photography (and other observations) by John Matthews


Gary Vaynerchuk Shooting RAW with Jared Polin

I can't remember the first time I saw Jared Polin and his videos, but I've always been impressed with his passion about photography and his ability to start his online business from scratch. He began putting out photography videos from what appeared to be his bedroom. Today he has a sweet studio loft and puts out a really well produced show called RAWTalk. What struck me about Jared was that he was never too concerned about what was, literally, in the background when he first started vs. what he was including in the content he was producing. 

Gary Vaynerchuk is someone who I was introduced to through my social circle and I've been impressed with his hustle and candor talking truth about what individuals and businesses need to do to cut through the noise in the emerging age of social media. He has a great new book, Jab, Jab, Jab, Right Hook: How to Tell Your Story in a Noisy Social World, available on Amazon.

I can't believe this interview only has 8k views, it's a great 45 minutes listening to two doers talk about what motivates them and what they have found to be the core ingredients to their individual successes.
