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.

About Me

Hey there! Thanks for stopping by! I'm Calynn, 20x Award Winning businesswoman, media personality and former pageant queen (Miss United States Universe Tourism 2021, Miss World America Nation 2020). I started this blog when I was barely 15 years old in January 2011 as a supplement to my application to the retail business internship at the downtown Chicago Nordstrom mall! I stayed there for 3 years learning the fundamentals of everything fashion business from sales and marketing to media and modeling. This was a phenomenal foundation to my career as it gave me the rudimentary knowledge and competitive edge that I needed to be successful!  From there, I went on to college and obtained my first degree in Business and Humanities (the arts and social sciences). I wrote as a freelance journalist and editor for several large publications and hosted live cable television for two years. I walked countless red carpets being a VIP media guest at major industry events all over the country a

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

However, I certainly have no shortage of fun events to share with you all since my last diary entry/blog article. The Living My Best Life Tour continues. Let's get into it!  8 Day Caribbean Adventure on Celebrity Cruises View this post on Instagram A post shared by Calynn M. Lawrence, MSML (@calynnmlawrence) My mom, baby sister and I were blessed to go on a super fun, 8-day Caribbean cruise that was action packed with tons of fun excursions, great drinks, live entertainment and beautiful beaches. This was all of our first cruise and it was a phenomenal experience aside from being absolutely WIPED by the end of it. We got to visit Puerto Rico, the US virgin Islands, St. Kitts and Neives, St .Lucia, St. Johns, Barbados, St. Thomas and more! Below is my favorite photo from the vac
