#cameraporn - excited over my new Nikon lens adapter for my @reddigitalcinema camera and to be able to use all my Nikon lenses spanning from 14 to 400 mm 🙌🙏😄
Just #stacked up my studio fridge with no carbs energy drinks from my Swedish friends over at @nocco.usa - if you happen to be in the Marina Del Rey area, swing by for a taste 😄🍾 @sanderssonlosangeles - get your b..t over here so we can get started with our projects 😄💪
I learned the sad news today that @daviddearth passed away on Monday night after a heart attack while being hospitalized. I had the pleasure of working and getting to know David during his time with WBF (World Bodybuilding Federation) and later with the IFBB. He was a great bodybuilder with a very aesthetic physique and also a personality that lived life to its fullest. Just like earth, air, fire and water are the four elements necessary for life, David was an energetic element and force in himself. I spoke to him on the phone for length a few years ago about life, destiny, God and how to give back and I sensed that he was in a good mental and spiritual place despite some health issues he was battling at the time. I always loved David for his straight forward talks and integrity and for standing up for what was morally right. From his social media posts I understand his latest surgery was a challenge that would pass and that he would overcome by sheer willpower like so many times before. But it was not meant to be and today we mourn but also celebrate the man that was David Dearth and that touched so many life’s around him. David Rest In Peace my friend. I know you are in a good place with the Lord and know that you are being loved and missed by many. Thank you for crossing path with me those years ago and for enriching my life. I am forever grateful and I hope to see you one day on the other side. 🙏❤️😌
TB #2 is from the 1996 August issue of @musculardevelopment magazine featuring the Italian US born fitness goddess @deidre.pagnanelli - I remember her being one of the absolutely most popular fitness girl at the time. My wife and I did multiple shoots with Deidre and always had a blast. This particular image was captured in 1996 just a mile away from my studio. Deidre was and I’m sure still is such beautiful person inside out. 🙌👏❤️😄 📸 by @perbernalphoto for @musculardevelopment
August 4, 2018 - TB to my photo shoot one year ago today together with JC Ballivian and @dennisbaribault in Malibu - So much has happened and passed since and I have so much to be thankful for 🙏😌 I believe it’s healthy to look back for perspective and balance. What was your strongest memory looking back a year and where are you today? 📸 Pic by @perbernalphoto
#consistency - Congratulations to win number #29, at #tampapro , @mrolympia08 , and hopefully #30 in September, Dexter!! Taking my hat off for you and for your awesome career and consistency for almost 30 years!! Whatever you have, start tapping it into bottles and sell, as you my friend seem to have beaten Father Time 🙌👏🥇😄 Keep up the fantastic work and I’m looking forward to shoot you again sometime very soon 🙏😌 📸 by @perbernalphoto for @musculardevelopment magazine
Saturday inspiration - #classicbodybuilding with Richard Jones at #npcusa . 📸 by @perbernalphoto
#theapprentice - Have an open mind and learn from the master. Previous generations has faced same challenges as you and have found solutions that works as well today as yesterday. There’s no reason to reinvent the wheel each time you face an obstacle. Be coachable, hungry and ambitious and you will succeed beyond your wildest dreams. @sadikhadzovic takes cues from the master himself @officialfrankzane 🙏😌 📸 by @perbernalphoto for @muscleandfitness #classicbodybuilding
#bodybuildingmotivation & #perfection - How do we go back to this and how do you stop or reverse today’s “progress”? @shawnrayifbbpro showcasing the art of the physique. I took a suite of images that this photograph belongs to of Shawn in August of 1999 and to me this represent what bodybuilding is all about. Balance, beauty, size and muscle detail carefully put together and built in an tasteful, thoughtful and intelligent way within the genetic boundaries Shawn was given and why he’s also one of the very best bodybuilders in history. Shawn could have easily put on an additional 20-30 lbs of beast muscles but as the saying goes “less is more” and “quality over quantity” was and is very much true for Shawn and should be the mantra for every serious lifter 🙌😌 📸 by @perbernalphoto for #joeweider and @muscleandfitness magazine
#focus - on set with @danygarciaco and choreographer of the stars, @susiegarcia @showstoppermiami , capturing the creation and rehearsals of Dany’s inspiring posing routine for her upcoming show. I have not seen a routine like this since the days of @cory_everson_6xms.olympia !! Make sure to check out the awesome videos from Danys prep at @danygarciaco IGTV Chanel 🙌👏😄 📸 by @perbernalphoto
#brotherfromanothermother - I’m grateful and very happy to have gotten to know the champion and man @philheath these past couple of months during a photo project and collaboration I hope we will be able to tell you more about and show you sometime soon. What I have learned about Phil is that he is an equally outstanding man as he is a 7-time Mr Olympia Champ and I can’t wait for the world to experience this as well! Pic is from Phil’s UK tour and visit to a local gym that were extremely cool and hardcore 👏😄
#thedoctorisin - Have a new cool feature with Jordan Shallow aka @the_muscle_doc in the August issue of @muscleandfitness magazine. I wanted to bring out the Celtic Warrior in Jordan and got some real strong “hero” portraits of him. Real happy M&F decided to go with this one as the opener 😄 📸 by @perbernalphoto at @coastfitnesssouthbay

#flexibility and bodybuilding - Have had the pleasure to meet and shoot with bodybuilder & coach @mark_ferrara_trainer over the past two years and it has been interesting and impressive to see how much Mark has been improving his physique and flow by incorporating flexibility and movability in his training.

