Zoo Trip

I got a new lens for a trip later this summer, the Sigma 150-500 5-6.3. It’s a big lens and I typically don’t use that extended focal length so I wanted to practice with it a little bit. The Toronto Zoo is one of my favourite places to visit so I decided to start there. I shot outdoors only because of the focal length and the aperture.

I plan on a few more practice sessions this summer before I go whale watching.

- Mark Ruddick Photography - My images are an exploration of the human body under muscle stress — understanding the body’s strength, flexibility, and power. Creating these images has given me a better understanding of the human form which has transitioned into my commercial fitness work. 

I am a London, Ontario photographer who specializes in fitness, bodybuilding and fight photography.

I love to tell stories as anyone who's worked with me can attest. That includes visual stories through photographs. Let me tell your story and provide high impact images of you to sponsors, agencies, family or just for yourself.
