Over 11,000

We had over 11,000 live listeners on my most recent appearance on Blog Talk Radio with “Chatting With Sherri“. Actually that is my third time on Blog Talk Radio with Sherri.

The Actual Magazine

There is something so very special about a large format magazine with high quality paper and inks. Just arrived, copies of Livein Style Magazine with my fashion feature shot with model Gabriella Muttone. The photographs so very rich and deep that look totally different than when seen on a screen. Livein Style Magazine itself published in Italy, NYC and Los Angeles.

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.

Fashion Week Restrooms

I watched the replay of the livestream of the Fashion Week El Paseo 2018 Finale. The Ralph Rucci Collection, I was totally impressed, the best ever for Fashion Week. An incredible collection of clothes, wonderful and fabulous models, tremendous presentation! But then…
 
You have to pay attention to details or it all becomes a second rate production. A giant restrooms sign… are you kidding me!
 
By the way, some of you have heard me say; when a fashion lifestyle magazine finally actually manages to have the courage to show nipples, they are actually moving in to today. The used to be very boring Palm Springs Life Magazine has actually done it now and then, getting there.
 
And we have it in this show, nipples. Good job Ralph Rucci! I am a fan! Watch this fashion show, it is really good! https://livestream.com/palmspringslife/events/8109339/videos/172274774

For A Colder Trick Or Treat

For those colder Halloween nights of Trick Or Treat. A well designed windbreaker with hoodie. Another of my Halloween costume ideas from one of my photo shoots with Kajira. Lighting by Broncolor and a Hasselblad digital camera system. Only the best!

First A Great Model!

The first order of business… select a great model! Makes all the difference in the world. Gabriella Muttone is one of the absolute great models I have had in front of my cameras. An extraordinary photographer herself, she has a keen sense of body movement, facial expression and style. You can see in this photograph from our photo shoot at the Palm Springs Air Museum how she places herself so perfectly with this aircraft, engine and propeller. Just wonderful!

Photo shoot notes… Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lightning. The aircraft is a beautiful Grumman F8F Bearcat. The design for this was done by my good friend and superb graphic design artist Dennis Johnson. Only the best! Thanks!

She Didn’t Hear Me

If you read my prior post just below, you know about my chance meeting with Nora Zainglein at the Salton Sea. Also especially lucky that I had my Hasselblad camera with me. Just one of those things when you meet a New York City fashion model dancing around a pole on a vacant road. It is all true! Trust me!

So we drove down a dirt road I know which takes you to a somewhat hidden way to get on the shore of the Sea. Nora seemed to have a wardrobe idea for this spot and changed by the car. Makeup and hair had been somehow perfectly readied by the premier Estee Lauder artist Blanche LeBeau.

No one there of course and the Salton Sea was beautiful in it’s usual eerie sort of way. Noon and the Sun was high and the temperature hot. Nora embraced the feel and view of it all. Just having been in Manhattan the day before made it quite the scenic change for her. Amused by the long line along the shore of mummified Tilapia, I was sure that thoughts of lunch were not on her mind.

Walking along she raised her face to the Sun and closed her eyes. I said “Nora what are you thinking about?”…  She didn’t hear me.

More to come…

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

Just Love It

I love the people I photograph! I love the creation, the wardrobe or lack of wardrobe, the makeup, the process, the cameras, the lighting equipment, even the light stands, all of it. And I am a true lover of photography, not just my photographs but the world of photographs.

My photo shoot with the beautiful Amber Flowers. The camera is Hasselblad digital. The lighting is Broncolor with the so unique Broncolor Para 133 reflector. I love it all, I truly do!

Looking At Me?

Yes we are looking at you! It would be a tragedy not to! Amber Flowers in our photo shoot. Superbly wardrobe styled and makeup and hair by Amber. Hasselblad digital camera system and lighting by Broncolor. I am sure happy I shot some photos to remember all this!
