I have no doubt this man is going to reign victorious in June… Adrian Pang in training last night. Be watching this space for his feature!
Looking fwd to shooting these two warriors tomorrow night… Adrian ‘The Hunter’ Pang & Damien ‘Beat-Down’ Brown, of Integrated MMA. Be on the lookout for their feature in a few days…
I have just finished processing shots from the RSPCA Qld Million Paws Walk – Chermside… For those of you unfamiliar with this event; it is an annual fundraiser to assist RSPCA in providing adequate refuge for surrendered dogs, canine victims of cruelty, and educating the general community about animal welfare (in particular, dogs). RSPCA Qld do an amazing, tireless and sometimes thankless job in caring for all animals; however, NEED YOUR HELP to enable them to do what they do… Please consider donating either money or your time (in a volunteering / fostering capacity), or even better, adopt a rescue animal and help disable the puppy farming trade. I can put my hand on my heart and say they are the greatest collective of people I have had the pleasure of working with and all have a common objective… The welfare of animals…
Here’s a sneak peek at some of the shots from MPW 19 May 13. For the rest, please visit the RSPCA Qld Facebook page >>HERE<<!
4 x shoots in as many days… All as amazing experience as the other:
1st was the lean, mean and hysterical Sally Brouwer… Then the elite team at Gym Cartel… Followed by the slick Raiders Allstars Netball Team… And to top it all off, my favourite event of the year – The Million Paws Walk – in support of my favourite charity of all time; RSPCA Qld.
Here’s a sneak preview of each:
I recently did a shoot with one of the fittest ladies I know… This woman is so lean, she makes a Greyhound look chubby, and can back it up in the strength department!
Sally Brouwer is a SGT in the Queensland Police Service (QPS Operational Skills and Tactics Instructor), PT / Group Fitness Instructor at CBJ Fitness, Triathlete, Mum to triplets and just an all round #badass (she says she is an all round nice person)!!! For women (and fellas too) who are based on South-side Brisbane (or are prepared to venture into that strange part of town) and want quality training and advice from someone who practices what they preach, look this lady up!
Be on the look out for Sal’s new ‘Nutrition Philosophy’ website, being launched very soon (and if she likes her shots, hopefully they may make an appearance too)!!!
A little while ago, I was asked to photograph athletes to include in some marketing collateral for HangStrong. ‘What’s HangStrong?’ I hear you ask, well, HangStrong is a team of extremely competent gymnastic coaches providing training / coaching workshops to Gyms and CrossFit Boxes local and interstate.
The team comprises 2010 Commonwealth Games (dual) Gold Medallist, Thomas Pichler, Again Faster Development Squad member and Head Coach / Trainer at City 4051 CrossFit, Natan Geva , and 2011 CrossFit Regional (Australasian) Games qualifier and Head Trainer at City 4051 CrossFit, James Whybird.
Between the three of these athletes, anyone wanting to learn and refine their gymnastic skills is going to benefit in a BIG way. Whether you are a seasoned CrossFit athlete, or complete beginner, the HangStrong team will have you moving your bodyweight efficiently and safely… If you are on Facebook, go check them out >>HERE<<. Or even better, if you are a Gym, PT Studio, or CF Box owner/manager, book them for a workshop and have your clients love you forever for adding to their arsenal of training skill sets!
Anyway, back to my story… They have used my images for their marketing… #massiveanticlimax…
