Holy sh#*! I quit my job! – Part 1, where I resign from one dream job to pursue another.

For eight years I put my own photographic ambitions on hold. I had seen the side effects of photo assistants and interns trying to concurrently work for photographers and run their own photography careers and have never liked the resulting and inevitable conflict of interest. I decided from the get-go that as long as I was taking a paycheck that said Chase Jarvis Inc. on the top, I’d make that work my only professional ambition. It worked like a charm.

Wow, I totally missed that. Scott Rinckenberger, long time assistant of Chase Jarvis goes out on his own and it seems to turn out quite well. I always liked his appearances on the Chase Jarvis videos and blogposts, so I instantly subscribed to his blog.

Over the last few weeks I saw more and more of his photos on facebook and always asked myself how this goes along with his assistant job, but now I know that he was already on his own assignments. Makes sense.

It’s also worth following Scott on Instagram (scottrinck). He also makes cool videos, I dig that. All the best for you, Scott!

Anastasia Volkova:

у вас бывало такое чувство, что вы что-то безвозвратно теряете? если то, что бередит душу и не дает легко заснуть по ночам – ваше, оно никуда не денется. пусть станет другим, пускай трансформируется во что-то большее и просто новое, но оно будет всегда.

I don’t understand a single word, but I like her photos anyway.

Video Portrait: Elizabeth Weinberg

Very nice portrait of a very good photographer: Elizabeth Weinberg. I’m following her on Instagram (elizweinberg). It’s recommended. (I tried to find an embed code but without success.)
