Scenery Around The Salton Sea

The Salton Sea is 15 miles wide and 35 miles long. With so much shoreline and interesting places, there is always something wonderful to photograph. By example I happened to find this random model on a pole at an abandoned gas station and store.

Well maybe not so random. Nora from NYC came out and shot with me for the day all around the Salton Sea. Makeup and Hair Styling and Styling by the Estee Lauder featured artist Blanche LeBeau.

Photographed on a Hasselblad digital camera system.

Does Sex Still Sell Fashion?

A very interesting story from Vogue UK…

“Helmut Newton’s Images Sold Sex And Unobtainable Glamour. Six Decades Later, Are We Still Turned On?”

“As BABY SUMO, a masterpiece reworking of Helmut Newton’s seminal tome, hits shelves on what would have been the photographer’s 100th birthday, Vogue asks if sex really does still sell women’s fashion?”

“It’s an interesting moment to rerelease SUMO (1999), the 464-page Helmut Newton monograph that weighed 35kg and came with a specially designed Philippe Starck stand. To meet the current moment, it has been redesigned: now called BABY SUMO, it’s half the size and relatively speaking, it’s reasonably priced at £1,000. (The signed first-edition of SUMO became the most expensive book of the 20th century when it sold at auction in Berlin for 620,000DM in 2000, approximately £506k today.)”

Vamps and Flappers

Certainly got my attention. I like this idea of wardrobe for a photo shoot. From the Facebook group Vamps and Flappers of the 1920’s, 1920’s, and early 1930’s.

“Actress Lorraine Marshall in the 1933 film “Footlight Parade”. Marshall was a bit actress and dancer in many pre-code film and early talkies, including “It’s Great To Be Alive” (1933) and “I’ve Got Your Number” (1934).


Laying Around

Not unusual for me at all. And it can be very restful. Women’s shoe fashion photo shoot. Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting.


Maria

A Facebook cover photo. Love this woman, Maria Bertrand. From our photo shoot at Venice Beach.


Those Red Shoes

She told me they were actually easy to wear and walk in. I sure do have the best luck with tall models named Maria!

APA Sourcebook 2020

I am very excited to be included in the APA Sourcebook 2020. Actual publication this Spring. A good way to start the New Year!

My Buddy Randalene

I do not know how many times I photographed Randalene Sergent. I first photographed her for a feature in Iron Man Magazine for Bodybuilding.com. I remember being speechless, she was so breathtakingly beautiful as I looked through the camera.  We became steadfast friends and I went on to photograph her for more magazine features, advertising, company promotions and fashion editorials. Makeup and hair styling in this photo shoot by another of my steadfast best buddies, Natalie Lyle.

Are you one of the ad agencies, editorial publications, design firms, and select companies around the US that received the 2019 APA Sourcebook? Yes I am in it. Thanks!

Karl

The man was an unrelenting professional and perfectionist. He seemed to go to any lengths to do things at their very best without any consideration to cost or time or effort. Perhaps an odd persona but then again we are all individuals in some way, or at least should be.

“Ideas come to you when you work,” he said backstage before a Fendi show at age 83. As a result, Mr. Lagerfeld never stopped creating. He was also a photographer, whose work was exhibited at the Pinacothèque de Paris…”

“Karl Lagerfeld, the most prolific designer of the 20th and 21st centuries and a man whose career formed the prototype of the modern luxury fashion industry, died on Tuesday in Paris.”

“Though his birth year was a matter of some dispute, Mr. Lagerfeld, who lived in Paris, was generally thought to be 85. His death was announced by Chanel, with which he had long been associated.”

“If it is so difficult, just do it yourself”

What I Do…

I get asked about what I do to relax when I am not shooting photos and video of gorgeous women for ads and magazine features. Or when I am not shooting bodybuilders and gym workouts. Or when I am not doing photos and videos of aircraft or flying in them. Well I hang out with friends, take some road trips, shop for a new car.

For many years you have seen my photography featured in much of the fitness industry from magazines to online resources. My photography features, competition coverage and advertising have been a mainstay in such well known places as Iron Man Magazine, Planet Muscle Magazine and Bodybuilding.com.

My advertising work has been seen everywhere from the magazines to major newspapers, wrapping city buses and billboards. All around the world in many languages. Creative paths and opportunities have also sent me in many directions including motion picture still photography. That afforded me one of the highlights of my life, working with Hollywood luminaries Gena Rowlands and Rita Moreno on the motion picture ?Six Dance Lessons In Six Weeks?. The Director of Photography was the very respected and esteemed Vilmos Zsigmond, said to be the greatest Cinematographer who has ever lived. Not yet done with directions…

I am the photographer for the Palm Springs Air Museum. CNN lists it as one of the best Air Museums in the world. It is also a rarity because it is a flying museum. As a little boy I used to build military aircraft models and hang them from the ceiling in my room. Now my photography hast taken me full circle again. I also manage the Air Museum social media so I have great latitude in creating content, photos and video.

Even more diverse is my work in fashion and lifestyle photography. Published from Rome to Los Angeles. Thanks!

Easter Bonnet

This would be more of my idea of an Easter Bonnet. It’s all about the Bonnet of course. Model Severine makes for my idea of wearing the perfect Easter wardrobe too. Ok maybe my ideas about most wardrobe might be different than most. I like it!

Makeup and Styling with the incredible Blanche LeBeau. Lighting by Broncolor and a Hasselblad digital camera system. Maybe next year we need Bunny Rabbits too.
