Michael Boyd… hashtag WEAPON!!! Thanks for a very cool shoot today and best of luck at MuscleMania this weekend big fella! A big shout out to CrossFit Torian for yet again giving me a sweet space to do my thing!
For those that know me, know that I am an excitable dude… And so when I was confronted with the bodies and personalities of these ladies to shoot, I was pretty freaking excited!!! Amelia, Jacinda, Jaana and Darcia, are all stepping on stage in their first ever figure comps over the next fortnight, and so wanted to get some shots taken as a memento of their hard work and dedication… These bad a$$ ladies have been constructed by none other than Ms. Figure Pro Universe, Tammie Sarkozy. So, it was little wonder they were looking extremely sharp and well prepared! The afternoon was one of my most fun to date and it couldn’t have been the success it was without the support of CrossFit Torian as one well kitted out FITography studio!!!
Here’s a preview of what we got up to:
It’s been one hell of a weekend and it all culminated with one of the most fun shoots I have had in a long time… These ladies were RAD! As was Chad and the pooches! Bekk Millwood; PT and Nutritional Health Coach asked me a while ago if I would like to shoot her and her clients as part of their annual celebrations for goals and milestones achieved; and of course, I jumped at the offer! Bekk has been a staunch supporter to the WOD Dogs project and is an avid animal lover, so the shoot was always going to incorporate her clients’ dogs! The ladies, dogs and Bekk’s beau, Chad, were a heap of fun… and seriously awesome models. As you will see below!
The Schulz family are pretty much the most genetically blessed in all of the land (that’s not to say they don’t work hard, because they do – In every aspect of their lives)! Even their dogs are cute as sh*t! Here are two of the ‘Fab 5’, just hanging out at CrossFit Babes Miami, pulling trucks and being generally awesome… SportsMed sponsored WOD Dogs feature athlete and dog – Clay and Rhino:
I love my work for the simple reason that I get to hang out with (and meet) amazingly talented, healthy, positive and driven people. This past week, I had the pleasure of working with such a group (again) – The crew at HangStrong Gymnastics; this time to shoot their new Tee and Singlet line. There are some wicked designs and colours up for grabs… So, if you can’t walk the walk, or talk the talk, at least try and bluff everyone by looking the goods! Visit the team >>HERE<< to get more information on not only their rad clothing, but their coaching services to anyone/affiliate/gym wishing to become more efficient in gymnastic movement. There is no better crew to take you to the next level…
It’s fair to say that Tammie Sarkozy blew me away today at our shoot… This woman’s body is a work of art! Tam’ is 3 weeks out from the Musclemania Universe Comp’ in the Figure Pro Division, held in Florida… Tam’ was awarded her Pro Card in 2012 during Musclemania, Figure America, Figure Division where she took 1st place! This will be Tam’s 8th show after taking 1.5yrs off competing, to do some body reconstruction… And the reno’ is looking insane!!! This is proof, ladies, that women with muscle ARE HOT!!!
A special thanks to Zack Williams and Simon Colley of Gym Cartel – Newstead for giving us the perfect space to capture some pretty rad pics today! You boys are 2 of the best in the business, and Gym Cartel is testament to that!
P.S. You also have 2 of the best beards in the business!
After a little break, the SportsMed sponsored WOD Dogs project has resumed with one awesome little family. Gregg and An Wilson of (the very new and very kick-ar$e) CrossFit Dux, and their two Samoyeds; Bear and Sai, happily gave up some of their weekend to pull off some funky, cute and athletic poses in front of the camera (something a little foreign to Gregg, given he is an extremely talented photographer himself and is usually the one taking the pics – You can check out his rad work >>HERE<<)… This dynamic duo LOVE CrossFit and LOVE their dogs… A fitting combination of passions, and the reason they were a ‘no-brainer’ to be a part of this project. Here’s a little sneak peek at some of what we got up to:
