There is a bear within me. It hibernates from time to time. Sometimes for months, other times for years, but when the bear within me awakens it becomes increasingly harder each time to ignore it. My bear represents my desire to be creative regardless of the medium I choose to express my creativity with. Now after a lengthy hibernation, the bear within me is stirring and the bear wants to be free.
It’s been a while since I’ve featured a photographer I admire, but now is a better time than any to talk about a photographer I admire, Chase Jarvis. In a previous blog post I wrote about how Scott Kelby was a photographer I admire and like Scott, Chase has been very influential in who I am as a photographer. Chase is a man who wears many hats. Photographer, director, educator and business man just to name a few. While Scott Kelby teaches and talks about the technical aspects of photography and all that in encompasses, what Chase teaches is something more important to me than the technical aspects of photography. He teaches me how to tap into the creative that is inside me and how to unleash the power of that creative.
