Before the Bodypower Expo 2018 event in #Birmingham at the weekend, I was asked to photograph competitor Ashley Staines at Henrietta Street Gym by Nic Edgerton, his coach at Dream Team Fitness. Ashley went on to come 3rd out of 30 competitors. Congratulations, Ashley!
I work with model/actor/fundraiser/photographer Joel Hicks far too rarely nowadays but he’s still my “go to” for any kind of shoot that involves sheer muscle and the ability to adapt to any role. When you organise a workshop called “Warrior“, there was only ever one model in the frame. Joel never disappoints, throwing 100% into absolutely everything he does. My group and I were rewarded with some excellent images (we think).
These images were taken using either studio flash OR the wonderful natural window-light that my studio, Strangetown, is blessed with.
