I especially loved the guesses for the most recent Chase Jarvis: ROOM WITH(OUT) A VIEW. There were guesses from something like five different continents – love it. If you knew what to look for (you didn’t), there were certainly a couple of hints (west coast, the parked cars – know it’s not UK or Aussie, etc) but there were also some red herrings trying to place me overseas (1 am in the camera metadata). Anyways, good fun. I was indeed in San Diego. While a handful of you guessed San Diego, scroll to the bottom to see the one clear winner who accurately nailed me on Sunset Cliffs Blvd.
And, of course, here are some behind-the-scenes snapshots from the trip to help share my life on the road:
Here’s the big ol’ place we rented to house the traveling crew. Not quite up to par with our preferred digs, but then again it was spring break in San Diego, and space down there was very limited. Nonetheless, across the street from the beach, with a breathtaking view. Lots more photos after the jump – click the ‘continue reading’ link below …
The crew for one of our evening shots posing in front of the Digital Capture Systems van we rented for our location file management – thanks Carson! Yes, yours truly with the ridiculous specs in the foreground.
We had some seriously early call times. Here’s a snapshot of my iPhone – we’re leaving for location, waiting for sun to come up and it’s 5:27am. Who ever said this job was easy?
I scored a really cool pair of Iron Maiden vans.
I’m ripping off the still frames while Cody and his mohawk shoot video over my arse..er…shoulder.
Scott grabbed this cool frame of my lens, the sunrise, and a line of runners, using my trusty Canon G9.
iPhone grab of a weird wall of people.
Inside the Digital Capture van with digi tech Carson, right hand man Scott, Gary the PA, Sarah wardrobe/apparel, and Nick the AD guzzling random alcoholic beverage #5.
iPhone grab out of the sunroof…our convoy leaving an evening location. We had a shot with this really cool 60’s convertible Porsche.
The crew watching the sun go down, just minutes after grabbing the final shot of the week.
Taylor Christian Jones from Alabama somehow nailed my location exactly, recognized the fence he said. Now let’s keep the payoff for him – you guys peruse his site and blog (some solid band/music photos) and I’ll send him a t-shirt. Nice job Taylor.
Lastly, if you’re at all interested in these snap-shot-y documentations of our travels and shoots, I’ll invite you to check out a recent addition to this blog’s behind the scenes stuff: We’ve started a Flickr pool called Chase Jarvis Crew Shots. We’ll be uploading to this constantly – outtakes from my camera, our personal point and shoot’s, whatever. We haven’t uploaded from our San Diego trip yet, but will this week, so check back. Reminder – it’s poorly/not edited on purpose. You’ll likely find bed-head, boogers, party pictures, out of focus pictures and more.
