As a photographer of female bodybuilders, figure & fitness athletes spanning about 40 years at competitions and exhibitions, I have had access to many of the athletes and was able to arrange for subsequent private photo sessions. The model shoots were for designed magazine features, photo exhibits, calendars, and portfolios. I've found it is essential to relax your model through humor (self-deprecating jokes are much appreciated), tone, and sensitivity, explaining clearly that the... continue reading

I had a great time shooting Eri in the studio. She is a hugely expressive model and really easy to direct and work with.This image actually surprised me, when no noise came out! It was almost like my ears had stopped working, when they couldn't hear the scream...Hope you like it! continue reading
Took some photos of Chinese teenager girl. She is not professional model, and even more... She is never posing before. May be I wrong, but I feel that Asian culture not so open as western and for many Asian people very diffucult posing for camera, so, my advice, if you work with asian people (not professional model) ask them be just themself, not try posing, and you can recieve very natural photos and emotions. continue reading
I wish to congratulate Seattle model Serjski on her first image sale through other channels! As some of you may know, individual image sales are not lucrative earnings for the most part, but every sale counts. Beyond the sales, here is what I really enjoy.I’ve worked with many models who do not fall into the stereotypical model “look.” If I had a sale for every model who has expressed their desire to find their niche in this extremely competitive arena only to be told they do not... continue reading

Travel, there's nothing quite like it. If you've never done it before though and are branching out from virgin territory, or you are a rookie looking to become a novice, the thought of it can be quite intimidating. Here are the basics that everyone can consider, just like we learned in elementay school,the five "W's" and one "M" to help make your trip planning easier. There are hundreds of factors besides these ones though.It depends on the group. Traveling as a female, or if you are gay or have... continue reading
I never chose to travel, travel chose me. Well…maybe not but it’s a good way to start this. If rephrased properly, travel was what I knew best. But let’s rewind and start from the middle of my travels because the beginning is too far back and will be saved for one of those long rainy days.Observing my friends facebook statuses was a hard way to gauge how I was doing. While most talked about getting a new promotion, getting engaged or (ahem) baby (number 1, 2 or 3!) mine read, “Angela... continue reading
