International Firefighters’ Day

From a photo shoot I did for a magazine series about fitness in the military. At March Air Reserve Base. Photo shoot note… I shot this with a Phase One medium format camera system.

International Firefighters’ Day is observed each year on 4th May. On this date you are invited to remember the past firefighters who have died while serving our community or dedicated their lives to protecting the safety of us all. At the same time, we can show our support and appreciation to the firefighters world wide who continue to protect us so well throughout the year.”

“The role of a firefighter in today’s society – be it urban, rural, natural environment, volunteer, career, industrial, defence force, aviation, motor sport, or other is one of dedication, commitment and sacrifice – no matter what country we reside and work in. In the fire service we fight together against one common enemy – fire – no matter what country we come from, what uniform we wear or what language we speak.”
– Lt JJ Edmondson, 1999


Firefighting And Fitness

From a magazine feature series I produced and photographed for Iron Man Magazine. It was about fitness in the military. This was a training day with the firefighters at March Air Reserve Base. That is their training aircraft fuselage burning with aviation fuel. Me right behind them shooting photographs.


She Was There…

I know she was there, I saw her and she saw me. It was very desolate but I am thinking she can take care of things. I came back later after dark, but she was gone. My imagination perhaps?

After, Before, Amazing!

I photographed some fabulous bodies at Muscle Beach on Memorial Day. Only days later did I start learning just how fabulous. Melissa Loya as she stood in front of my camera backstage in the workout pit. What a beautiful woman with a rocking body! And then Melissa Loya only eighteen months before at 200 pounds when she said to herself “No More!”.

Melissa and other amazing transformations seem to have in common Train Insane Gym in Anaheim California. From what I am seeing, this gym appears to be the secret weapon for turning Befores into Afters!

Muscle Beach July 4th is coming up. If you would like me to photograph your afters, on stage, backstage or your own photo shoot the day before or after the show, please click here to sign up. And please do it soon, your after is waiting! Click here… Muscle Beach Photography Sign Up
