First post of 2018, and it is COOOOLD (for Texas, anyway)! :-O  Still early in the year for engaging new shoots, but I am pleased to kick things off this month with some lovely new shots from the first of two new studio sets done in December with ATX fit model and all-around awesome sauce Britni Farand.  Love photographing this young lady (in case you can't tell), and she can't help being a wonderful, enthusiastic muse with an always impressive fit physique.  Enjoy, and check back for new shoots this year!

Studio Physique Fitness-Glamour Photo Shoot - NPC Figure Lina Tafolla - Part 5 http://www.egprophoto.com/blog/2018/1/studio-physique-fitness-glamour-photo-shoot---npc-figure-lina-tafolla---part-5

Enjoy these final set of featured shots from my last fitness series shot back in June with NPC women's figure competitor and fitness model Lina Tafolla.  Lina's post-show contest shape physique continually impressed me during our shoot and I hope to work with her again the future. 

Bodybuilders and fitness competitors - are you ready to flex your contest-shape muscle in front of my lens later this year? Personal trainers and workout gainers - is 2018 the year you'll boost your social media profile and personal athletic brand with some powerful fitness photos to market yourselves to clients and fellow influencers?  Reach out and let's shoot!

Fall Studio Fashion-Fitness-Glamour Photo Shoot - Britni Farand - Part 3 http://www.egprophoto.com/blog/2018/1/fall-studio-fashion-fitness-glamour-photo-shoot---britni-farand---part-3

2018 is in full effect - and super cold! (Well, at least cold for Texas...)  Thought I'd distract myself from the freezing temperatures outside and run down the winter-break clock by sharing some new photo sets from 2017.  These are from my third and final set shot in November with ATX fitness model and girl-pal Britni Farand.  Consider these a preview to a couple of soon-to-be-featured sets shot in December with this wonderful young lady.  My studio could not get enough of Brit's muscle in 2017 and 2018 is already starting to catch the fever. ;-)

Gym Fitness Photo Shoot - IFBB Pro Women's Physique Jodi Leigh Miller - Part 1 http://www.egprophoto.com/blog/2017/12/gym-fitness-photo-shoot---ifbb-pro-womens-physique-jodi-leigh-miller---part-1

Last post for 2017 (and on my birthday, nonetheless!), so why not feature a new series that's been in the works for some time? ;-) Had the privilege of meeting and shooting with IFBB Pro Women's Physique competitor, veteran bodybuilder, writer and all-around cool person Jodi Leigh Miller at the Metroflex Fort Worth "The Castle" Gym back in late September 2017 just following her last show for the season.  Having followed her bodybuilding career for some years even before my foray into fitness photography, working with Jodi was a true delight and one I hope to repeat in the new year.  Shots featured here are actually from our last set together (we're still in the process of selecting images from other sets!), but given Jodi's professional aptitudes in writing and literature, I'm sure even she'll appreciate the slight metaphoric irony of reading the last page of a mystery novel first. ;-)  In any case, revel in this lady's muscle!

That wraps up this year - onward to 2018. Who's to say what the future holds in store?  As the late Hunter S. Thompson would lure and harrow, "Buy the ticket, take the ride." Happy New Year, folks and fans - be well out there. :-)

Contest-Shape Fitness Studio Photo Shoot - NPC NQ Figure Stephanie Britt - Part 2 http://www.egprophoto.com/blog/2017/12/contest-shape-fitness-studio-photo-shoot---npc-nq-figure-stephanie-britt---part-2

My penultimate post for 2017 - some featured shots of NPC NQ Women's Figure (and champion) Stephanie Britt from our November 2017 post-show studio fitness photo shoot.  Steph swapped the contest suit for some supple sportswear, grabbed some weights and demonstrated how and why she earned three top places at the 2017 NPC Lackland Classic show.  Ripped muscle, fierce reps and pumped poses - doesn't get much better than these on set. :-)  Hope to work with this badass lady next year!

Contest-Shape Fitness Studio Photo Shoot - NPC NQ Figure Stephanie Britt - Part 1 http://www.egprophoto.com/blog/2017/12/contest-shape-fitness-studio-photo-shoot---npc-nq-figure-stephanie-britt---part-1

Had the fortune of meeting and working with a new local face in the studio - NPC NQ Women's Figure (and champion) Stephanie Britt.  Fresh off a triple-first-place win at San Antonio's 2017 NPC Lackland Classic show in mid-November, Stephanie posed and flexed her top-place physique with poise and ease despite still learning her way around fitness modeling.  An accomplished barrel racer and horse-trainer in her own right, Steph aims to take both her horse training and bodybuilding to the next level in the new year.  Keep your eyes peeled for her on the national stage!

Contest Shape Gym Fitness Photo Shoot - NPC NQ Physique Miranda Sanders - Part 4 http://www.egprophoto.com/blog/2017/12/contest-shape-gym-fitness-photo-shoot---npc-nq-physique-miranda-sanders---part-4

During the holidays and nearing the end of the year, it's always fun and rewarding to look back on the past months celebrating achievements and marking victories. These shots from my fourth and final contest-shape gym series with NPC NQ Women's Physique competitor/champion Miranda Sanders post-San Antonio Classic at The Muscle Factory in San Antonio, TX do just that.  Miranda continues to drive upward in her bodybuilding and training career, and her sheer determination definitely mirrors her intensity in the gym.  Looking forward to working again with this awesome woman in 2018!

