From my photo shoot with bodybuilder Sergi Constance, here in the desert near Palm Springs California.
A photo shoot that would work in today’s social distancing. Just myself and Sergi in the desert with no one around at all. Also simply done with a Canon 1V camera body, Canon 50mm f/1.4 lens and Kodak Tri-X film. Thanks!
Of all the bodybuilders I have photographed, amateur and the biggest name pros, it is Dan Decker who has probably appeared in more magazine features than any other.
From one of my photo shoots with IFBB Pro Bodybuilder Dan Decker. Dan has always been one of the most consistent and admired bodybuilders around and been published in more magazines than I am sure he can even tell you. At Palm Springs Fitness Center.
One of my all time favorite photographs I have ever shot ever. The incredible wonderful Tina Chandler during her Olympia bodybuilding competition.
Another multi-exposure stop action bodybuilding posing with the consummate professional of the world of bodybuilding and fitness, Doug Brignole.
A bodybuilding pose begins between the ears. You can see it on his face. That is if you are going to do it right. Doug Brignole is one guy in bodybuilding and fitness who is widely known for doing it right. If there were a belt grade in bodybuilding as there is in martial arts, Doug would hold a black belt at the very highest level of the sport.
Photo shoot notes… Photographed with a Hasselblad digital camera system. Lighting with a Broncolor Para 133 reflector and a Broncolor Move 1200L pack for multiple exposures. Only the best!
If you read the bodybuilding and fitness magazines, visit the most popular websites, you have seen my photographs. All around the world, magazine features, advertising, brochures, billboards, bus wraps, 4 story high banners on the sides of buildings.
You work hard in the gym to get ahead and be your best like my buddy Travis Ely. You are spending your money for your ads to build your business. You are spending money to build features for your magazines or websites.
Talk to me about doing your photography. Send me an e-mail to Ian@SecondFocus.com. Also if you are going to be there, I will be at the Anaheim FitExpo on Saturday August 27th. Send me a note and we can meet and chat. Thanks!
The best part of being a photographer is getting to shoot photographs, especially with really great looking people. Like my good friend Daniel Hill here out in the desert right near Palm Springs. Thanks!
If you are going to work that hard and do the show at Muscle Beach on Memorial Day, you have to get in front of my cameras! Just ask Melissa Loya! Time to sign up, and for more details click here… https://squareup.com/store/secondfocus
You can have your photos on stage and backstage in the famous workout “pit”. You can also have your own mini photo shoot for yourself or a couple on the Saturday or Sunday of that weekend. That can be on the beach and around the world famous Venice Boardwalk.
Not doing the show? You can still have your own mini photo shoot. Either way, take advantage of me! My shoot rates are often at least 10 times what I do for this show. I do these photo shoots like this only for Muscle Beach.
But you must sign up ASAP! I will not have time to photograph everyone as much as I really would like to. So get signed up and let’s get you some outstanding photographs! Click here… https://squareup.com/store/secondfocus
If you are going to be at Muscle Beach for the big Memorial Day weekend show, this is how you find me. Look for my 6ft tall gorgeous assistant Natalie Lyle. Most often on my photo shoots as Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist, she is very exceptional in front of the camera too. Natalie will be helping me keep track of the people who sign up for photo shoots. For signing up details, click here… http://squ.re/1Sl56iQ
I will be shooting everyone who signs up with me and I am the Muscle Beach photographer. Bikini class, Vintage Swimsuit, Bodybuilding, Physique, all of it, I am your photographer. It will be a really busy show and to be fair I will only be photographing the people who sign up for photographs. I just will not have enough time otherwise. At the show, you can have your photographs on stage and also you can select to add on backstage in the world famous Muscle Beach “Pit”.
You can also have your own mini photo shoot for just yourself or a couple. On the Saturday and Sunday before the show, I will be photographing right there at Venice Beach and nearby on the beach in Marina Del Rey. And you do not have to be doing the Muscle Beach show to sign up for a mini photo shoot.
If you have at all been wanting to shoot with me or wanting to have some great professional photographs, this is the chance at a really reduced cost. I make these prices available only for times like this when I can photograph a lot of people. I have really done this so it can be as inexpensive as possible for everyone. For the details, here is the link and Thank You! I really hope as many of you as possible get in front of my cameras! Click here and please sign up right away, only a few weeks left… http://squ.re/1Sl56iQ
A note of honest clarification for some of you who reach out to me. I am happy to work with you, but so you know… If you are 5-10 and weigh 160 pounds and have enough room in the sleeves of your medium size t-shirt to stuff a loaf of bread in next to your biceps, you are not a bodybuilder. You might be a fitness model for juvenile size underwear, which is fine. But you are not a bodybuilder. If I can help get you in the right direction that is great. However just because a few people around your gym swoon over you while you are on some pastel color Pilates ball with your little chrome weights will not convince me. My buddy Jake Sawyer here is a bodybuilder. Any questions, let me know. Thanks!
This is where I try to get you to take advantage of me! On Memorial Day weekend I will be at Venice Beach for the huge bodybuilding and fitness competition at world famous Muscle Beach. Very simply, because I will be photographing so many people over that weekend and at the show, I go out of my way to make it as inexpensive as possible to shoot with me. You can have your own mini photo shoot at a cost I never can make possible otherwise. Check it out and please sign up as soon as possible so I can get you in. Any question please send me an e-mail to Ian@SecondFocus.com. And here is the link to SIGN UP! Thanks!
