Fresh Perspective for Creatives: Tim Ferriss chasejarvis LIVE Re-Watch

For those that missed it, we were able to pull together a stripped down re-watch of the recent chasejarvis LIVE with #1 NYTimes best selling author Tim Ferriss. IMHO, this one’s not to miss. Some topics covered:

1. How to break through artistic, creative, & business fears.
2. The 80/20 rule.
3. Who’s your network? You are the average of the 5 people you spend the most time with…
4. Be different, not just better.
5. How to set up a studio from zero to shooting photos.
6. and…ahem…how to make it happen when a super hot bikini model walk on set and you don’t know what you’re doing.

Get Tim’s book The 4 Hour Work Week here and 4 Hour Body here.

**If you like this sort of content, follow me (@chasejarvis) on Twitter–schedule is announced there. And…while I’ve got you…big news. The next upcoming chasejarvis LIVE features the amazing Chris Jordan on September 8th at 11am Seattle time (that’s 2pm NYC, 7pm London). Put it on your calendar.

    “Couldn’t be more inline with what photographers do”…. and everybody in the world really. This is a formula for living and living well. Simple, to the point, authentic, and accurate.

    really entertaining thanks chase, couln’t put more of the live stuff on the podcast could you?

    • Chase Jarvis August 23, 2011 at 4:18 pm #

      the chasejarvis LIVE episodes go to my audiocast on itunes. the hosting bill is way to huge to video podcast 90 min shows. but the point it to WATCH THEM LIVE so that we can all participate in this thing together…

        Hey Chase,

        I have always wanted to know why you chose to use a Nikon over a Canon? Love the blog > if you had to buy one camera now and had to stick with it which would you suggest?

        Thanks for your time and keep rocking!

  6. dean mccoy August 23, 2011 at 4:39 pm #

    Chase I love watching all of your interviews, I have stopped watching TV and my time is now spent taking photos or learning about photography. You are an inspiration and keep up the great work.

    Chase, thanks for having Tim on – spot on. Feeln him.

    First off – I’m a huge fan of your work and blog. I’m also a huge Tim Ferris fan and forever grateful to him. (I actually paid for both his books). One of TIm’s comments irked me and it’s one I’ve been personally struggling with for years. As he said “Work on your business – not in it”. I think he’s actually paraphrasing from another famous business book but it’s generally good advice — Except perhaps for our profession (photographers, filmakers, video directors etc). Here’s the problem – Aren’t we “the business”. Clients hire Chase Jarvis not his “process”. The advice is good if your selling widgets but not if your selling yourself.

    Look at the most successful photographers of 20th century (both in the wealth they achieved and fame). All they did was do great work (which got great clients — important) which allowed them to charge more per job(hence the wealth). They never really “scaled” or “replicated” themselves beyond having some good help and assistants.

    MBA’s give me the same advice all the time like I’m a dummy. And I’m looking for a better answer dude.

    keep up the great work. This interview was great by the way – I’m not hating. Just trying to bring up an interesting point I think.

    • Andre December 13, 2011 at 5:25 pm #

      Hey Brandon, I know I’m bit late to the party but thought I would chip in nonetheless.

      First off, you can be sure that the most successful photographers of 20th century do more than just “do great work”. They sell, they network, the handle complaints, etc.

      Second, even if you’re a photographer, you’re still not your business. For example, if you buy a Calvin Klein jeans, is that pair of jeans designed/tailored by Calvin Klein himself? If you hire David Ogilvy to market your business, is David going to personally work on your campaign?

      Working on your business = getting more clients, making sure your current ones are happy, and yes, creating the process. When it’s big enough, you can even hire photographers to work in your studio (something successful photographers do). They are buying your brand.

    As a novice to photography and a hobbiest videographer I really enjoyed this piece. Thanks for all the behind the scenes. Cheers -George-

  11. Chris August 24, 2011 at 12:07 am #

    Wow, almost 2 hours. Hopefully I’ll find some time to watch it later. Thanks so much for doing these, I’ve learnt a lot from just watching a couple.

    A lot of great stuff in this one Chase. I’l have to rewatch the rewatch at least a couple of times. Tim was very cool.

  14. Kris August 24, 2011 at 8:43 am #

    Great! Thanks for uploading a video, I missed the live broadcast. I always enjoy your interviews, keep ‘em comin’.

  15. Wolf August 28, 2011 at 5:52 pm #

    ..missed the live broadcast, and sure am happy to have tuned in to the re-watch.. Great stuff, Chase, entertaining, educating, inspiring… and all that to one of the (biologically) older fans of yours..
    see you next time…

  16. kentchamness August 29, 2011 at 11:33 pm #

    Chase, I absolutely love your work. You put in time, and you and your team create amazing results. very inspirational. your guys’ camera work is top-notch, and the Chase Jarvis Live setup rules. Please keep it up.
    having said that, Tim Ferriss is a great speaker, and very motivating to listen to. however, his substance is really lacking. He is a genius at marketing and self-promotion. he has mastered utilizing the web to sell- the problem is that his books are baloney, without much research or fact. 2 hours of sleep? sorry. 4 hour work week? He spends 15x that amount of time each week ‘working’ to promote his books. the details of this are debatable, and I love debating crap like this. I’m sure many people will disagree with me, which is fine, I just don’t want the BS to not get pointed out. below is a blog from soemone in the same industry as Tim Ferriss, and their interactions with him:

    It would be awesome to see you do segments on some of the people you take photos of, rad people in the PNW who inspire you, your team and their roles, etc, etc.
    Thanks for all you do, Chase. Whether people like the subject matter everytime or not, your delivery is second to none.

  17. HLG September 10, 2011 at 9:03 am #

    Took me a few days to get through this, but it was totally worth it. Thank you, Chase and Tim, for taking the time to do this! Lots of fun and great information.

    This was a great interview!

    I’d not heard about you (Chase) until I ran across this. I’d been following Tim Ferriss for a while and found it on his blog first.

    I really like the advice of just going out an taking pictures, and lots of them. I’m not a photographer but I can see how this can be applied to any art.

    I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or 2 images. Maybe you could space it out better?

  37. Click That Link September 21, 2014 at 7:41 am #

    I am new to building internet sites and I was wanting to know if having your site title relevant to your content really that crucial? I see your title, ” ” does appear to be spot on with what your blog is about but, I prefer to keep my title less content descriptive and based more around site branding. Would you think this is a good idea or bad idea? Any kind of assistance would be greatly valued.

    Hiya. I noticed your blog title, “” doesn’t really reflect the content of your site. When writing your website title, do you believe it’s best to write it for Search engine marketing or for your audience? This is something I’ve been battling with due to the fact I want good search rankings but at the same time I want the best quality for my website visitors.
