Basic Safety Rule

A basic safety rule to be followed at all times. Avoid looking at photographs of Sherry Goggin for more than 30 seconds or you may lose the ability to focus and concentrate on anything else for as long as 24 – 72 hours. There is no known cure at this time nor expected to be in the near future. From our photo shoot near the windmill farms and the bikini from her own Fit Girl Wear designs.

Bikini Weather

I saw a swimsuit ad yesterday about getting ready for bikini weather. It is always bikini weather for me and my cameras. Especially with Ashley Owens Gulina! Makeup and Hair Styling by Natalie Lyle.

You Can Be Hot In Palm Springs

The weather is sunny and warm and just like Jessica Jacobsen you could be hot poolside in front of my cameras. Send me an e-mail to SecondFocus@mac.com and we can chat about it. We can also discuss photography for your magazine, online or print features, or your advertising campaign. Thanks! Jessica Jacobsen


How Lucky!

How can I possibly explain how lucky I have been to have some of the most astounding and beautiful women in front of my cameras. Victoria Kirsanovaout in hot Sun in the hills above Agua Dulce. Personal trainer, professional horse trainer and an amazingly creative individual with a fascinating life from around the world. From our photo shot with Makeup and Hair Styling by Natalie Lyle. Thank You!

She Turned Her Back On Me!

Leave it to my best buddy Hannah Gordon Etherson to turn her back on me! Ok I will admit it was worth the view. On stage today at Muscle Beach/Veniceshe took home a Second Place Trophy! Yes!

What Is It Like?

Someone asked me the other day what it is like to photograph the incredibly beautiful women I photograph while I am actually shooting. Well I can sure say it is fun! We all end up being good friends. I am often in awe of what I see through the viewfinder of my camera. Seeing and editing the photographs afterward is beyond description. Randalene Sergent here from one of our photo shoots certainly fits all of that. An amazingly beautiful, intelligent, intriguing and fun individual. She stands on the NPC Bikini stage, works hard and is a driven business person. Always special when Randalene is here for a photo shoot! Just too good! Thanks!

Much More To Maine! “I Love Selfies!”

I Love Selfies! Boston born and now in Maine, Sophia Mansora is one beautiful and educated individual who has found the world of fitness and fitness modeling and can’t get enough of it! Training last year took her to competing in Bikini and walking away with being in the spotlight with trophies and overall wins. I am predicting she is going to be doing good along with her Bachelor’s Degree in Political Science and working towards her Master’s Degree in Business. She says she loves to travel to new places so I think being in front of my cameras should be one of those places! But until then go check her photos out on her Facebook page, it is worth the visit!

I invite you to send me your selfies and I will show you off here on my Blog and all of my Social Media as well as my Facebook pages. You will be seen by so very many! Girls and guys, whatever you want to send. In the gym, showing off the hard work you have put in, at the pool, naked and/or just having fun. Anything a little too edgy will go on my Blog and I will censor it for Facebook. You don’t have to have ever done a photo shoot with me or even met me in person. It will also be a great way for me to see you and talk about photo shoots. Let’s do this, it’s all fun!

You must send me the selfie to my e-mail at SecondFocus@mac.com or as a message on Facebook. I will say that I might have to pick and choose to make it manageable and hold some or change when I decide to post them for one reason or another. Thanks!

A Very Beautiful Winner!

A Very Beautiful Winner!

A huge congratulations to Randalene Sergent winning the Overall Bikini Competition at the NPC Southern California Championships this Saturday in San Diego! When I first photographed Randalene and spent the day with her, a couple of years ago, I knew she was someone very special. She is just beautiful, and has sculpted an amazing physique topped off with a wonderful personality. And looking at Randalene though the viewfinder of a camera is one of life’s great wonders! Going to be seeing much more of Randalene Sergent! Outstanding!

Just Radiant At Muscle Beach!

Just Radiant At Muscle Beach!

At Muscle Beach/Venice on Memorial Day I do not get the chance to photograph everyone on stage. I am just too busy with so many people around the show and backstage. But I did photograph who I could only describe as a very radiant and very beautiful Jennifer Henry. I truly love it when I see people having so much fun on stage at the place “Where Muscles Were Born”!

Red Topping On A Great Body!

Red Topping On A Great Body!

I love it when beautiful women come out to Muscle Beach to stand on stage and stand out and have fun! Megan Garrison sure did that! Everyone was inspired by the rocking hot body she has built and topped with that bright red hair! Here she was busy concentrating on getting ready back stage in the “Pit” Of course Megan went home with a trophy! She does hang out on Facebook but she tells me she is much busier over at Instagram as @megandelbarrio. Very Cool!

Girls & Cars – Good & Bad

Girls & Cars - Good & Bad

So many photographs of girls with cars out there. This is my idea of what that should look like. Rebekah Ryan posing like there is relevance of her being with that Ferrari and in that setting. Just a long time pet peeve for me, most girls with car photos look just like they are standing there next to a car with no point to it. Thanks!

And What Did You Do Over The Weekend?

My Winter Photo Studio

My Winter Photo Studio

I was just thinking about my good buddy Heidi Cannon Wbff Pro back in Columbus Ohio right now at the “Arnold”. Been there a few times myself. But your sure can’t beat the winter here in front of my cameras in my studio! And Heidi sure made it look good!
