Recent Fitness Photoshoots

Last month I did some fitness shoots right after the Stephanie Worsfold Classic with Scott and Lexi. Here are a couple of images from the shoots.

- 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.


Athletic Nude with Karina

Karina came to the studio a short while after her competition, in which she did well. Karina was extremely well conditioned and it really showed nicely in the hard contrasting light. We did a lot of beautiful poses and Karina was really athletic too and did a great handstand. I always appreciate athletes taking time out of there training to do this project with me.

Dumbbell row, great back muscles.

Great form and musculature

- 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.

Melissa, a client of Demelo Fitness booked a photoshoot at the end of her program. Josh's clients always come in great shape and great attitudes. We did the shoot at Showtyme Fitness, I've done many shoots there before and is always fun place to visit.
