Hasselblad H1 Introduction

I have always been a fan of Hasselblad because of it’s place in history with the exploration of outer space. This is an ad from July/August 2005 in Picture Magazine, but it appeared in many magazines. I remember very well the introduction of the H1D when Hasselblad held a day long special event at the Loews Hotel in Santa Monica. It was led by none other than the then President of Hasselblad.

I was there, and as I usually would do, spent a couple of days staying at the Loew’s for other business. Holding that camera and looking through that viewfinder was a total revelation. It shamed other cameras with its huge bright view. The camera so very ergonomic and solid. Everyone was just amazed with it and it’s features and future.

Indeed that held with me when finally I bought my own H4D system some years later. Hasselblad always had some great huge events. Other companies have done so along the way too. I hope to see more. I think it is good marketing although sometimes immediate results are not seen.

This Would Be Better

Doing some more photo shoots poolside would make sheltering in place much better.

More Than 6 ft

This is more than 6 ft but still a no-no. Miss doing these photo shoots. Sheltering at home.

Victor With Nova

When I was getting ready to do a photo shoot with Nova, I was excited to find that she had been featured in one of my favorite publications, “Victor” by Hasselblad. A beautiful publication that began as a very large format magazine and progressed to a book format. It is partially responsible for my having selected Hasselblad as my camera system.

So I was excited to have Nova sign her photograph in my copy of Hasselblad Victor Photography Book One during our photo shoot. And I am in great admiration of the original photograph and the series “Personal Visitation” by photographer Damon Loble. Applause!

By the way, it was the first time she had seen the publication and only had heard it was published.

This photograph with my Hasselblad digital camera and Broncolor lighting. Thanks!

“To Ian Thank you for a wonderful shoot!!”

Objectifying Women

Occasionally I get accused of objectifying women in my photographs. Far from it, I am only guilty of showing these women as powerful in their beauty and sexuality; with or without clothes. To quote famed photographer Helmut Newton… “My women are always victorious.”

Kajira

Model Kajira in our photo shoot. Powerful in her own way. Studio shoot in Palm Springs.

 


Naked And Bold

I do find some women very bold when they are naked. It is very powerful. Shauna Toerner in our photo shoot. At FD Photo Studio in Los Angeles. Hasselblad digital camera system and Broncolor lighting.
