hear some one talking about the relationship can improve a results as appose to just building transactions!

THANK YOU THANK YOU Great stuff and its fantastic to see how a real relationship between client and photographer should work.

MikeD says:

Loved the interviews and wanted to share them out. Real bumer of them being on itunes only. I wont install iTunes on my computer because it is the worst running program I have ever installed on my computer. I was so happey to get off my iPhone just do I didnt have to deal with iTunes anymore.

Dartanyon says:

Mike, you can always just grab them from the original feed links … through anything that parses XML or RSS. No itunes necessary.

This is the feed URL you will need to access the CJ podcast:

I used this URL with Winamp and have had zero problems accessing the media.

Dan says:

Awesome information. Thanks to both you and Jason!

Any chance of getting a separate video that contains the amazing conversation you had with Mike Horn?

I believe the Mike Horn bit is available on the Chase Jarvis iTunes podcast.

Dartanyon says:

Indeed Mike’s interview is in the video podcast referenced in the last paragraph in the blog post.

Dan says:

Doh! I hate asking questions that have already been answered…now to figure out this podcast thing…I don’t ever use/subscribe to them.

Thanks for the nudge in the right direction :)

I caught most of this live, but re-watching this cut has definitely helped fill in the blanks from what I did miss.

I really love how you and your team put out amazing content on a regular basis. This is motivation for me to do the same, and I promise you I will be paying it forward when the time comes. :]

Chris says:

Amazing interview! Thanks.
