Listen Up Friends

Things should be hopping in 2012

Don’t consider the following post my official official announcements on any of these items but I am presently planning on the following…

Stay tuned for more info and better yet SIGN UP FOR THE NEW JARVIEDIGITAL NEWSLETTER

What I’m Planning – In Chronological-ish Order

1. Several Months of Traveling Everywhere to do a mixture of the following:

a. Presentations

b. Full day Portrait and Flash workshops

c. Travel Photography

d. Open Booking Portrait Sessions

e. Photowalks and Meetups

2. Big Photo Event in Utah which should include

a. Festival of Color / Holi – photoshoot – Check my past pictures

b. Photo Competition – The first Photographic Decathlon

c. Print Competitions

d. Meetups and get togethers and possible classes or workshops

(Held the last week in March… so clear the calendar)

3. Workshop Bootcamp

A 12 day 12hr a day workshop held in Utah early May

Covers pretty much everything.

Which may be combined with an exchange internship-like option.

4. Bolivia Travel Workshop

A 11 day travel and landscape workshop combined with the help of The Colby Brown

Happening the end of May – Beginning of June

5. Wedding Season

Yes I’ll still continue to do weddings and am even leaving a significant amount of space open for the summer season to book weddings.

I will also be willing to book weddings during the time I designate as “Traveling Everywhere”… people just need to jump on it soon.

6. Europe

I will be in Europe for an extended period of time starting at the end of the summer to do a wedding.

I will stick around for more “Traveling Everywhere” based on interest of those in Europe. See #1

7. More Traveling Everywhere and Anywhere

When I get back from europe I’ll continue to be willing to go wherever people want to see my smiling face and do some of the things found in #1

8. Meanwhile the whole time I’ll be working on putting together a super gallery of Fine Art Prints to make your walls happy.

People ask about classes and internships often.

I usually put the tasks back on them to test their sincere interest and because I have to see where to actually invest my time and if it’s worth it.


  • I love teaching – and yet have limited time.
  • I have several photo projects needing work – and yet have limited funds.
  • I have many people asking to assist and intern and put on classes and workshops – and yet there is only me.

Stepping up to the plate

I recognize I’m not the best photographer and so my establishment of a school should not be a belief that I am the most qualified.
Merely that I’m the most willing to actually make it happen, the most creative to think it up, and the most crazy to actually try it.

Not sure what the name is, so for now it’s either Jarvie U or jDigital U – I’m open to input

I have grand ambitions how this project/school/opportunity can help everyone

  • Help each student become great photo editors and great photographers
  • Help with my work on my photography
  • Help with the ATP and ETW projects
  • Build a community that exercizes pay it forward learning
  • Build a community that actively seeks new, exciting and creative learning experiences
  • Build a school experience that actively promotes the students and a community that promotes eachother.
  • Build a community that can point to an achievement that garners respect and attracts attention for the members of the community.
  • Build a community of photographers who believe excellence of craft before deception, who improve their craft and respect for their clients and therefore improve the name and the art of photography.
  • It can also help other photographers and of course people looking for photographers.

It’s more than an internship becuase it includes

  • Classes
  • Field Trips
  • Photo Trips
  • Assisting experiences (with many photographers)
  • Reviews, critiques, QA
  • And many more benefits

Yet it is still somewhat an internship

  • Because student-interns still come and assist in the office learning first hand Photo Editing and Photo workflow and also emphasize in another area of their choice.

How this can be done? (How can Scott stay sane)


I am looking for Interns, possibly a Personal Assistant, and web programmers.
