I have shot almost all of the photo and video content for the social media for the Palm Springs Air Museum for a few years now. But I also really enjoy finding historic video like this to use…
At the “Wings Over Camarillo” airshow with the Palm Springs Air Museum. I am the Museum photographer and also Social Media Manager. Shooting the show opening USAF skydiving with my X-T3 and 100-400 lens, I knew I had beautiful shots but how to get one up on Social Media on the spot.
I had already paired my X-T3 with my iPhone using the Fujifilm Cam Remote app. I selected one of the photos and instantly transferred it to my phone. It was beautiful as shot. Within moments I had it on the Air Museum Instagram where it was an instant hit. Another Fujifilm X-Series feature that has made my life easier.
This is the exact photo, except I did add my logo in Photoshop for display here. However no other editing.
I cannot imagine how someone spends the money to buy an operating business like this and then throws it all in dumper with worse than an amateur marketing start. The e-mail I received and my reply. Although I guess it worked; it says they were hoping to hear from me soon, and they did.

Fun video I get to do. At the Palm Springs Air Museum as the photographer and social media manager.
Routine annual maintenance and a gear swing on the C-47 “What’s Up Doc?”. Yes it works! Thanks!

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!

Hey everyone! I am part of the team with the Palm Springs Air Museum going to the National Championship Air Races in Reno in September. We will be racing two significant and historic aircraft.
First is our P-63 Kingcobra right here in my photo. “Pretty Polly” will be the first Kingcobra to race at Reno in decades! Alongside will be our iconic Red Tail P-51 Mustang “Bunny” dedicated to the famed Tuskegee Airmen of World War II.
We are on our way but still need you to join our Red Tails Kingcobra Race Team. There are great perks and rewards from our team Shirts to actually flying. Our sponsorship levels gives you significant signage too in front of a huge audience in the most prestigious Air Race of the fastest motorsport in the world!
