Zach Arias: Transformation & Interview by Chase Jarvis

A photographer I’ve been really digging lately is Zach Arias. This is because I can tell this guy really speaks from the heart and has a very inspiring story on how he became a professional photographer.

Growing as a person and an artist is something which is very important to me. Just ask my fiance as I watch video after video and read blog after blog like Johnny 5 in “Short Circuit” “Need more input!” Below is a video Zach did for Scott Kelby as a guest blogger. It really touched me because after watching it I felt even more focused on the task at hand of being a better photographer and why I do what I do in life. I hope it does something for you too.

Chase Jarvis had Zach on his live show, it’s long but good if you have the time.

“The fact is that relatively few photographers ever master their medium. Instead they allow the medium to master them and go on an endless squirrel cage chase from new lens to new paper to new developer to new gadget, never staying with one piece of equipment long enough to learn its full capacities, becoming lost in a maze of technical information that is of little or no use since they don’t know what to do with it.” – Edward Weston‘s quote Zach Arias uses at his workshops.

  1. Hi Jason, I was looking around thinking how sweet it was that you and your girl are working together in photography! I think it’s beautiful. As far as moving from gadget to gadget and trying out new things all the time… I never understood this. Maybe I am just either not as monetarily free to buy gear as others, but I plan on mastering my little starter camera before upgrading. And even if I am saving a little from every session, it will take me quite some time to reach my goal of a pro level camera… Oh yeah, I also am a mother of three, so funds aren’t exactly falling off of trees around here! Hahaha… Thanks for sharing :)
