Thanks for visiting my gallery on the Mayhem!
The athletic female form is a singular visual phenomenon - bold, sleek, autonomous - a postmodern muse of muscle and mystique. Female bodybuilders, fitness models and female athletes weave sensuality and strength with grace and poise; they climb above and beyond conventional ideas of beauty and femininity, offering the viewer an evolutionary icon of peak health, confidence, and undeniable allure.
I operate out of San Antonio/Central Texas and have focused on professionally photographing the fit female physique for over eight years. I've worked with models of all fitness types and levels, from internationally competitive bodybuilders to fitness trainers starting on the path to competition/physique transformation. I look forward to each new photo shoot as an opportunity to highlight, accent and stylize the fit model's build according to her personality, humor, and charm. Female muscle is not only wild, sexy or edgy - it is its own energetic fashion - one which I am pleased to capture.
I shoot trade, model's rate and pay-for-hire assignments depending on experience, interest and availability. With trade shoots, I typically offer the model a downloadable folder with high-resolution, high-quality edited images from multiple outfit series (swimsuit, sportswear, lingerie, dress, casual, costume, etc.). For shoots in which payment is negotiated for the model, I also offer some complimentary web-size series photos for her online portfolio/gallery use (PLEASE NOTE: most models I work with usually solicit me for TF work in advance, and due to a very busy work schedule throughout the year, I have to be selective of the shoots I pursue). That said, I am always seeking new shoots throughout the year. :-)
If you are interested in inquiring about arranging a shoot, feel free to contact me. Per fitness shape for shoots, I prefer to schedule shoots with fit models during their lean/competition-shape, but will also work with off-season fitness models as well. Non-interfering, respectful escorts are welcome to my shoots if needed to assist, especially if models are working with me for the first time - modeling, like any other professional pursuit, is not without its share of ungentlemanly creeps, and an uncomfortable model is not a happy, engaged model (also, I WILL almost always put escorts to work with me as lighting assistants if they're present :-)).
