EXPOSED : The Magazine


On January 1, 2011, I joined a dear friend in a personal project. We both signed up to be part of an online community of people who made the commitment to write at least 750 words every day. I didn’t know what the heck I was getting into, but I did it…and for 31 days straight, I sat and wrote. About anything. What came out was simply my thoughts, memories, and outlines of how I started my business. And this wasn’t the stuff I’d already written or shared online…this was stuff I swept under the rug. Until I had a chance to write it all out.

30,000 words later, I knew I started something…now the question was whether I wanted to finish it. In February, with the encouragement of some dear friends (more of those details coming soon), I continued writing. And writing. Well, one thing led to another…which led to some crazy ideas…and then crazy ideas turned into a reality.

It is with great excitement I announce the publication of EXPOSED

If you’re still wondering what, exactly, this is…it’s a 165-page magazine that focuses on the first two years of my business. It highlights the professional aspects of becoming a photographer (everything from learning to shoot manually to posing tips), as well as personal struggles of starting a business (everything from being betrayed by allies to being accused of copying someone else’s work).

If you’d like to be one of the first to order a limited issue of EXPOSED, you can do so by CLICKING HERE. Regardless if a single magazine is read, I will know that I put my heart and soul into a personal project and I couldn’t be prouder of the way my team rallied behind me to make this dream a reality.

Here’s to crazy ideas…and making them happen.

**UPDATE: Yes, we are shipping internationally!** πŸ™‚

    Are you shipping to UK, or is it anyway else I can get hold of it?

    Thank you for all inspiration Jasmine. I’ve gone from a small town Swedish girl with distant photography dreams, to working as a fashion and wedding photographer i London two years later, thanks to strong online profiles like yourself.

    750 words a day! (And on top of the many other obligations you keep) You are certainly able to meet high standards. Sounds like this will be a worthwhile read.

    You are truly an inspiration and I have been following your blog for 6 plus years. It’s what I read with my coffee every morning. Thank you for pushing the rest of us to go out and be someone and to follow our dreams.

    Jasmin, I love your work and big congrats on this incredible milestone!! I would love to get your magazine, but $17.00 to ship to Canada!?? It’s almost the same price as the magazine! Why for goodness sake would it be so expensive to ship next door? It’s a magazine!

    Is there going to be an iPad version?

    The price doubles when I look at the cost of shipping to Canada.

    You bring tears to my eyes! You remind me that its okay to be me…I’m not talking just about photography, I’m talking about life. Sometimes conformity isn’t the only way to go but rather to forge my own way through life is what’s right. You remind me of that and I appreciate it! Thank you for being who you are.

    Jasmine, as I read your post, chills running through my body, following the heat waves. As you did, I have joined the challenge of 750 words a day in the middle of the last month. I have written numerous ideas, a wish list ideas, that have been pondering in my head for a while now and one of them is to publish a magazine. Wishing you all the best in your new adventure!!! Thank you for being such an inspiration to many and believer that dreams do come true! PS Happy to hear that magazine shipped internationally. It will make many PhotoCanucks happy! πŸ˜€

    This seriously brought tears to my eyes… I know, I’m crazy. But this is seriously amazing. You are a true inspiration, and God has seriously blessed you with so many talents. This has been an interesting couple years for me, from getting engaged, researching wedding photographers, realizing a dream (after 6 years of studying photography in college), getting married, having my husband cheat on me, getting divorced, and finally removing head from my behind and doing something I WANT TO DO. Last year, after my divorce I decided to jump head first into a project. Becoming a wedding photographer. I didn’t slowly work my way in, I jumped head first, and booked a wedding on my own. From that wedding last year, I booked 17 weddings this year. All over the state of Michigan. Why did I do this? Because you truly inspired me to chase my dreams, become a better person, enjoy the little things, blog about my dog, you have given me so much courage to be me, and I couldn’t be more thankful for you. I believe God definitely had a hand when I did a search 2 years ago for wedding photographers, and I found you, and the images you shot for Brandon Kidd’s wedding. I have read every blog post from that day on. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. Please Keep doing what you do. I can’t wait to read the magazine when it comes!!

    Jasmine – WOW. This is absolutely incredible! You never cease to amaze me. Thank you so much for letting yourself be Exposed. You inspire me so much. This couldn’t have come at a better time since I just left my job to pursue the dream of being a full time photographer… and still wonder sometimes if I’m insane. But like you said Crazy ideas can be amazing. I ordered my copy today! I CANNOT wait to get it in the mail. Thanks for being you. Love you!

    Just get out of TOWN…. You really are my idol: not only do I aspire to your photographic abilities (and believe me, I’m trying!!! ;)), MY dream has always been to publish a magazine….
    Of course I purchased it within 2 seconds of starting the video, but will admit — for the reason above — my first reaction was, "ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!"
    Maybe we can join forces one day and take over the world. πŸ™‚

    Just wondering if this is a single issue for your own marketing, etc only just in a magazine format or if issue 2 is in the works featuring other photographers, more on Jasmine, etc? Seems to be taking off like wildfire. Well done.

    November 8th, 2011 at 10:04 pm

    Wow, Jasmine – that’s more than 20 miles! Fabulous. Very inspiring. I am keen to click "buy" but with $19 shipping to Sydney – yikes. Surely it doesn’t cost that much to mail a magazine…..? Maybe you need to do a digital version for us overseas folk.

  240. Meredith Sledge

    November 8th, 2011 at 10:05 pm

    Jasmine, you are incredible. The fact that you let the world know of your mistakes is so humbling. You are such a beautiful person. Not only did I just about scream when I saw this post, but I ORDERED THE MAGAZINE FROM MY PHONE. That’s how scared I was that I wouldn’t get one. AHHHH! Can’t wait. And the cover picture of you is just stunning. You radiate.

