Joe Simpson is now a photographer based in Malibu. His career has been epic and a tad rebellious ergo Bohemian from his early days as a Baptist Youth Minister, to managing his superstar daughters Jessica and Ashlee Simpson plus his genius plan to give both daughters reality TV shows that catapulted their careers from music into most notably the eldest daughter’s billion dollar fashion line: The Jessica Simpson Collection. He has always been streets head of other music managers as seen by his initiative to produce reality TV shows for his musical daughters and his recent foray into fine art photography. This man may be behind the scenes but his vision is often waaaaay ahead of time.
Simpson is a creative pioneer in his own right whether exploiting emerging new markets such as reality television to producing music or editorial fashion photography Simpson serves the edgy trends ahead of time. I find him inspiring and respect him a lot, truth be told there’s not a whole lot of media/interviews on him. I wish I could learn more about him, about what drives him and influences his creative and executive decisions in his own and offspring’s careers. I think he’s a phenomenal talent with a discerning eye in the music industry and visual arts.
Sadly we don’t get to hear more about his vision as things tend to stray toward the superstar sisters he has raised and managed.
Joe Simpson is Bohemian worthy for his life-long career in the arts and music scene plus he has a forward-thinking ideas in arts and pop culture.