Fall Studio Fashion-Fitness-Glamour Photo Shoot - Britni Farand - Part 2 http://www.egprophoto.com/blog/2017/12/fall-studio-fashion-fitness-glamour-photo-shoot---britni-farand---part-2

The holidays are upon us, and we're keeping things hot in the studio while it's cold outside! Feast your eyes on these latest lingerie shots from my second November photo shoot set with ATX model and all-around badass girl Britni Farand.  Miss Brit may not be naturally fond of the color pink, but she knows all about working it in front of the camera. ;-) The hits just keep on coming with this young lady!

Fall Studio Fashion-Fitness-Glamour Photo Shoot - Britni Farand - Part 1 http://www.egprophoto.com/blog/2017/11/fall-studio-fashion-fitness-glamour-photo-shoot---britni-farand---part-1

That's right, guys - the Brit is back! ;-) My incredibly cool gal-pal, ATX model and wiry muscle-muse Britni Farand made her way back to my studio in mid-November to work my lens in the style she delivers best - cute-badass.  We turnt up the 90s hip-hop and belched bounced through sets like it twas' no thing. :-P  Working with competitive bodybuilding/fitness clients in the studio is awesome, but so is working with beautiful, fit friends who automatically get just where you wanna go.  It's always a play-date and fun collaboration when we shoot together, and there ain't no stopping it.  Enjoy these samples from our first set!

An achievement of awe and beauty, female muscle never fails to impress and astound me. While I don't often get an opportunity to shoot a client's contest-shape physique in a bare state, NPC Women's Figure competitor and fitness model Nanette Gorena agreed to let studio light and shadow boldly play against the hard cuts and chiseled lines of her unconquerable form in a nude study.  Enjoy (and appreciate) these shots from our last physique photo set captured in August!

Bellies still feel stuffed from post-Thanksgiving carb goodness, but let's not forget the gains made this summer! Relish these shots from my third contest-shape gym series with NPC NQ Women's Physique competitor/champion Miranda Sanders just after the San Antonio Classic in September 2017 at The Muscle Factory gym in San Antonio, TX.  Went for a bit of "semi-Hulk-out" look with the green light - Miranda's muscle and intensity did all the rest! :-)

A couple of new featured shots from my June 2017 studio shoot with NPC women's figure competitor and fitness model Lina Tafolla. Easily my favorite series from all the sets we shot, Lina's contest-shape muscle gleams and pops gorgeously as she gets a bit of lifting and flexing in. :-)  She and other NPC competitors are rocking the San Antonio stage for the 2017 Lackland Classic this weekend - go muscle!

Last set of featured shots from my contest-shape gym shoot with IFBB Pro women's physique competitor/Project AD athlete Brittany (LaNae) Bull at The Original Gym back in August 2017. Britt's huge, lean muscle takes names and shows no mercy as she powers through upper body sets and dominates squats to wrap an awesome summer shoot.  Looking forward to working again with this powerful lady in the future!

Not one month after our first physique shoot together in July, NPC Women's Figure competitor and fitness model Nanette Gorena returned to the studio in August for a couple of photo sets just after the San Antonio Pro show. Able to project an incredible intensity in combination with her incredible contest-lean musculature, we made some awesome shots together.  While a bit late in their feature, she still pops wonderfully in these.  Enjoy these frames from two of our three studio sets! :-)

Some sample shots from my second contest-shape gym set shot with NPC NQ Women's Physique competitor/champion Miranda Sanders just after the San Antonio Classic in September 2017 at The Muscle Factory gym in San Antonio, TX.  Despite her level of achievement and potential, Miranda always makes it a point of remaining humble of heart and mind as she unfailingly credits and represents those who've helped her reach that level, including her trainer and fellow bodybuilding competitor, IFBB Pro Nat Rochner.  Be proud of your hard work and dedication, ladies!

Some new featured shots from my third and final studio set shot with mega-ripped IFBB Pro women's physique competitor Roxanne Edwards around the San Antonio Pro show in August 2017 - our "Blue" series. :-)  A perfect punctuation to an awesome shoot with this ripped, fun and fearless lady - if I'm lucky, our paths will cross again in the near future.  Roxx on!

I first worked with NPC NQ Women's Physique competitor Miranda Sanders back in May 2016, when she was just starting to compete and model (some older shots from our first studio sets together can be found here and here).  At the time, she was still learning her poses and working to finesse her presence in front of the camera lens.  Flash forward to just over one year later, and a more muscular/fiercer Miranda shows up to shoot together at The Muscle Factory gym in San Antonio, TX in early September 2017 following the San Antonio Classic show weekend with a win under her belt and the type of focus that's forged through personal experience, active confidence and determination.  Having seen how far she's ascended in just over one year, I predict promising things for this young lady, both in bodybuilding and in life. :-)  Enjoy these shots from our first workout set together!

Third round of featured shots from my studio shoot with NPC women's figure competitor and fitness model Lina Tafolla in June 2017. Lina goes sultry with some strappy vinyl spike-heel boots and an equally strappy dress.  Temps may be dropping with cooler weather, but this lady continues to smolder! :-)
