What do 164 magazine editors, art directors, public relations companies, sportswear companies, supplement companies, fitness websites and even CBS Television have in common? They are all signed up and have used my archive to search for photographs that fit their needs and usage.

Going into 2017 that archive will be greatly expanded with much more from edgy fashion to lifestyle to bodybuilding, fitness, yoga and Palm Springs scenes and more. Just this week I have been asked for photos ranging from a Presidential motorcade to a beautiful woman in a swimming pool. And yes I had what they wanted available! So if you are going to be looking for photographs for your needs, send me a note and you will have access too. Thank You! Send me an e-mail to Ian@SecondFocus.com

His Last Movie

At PhotoCon LA yesterday I picked up this copy of American Cinematographer magazine. On the cover two greats of motion pictures including Vilmos Zsigmond.

I had the lifetime experience of having been the stills photographer on the last movie that Vilmos had done, “Six Dance Lessons In Six Weeks“. The man had brought us amazing works such as “Deer Hunter” “Close Encounters Of The Third Kind” “Deliverance” “McCabe & Mrs Miller” and so many more. Long recognized¬†as one of the greatest cinematographers of all time.

Working on set with him, almost daily for seven weeks, he showed himself to be a master of his craft with an incredible ease. And Vilmos worked non-stop, starting the day well before anyone else and long after in the every night. Well into his 80’s he drove everyone much younger by many decades into doing better by just trying to keep up with him.

On the last day of our shooting in Budapest at the wrap party of the movie, Vilmos paid me what everyone tells me is the kindest comment ever. He said “You can work on my sets anytime, you never got in the way”. That still makes me laugh and smile.

Dance Lessons In Tampa

It is fun to see my production photographs from the movie “Six Dance Lessons In Six Weeks” in the entertainment section of so many newspapers. This photograph with stars Gena Rowlands and Cheyenne Jackson really depicts the theme of the movie and is one of my favorites. Actually I shot approximately 26,000 photographs during the production of the motion picture and I have too way many favorites. It was a lot of fun!
