Seattle photographer Chase Jarvis has been capturing images and teaching people how to make better ones for years. Now he’s going to be doing it with the help of Apple.
Jarvis is teaming with the tech giant for a collaboration called Photo Lab: Crafting Your Shot, an endeavor that will bring classes on photo technique to more than 500 Apple stores around the world.

Jarvis is the founder and CEO of CreativeLive, which he calls “the largest and best education platform for creatives and entrepreneurs.” It’s been a landing spot for aspiring photographers looking to learn tips and tricks through online classes.
Now the creative team at Apple will pass on that advice through a curriculum co-developed by Jarvis. In an Instagram video on Thursday, Jarvis spoke about Photo Lab and provided a behind-the-scenes look as he introduced it all at Apple’s flagship San Francisco store.
Here’s a description, from the CreativeLive site, of what to expect from Photo Lab:
There are three things you can do to make a great photo: connect with your subject, compose your frame, and shape light. In this lab, taught by Apple Creatives, you’ll get hands-on with fun and immersive exercises built on Chase’s three techniques.
“It’s really clear that photography is rapidly emerging as the only really global visual language,” Jarvis said in his Instagram video. “With what I’ve done, plus CreativeLive, it’s clear that I’m passionate about creativity and learning it. … This is a cool next step because it allows us, and or me, to put the vision in real life experience with Apple, and them having such an amazing global footprint, them creating the most popular camera in the world, it was just a no brainer that we could come together to do this.”
