Athletic Nudes with Karen

Karen came all the way from Alabama to work with me on the Athletic Nude project. Obviously in great shape Karen had a bunch of really good athletic poses.

Great flexible posing

- 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.

Athletic Nudes with Sonny

I had put out a call for participants in my Athletic Nude series and Sonny responded. He said he was moving to London the next week for a job. Little did either of us know at the time his job was in the same building as my studio, so that was a really funny coincidence. We only had a very short time to shoot but I think we will set up a part two of this shoot for the series.

Fitness Boot Camp Photoshoot - Gaudet Fitness Solutions

I've worked with Shelley Gaudet of Gaudet Fitness Solutions out of Paris Ontario before. She runs small group personal training to people. Myself and Melissa O'Leary (makeup artist) went out to Shelley's fitness studio / property. I photographed 4 of her clients all around the property as a milestone to their personal fitness journey. Everyone of her clients exuded an amazing amount of positive energy, a real testament to Shelly's training and methods. Afterwards we did a few group pictures which turned out great. I look forward to working with more of Shelly's clients this Saturday coming up.

Athletic Nudes with Kim (NSFW)

Kim is a fitness trainer who came a long way on her off season to shoot with me. She's a great model and a lot of fun to photograph. (She can laugh on command which is cool) Below are some of the images we shot for my athletic nude series. To date they have all been in black and white, but Kim's too colourful to monochrome like that.
