NEW YORK, Oct. 19 /PRNewswire/ -- PDN PhotoPlus International Conference + Expo announced that award winning photographer and social media master Chase Jarvis will present his underground online show, "chasejarvisLIVE: Creativity and the New Social Art of Photography" direct from PhotoPlus Expo on Thursday, October 28 from 11:30 -- 12:30 p.m.  This live presentation promises to demonstrate how Jarvis is redefining creativity on a global level by breaking all the rules.



Beyond photography, his early adoption of social media, digital platforms and the democratization of creativity has transformed his artistic vision into a global online movement -- and the largest online following of any photographer in the world.  Bursting with innovation and creative energy -- from inventing an iPhone application, to democratizing education by creating a free online channel, creativeLive -- Jarvis has become the leader of a movement of creative empowerment that transcends photography and puts him at the epicenter of social artistry on a global scale.

As a photographer, Chase Jarvis is both prolific and renowned.  His work has earned numerous professional and creative awards and his client list has become a venerable who's who of global brands including Nike, Apple, Starbucks, and Volvo, to name a few.

"I am honored to share my knowledge and understanding of the redefined landscape of creativity and new media and its role in photography to my peers in the photo industry," explains Jarvis.  "PhotoPlus Expo offers the perfect combination of energy, education, and passionate people who attend the show and have a desire to learn as much as they can about things they may not fully understand.  My hope is they leave my presentation a little wiser and even more energized to go forth and create."

"chasejarvisLIVE will be one of the most enlightening and entertaining presentations during PhotoPlus Expo and a great way to kick-off the trade show this year," says Jeff McQuilkin, Group Show Director for Nielsen Expositions, which owns the PDN PhotoPlus Expo trade show.  "Chase brings the same level of energy, passion, and education that is in line with the goals and objectives of PhotoPlus Expo every year.  We are excited to have him share his passion and expertise with attendees."
