Chase Jarvis Turning Frowns Upside Down

We have a lot of speakers that have graciously consented to participate in our Town Halls, but only one brought his own DJ. I first met Chase Jarvis at the Microsoft Pro Photo Summit a few years ago, and he was one entertaining dude. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that he’s a Nikon and Hasselblad Master at the tender age of 35.

But lest you think that Chase is just yucking it up for laughs and self-promotion, you might change your mind when you find out that he gave $1000 to someone in the audience when they revealed their plans for helping the photo community. And even more significantly, he’s involved in the largest copyright infringement case ever — having turned down a $400k settlement on principle that it would screw photographers down the road.

So enjoy the ninjas, guns, and group photo with his Apple iPhone but learn something too. Turn that frown upside down!

    Chase’s talk was great. Very inspirational. I regret he is only presenting in NY and not SF where I’ll be attending. I’m looking forward to watching the rest of the videos from the NY event. Thanks for recording these and posting them. Jim
