I've been fortunate to be recognized as one of the top 30 most influential photographers and having more than 22 million views on 500px, it's been quite a humbling experience, seeing as my beginnings were very humble too.

Humbling experience? Wow! Based on many of his recent outbursts, it doesn't seem as if the experience has been humbling at all. Rather, it seems that his "success" has puffed him up with pride and arrogance - the exact opposite of humility.

"Your" and "you're" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"They're", "their", and "there" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one.
"Fare" and "fair" are different words with completely different meanings - please use the correct one. The proper expression is "moot point", NOT "mute point".

That guy is a tool. And I've never heard of him before until now and his work isn't even that great, there's plenty of photographers in this forum alone that trumps his body of work, and I'm being sincere.


I have to give him credit though in terms of marketing.

Unfortunately people here in his home counties still flock to him. I find his work horrid.

I'm curious as to why so many are piling onto this guy. I mean really, who cares? His egregious behavior is like that of countless other buffoons in social networking. Nothing anybody says will change it. Responding only feeds into the cacophony.

Jake is a great photographer and a wonderful friend. Most people do not 'get' his sense of humor. He's a personality that you either love or hate. I know him quite well and consider him a friend. It's easy and takes 0 courage to pile on someone when you're sitting safely and anonymously behind your keyboard. My 2 cents.

He told someone to consider suicide ... anonymously, from behind his keyboard.

I bet he'd get a good voter turn out in a presidential primary :shock:

MODS! MODS! POLITICAL COMMENT! OH, MODS...

It seems that no opinion was expressed one way or the other, it was apparently only an observation on voter behavior in general, and not reflective of party affiliation; it is the same regardless of party. You know voter behavior is the same, regardless of affiliation, as you end up with two final election candidates and you wish 'None of the above' was a choice on the ballot. Which would you like, a Sigma dSLR or a Tokina dSLR?

Just came upon this thread...

The way Mr. Olson treated those people online is inexcusable, but in my opinion is symptomatic of many online interactions. People regularly conflate their online persona with reality. They gauge their personal self-worth by the number of "likes" they get online. If somebody disagrees or criticizes what they say online, they view it as an existential threat and feel they must respond accordingly.

I recently watched a video of a talk given by Simon Sinek about millennials in the workplace. In it, he said that when you get a "like" online, you feel good because your brain produces a shot of dopamine. That's the same reaction people get from gambling, alcohol, and tobacco, and it can be just as addictive.

Maybe Mr. Olson has struggled with alcoholism in the past, and perhaps he did "fall off the wagon" briefly. We're only human, and we all experience setbacks in our endeavors. Any alcoholic--Mr. Olson included--deserves our support and encouragement for trying to better himself in the face of what is increasingly recognized as being hard-coded by some peoples' biology, and not simply a weakness of willpower.

But I've also always heard that alcohol is no excuse for bad behavior because it doesn't make you say or do anything you wouldn't say or do otherwise. All it does is reduce your inhibitions. You would still think about saying or doing those things if you were stone sober, and telling a stranger to consider suicide is indicative of deeper issues than alcoholism.

Lisa, in Jake's comments that I am posting below, he does refer to you quiet positively. . But the way he is bullying others ...... how can anyone, friend or not, defend that?

It isn't just about his "sense of humor" or his "personality" and whether one likes it or not. . In fact, there is nothing humorous at all in his comments, no matter how broad a definition of "humor" one uses.

When someone publicly bullies others in such a hurtful, public, and obscene manner, it gives a glimpse into what can only be depravity within their soul. . I don't understand why anyone would want to be identified with someone who is so mean and cruel to others. . In fact, I would be ashamed to have my name mentioned in the midst of these horrifically cruel attacks.

I've seen this, many many times, and this sounds exactly like something Jake would say. Those who do not know him would not understand his sense of humor. I'm not even remotely offended - I find it amusing. Thanks for trying though!
