A lot of time, I help models pose for this series as I often have images in my head I want to express. Sometimes, I just sit back, shut up and press the button. This session with Rob & Chloe of Anahata Yoga was the latter. These guys hit jaw-dropping poses one after the other. I was happy just to be there.
- The Athletic Implied Nudes series is an exploration of the human body under muscle stress— understanding the body’s strength, flexibility, and power. Clean backgrounds, hard lighting, and black & white photography work together to eliminate distractions and highlight the muscle groups and figure of my subjects.
Beginning with Mixed Martial Artists and Boxers, I have developed my technique to capture rapidly firing muscle groups at high speed in front of the lens. The resulting instinct for timing fight photography has lead to an ability to freeze my subjects at the peak of their motion. Discovering a better understanding of the human form with this project has transitioned into my commercial fitness work, maximizing composition and positioning to best showcase the human form.
