How the World Learns – Julian Germain Captures Classrooms From Around the Globe

If you come around these parts often you know that I have a keen interest in education. The fact is, in order to find success in a creative career or otherwise, learning what’s most important and executing against it is critical. In short, if you want to kick-ass at your job, hobby, passion, life… you need to learn how to learn (see my homie Tim Ferriss’ creativeLIVE course from last week. Tim took us on whirlwind tour of some of the key concepts in his new book The 4-Hour Chef which officially launches and is available TODAY.)

As I watched Tim from the sidelines of our set at creativeLIVE – proud of this free learning channel – and wondering, on one hand how many countries were tuning in to our broadcast (somewhere north of 100)– but on the other hand, how many could not. How many people around the world were in a far different world than us… focused on the physical classroom out of necessity, opportunity, gratitude… I learned in physical classroom, as I’m sure most of you did too. We can all relate to those weird all-in-one desk/chair thing, the smell of chalk, the sound of a bell telling us that class is over — and it is a powerful and shared human experience.

It was in this vein that I recently stumbled across the work of Julian Germain and his Classroom Portraits series. Started in 2004, Classroom Portraits are photographs of physical classrooms full of students from all over the globe. Russia, Nigeria, Cuba, Taiwan — the man has covered some serious ground on this one. [Take a look at some of the classrooms visited in the gallery above.]

Germain’s images are many things, but more than anything for me, they remind me that the global education system is being re-imagined NOW, and will see a complete transformation in our lifetime. What will it look like it another 20 years? These portraits will become even more powerful. #Respect for Julian Germain and this impressive piece of work.

Class dismissed.

Be Bold, Be Different [chasejarvisLIVE re-watch with Snowboarding Legend Travis Rice]

You’ve heard me say it before – don’t sink all your effort into being incrementally better. Instead be DIFFERENT. Be BOLD.

This episode of chasejarvisLIVE was focused specifically on this simple idea. And my special guests for this episode epitomize this ‘different’ and ‘bold’ mantra as well as anyone I know. Like all of my guests, these guys aren’t ensconced in the “this is how it is” photo industry – they’re innovators from a parallel universe….

Yes, Travis Rice is the best snowboarder in the world. But what makes him the subject of this #cjLIVE is not really his skill. It’s that he is an innovator, a risk taker, a visionary the star of the most progressive action sports film ever made (The Art of Flight). He’s a bold and creative leader in his crowded and noisy industry.

Some take-aways from this show:
_be bold – as in snowboarding risk is a part of the game
_be different – build your own way down the mountain -as Travis did with SuperNatural)
_get used to hearing “no” when they say your idea is “crazy”… you’re probably on the right path
_protect what you believe in- know when to be the one saying “no”to opportunities that are not the right fit.
_life is long- the amount of things you can create, learn and share in a lifetime is massive.

Analogously, Chad Jackson hails from Brain Farm Digital Cinema. He and his partner Curt Morgan are the makers of the most innovative, high caliber and DIFFERENT action sports films in the world (eg. The Art of Flight). By using unique techniques and special cameras (like the phantom), leveraging relationships and their special vision, they have broken away from the old action sports film paradigm to set a new bar, a different bar.

It was an enlightening experience speaking with Travis and Chad. Enjoy the re-watch.

Friday Beats – Fresh Espresso

Here’s another joint from the Capitol Hill Block Party episode of chasejarvisLIVE we hosted back in July. Fresh Espresso is the delightfully dope combo of P Smoov and Rik Rude. These Michigan natives have been bringing beats to Seattle with their many musical collaborations for years. Most notably the MCs have mixed it up with P Smoov’s other well-known Seattle group Mad Rad. On Fresh Espresso’s latest album, Bossalona, P Smoov makes the beats, raps, and sings. Rik Rude raps. Trent Moorman rips up the drums and Terry Radjaw is the DJ. This album has been getting great reviews. Here’s a quote from Seattle’s best curator of new music – KEXP.

“This is another smooth and smartly crafted set of hip hop incorporating elements of electro, jazz, R&B and other styles. It’s a fun yet substantial set with synth-driven tracks featuring a variety of funky beats and occasional horns and other instrumentation accompanying the duo’s colorful and sometimes poignant rhymes.” -Don Yates – KEXP

Smoov and Rude’s set on cjLIVE was full of irreverence, masterful tethered samples, witty lyrics and moved along with smooth beats. It was a pleasure having these guys on – and their continued collaborative and creative output in Seattle-based groups continues the enlightened tradition of “206″ musicians sharing their talents with each other.

Without a doubt, the audience is the beneficiary of this attitude of sharing. Call it musical transparency. Everyone wins.

Eyeist.com Helps You Build a Kickass Portfolio

In case you missed our December 6th, 2011 episode of chasejarvisLIVE, it was all about the portfolio. We had Allegra Wilde, visual strategist and co-founder of eyeist.com on the show, talking about common mis-steps and some of the best ways for your work to get noticed. She even gave us a quick portfolio review and a sneak peek at her upcoming service eyeist.com. Yesterday Allegra and her partners launched their product for the world. Check it out here. It’s a service that will truly help photographers worldwide.

The company has assembled a team of over 50 reviewers, who are among the most respected photo experts and authorities in the field including Photo Editors, Publishers, Photographers, Advertising Agency Art Buyers, Photo Agents, Gallerists, Museum Curators and more.Registration and image uploading is free at Eyeist, and photographers can purchase their review from an a la carte menu of services including selecting a Basic Review and receiving a recorded oral critique, a Website Review, a Live Review in real-time using Eyeistʼs innovative interactive workspace, or a Photo Editing andSequencing review of their photography project. Base prices range from $100.00 to $350.00 and photographers can request a specific Eyeist Reviewer or ask to be automatically matched with a reviewer according to their needs. All of the reviews at Eyeist are completely private, but as an added public feature, there is a section of the site in which Reviewers can highlight work that has been submitted by photographers during the review process. These projects will be showcased in a specially curated “Reviewers Choice Gallery” which provides an open acknowledgement for the photographer in the eyes of the Eyeist Review Team. Allegra comments:

“Weʼve seen plenty of public forums that comment on photography, but this is the first time that experts have been given their own platform to contribute their opinion on what theyʼre seeing—and liking—all in one place.”

