One of my favourite aspects of shooting with a person for the first time is getting them involved with ideas. It is always fun to work together to produce unique images that are inspired by a particular theme but are ultimately special in their own way....

I have teamed up with the lovely ladies at Axiom who are now offering private 1 on 1 posing coaching at your fitness shoot. The girls have years of stage and modelling experience and have an expert eye on how to look the very best in front of the camera....

This past weekend saw the PCA Scottish Championships come to Motherwell Concert Hall. A total of near 100 Athletes took to the stage to display themselves in front of a 600 + strong audience....

What do you get when you add me, £10K of photography equipment, a fantastic location and 3 fitness babes together? Please see the results below!! I have about 42,916 images of these crazy ladies from my shoot in Glasgow and all are worth an edit! 2 Stripboxes and a medium overhead Octa from #pixapro mixed with some skooshy spray, a dash of tasteful photoshop to colourgrade the images and a touch of luck helped make these images. The girls look fantastic and it was a fun shoot....

I approached Wole after seeing his profile pop up several times on my social wall and it was clear that he was a prevalent figure in the UK fitness industry. I am always keen to shoot with male fitness Athletes simply due to the fact that 90% of people that I work with are ladies. Wole arrived 45 mins early, which believe me never happens and from the moment he walked into the Studio I knew he was a top Gent. Meeting so many different people in my life has given me a highly tuned 6th sense for working out...

Sometimes a fitness shoot just magically works and comes together brilliantly without any real planing or obsessing over the detail. This was "that" shoot. From the first test shot, I knew this was going to be a stand out set of images for me. Ama has a beautiful skin tone and walked out wearing her bright pink top to kick us off to the perfect start....

Viera is an experienced London fashion and catwalk model who is (luckily for me) getting shredded at the moment. I shot with the former Miss Brazil UK Paul Souza last year who suggested to me that Viera would be great to work with. Viera was not great, she was incredible and I am looking forward to working with her again....

Coral was a pleasure to work with. She came in fantastic shape and although she hadn't had a fitness shoot of this style before, Coral was great in front of the camera. I elected to go for a harsh lighting setup here to really bring out coral's excellent definition and I am very please with the results. It is always a great thing to see someone's confidence grow through out the shoot and this was the case here. It is very interesting that as the shoot goes in the shots just keep getting better and better....
