Ava Cowan in our fitness magazine photo shoot both in the gym and poolside in Palm Springs. Thanks!
Do I love photographing beautiful women with incredible bodies? Yes! My good buddy Stacey Naito. Thank You!
Makeup and Hair Styling by the incredible Blanche Le Beau.
One of the most incredible women ever in the world of fitness, Ava Cowan. The video and photo shoot we did for Bodybuilding.com promotions and advertising. Her body, her eyes, her movements… Ava is a magnificent work of art.
How to beat the heat during the Summer here in Palm Springs… Get in the pool and become the heat! Andrea Schulze in our photo shoot.
So happy they came color coded so I could tell them apart when I just wasn’t sure with a quick glance! Andrea and Kerstin Schulze, identical twins from the start and in many ways all through life. Both wonderful people with superb attitudes based on friendship, caring and love and a hugely positive outlook on life.
Both beautiful women 6 ft tall, who have built a life of fitness and competition. Different in that Kerstin has sought her career in fitness competition and acting, which has now seen her in many roles and big time real commercials. Andrea just now winning her first fitness competition, however the “go to person” if you need a multi million dollar data center built! So if you had any stereotypical ideas of gorgeous tall beautiful fitness women in your head… that ends here!
From our recent photo shoot in Palm Springs… The double duty Makeup and Hair styling by premier Estee Lauder artist Blanche LeBeau. My Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting. Always the best! Thanks!
Behind the scenes in my photo shoot with Kerstin Schulze and Andrea Schulze in Palm Springs. They both live a lifestyle of health and fitness. Kerstin a long time fitness competitor and Andrea just walking away with her first competition trophies. Both 6ft tall and identical twins. Both gorgeous, fun, outgoing and both women to respect and admire in how they carry themselves in life. For now I will not tell you who is who, just for fun, because they are so very identical. I want to keep you guessing and intrigued lol!
The actual photos here on my Blog soon. The wonderful double duty Makeup styling by premier, world traveling, Estee Lauder artist Blanche LeBeau. The camera system up for this task is Hasselblad and the lighting by Broncolor. Nothing but the best! Thanks!
A selfie from my buddy Tani Correia. Tani had made it into the world of fitness being featured in the magazines and pretty well known. But as she has self confessed along the way, she had a difficult time maintaining her condition. Not long ago Tani told me that she was going to make her way back. Actually I am not really sure how much time elapsed, I just know she sure did it! What a rockin’ body!
So for the first day of 2017, Tani is the motivation that many of us need. By the way, Tani told me many times that one of her motivations was to come do a photo shoot with me. I love that!
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!
Not necessarily! Check out the bicep and shoulder in the mirror on Joanna Johnson. Now check out the weights she is using. You do not need to always use huge heavy weights to build an incredible physique. It is all about doing it right! Everyone is different. From our photo shoot, Thanks!
“I’m not going to move until I get your attention” says Maria Bertrand. You got it Maria!
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!
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!