  241. Troy Baker

    November 8th, 2011 at 10:31 pm

    November 8th, 2011 at 11:16 pm

    I’m debating about wrapping this up for myself for Christmas when I receive it in the mail or just dive right in. I’ll probably spoil my own Christmas present and peek before it even comes close to wrapping paper

    I love your dad’s comment! Made me smile πŸ™‚ I also love that you said you read all your comments a few posts back… I have wondered that and am glad to know you do! Your passion is infectious and makes me want to do photography more, but more than that it makes me want to find something I am truly passionate about because I know as much as I love photography, I am not passionate about it. Thanks for always sharing your passion and drive. It’s inspiring!

    Jasmine, well done, I like so much your magazine already. I only have two questions: would it be possible to add Hungary to the country list? It’s only a small bunch of wedding photographers here who know about you but we are indeed very passionate about what we do and would LOVE to read the magazine.
    If not do you plan to release a digital edition of it, like for the iPad magazine store?

  284. Guybrusch Threeepwood

    Jasmine, this is absolutely INCREDIBLE news! So selfless and generous of you to share all this with us.

    I’ve only been taking photos for a little under 6 months now, I have a lot to learn. Your determination and drive is simply inspiring, you’re a reminder of no matter how tough things get, just keep on at it, persevere and learn, most importantly ENJOY and LOVE what you do!

    I really would love to purchase this, unfortunately, the shipping is a little bit too expensive for where I am in the world, I’m really disappointed about that as I would love to know more about you and your advice πŸ™ I hope you will consider an iPad version! *crosses fingers*

    congrats on the gorgeous magazine. it looks spectacular. might i suggest sending an optional autographed version? i know it sounds crazy but have your autograph on that magazine would just make it feel more magical than it already does. LOVE you (r brand). So happy for you! Thank you for your endless sharing!I’m without a doubt buying myself a copy today.

    Jasmine, thats awesome. Even though I am not a wedding photographer, I am at a crossroads trying to figure out which way to turn. I will order a copy. Also love the fact its a magazine and not a book, pdf, edoc,i what ever. Be different and keep it in print. Too much stuff goes I device these days.

    Look forward to reading it.

    I’ve been following your work, and as soon as I found out that you have published your premier issue EXPOSED, I immediately ordered. I can’t wait to read your writing as you write so beautifully as well as peruse over your photography.

    Jasmine – I have been a loyal reader for awhile, but have never commented. I am a lawyer by day, but have a love of photography and get so much pleasure out of reading your blog. I will be buying your mag and can’t wait to read it. As a hobbist mommy photographer I have already gotten so much out of your blog and can’t wait to digest this. Plus, I am looking forward to giving something back to you by supporting this mag. πŸ™‚

    750 words 31 days straight now that is impressive. I’ve put in my order and look forward reading it all. Best of luck as I admire the hard work there is with a magazine/book : )

    You are truly inspiring in all of your accomplishments! It’s good to hear of not just the good times, but the struggles along the way that made you who you are today. Makes us newbies keep plugging away at our dreams no matter how much we can get down on ourselves πŸ™‚ Congrats!!!

    Hey Jasmine! πŸ™‚ I’m so excited, my guy just purchased a copy of the EXPOSED magazine for meee! But there one teenie weenie problem. He lives in Qatar and has Paypal and since I’m in Pakistan, I asked him to get it for me. He says he has made the payment and also paid the shipping but the form didn’t ask for the address. He wants the magazine to reach Pakistan. How do we do that? Is it reaching Qatar? On the address given in the paypal account? *Confused* πŸ™ Please HAAAAAAAAAAALP!!

    Ahh!! Congrats-so proud of you. I must admit-I teared up when I saw you dad’s comment! Doh… Anyway, just got your mag in the mail & I’m all snuggled up, with coffee-reading it and soaking up the pictures. Anyway, it just dawned in my that "Exposed" has two meanings, vulnerability & camera exposure he he. I’m glad you did the mag-always thought you should do a book-but then there you go again, doing something different-breaking the mold & being oober cool. Again, proud of ya!

    Hi!, iΒ΄m from Spain and my english is not so good. Sorry about that!

    IΒ΄d like to buy exposed, but iΒ΄m not sure if you could send it to Spain.
    And if you could send a spanish traduction.

    I love your photos and iΒ΄d like to learn everything about your job.

    Hello Jasmine! I received my copy of exposed today and read halfway through while taking notes and carefully dissecting your tips in photography and life in general. I love your vision and techniques. I’ll be utilizing the why and "how" approach that you use to further expand my creativity. Thank you for knowing how to relate your stories to aspiring photographer like myself. I’m no pro by any means but I’m looking to prove my skills and pursue my passion in photography more than ever. I ran into your website while I searching for reviews on canon 35mm 1.4. Thanks for the inspiration and for putting together what I consider the best photography book. I wish you and your husband a prosperous 2012.

    Hi Jasmin, I’m a bit confused… is this a magazine? ie. issued according to a schedule or is this a book? It sounds like its a book but I’m confused by the word magazine.
    Would appreciate your clarification πŸ™‚

    April 19th, 2012 at 10:52 am

    I read every single blog post you post ! I really really…. love your stile. I want to know if it’s a magazine that will appear every month, or is it just one NUMERO that gives us a summery of your beginnings? I am impressed by the feed back of the readers so far can’t wait to get mine.

    Hi Jasmine,

    How about selling softcopies of your magazine? It would be easier to "ship" as I live in Dubai.

  403. Amber

    Hey Jasmine – have you thought of offering the magAzine in a digital format. Save on shipping and people get it direct.
