What Chase Jarvis has to say isn’t mind-blowing or revolutionary but actually is because as he explains; nobody is talking about it. So what’s the “dirtiest secret in photography”. It’s very simple.

It means inspiration comes from everywhere.

In the video he mentions Brandon Stanton of the now world famous ‘Humans of New York’. The thing about Brandon is that his photography is nice but it’s the human story paired with the good pictures that make his work special. It’s what set him apart from the rest and it’s why he’s now able to raise over $3 million dollar for pediatric cancer research.
