It's the equivalent of joining the military, and being hesitant at the thought of killing someone. If you're that apprehensive, you would never choose it as a career. Simple as that.
Joining the military is nowhere near the same thing as becoming a photographer. Not even close. Maybe a war photographer, but ask a photographer for an urban newspaper (like The Daily Planet) if theyre willing to put there life at risk, especially at a young age like Jimmys, to get a shot Im sure most will reply no or most would reply yes and when a moment arrives they wont be able to.

As I said Jimmy should not be a coward, he should try and get the best shot, but he looks before he leaps but eventually he does leap

and on another note: And even in the military people who sign up think theyre able to kill and then theyre not able to

Let me tell you why: It would be a waste for a guy who becoming such a big star, only to have a bit part in a movie like Superman. WASTE of talent.
And this
