Athletic Nudes with Yve

Had a great shoot with fitness competitor Yve right after her show. She was a great poser and had lots of athletic ideas to shoot. It’s always a pleasure working with someone creative like that.

- 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.

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.

Athletic Nudes with Mindy Part 2

I had done this series with Mindy last year after she competed. We both agreed there was more to shoot in the series and we came up with some new poses. The images turned out very good.

A little softer than the images on black, but still shows off her physique.

Athletic Nudes with Malcolm

Malcolm, a personal trainer, came down to the studio to shoot my athletic nude series. He was in great shape, nice and cut but still with lots of energy to engage the muscles for the shoot.

Dancers in the Mist

I've been working on my dance photography since the beginning of 2018. In conjunction with building up my portfolio I've been doing a series of dance pictures taking in the fog (fog machine in the studio) For this series I am just using rear lights and using the fog as a weak reflector in the front. The setup really shows off bold shapes very well and the variance in the amount of fog means each picture is a little different. So far I've had 4 dancers shoot this with me and I'll probably do one more and then let it rest for a while and try and come up with something new.

Athlete Series

I am working on a long term project with different athletes to photograph their physiques in implied nudes in black and white. The main point is to show off the power and athleticism and not to be salacious. Tyrone was an awesome model for this project and really impressed me with this jumps and body control. Also he could spin the basketball on his finger, which was really cool.

I am looking for athletes, male and female, from any athletic discipline for this project. Contact me if interested.
