Fresh Face: Bonafide Media

Hi guys!

I want to give a huge thank you to Josh, the Founder of Bona Fide Media, for giving me a complimntary photoshoot in exchange for this article on my blog. He is a very talented photographer, and I want to inform you guys about his various talents and services in video and photo.


My name is Josh Jones and I’m a Chicago based media creator. I grew up just outside of Columbus, Ohio and was obsessed with watching movies. My sister is the one who got me into them and one day we decided to make a video together when I was around 10 years old. It was a stupid little kung-fu movie, but after that I was hooked! I started making videos with my friends and for school projects, loving every minute of it. In High School I started getting real gigs and had some of my first jobs then. Since, I’ve been constantly making videos and taking pictures, both for fun and for pay. I’ve mostly worked under other people and was finding it hard to truly express the ideas I had. A lot of creative resistance can come when you have a boss, so I decided to fix that problem and become my own boss. That’s where Bona Fide Media came along, the video production company I now run. I specialize in music videos and short films, striving to make the most authentic and raw content I can. I’ve loved every second.


Bona Fide Media is a media production company located in Chicago and founded by Josh Jones (see photo on the left). We do everything from corporate videos and commercials to music videos and portrait photography. We are experts in all areas of media. 
Our mission is to tell your story visually in an authentic and genuine way. The world is filling up with too much superficial and fake content so our team is willing to put in the extra effort to ensure your ideas are presented in the best way possible.

Living My Best Life Tour: Studying At Harvard, Winning Awards and Walking The Runway!

  Hello all! Thank you so much for returning to my blog and reading this post. I have so much to tell you all because the last few months have been CRAZY! I'm not even sure where to start. I guess I'll begin with the awards that I have been so blessed to receive within the last two weeks. I have NEVER in my entire career of almost a decade managed to take home five awards in such a small time frame! I received two Virtual Visionary awards for Entrepreneurship & Community Service, two awards given by the Sara Williams Scholarship Fund with proceeds benefitting research at St. Jude Children's Hospital, and a Service Leadership award from the pageant system that I represent as their current Miss World, the Miss & Mrs. America Nation Organization ! It was so much fun to have the honor of strutting the runway at their Nationals Fashion Show a couple of weeks ago alongside my amazing sister queens! Prior to this, I hadn't modeled in a fashion show since I was a Fashio

38 Underrepresented World Wide Talents That You Need to Know!

In a world where so many great entrepreneurs and artists can become famous at the act of one viral video online, it's easy to get lost in the misconception that with social media's "power," anybody who is talented is already known. After all, it isn't as difficult to gain exposure and "get big" as it was 20 years ago before the Internet's Massive Media takeover, right? Partially yes, however, social media also makes the market 10x as saturated as it was 20 years ago. Thus, are you really that much further ahead if all of your competition has the means to one-up you, free of cost and inconvenience, just by posting to their online accounts? It's a lot to think about. That is why we here at The Fresh Faces Project work hard to make sure that the artists and entrepreneurs and do-gooders who are underrepresented and don't get the fame and acknowledgment that their talents merit are given a platform. That platform is us. When creating thi

Living My Best Life Tour: Chicago Fashion Week 2021 + BTW, I Have A New Pageant Title

It's been a while! Throughout my relentless grind to meet my goals for 2021, I haven't had the time to blog on my OG website, Fashion Thunderclap. However, I have a few very cool things to share with my beloved readers here that prompted me to MAKE TIME and publish a long-overdue article here. The main thing I want to discuss today is how AMAZING my experience was at Chicago Fashion Week 2021 presented by Fashion Bar ! I was so happy to be invited as a media guest for the 5th year in a row! My love and gratitude goes out to the organization and its Founder, the esteemed Tony Long for always extending the invitation and producing some of the best fashion shows around! As you can see in the photos, I have on a new sash. I was crowned Miss USA Universe Tourism 2021 in January and have pledged to do as I did in my reign as Miss World America Nation and make a difference, big or small, in all seven continents of the world, especially supporting those in line with my platform of
