Well-known photography writer and Editor of Nikon World Magazine, Barry Tanenbaum recently described Chase Jarvis' work as, "dynamic and dramatic, compositions infused with energy and motion...both art and craft, commercially savvy and smart."
Born and raised in Seattle, Chase Jarvis grew up skiing at Stevens Pass. "Long live Cowboy Ridge!" he says. He's been a season pass holder since he was a youngster, way back in the early 1980s. As a world renown sports, lifestyle, and popular culture photographer, Chase's images breathe a compelling freshness sometimes technical or conceptual, other times authentic or raw that is rarely seen from an established commercial shooter at the ripe age of 35. Known for his artistic vision and boundless energy, creative directors, art buyers, and photo editors around the world gravitate towards Chase's style and location sense. He has for 10 years been creating stunning photography for mega-brands like Volvo, Nike, Apple, Microsoft, Columbia Sportswear, REI, Philips, Jeep, Red Bull and hundreds more, as well nearly every niche active-lifestyle company in the marketplace and many of the world's largest magazines.
Chase has garnered the respect of his peers by winning countless awards and the attention of pop culture, art, celebrity, and technology magazines, as well as podcasts, TV, and numerous online buzz centers. He has earned the titles Hasselblad-, Nikon-, and ASMP Master, and if he's not the only photographer in the world to be recognized as such, he's certainly the youngest to do so. With all this already under his belt, he is quick to bring his career back to humble basics. I'm happy that it's mostly about creating
and collaborating with great people, meeting challenges, and keeping perspective.
