BC Business Photo Shoot Take Two

It seems BC Business wasn’t entirely satisfied with the first photo session. They asked their photographer, Nick Westover, to try again.

Nick tells me the problem BC Business had with the first session was the photos looked too set up and not spontaneous enough. They wanted a more “this is how I do it” look. That’s OK with me because I don’t want people to think I blog in a bath robe.

This time we didn’t take any photos in my office. Instead, we took the notebook and went to the kitchen and bedroom. Once again, I didn’t get a chance to see what any of the new photos look like. However, I’m sure it’ll look better than this one.


Yes, you really can blog in bed. Just don’t fall asleep while doing it. It’ll be interesting to see what photo they finally decide to use. Look for me in the June (or July) issue of BC Business magazine.

    And if it happens to fall asleep, publish what you just wrote, maybe it’s something genius πŸ˜†

    Nice picture!

    1. Marc says:

      Nope. I’ve done it. It’s not genius 😐

    2. john has got a huge bed.

      what a waste!

    3. Gdog says:

      That picture makes you look like you’re 16 years old!

      1. john’d like, wouldn’t he?

  2. blogdinero says:

    The name?
    “JohnΒ΄s tonge in his nonsexis moments”

  3. Wolf Stone says:

    Always increasing brand awareness eh john!?!? I’ve blogged from my bed before, but have not found it to be very conducive to writing.

  4. nice techzone plug:)

    1. Eric says:

      Haha, first thing I noticed.

      And you.

  5. Hey I love that branding on your laptop. Makes for good free Starbucks advertising.

    Some brainwashing with your evil lattes.

  6. Hey

    I love that Techzone on the back of the laptop.

    It looks really awesome.

    And i will eye an on the magazine


  7. Be careful about using the laptop on your legs like that for too long. It can injure the ‘boys’ if you know what I mean. Not that that was an issue with JC but still…. thought i’d throw that out there.

    1. Alex says:

      A short ride on a bicycle would do more damage than a laptop :mrgreen:

      1. Marc says:

        Maybe direct damage, but not internal damage. Have to keep things cool.

        1. Alex says:

          You know what they say – Better safe than sorry!

  8. FameFire says:

    Your picture is nice and reflects the real John Chow. It reflects your dedication for your work, your love for your readers. You fell a sleep while working, what can be more nice than this. It also reflects your innocence nature, just like a kid, who fell asleep while doing his homework. I congratulate Mr. Nick for taking such a nice picture. Good work. πŸ˜›

  9. If you get a Panasonic Toughbook you can blog on the beach and not worry about getting sand on your computer or it getting wet.

    1. FameFire says:

      Yes, you are right. It would be a nice thing. πŸ˜†

      1. Marc says:

        Nah, it’s too hot at the beach. I like a nice air conditioned building πŸ™‚

  10. Does anyone else gets cool ideas in their dreams here too?
    I have seriously come up with some really cool stuff that I was sure would change the world but then not remember the details when I wake up.

    How about some one develops a dream logger?

    1. I do!! It’s a very bad feeling…

  11. blogdinero says:

    Remembers me my last night trying to write an spanish article about “How many clics is enough in Adsense”

  12. ricdes says:

    cmon John.. you work at home and fall asleep :shock::mrgreen:

    how much hardware do you get through the week for reviewing at ttz? :shock::razz:

  13. Josh Buckley says:

    Hehe, nice laptop!

  14. Stephen says:

    Drool and laptops do not mix 😯

  15. Z-LiM says:

    great photo.
    I really should get w-lan,so that I can surf while lying in my bed or while I`m in the toiletteΒ΄ :mrgreen:


  16. hi, john, how much do they pay you for the sessions?

    or you just do it for the exposure?

    1. John Chow says:

      I’m not getting paid for this. It’s all free press.

      1. still worth doing, well done, john.

  17. nice casing John !! Maybe you should giveout the techzone casing in the next contest πŸ™‚

  18. John seems like things are really slowing up or maybe you are keeping busy with techzone or some other stuff. No ReviewMe reviews …if it goes like this then this months earnings are definitely going to be less than April’s..where did the πŸ‘Ώ go?

  19. BrittMalka says:

    I certainly it will be possible to find BC Business here in France. I MUST see those pictures :mrgreen:

  20. Heh, first thing I thought was ‘Who shot John Chow!’

  21. Soultrance says:

    I sure hope they don’t need to retake my pictures. I don’t want another 4+ hours of weirdness πŸ˜›

  22. Eric says:

    The only downside to blogging in bed… can’t use those handy two monitors!


  23. Grace says:

    Haa…. I’m sure you look better than that!

  24. Alex says:

    Nice John Chow. Love your laptop! How much did it cost?

    1. Could be the price for a new contest!

  25. So that’s where the magic happens πŸ˜›

    1. Always in bed πŸ‘Ώ

    2. Marc says:

      Nah, I think the magic happens more like in the previous shots. In a robe with no pants. The ultimate dream of many bloggers. To go all day with no pants.

      1. Britt Malka says:

        I go all day with no pants 😈

        😎 Britt Malka – SheWitch

  26. Great pic!! πŸ˜€

    The tounge hanging out does give it more of a “Who shot JC?” look though!

  27. Thats a funny shot … I have had several nights where I looked just like that!


    1. Marc says:

      I do that but it’s usually on the couch. When I head to bed it’s to crash.

  28. Moulinneuf says:

    You have a Dell XPS now ? I thought you had an MSI for Blogging/on the road kit ?

    BTW do we get to see the first batch of shots ?


    1. John Chow says:

      Oh come on now! You’re not thinking big enough. You think I only have one laptop? 😈

      1. Moulinneuf says:

        😳 I am trying to keep up πŸ˜‰

        You have some exotic , collectible , antic in your collection ? is it a private collection or your willing to discuss your laptop museum , vintage collection ?


      2. john could has 10 if he wants to.

        but me, only one

  29. Eliza says:

    haha, love that pic. Let us know when the actual picture goes live. Oh and my son actually took a picture of me when I fell asleep at my computer one night.

  30. HAHA, I think we’ve all done that once or twice ❗

  31. Bob says:

    Hey John, Technical question again. How do you fuse that techzone thingy onto your labtop?

    1. John Chow says:

      It’s a feature of the XPS. It allows you to place your own picture into the laptop casing.

      1. well, when i get to change my laptop, i’ll get dell xps instead.

        i hope it’s a cool piece of mean machine!

  32. LOL again, awesome picture you got there, John. Someone should publish a coffee table book with all your quirky pictures in it — highly entertaining stuff. πŸ˜†

  33. green says:

    I used to see chess pieces in my dreams lol

  34. Chicago 2016 says:

    Fancy-looking computer you have there.
