A beacon of creativity with boundless energy, Chase Jarvis is
well known as a visionary photographer, director, and social artist. In
The Best Camera Is The One That’s With You, Chase
reimagines, examines, and redefines the intersection of art and popular
culture through images shot with his iPhone.
The pictures in the
book, all taken with Chase’s iPhone, make up a visual
notebook—a photographic journal—from the past year of his
life. The book is full of visually-rich iPhone photos and peppered with
inspiring anecdotes.
Two megapixels at a time, these images have
been gathered and bound into a book that represents a stake in the
ground. With it, Chase underscores the idea that an image can come from
any camera, even a mobile phone. As Chase writes, “Inherently, we
all know that an image isn’t measured by its resolution, dynamic
range, or anything technical. It’s measured by the
simple—sometimes profound, other times absurd or humorous or
whimsical—effect that it can have upon us. If you can see it, it
can move you.”
This book is geared to inspire everyone,
regardless of their level of photography knowledge, that you can capture
moments and share them with our friends, families, loved ones, or the
world at the press of a button.
Readers of The Best Camera Is
The One That’s With You will also enjoy the iPhone application
Chase Jarvis created in conjunction with this book, appropriately named
Best Camera. Best Camera has a unique set of filters and effects that
can be applied at the touch of a button. Stack them. Mix them. Remix
them. Best Camera also allows you to share directly to a host of social
marketing sites via www.thebestcamera.com, a new online community that
allows you to contribution to a living, breathing gallery of the best
iPhone photography from around the globe.

Together, the book,
app, and website, represent a first-of-its-kind ecosystem dedicated to
encouraging creativity through picture taking with the camera that you
already have. The Best Camera Is The One That’s With
You—
shoot!

Chase Jarvis is having fun with his iPhone. Which is cool. Several of these pictures are really great. Others are nice, or just so-so. But the point of the whole thing is to show that you don't need gear to take interesting pictures. You just gotta shoot a lot and pay attention to what's around you. Cool things can happen.

jarvis writes the dirty little secret of the great photographers was takings lots of pictures. the suggestion that if they throw enough against a wall one will stick. i disagree, look at the contact sheets of great phographers, most are v. good, some are great and only a few are poor, but only one could be chosen for an add or a layout.
the thought that the rest of us w/out the eye or talent could be one of them?

This book is mostly photos with few words. I was inspired by the way Jarvis captured his life and experiences using only a camera phone. I would like to make a similar book about my life.

I enjoyed this book but it is essentially a collection of images, not a "how to guide". Even if you just want somehting to spark ideas, the images a bit dated. If you join Instagram or EyeEm (app-based social photography sharing sites), you will find many many iphoneographers with quirkier, more inspiring ideas. If I had found this a year or so ago, I would have loved it, but after reading "The Art of Iphoneography" and "iPhone Obsessed", you are already beyond this book.

99% pictures. 1% words. The perfect mix to show you how to take an artworthy photo.

Beware: if you are a vegan, vegetarian, or animal rights activist you will find at least 4 images offensive.

I was looking for a book about iphone photography and this is about 95% his iphone photos from 2010! It seems dated now that I look at the filters and how far the iphone camera has come along.

I wanted to love this book. I love art made with unlikely tools. But I think it couldn't decide if it was a photo journal or an abstract photography art book. As a photo journal it was disjointed and not personal enough. On one of the few pages with text, the author writes, "some pictures tell stories. Others ask questions," we'll there wasn't enough story in these for me, plus they weren't chronological. As an art photography book, it needed further editing.

Awesome and inspiring photos. Chase's main message, other that the title, is that pictures don't have to be clear and clean and beautiful. They just have to say something to you, how you feel in the moment. They are about capturing what is there now because it will change as the years pass because nothing lasts forever. And when in the moment, you have to take to photo with the camera that's with you, which is almost always the one on your phone!

My friend Kara Murphy gave me this book and it's a neat quick "read". Since it's a photography book it sits on my counter as a perfect way to see what you can do with the camera on an iPhone, and, more importantly - to remind you that there is beauty everywhere, even in the mundane - it's all about perspective!

An inspiring book that encourages you to really take a good look at the world around you via your iphone camera to discover that art and life is all around us. Great idea to start our own iphone galleries!

Great book. Fun and entertaining. It emphasizes what you can do with a little imagination and "the camera that's with you." Chase shows you what you can do, his new iphone app gives you the tools...now go, create and share!

An example is set in this book: Concise, deep thoughts are phrased in simple, large type among example images of how those simple-to-say pieces of advice can be put to good use.

I was disappointed in this book. I had hoped to see some really inspiring photography but only a few of them "moved" me or made me think "Wow! I wish I had taken that!"
