For many young photographers, getting to experience a large-scale studio shoot involves working as a PA and spending a lot more time taking lunch orders and carrying things than thinking about photography. But tomorrow, photographer and social media** mogul**, Chase Jarvis, will be giving visitors to his website full access to his shoot via a live webcast. Between the hours of 10 AM and 6 PM (Pacific), he’ll have the webcams rolling to document the entire process as he shoots an album cover for “alt-country/punk” band, Brent Amaker and the Rodeo.
The schedule on Chase’s website suggests that the broadcast will cover everything from set building, styling, all of the shooting and even the set breakdown. While you probably won’t be able to stay glued to your computer all day to watch, there are sure to be some valuable bits of information dropped during the set-up and the actual shoot. If nothing else, you’ll get a peak at a process that can be very secretive. No sandwich-fetching required. -Stan Horaczek
