Video I shot during a photo shoot for Bodybuilding.com. This was sometime back before 4k or even HD video. One of the all time best professional bodybuilders, Victor Martinez. At Muscle Beach Venice.
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!
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”! Details and sign up at MuscleBeachPhoto.com

From our photo shoot, my friend John Hansen featured in the book “Vince’s Secret Locker” by Karl Coyne. The story of the “Iron Guru” from the Golden Age of Bodybuilding, Vince Gironda. Vince’s Gym was central to the world of bodybuilding and among the people you could find in that gym in North Hollywood were Cher, Denzel Washington, Clint Eastwood, and James Garner. Vince Gironda will be posthumously inducted into the real Muscle Beach Hall Of Fame on Labor Day this year on September 5th.
John Hansen himself a legend in the world of bodybuilding, the very first Mr. Natural Olympia. Recognized as an eminent bodybuilder and historian of the world of bodybuilder.
