My mission is to take the traditional idea of a fitness image in a different direction, one that embodies the passion and dedication of my subjects. These athletes are very real. They have dedicated their lives to fitness or their chosen sport. I pose and light these amazing physiques in a way that allows me to tell a story. Regardless of their fantastical backdrop, the athletes have invested the sweat and the hours needed to look this way. They pushed the iron. They stuck to their diet. They went the extra mile. Here are their destinations.
