Bicep Curls Done Right

I Love This Book Cover!

Yes I shot it and it is exactly what I had imagined. It was with Doug Brignole for his very successful book “Million Dollar Mu$cle – A Historical and Sociological Perspective of the Fitness Industry”.

In the fitness and bodybuilding world for over forty years, Doug has competed in bodybuilding all around the world since the age of 14! He is a very respected author, speaker, trainer and historian of the world of bodybuilding.

Photographed at Palm Springs Fitness Center where not only have I worked out for eleven years but where I have done many of my photo shoots. Also now the Social Media Manager there, you will be seeing much of my photography on their Facebook page. Please check it out and “Like” it! Thanks! Right here at Palm Springs Fitness Center.

Family Photos

I was asked yesterday if I photographed family photos with children. Well yes but perhaps not exactly how most people might think of family photos.

The Eyes, The Body, The Moves…

One of the most incredible women ever in the world of fitness, Ava Cowan. The video and photo shoot we did for Bodybuilding.com promotions and advertising. Her body, her eyes, her movements… Ava is a magnificent work of art.

 


A great body is…

A great body is the latest fashion accessory! The print ad that was shot during the video I posted yesterday. My all time favorite advertising photo shoot and the print ad ran in magazines in total hundreds of times. Thanks!

BTS For Ad Campaign

I have been having great fun with short videos and especially “behind the scenes” in my photo shoots. The idea for me comes from a series I had done for Bodybuilding.com for their ad campaigns promoting “BodySpace”. Then a new social media concept for fitness people that when I came into the picture had only 7,000 members and then  grew to millions. That in turn helped grow the company to perhaps pushing towards a billion dollars of sales annually.

The videos were shot with a video crew and built around my photo shoots for the print and online advertising, features and content such as online wallpaper. The ads we produced are some of my all time favorites and appeared in magazines monthly for a long time. One of the print ads became a favorite for women, affixed to their refrigerator doors as fitness and workout motivation. I dare say the same ad was torn out and taped next to many a guy’s office wall or truck dashboard. So here is a favorite and watch for the “behind the scenes”.
