Always Muscle Beach

Amy Sullivan on stage at Muscle Beach on Memorial Day. When I am at these Muscle Beach shows, now into two decades, and look through the viewfinder of my cameras, I am always in such awe of the beauty and dedication I see. Isn’t she just gorgeous!

July 4th at Muscle Beach is only just over three weeks away. I will again be available with my cameras to photograph you on stage, back stage or in your own or a couples mini photo shoot. And even if you are not a competitor at the show, you can still have your own mini photo shoot with me. For more details and sign up, please go to MuscleBeachPhoto.com Thanks!

Here We Go! July 4th Muscle Beach!

The big July 4th weekend at Muscle Beach is less than a month away! So time to open the store for signing up for photographing you at the show, on stage and backstage. Bodybuilding, physique, figure, fitness, bikini, all of you. Click here… MuscleBeachPhoto.com

You can also have your own mini shoot, Saturday or Sunday before the show. And you do not need to be a show competitor. Individuals or couples, we will shoot on a beach and even around the boardwalk in Venice or nearby in Marina Del Rey. Your photo shoot with one of the most known photographers in the business, that’s me! 

But you must sign up ahead of time and soon. I can only photograph the people who sign up. I just will not have time to photograph everyone, as much as I would love to! Don’t be one of the many people who following the Memorial Day show sent me a message like… “I wanted to get photos of me (or my guy or girl) but did not sign up, can I still get some?”. So please sign up ASAP! In all honesty, I am doing this (and so inexpensively) for you who work so hard and get the chance to stand on the stage “Where Muscle Were Born”!

Vintage Swimsuit Is Here!

The first retro Vintage Swimsuit competition has now happened! A look back in time to those healthy, carefree, and exciting times at Muscle Beach that the entire world imagines. Vividly in everyone’s mind is the picture of Southern California beaches, the sun, good looking guys and pretty girls. And the pretty girl here is picturesque herself, Hannah Gordon Etherson on stage at Muscle Beach!

Hitchhiking to Muscle Beach

I imposed upon Maria Bertrand to demonstrate the proper form and universal sign for hitchhiking to Muscle Beach. We were on Mulholland Drive above Beverly Hills so the results  for cars that stopped included 17 Ferraris, 14 Lamborghinis, 6 Bentley Coupes, 11 various Rolls Royces, 4 Lincoln Town Cars and one black Loach helicopter with no markings that dropped out of the sky. However last I saw of Maria for the day was as she rode off on the back of a bright red Vespa with a really cute blonde wearing a matching helmet who had really long legs. I went back to the hotel with my Hasselblad camera and my memories of the day, in my photographs. Sigh…

Your Photo Shoot At Venice Beach

Your photo shoot with me Memorial Day weekend. I will be at Venice Beach for the huge show at Muscle Beach on Memorial Day. So on Saturday or Sunday, May 28 and 29, you can have your own mini photo shoot with me. You do not have to be doing the Muscle Beach show. Fashion model or bodybuilder, bikini model or physique competitor and couples, all are welcome. Just like my wonderful beautiful friend Maria Bertrand from our shoot on the sand at Venice Beach.

Spend about an hour with me at Venice Beach, The Venice Beach Boardwalk or a nearby beach in Marina Del Rey. Because I am photographing so many people that weekend and at the Muscle Beach show, I do these photo shoots at hugely reduced rates just to make it available to as many people as possible. But please sign up immediately so we can get you in. And if you are doing the show, sign up for your photographs with me, both on stage and backstage in the famous workout Pit. Thanks and here is the link for sign up… MuscleBeachPhoto.com.

Flyover Muscle Beach

If you were on stage at Muscle Beach or just nearby on Memorial Day, this is one of the memories you are carrying in your mind from 2015. One you will not forget soon! The only bodybuilding and fitness show to open with the United States Air Force flying a C-17 overhead at roof top level.  You saw it, you heard it and you could feel the excitement. Only at the real Muscle Beach shows! That is where you find me with my cameras for over a decade.
