Feeling accomplished but yet upset I started my shoot today. I give my assistant a C+ today for pulling models together for my shoot. I got to meet two great models… Danni and Will who turned out to be the perfect launching for my International Campaign.
Yes, Danni showed up first. As we say on the Dynamic beat Crew “He came to serve”. This model came and gave us pure havoc. My camera Lexi loved him and really was ready for the other models to show up and show out.
Then after finishing the first segment for Danni, Will showed up ready to go.
As he brought his strong masculinity ir truly made the mission of the campaign come into play.
This campaign is for all type of guys from models, to actors to regular working class man. Ranging from all walks of life. Gay, Straight, Metro Sexual whoever as long as you are a guy. This campaign will be the photography teaser and spin-off to 2012 Calendar Men as angels which will sell for $19.99 Dec 1st, 2011. While the campaign will launch internationally hopefully making billboards and magazines it will launch successfully.
"As I continue walking on my journey I continue to meet love ones of my brothers which I feel he is walking with me along this journey."
I was on twitter and see that Tionna Smalls was having a Sip and Shop the next day hosted by Ms Misa Hylton. Although I know who Tionna Smalls was I had to research Misa. However never the less, it was almost as if god was controling all the plans and my brother was saying “Just do it Jhonathan”, while I moved. I had just hours prior finished talking to Freddy-O about working on collaborations with his organization he had put together to work it where ever I traveled and to send in footage, which he agreed to.
I then began to tweet Tionna Smalls for the first time about coming and doing footage for filing purposes and being that I was now working with Freddy to submit somethings to him as well. She gladly said “ok come on thru. 377 Marcus Garvey Blvd. I know my boy @freddyo”. So I did that the following day.
Arriving at Loveys Boutique a great experience. Shy, yet ready to do photography and meet all of the great people I will meet with my brother Dariels sister, Tionna Smalls.
So Misa Hylton glamously comes in and speaks to the young ladies about the industry as the Fashion Designer/Stylist and Business Woman.
OMG she spoke so much wisdom it was amazing. I literally had two cameras working it out. I had Loveys camera and my camera. Tionna smalls later said “S/O to the photographers..Yall really did your thang tonight! esp@jpierrecornell he took pics for loveys camera and his. fixed my settings" I was happy for the shot out.
I mean I got to meet Meeka Claxton, Somaya Reece and her team, and Zuri McDaniel. I was honored to meet and film these great folks.
I later then went back to twitter and saw Tionna, Somaya Reece stylist Ricky and other talking about the night. Ricky said “Thanks. Nice meeting u to RT @jpierrecornell: @CtStylist great meeting you tonight…. I love your SWAG….." While Tionna started going in to freddy about my work ethic "@jpierrecornell@freddyo yo he held it down. He had two cameras. G!!!!" I was so please to have yet make another family member to my brother Dariel happy.
I look forward to working with her again at her next one she has, because it was truly educational.
So its raining and my assistant done booked me to do photography for Summer stage in NYC. Summer Stage is a community give back event where Celebrity artist come together to perform for a beneficial cause.
So at this event I was proud of the proof my assistant was doing for me. In the event but yet not in like I’m used to Im still accomplished feeling.
Although I got to hear the force md sing like they was back in the day.
Then I heard great music from my folks from Atl, Jagged Edge
and my favorite Twin of the group
Then I got to fall in love with Melonie Fiona
She song me to become her fan. I mean I literally became in love with her soulful singing… Yes I am now a fan and I had a great night with the assistant.. Even pass the rain.
"As I walk I on this Journey I continue to grow relevant"
Well just as I on my quest to grow bigger and better I began to look for a New York assistant to help me along the way also being my eyes and voice when I am not there for the agency there I am apart of The Star Studded Agency.
I find an amazing individual who gives me the feeling that he is a mini me. Not knowing through the preliminary interview what his sign was, or anything like that I just knew he had drive and ambition I looked for in as my Personal Assistant.
We met in the streets of Midtown for the second interview to make sure that the great phone conversation we had discuss was something that once face to face was true, in vibrations, and body language. It was. We began immediately working on great innovative ideas and for me to do what I do best, “put him to the test”.
So the test was put together by my agent and myself which was to create my new campaign which is now in the works “United as One”
It is such a blessing to have my new assistant. I am glad I have walked down this new avenue. I mean there are so many great things happening globally. His relevance is growing. I love that he is humble, a taurus like myself, and a great mini me. I also love the factor that he has read in his hair just as I do. We will survive and grow into the next International Moguls. The walk is long but at the end success is just like a pot of gold, “It’s at the end of the rainbow”.
"As I reflect on this new the streets and scenaries I am seeing, I walk down this new Paved streets…. I have lost a brother and gain one all at the same time, just how god works."
In January, I was invited to work and assist a photography partner of mind, to shoot a segment for Event Fashion Night Out (EFNO) in Atlanta, Ga. A friend of mine was on the team of putting the event together.
So, there I was there doing the art directing for the shoot as this photographer shot the models. It was my first time seeing this beautiful creation of accessories including eyewear, that was like nothing I had saw before.
Fascinated, amazed and inspired I felt all at the same time of seeing this new extraodinary Line. It felt as if I was approaching an Avenue(store) on Rodeo drive in California. It is a must that for this line you would have to have an aquired taste for it. Then I later met the person behind this new path I had came across and his name was Stevie Boi. Not only had I been amazed by the work but I was estactic to me this individual who after a few minutes of talking to me, made me feel like we had known each other the whole time.
Then I realized my brother, Dariel Pulliams had told me so many great things about Stevie that after putting two and two together I was excited, cuz I felt like a half brother already. Although, I was the little worker bee who kept to say and continued to pave my lane. I continued to watch both from afar make endless accomplishments
So when god called my Brother home, I began to plan a show called Honoring Beauty- A Tribute to Dariel Pulliam. That very instant I knew I needed to talk to our brother Stevie Boi and bring him in on the situation, along with other members of our created industry family.
I was able to reach Stevie and as expected he was on-board of the cause. In addition to me knowing my brother Dariel also assisted him with a few business moves I decided to inform him that “If you needed me for anything just give me a buzz”. Planning continued to happen dates and sponsors began to change. However, I decided to just promote Stevie as much as possible and then come back in full circle and then host the event for our brother.
Well in doing that I was able to realize that folks of my hometown, Jacksonville, Fl had caught wind of this extraodinary brother of mine and booked him for their “Red and White Affair”. As the timing grew closer for the event it seemed as if the devil was trying to play evil little games and I said to myself, Cynthia Meadows of Salon Pk, and my brother “Everything will work out, just breathe”. Just that happened. So there I was assisting him with his event. Not realizing that I had access to be on Stevie Boi Ave. A street that millions of fans and folks dreamed of walking down.

That only lead to Fashion Week in NYC working with the team #SBGorillas as he calls us. Gaining tons of behind the scene shots, meeting tons of great models he used, and to me making me feel as if my brother Dariel was proud of me for stepping in.
So as I continue to walk this road with my brother you can book him at your event by simply emailing email@example.com which mainly is for south and midwest booking. Also, check out his phenominal line at www.stevieboi.com and get you a pair of his hawt line.