Trying to like and comment posts on IG but getting this message for some reason. I have no idea why I have been blocked and wondering if someone else have or has had similar experiences.
Happy Birthday Dear @mandysacs !!!👏😄❤️ Hope you had an extra spectacular special BD today!! Wanted to tell you how great it has been getting to know you in 2019 and that I’m looking forward to see you continue grow and thrive like never before. Keep up the awesome work and can’t wait to have you in front of my Camera soon again!! 😄🙌 📸 by @perbernalphoto for @limitless and @muscleandfitnesshers
Last piece of 🧳 making it onboard 😅Thanks and bye bye to old and new friend in the U.K. 🇬🇧 It’s been real great and I’m looking forward to visit soon again. Have ideas for some kind of photo shoot tour at the awesome bodybuilding gyms I just visited together with @philheath @giles_tiger @aj.kellyrobert and @globalmuscleradio - very inspiring to see that our Nobel sport is alive and kicking in the U.K. and the passion for it reminds me of the Golden Era of the late 80’s and early 90’s at Golds Gym Venice 👏💪😄 Keep up the great work mates, it’s been awesome!!!
#Fullhouse - The #champ and 7-time Mr Olympia @philheath sharing his love for bodybuilding with the fans and members at @powerzone_gym in Wrexham. It’s been incredible visiting and experience the passion of bodybuilding here in UK during the Phil Heath Muscle Tour together with Phil, @giles_tiger and @ aj.kellyrobert from @philheathlabs and @globalmuscleradio 📸 by @perbernalphoto
I’m off to Birmingham to follow @philheath on the last leg of his U.K. tour with @giles_tiger and his @globalmuscleradio team. Flight was pushed 24 hours due to weather related reasons and no availability on connecting flights in Amsterdam. But this turned out to be a blessing as it gave me enough time to edit and retouch a new shoot with @mandysacs and @limitless for @muscleandfitness magazine. God always have a plan and it’s just best to go with the flow and put the trust in our lord 🙏😄 TB to an awesome shoot I had with Phil at Golds Gun Venice earlier this summer for an upcoming project. Can’t wait to do more shoots with Phil and his fans these coming days 🙌😄 📸 by @perbernalphoto #leicam10
#surrendertowin - Some self help for when you keep hitting that same wall over and over again and for those times you feel frustrated and powerless. . “The three C’s or how to regain your sanity” . Ask yourself the following; . Did you create the situation? Do you control the situation? Can you change the situation? . If the answer is no, it is time to move on and to Surrender to win!!! . Stop waisting your valuable time and focus on the only person you can truly change - YOU!!!! . 📸 by @perbernalphoto Wisedom by Judith Rosenstein 🙌🙏❤️
#cleanlinessisnexttogodliness - my inner nerd is very excited over how sharp my #pelicanair 1535 turned out with the help of a DIY kit from @trekpak and a Clear Pocket Panel from Camera Essentials. Think I found a very appropriate, clean looking and safe solution for my new @reddigitalcinema camera kit 🎥🙏😄 Let the filming begin!! Next stop U.K.!!
#happy4th my friends 🙌🇺🇸❤️ Hope you have a blessed day with family, friends and loved ones!!!
Still have to pinch myself as I’m familiarizing myself with my new @reddigitalcinema Dragon-X camera 🙌😄 @ryanpostas was kind enough to swing by the studio today and tutor me on the menu system and vocabulary. I never had to deal with shutter angles, temperature calibrations, LUTs, compressions etc before but have promised myself to have a grip on it before summers end 🙏😄 Make sure to check out @ryanpostas page and check out his stellar work 👏
