At the Iron Man Naturally Championships yesterday at the FitExpo Anaheim. An extraordinarily striking Jessica Lopez at her first show. Winning 1st Place in both Bikini Open Novice Class B and Bikini Class B. Actually I had no doubt about it during judging which is why I made sure I shot some photographs of her. Outstanding!
My friends Mike O’Hearn and Jean Carrillo Carrillo Muay Thai meeting on Saturday, after two decades, at the Los Angeles FitExpo. Jean had trained Mike in Muay Thai at Gold’s Gym Venice. Mike as an actor and fitness personality has been seen on the cover of hundreds of magazines and is a huge fan favorite. Jean is a world famous Muay Thai and self defense trainer, training people in his gym in Santa Ana as well as special police units in France and around the world. Great fun!
I really like this girl! I am thinking photo shoot! Yesterday downtown Los Angeles near the L.A. Mart for Photo LA. Today you will find me at the FitExpo at the Los Angeles Convention Center.
The FitExpo is coming up in Los Angeles on the 23rd & 24th… I will be there and also at Photo L.A. that week. So if you would like to meet and discuss photo shoot for your magazine, advertising, or for yourself, please let me know ASAP. Send me an e-mail to SecondFocus@mac.com. Thanks!
This photo is from an event I was at some time back, “Shoot L.A” sponsored by Hasselblad and Bron Imaging Group at Smashbox Studios. It was very cool! Somewhat part of the reason I now shot with Hasselblad medium format digital and Bron lighting.
Are you doing the Iron Man Naturally competition at the Anaheim FitExpo on August 22nd? I will be at the show and expo on Saturday, but on Sunday August 23rd, I will be doing a limited number of mini photo shoots at a nearby gym. So whether you are a bodybuilder, physique, bikini or figure competitor, or perhaps not even doing the show, this will be an opportunity to shoot with me at a greatly reduced cost. To chat about it, send me an e-mail to SecondFocus@mac.com. This will be very limited so best get to me as soon as possible. Thanks!
It says Champion over his head because now he is one! Yesterday at the huge Los Angeles FitExpo, Travis Ely won the overall bodybuilding championship title! He worked hard, looked great, and did the homework! Good thing I brought a camera with me. Big shout out to Jake Sawyer who gave Ely that last week tune up! Outstanding!
I know I will be seeing my hiking partner Sherry Goggin at the FitExpo today. I don’t know if she will be wearing this hiking outfit she wore the last time we did a photo shoot out in the desert, but she is always looking amazing in wardrobe from her own line of clothes from Fit Girl Wear! If you are hiking at the FitExpo at the Los Angeles Convention Center today, send me an e-mail to SecondFocus@mac.com and we meet up on the trail! Thanks!
My favorite part of the FitExpo last weekend… Getting to see people I don’t get to see often enough. Like the beautiful Tiphany Adams who many of you know from the enormously successful series “Push Girls”. Tiphany was there being fit and fun at the booth for Quest Nutrition. No one better!
I am sure happy I shot this photograph of Travis Ely. It looks really great on the website for the Iron Man Magazine Naturally Championships. Very Fun!
Xavisus Gayden Ifbb Pro at the FitExpo this last weekend. It is fun to see him at the booth for his sponsor, handing out trophies at the competition and having so many fans say Hi. Fun because as we chatted and remembered how a few years ago I selected him, wrote the story and did the photo shoot for his feature in Iron Man Magazine as the Bodybuilding.com BodySpace Physique of the Month. And neither one of us at that time had any idea where his journey in this world of bodybuilding and fitness would lead him today. Very Cool!
What is this guy yelling about! Well he won his class at the Iron Man Magazine Naturally Championships yesterday at the Los Angeles FitExpo! That’s why!
Travis Ely looking great alongside a total of 164 competitors at the Los Angeles Convention Center amidst 460 booths and displays, other sports events and record breaking crowds.
And a win for Travis is also a win for Jake Sawyer who coached him through his training, nutrition and posing even right up when he was on stage. Outstanding!
By the way, do I take great show photos or what lol !
