But taking it back to the beginning, it all started with a 12 year old boy borrowing a camera from his mom.

He won multiple contests in High School and once he realized he had a real talent for photography, he started branching out and reading books on branding and marketing to set himself apart from the competition.

And no doubt, he did just that!

For the last 2 decades Jason had been photographing celebrity athletes and elite fitness models for numerous campaigns, magazine features, and front covers.

He’s also directed multiple documentary films including My House and Undisputed starring 4x Mr. Olympia Jay Cutler.

In this podcast with Jason, he takes us through the start of his passion and how he landed jobs shooting for Modeling agencies, Adidas and Nike…all by age 18!

Jason goes in depth on his experience of working with some of the worlds top athletes and gives you his advice on how to break into the industry you want and setting yourself apart!

Don’t miss out on this exclusive podcast with the King of Covers, Jason Ellis!

Enjoy the show!

Sam Bakhtiar is the Co-Founder of Camp Transformation Center that has impacted thousands of lives and grown to many locations with a vision of becoming a household name globally. From 1-1 personal training to expanding their offerings to group training which proved to be very affordable, they decided to expand into other areas and people liked the model so much that they decided to franchise this concept which proved to be successful. Being raised by a single mother, Sam immigrated from Iran to Pennsylvania, America after a series of bombings and fearing for their lives, his mother decided it was best to leave the country for a better life. After not making the cut for the basketball team, Sam went to the local boys club after his mother told him that he should start training and try out again the following year. However, Sam was fascinated by the people training at the gym and their physiques which inspired him to train to become a Champion Bodybuilder.
