Chase Jarvis is one of the most successful and in-demand photographers currently working. In this extremely insightful interview Chase talks about his early years chasing a PhD he really didn’t even want. How society and family put expectations on you that aren’t your goals — but theirs. How he decided to not finish his PhD and made the leap into photography. How “listening to your gut” is important in finding success. He also goes over how he created the highly successful website creativeLIVE. It connects artist/entrepreneurs with experts for live online education.
