Beyond the Image Podcast

At the age of 15, my sole priority was to look impressive to others, particularly girls. This singular motivation inspired at least 98% of every decision I made, including what I wore, how I styled my hair, etc. It was even the reason I changed my name from Jimmie to James.  A significant decision of mine at this time was to walk away from playing baseball, which I had played for the previous 10 years, and instead join the high school football team. I was far from talented or skilled. But, my goal was not to be a star football player. My goal was to look like a star football player. ...

Beyond the Image Podcast

Imagine a lanky, lazy, fatuous 19 year old me. I wanted money. I desired wealth. But did I want a real job? No! I was the 3rd assistant manager of a record store. We actually had no employees outside of the managers. I had no one to manage and was still at the bottom of the totem pole.    The record store did not pay well and most of my paycheck went to the outlet mall food court meals. I needed some extra cash. The Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory was the store next door and planning to open a kiosk across town in another mall. The owner asked me if I was willing to pick up some...

I spent the better part of the last hour looking over the most common, overused, cliche, and annoying phrases that are being used on dating app profiles. I did not do this for myself or my own entertainment, I did this for you.    You’re probably curious what some of those phrases are.   “I’m an open book.” “Looking for a partner in crime.” “If my dog doesn’t like you, it’s just not gonna work.” “I like to have fun.” “I like to have a good time.” “I love to laugh.” “I’m down to earth.” “I’m laid back.” “I’m looking for a friend...

It was 2017 when I received the biggest news I had ever received in my entire career. For the 15 years prior to that moment, I had photographed countless fitness talents for countless fitness magazine covers.

I had been training for two and a half hours a day. 6 days a week, for the past 5 months to get my body to a place where it could be photographed and properly...

Beyond the Image Podcast

My first brush with an online business was a little janky. I wrote this ebook but had no idea how to automate the delivery of the ebook. So, what I did was took the ebook and posted about it on Facebook to let people know about it. When people expressed interest, I would have them PayPal me $29.95. Then, I would email them back a copy of the PDF ebook.    This meant that in order to fulfill every order, I had to respond to every message letting people know of my PayPal email address. Then, upon receiving payment, I had to get their email address and send the ebook one at a time....

Beyond the Image Podcast

If you listened to the episode earlier this week, you might think that I hate photographing for magazines. Maybe because of the title. But if you listened, I’m sure you heard it was filled with a lot of satire. The truth is, I love the magazine industry. It’s an industry that I’ve been a part of as long as I’ve been a photographer. My first job outside of newspapers was at a magazine. I launched not one, but two publications in the last year. I’ve been obsessed with working in the media, going on two decades now. But in that time, I’ve watched publications cease operations, go out...
