A great talk between Chase Jarvis and Zack Arias about life as photographers, failures and successes whilst answering questions live from viewers and followers on twitter.
I fired a question out to Chase and Zack via twitter -
“After becoming inspired by something or someone what's the next step in the creative process for you guys to make your inspiration work”

Quoted below – They both said that once you have been inspired by something or someone then yes get is down on paper, lay it out on a white board then go do it.. don't get bogged down about the details or worry about how or where.. Just Do it!
"Nobody's impressed with the stuff in your head. We're impressed with the stuff you put out in the world. Just Do It!”
