Quality Counts

Quality counts more and more. We went through a decade or longer being bombarded with bad photos and video in ads, features and social media. A few of the photographs I shoot for the Palm Springs Air Museum. Camera was my Fujifilm X-H1 with the Fujifilm XF 8-16mm f/2.8 lens. These are also used for print advertising. Thanks!

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.

Shauna Naked And Restless

I think Shauna Toerner does naked and restless very well indeed. Her dilemma helped with Makeup and Hair Styling by Natalie Lyle. An extra series on Fujifilm Instax instant film from our photo shoot at FD Photo Studio in downtown Los Angeles. Thanks!

Shoot With Me

Most of you know me from my extensively published work in Bodybuilding and Fitness. I have photographed and done video with some of the most famous as well the up and comers. To say the least my favorites include the incredible Ava Cowan; featured in magazines, ads and on stage at the Olympia and Arnold.

I would love to work with more of you, it is always great fun too. So whether it is for your own portfolio, your fitness career, your company ads, or magazine features; send me a note here or an e-mail to Ian@SecondFocus.com. And Thanks!

Social Media Content And Management

This graph is one direct from Facebook showing the growth I have created for one client. The red line indicates where I took over the job. Before that it was relatively flat for at least a year or more with very lackluster postings.

As a photographer, I have for a long time now continued to build my own business with social media. Perhaps I have something like 15 years doing it. As well as having been involved in building content and social media for my photo clients. So it was only a matter of course that I have applied my abilities to create content of photos, videos and writing to build and manage social media for clients as a regular part of my business.

I am not some part time guy doing this on the side. Social Media, photography and video is what I do. If you might be interested in chatting about what I might do for you, please send me an e-mail to Ian@SecondFocus.com. Happy to have the opportunity to just chat with you. Thanks!

Surround Yourself

Much of what Kerstin has to say is mirrored by me. “Surround yourself with people of the same powerful energy”. She is one extraordinary individual.

A tremendous photo and video shoot. Thank You Kerstin Schulze. Big Thank You’s to the wonderful Estee Lauder featured Makeup Artist Blanche LeBeau; my so very talented assistant for the day Shauna Toerner, amazing hair styling by Phata Chavis.

Photo shoot notes… Photographs with a Hasselblad digital camera system. Lighting by Broncolor. Videos shot on Fujifilm X-H1 and X-T1 cameras. Shot at FD Photo Studio in downtown Los Angeles. Thanks!
