Hey reddit, I'm Chase Jarvis. I’m a professional photographer who has shot campaigns and directed commercials for many of the world’s top brands, including Nike, Apple, RedBull, etc. I’ve been nominated for an Emmy for my work documenting music culture, and I contributed to SnowFall, the Pulitzer winning NYTimes story called by some “the future of journalism”
I’m also the co-founder of CreativeLive, an online learning platform with millions of students, reaching every country on the planet, offering 1500 classes and 25k lessons from more than 1000 of the world’s top experts. We have had more than 2 billion minutes of video consumed on our platform and we host classes from people like Tim Ferriss (NYT bestselling author “4 Hour Workweek”), Reid Hoffman (Founder, LinkedIn), Anne Geddes (photographer and NYT bestselling author), and Alex Blumberg (host of Startup and former producer of This American Life) and others. Our goal is to transform the way people learn by giving them access to the world's greatest experts.
Also as a bonus, we created the following package just for redditors: a Freelancer's Toolkit with specific, actionable tactics and videos on how to launch and grow your career as a freelancer. It's available FREE at http://creativelive.com/reddit.
Ask me about creativity, cameras, entrepreneurship/starting companies, action sports, music, education, whatever. Excited to be here. AMA!
UPDATE: Thanks so much for all of the questions! I've gotta run, but I'll continue returning to this thread later this evening and on a regular beat for a while, so look forward to crossing paths, answering more questions, and generally being more active on Reddit ;)
