About The Class

There's a common misconception that artists have a monopoly on creativity… But the very act of making waves - no matter the career - is a creative one. The Chase Jarvis LIVE Show is an exploration of creativity, self-discovery, entrepreneurship, hard-earned lessons, and so much more. Chase sits down with the world's top creators, entrepreneurs, and thought leaders and unpacks actionable, valuable insights to help you live your dreams in career, hobby, and life.


In this interview, he shares a few great stories of how he used the resources he had access to get his career off the ground, how he thinks about the progression of his career, and how he stays passionate about every day of work. You’re going to love it.

  • Nigel didn’t get a degree in photography; he looked outside of photography and outside of fashion for inspiration and career guidance. This helped him build creativity into the DNA of his career and say yes to growth opportunities that seemed risky at the time.
  • Nigel leveraged his experience of being a model into being the photographer he would have wanted to work with. He deconstructed every set that he worked on and built everything he learned into his workflow.
  • As a creative, you get paid to execute on a vision, regardless of how many quirks you introduce into your process.
  • The ingredients to Nigel’s success were learning his craft, having a passion for it, and being compassionate to himself. He lives the value of doing his best, regardless of how it compares to how others are doing.


Nigel Barker is an internationally renowned photographer, model, entrepreneur, TV star and author. You’ve seen him as a judge and photographer for 18 seasons on America’s Next Top Model, starring alongside Naomi Campbell on The Face, and as the host of Top Photographer.

Oh yeah, and he’s published two books- The Beauty Equation and the New York Times bestseller, Models of Influence. The dude stays busy.
