Folks who juice are sexy, no? So are our Friends Who Juice. Which means so is Tim Hancock, a Vegas-based photog/creative director who makes magic behind the lens while ensuring what passes his lips is pure. (We’re talking juice, People. Or are we…?)
In my experience, the biggest misconception about living in Las Vegas is…that all the young professionals here are party animals or conditioned to habits that revolve around, sex, drugs, alcohol, and gambling. That morals and discipline just don’t exist. I am proof of the contrary: I’m focused on an active and healthy lifestyle while staying creative in my line of work.
(…but, the thing I secretly love most about living here is…) that we live in a city that is curated for hospitality. The benefits of that include that retail shops are open late, and there are top-notch spa and dining experiences and unlimited choices in entertainment. So there is never a dull moment on a day off.
My daily mantra or “quote to live by” is…”Put good in and you’ll get good out.” Eating healthy, staying spiritually active, and finding ways to enhance the lives of people around me are ways that I daily contribute to “putting in the good.”
Don’t get me started talking about…The Juice Standard! It is so, so very good (especially since I hate the idea of chomping down on lettuce and veggies). I’d much rather drink a Bee WHealthy™ every day!
Every day I strive to…plant seeds ahead of present day. So many people are out there looking for instant gratification. Not me. I have found the favorable life looking toward future gratification. By nurturing relationships, habits, and projects that pay off in the months or years to come.
Something people would be shocked to know about me is…I am actually adopted into a family that is a totally different ethnicity than me! No matter how different we are, I couldn’t have asked for a better home and parents.
A fave Vegas spot that never gets old is…the movies! I’m so into production, scripts and escaping the world through film.
The health habit I get teased about the most is…no fish. I just cannot stand the smell of fish, let alone bring myself to eat one. But give me a lobster and butter sauce and I’ll inhale it! It’s odd, I know.
I’m both a creative director and a photographer. When people ask about my job and what I do every day, this is what I say: Brands are a visual experience, and I build the elements that make a brand recognizable to consumers through art design and photography.
Some of the most exciting projects I’ve ever worked on are…the television show Global Beauty Masters on the Discovery Fit and Health network; and Billionaire Couture USA’s Las Vegas and Miami clothing stores.
The thing about my personality, or the capability I possess that I’m most thankful for as it relates to my ability to do my job is…listening to someone’s idea and then creating a visual body of work based on my translation of their words.
Being on a red carpet to photograph people makes me feel…as if I have great responsibility to connect the audience of the famed individual with his or her fans. Ultimately, people are people no matter how huge their following is. I am rarely starstruck.
The perk I enjoy most about my work is…the fact that photos build relationships, and when it’s a job well done, the relationships keep growing!
Last year I launched my first magazine called DLXVRSN. Its purpose is to…take the readers into the ultimate version of finer living with over-the top-editorial and celebrity features. At the same time, the publication unravels the talented people and brands that make luxury even possible, with stories about high-caliber professionals and fashionable leaders who are on the rise.
The number one thing I’d tell my younger working self is…“It’s all so worth the person you’re becoming!”
The thing about my work that makes me most proud is…seeing my clients overwhelmed with complete satisfaction! I am good to my clients, and they are constantly looking for the next big project where they can use me.
The fruit or vegetable you’ll always find in my pantry is…TJS’s Bee Grateful. It’s my favorite one that I always try to get!
The first time I drank green juice I thought it was…horrible! But I was lying [to myself], and shocked that it was actually delicious!
The first time I realized I loved cold-pressed juice was…when I had the opportunity to film a series of videos with the founders of TJS!
Today, I drink cold-pressed juice because…I feel amazing when my nutrition is amazing, clean and wholesome!
This is how often I drink juice OR do cleanses and when I like to do them:I drink cold-pressed juices weekly to supplement veggies in my diet.
The thing I love about TJS juice is…that it’s mixed just right every time, so it genuinely is the best tasting option!
My advice to a newbee juicer is…You have options. With all the flavors out there, try them all and work them consistently into your daily life!
