Mr. Olympia Dog Training

Talking with Charles Glass last Sunday at the FitExpo about our ad shoot for Bodybuilding.com. A huge favorite for both of us that was in magazines and online for a couple of years.

Charles Glass, the most famous bodybuilding trainer in the world, alone in a gym training a dog. So much fun!

FitExpo L.A. Fun

What it looked like at the FitExpo Los Angeles yesterday, Sunday. My most distributed photograph ever (millions and millions), Arnold’s stand in and body double walking in the crowd (my friend Roland Kickinger), and look for Newd Gym.

On To The Olympia And Arnold

He has gone on to stand on the stage of the prestigious Olympia and the Arnold Classic. Xavisus Gayden actually was first seen in bodybuilding magazines from a photo shoot he had with me at Palm Springs Fitness Center a few years back. Now a star in Men’s Physique, he is also to be saluted for being a United States Marine. Outstanding!

Four Days In The Gym With Ava

One of my favorite photo shoots ever. Spending four days in a gym and evenings poolside photographing Ava Cowan. The best!

There is an actual purpose for all of those mirrors in the gym. Just like IFBB Figure Pro Ava is doing here. Watch your form, the movement of the muscles as you do your lifts. It will get you in touch with actually what is happening and also keep you doing things right.

Ava was here at Palm Springs Fitness Center week doing a photo shoot for a workout magazine series. One of the most respected and admired women in the fitness business. Thanks Ava Cowan!

Fitness Journey Transformation

I photographed and wrote a monthly feature for Bobdyuilding.com in Iron Man Magazine about some wonderful people on their fitness journey. It went on for three years and this story with Juliet Banks was the last. But way up there as one of the most wonderful! Photographed at my favorite gym, Palm Springs Fitness Center. Thanks!

Juliet_Banks-Before_After

Juliet Banks spent her time devoted to helping others with very special needs. And indeed her own family had very special needs as well. It took a toll on her own health and well being. But there came a time when she realized that she would not be able to help anyone if she didn’t do something about helping herself.

Juliet never wanted to share her story, too ashamed about where she had been. But her involvement in the fitness world brought her to being selected for a feature as the BodySpace Physique Of The Month.


EAT LIFT SLEEP REPEAT

“EAT LIFT SLEEP REPEAT” – Sometimes the fitness women I photograph wear very little clothes or none at all for our photo shoots. Sometimes, like¬†Courtney Solomon did, they wear something that has some really good fitness advice on it!

One of the many photo shoots I have done at Palm Springs Fitness Center. That is where I work out and where I am also now their Social Media Manager. You will be seeing more of my photography and video on their Facebook page, so please check it out and “Like” it, just for me! Thanks! Right here at Palm Springs Fitness Center.
