Fitness Shoot with Nicole

I got a last minute call to do a fitness shoot at Showtyme Fitness with fitness competitor Nicole. She has a real good physique and we got some really nice images.

I love how the deadlifts bring out the hamstrings

- 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.


Fitness Session with Rob

As soon as Rob walked in I was a little surprised. Physique guys are supposed to be that big and they aren’t supposed to have well developed legs. That’s the category at the national level now. Rob got second place at the Canadian National Pro Qualifier in Masters Physique. He looks like he’d be ready to step on stage in the classic bodybuilding category. All that aside Rob was a great guy to photograph, super hard working and friendly. Thanks to Showtyme Fitness for hosting the photo shoot. Here’s a few images from our shoot.

Rob is coached by Elite Physiques.

Women's Fitness with Courtney

Courtney, a figure competitor came in the day after her competition. She won both of the categories she was entered in that day. We got lots of images showing off the physique she worked so hard for.

Fitness Photo Shoot with Kim

Kim came into the studio just after her fitness competition last November with the OPA (Ontario Physique Association) which is now the CPA (Canadian Physique Alliance) Kim was shredden, strong and focused. We have talked a lot beforehand to determine the types of images we wanted to create. We captured some really strong images.