Same Love — MACKLEMORE & RYAN LEWIS’ Latest Effort: “The Heist”

Back in July we had MACKLEMORE & RYAN LEWIS on chasejarvisLIVE as part of our Capitol Hill Block Party broadcast. They did an interview with me about their new track “Same Love.” Check it out above. Today that track, part of their new album “The Heist,” hit #1 on iTunes. The video, featured below, is powerful and beautiful. Great message. Great music. Enjoy.

New Music Dropping Today — MACKLEMORE & RYAN LEWIS [video]

Last year we were fortunate enough to host some great friends on chasejarvisLIVE — perhaps the fastest rising hiphop act in the country — MACKLEMORE & RYAN LEWIS. Today the Seattle duo independently released their latest work: “The Heist.” The effort brings artists like Schoolboy Q and Ab-Soul to the table in a 15-song album. It is their first project since 2010′s re-release of their debut The VS. EP and it is AWESOME. And I’m not the only one who thinks so — they are in the midst of a world tour that has been selling out everywhere. [They will be in Seattle Friday at the WaMu Theater]

They joined me onstage to drop knowledge about staying true to one’s art, the evolution of creativity in a digital age, and more. And as a massive bonus, they followed it up with a fresh-ass LIVE set. We’ve cut the set up into individual tracks – here are four videos of awesomeness from MACKLEMORE & RYAN LEWIS.

Pitch Your Creative Vision [chasejarvisLIVE rewatch]

Last week I hosted author and pitch guru Oren Klaff on chasejarvisLIVE. Wow. I knew it was going to be good – but we had no idea that there would be such a huge reaction to Oren and the information he shared from his book Pitch Anything. The community has been talking about it all week. So here it is again for your viewing and eternal viewing pleasure. Oren is not only the purveyor of more than $500 Million (yeah- read that twice) in successful pitches in a variety of industries – he also happens to be hilarious. Watch the episode to hear some of his epic quotes. He and his book – and a simple framework of how to make YOU and YOUR WORK become “the prize” — has helped me perhaps more than any other book on “selling” AND I think he can help you too.

Believing in your work is not an F-in tactic. -Oren Klaff

If you’ve been around my blog or this community for long, you’ll know that my focus is photography and directing, but most of all my guiding mantra is about living a more creative life – whether a photographer, filmmaker, designer, chef, painter, dancer, whatever. While we LOVE to focus on tapping into our “creative side” – take it from me, if you ever want to have a chance at earning a REAL LIVING with your creativity (or, hell, even making even a dime with your work) then being able to PITCH and SELL your work is essential. Don’t make me say that twice. The age-old idea of the starving artist is a sad, boring, and tired one. Better learn to talk about, position, pitch and sell what you make. This episode gives a road map to getting started.

Any of this resonate with you?

_ ever had anxiety about how to present your work to a client?
_are you confident with your skill as an artist – but discouraged by your ability to get paying work?
_have you ever seen a major campaign/exhibition and thought, “I can do better photos/film/copy than that?” …and wondered why you’re not getting the job?
_do you know that the demand for creatives going UP and is one of the fastest growing segments?

I already know your answer to those questions above. Check out the mission critical re-watch above for all the goods.

Special thanks to our cjLIVE show sponsors: HP, Broncolor, Manfrotto and B&H. We genuinely love what they do, make and sell.

The Lumineers on chasejarvisLIVE [video of live performances part 1 of 2]

 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 Next

I had the Lumineers on the show back in April. They’ve been on my radar for a while, probably one of my favorites right now. As anticipated they brought down the house for our privileged in-studio audience. Since that time they have been lighting up stages all over the globe – including an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno in July. They are on their way to stardom and deserve every bit of love they get. Incredible artists with a rich sound that simply makes you smile.

The crew and I snapped some behind-the-scenes photos of their appearance on chasejarvisLIVE. Click through the image tabs above to check them out.

Below are vides we cut of two of the songs they performed on the show. I’ll be releasing more next week. Stay tuned. Enjoy.

The Next Big Thing [I'm Serious]: REIGNWOLF

Prepare yourselves. The age of Reignwolf is upon us.

After personally witnessing multiple insane performances by Jordan Cook, aka Reignwolf, that’s the feeling I get. He’s upon us – and brings a no-holds-barred guitar, soaks it in an electrocuting sweaty stage presence and then punches it home with the grittiest devil-may-actually-care voice and lyrics. Sometimes he plays with a band – other times, like in this clip, he’s a one-man storm that showcases rare talents like ripping on the drums with one hand and his guitar with the other, picking with the drumstick, breaking lightbulbs and covering the stage with his…well… let’s just say it’s the real deal folks.

This clip is from a few weeks back when Reignwolf brought his thump and stomp to our special chasejarvisLIVE broadcast form Capitol Hill Block Party VIP lounge. The kicker? You can’t even buy his music yet. Forthcoming on iTunes and you saw it here first. And if you ask nicely, we’ll kick, bite, beg + scratch to get him back to a full, proper #cjLIVE this fall.

[please help me promote this guy. he's so worthy. share it]

If you go to his website you’ll see some other live performances. He lets it all hang out. And it’s all good. We’ve been waiting to show you this.
