Well, due to a sync error on my iPhone I lost the actual photos of the receipt and burger but had posted this one shot to twitter before so this will be the ‘evidence’ of my 37th In-n-Out burger which was in Las Vegas. Since it was just after prejudging at the 2010 NPC USAs, Gail Auerbach, a female bodybuilder that I know also made it over to this In-n-Out which was just a couple blocks away from the venue where the competition was happening. This trip was also Steve Schibelli’s first trip to an In-n-Out and so it was Steve, myself, James Cook and Annie Rivieccio chomping on burgers. Gail just came in and ordered and hung out with us while she ordered before she was on her way!
My friend Maryann just moved out to California and hadn’t yet been to In-n-Out Burger so I had to take her – well, that, and the fact that we had to shoot an actor from Twilight: Eclipse in Pleasanton so of course there’s an In-n-Out on the way! Anyhow, we got there and it was so nice out so we decided to eat outside, but the blasphemous thing was that Maryann didn’t even order anything but a coffee – an iced coffee at that! Oh well, I enjoyed my Double Double genex-style well enough.
Usually at the bodybuilding shows I cover, I have to shoot a certain way which is my standard style but adapted to physique photography. However, I’ve been wanting to do a little more when I have time to shoot something a bit more conceptual and since I’ve worked a lot with Lori we decided to try something a bit different. I still was shooting with deadlines and time limitations but I wanted to have this sort of mysteriously muscular woman theme for this part of the shoot. Not sure if it works, but I kinda like it…
I get asked a lot about the physique photography that I do and I decided to put together a slideshow of the recent work I’ve shot. I’ll keep adding to it here so obviously it’s pretty long now, but if you are interested in my work please get in touch. I am available for assignments, commercial work and have done numerous private shoots as well. Rates vary so email me to find out more! Most of my work is of female bodybuilders, fitness athletes and models and my style (which always evolves) is shown in the slideshow above.
Check out the shots I took of Sherri Carnicle that are now posted on Zivity. Here’s one of the shots in the set:
So this past weekend at the Jr Nationals, I had wore my hat to the show and decided to shoot a few folks with the hat for a new series. Here’s Kira Neuman, who took 2nd in the MW class rocking my hat!
I had this posted as a comment on my MySpace page by gonçalves. I don’t think I’ve ever been drawn like this before so I got a kick out of it. Can anyone figure out who everyone else is? I think the top right is Debbie Bramwell – I’ll leave the rest to you all!
