Athletic Nudes with Mindy

This was my third time working with Mindy on this project. We tried to get some different poses as we have worked together a couple times before, though I couldn’t resist my standard back shot. We shot a couple of days before her CPA Show in Guelph. A show in which she took Overall Women’s Figure. Mindy is always great to work with and is trained by Jodi Boam.

Showing size and vascularity in her arm.

Rear double bicep is a great way to show off the whole back.

Strong, muscular and feminine.

- 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.
