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!
