Misadventures in Stock Photography: Part the 72nd (Everywhere Guy)

Congrats to Laura/Adara, who won Cup Check (Blue Line Hockey #3) by Stephani Hecht! Cup Check was released by eXtasy Books on May 1.

Welcome to another edition of the Misadventures in Stock Photography! Today we’ll be meeting Everywhere Guy, whose real name is Jimmy Thomas. I haven’t done a Misadventure with Jimmy Thomas before because, well, he’s everywhere (his stock photo site notes that he’s on over 1000 covers) and it just seemed too easy. But then I made a little bet with myself that I could do an entire Misadventure from one publisher’s Jimmy Thomas covers… and I won! Not just a Misadventure, but an epic Misadventure!
