Countdown to Jarvie Promo + Contest
{ONE AMBITIOUS DAY}

Many may know that back at the beginning of October together with the help of a lot of friends I attempted something very ambitious.
In one day:
- I traveled 400 miles
- Photographed in 6 different areas in Utah.
- Photographed over 30 photoshoots of over 30 different people
- Most pictures I’ve ever taken in a day.
- Photographing from 5am til midnight

{VIDEO}

It was all documented by my friend Devin Graham
And will be made into a short artistic video about the awesome day in the life of a “cool” photographer on a fun Photo-roadtrip with friends.
Think: Artistic visual recap of the Photo-Roadtrip along with some happy upbeat music.

PT 2 – PROMO
There will also be another longer version more in the style of a Promo / Behind the scenes.
Which will have people talking, have behind the scenes clips from the day and include some cool testimonials.
This will be a video I can use to promote myself… aka… make people who’ve never met me understand more about who I am. (The photography, the quirkiness, the sexiness, the randomness, the love of photography … ya know, lay it all out there.)
While we had a lot of my close friends there and there were a few opportunities to say a few things for the camera and though I haven’t heard any of them I’m guessing it may be a little on the spot with the camera in the face and without a lot of time to prepare.

{CONTEST}

So what I’m saying is: I’m challenging people to make a short quality video answering the question “Why Jarvie?”
Giving the random people out there a glimpse into who I am.
Ya know… Why I can get away with starting a contest about myself and it’s less douchey than if other people did it.
I’m doing PR
… you probably understand that viewing my pictures only go so far… people spend a lot of money to feel confident and secure and to be around someone they can be themselves around and have happy memories of their wedding or whatever they’re hiring me for.

Think:
Smart, professional, silly, random, over the top, simple… it can all work because I fit into all those things.
The key is… CREATIVITY
Here’s partly where I got the idea… while at dinner with Angela. We had just spent the day filming something for a Doritos commercial contest.

I’d say no longer than 30 seconds and probably more like 10-20 seconds if you want it to be in the official promo/testimonial.
But doesn’t mean I can’t use longer videos and reward them. I can put them on my youtube channel or share them from your youtube to my website or blog and or social media.

{Prizes}

I’ll announce more details as they are determined.
The grand prize winner will probably get “A day with Jarvie” for either a photoshoot of the winner and/or photography training.
OR
They will get a package of a bunch of prints. (Good for those out of state)

If there are multiple awesome videos and we use other clips in the official videos, or my new website which is being designed, I’ll make sure to reward those as well… think discount on photoshoots or prints.
Again more details are forthcoming … as they are decided.

{Update Each Day}

I will be releasing a new picture, from this epic photoshoot, of a different person each day up until the video is released.
Check Gplus (http://jarviedigital.com/plus) and Facebook (http://facebook.com/jarvie) as I’ll probably post separate ones on each social network.
