Loading dynamic image url from mysql database

I have an external php creating a json array from a mysql database. The problem I’m having is that when I test it both locally via ionic serve or ionic run android, the image itself wont load as it’s appending http://localhost:8100/imageurlhere or in the android it’s trying to pull it from file:///android_asset/www/imageurlhere.

I’m new to Ionic so maybe I’m missing something obvious.
