Bombay Beach Posing With Xtine

Xtine posing in our photo shoot at Bombay Beach at the Salon Sea, One of my all time favorite models at one of my all time favorite places. Xtine, a professional model at over 6 ft tall and a superb photographer herself. Video shot on a Fujifilm X-Series camera. Photo shoot with a Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting.


164

What do 164 magazine editors, art directors, public relations companies, sportswear companies, supplement companies, fitness websites and even CBS Television have in common? They are all signed up and have used my archive to search for photographs that fit their needs and usage.

Going into 2017 that archive will be greatly expanded with much more from edgy fashion to lifestyle to bodybuilding, fitness, yoga and Palm Springs scenes and more. Just this week I have been asked for photos ranging from a Presidential motorcade to a beautiful woman in a swimming pool. And yes I had what they wanted available! So if you are going to be looking for photographs for your needs, send me a note and you will have access too. Thank You! Send me an e-mail to Ian@SecondFocus.com

Like She Was Walking On A Yacht

She walked into the party, like she was walking on a yacht.  And they all dreamed that they’d be her partner, they’d be her partner… Ashley Owens-Gulina.  Sounds familiar, do you know from where? From our photo shoot. Makeup and Hair Styling by Natalie Lyle.

Scenic Imagination

So great fun doing photo shoots in interesting and scenic places. Sometimes they do not seem scenic at first, but then just use your imagination. The imagination of knowing what something will look like in the photograph. One of my favorite photo shoots, this time with bodybuilder Daniel Hill.

Instant BTS

Fun shooting behind the scenes photos with instant film cameras. This one with the Fujifilm Instax. Of course no one really cares because I know you are staring at the magnificent Noel VanBrocklin. Model, actress and the stunning creature in the blue lagoon of my pool. Shoot notes… lighting is a Broncolor Move 1200L and Broncolor beauty dish. The actual shoot with a Hasselblad digital camera system. Often overlooked, the stand and boom are Matthews Studio Equipment. Wonderful and sexy makeup and hair styling by Blanche LeBeau.

Next Time

Next time you tell me some “photographer” gave you 4000 “raw” photos from your shoot on a DVD. Don’t know Mapplethorpe? Most recent was his simultaneous exhibits at the Getty and the Los Angeles County Museum of Art.


My World

The ever so gorgeous Maria Bertrand, often in front of my camera. And my friend! I am so lucky that so very many of the beautiful women and good looking guys I photograph become and remain my friends.

One of my buddies was walking around an event with me a few months ago. He said, looking around at the crowd… “None of these people look like the people you photograph”. Very true! Nothing wrong with it but the thought stayed with me. I do indeed work and live in a different world than many. Just different. I guess I did recognize that some time back when I named the portfolios on my Website as “My World”.

So maybe visit the “My World’s” on my Website at SecondFocus.com. Maria Bertrand is certainly there. Some of you too are there. And there will be more, changing it soon! Thanks!
