Many people know me as a Fitness Photographer, I take that as a honor. People often ask how did I end up being this way. Honestly, I began my photography wanting to be a Glamour Photographer. I shot several models in that field as well. Then I shot a model, that changed everything. The model that I met through my friend and shooting buddy Jeff Coulter of Visualpoison.com introduced me to Jessica, and invited me to shoot her at his studio. Jessica had a amazing fitness body! I began to have her pose flexing her biceps and she asked me "Are you into fitness". My answer of course was yes, I always loved looking at fitness magazines and admiring the bodies of the athletes. Jessica told me that she knew several people in the fitness industry and could set up a fitness photoshoot for me. I told her that would be awesome! Jessica arranged me to shoot seven fitness people at Metroflex Gym-Houston. Just like that I was in the mix. I was way over my head actually...nervous, nausea was setting in but I completed it and the shoot came out very well. After that, through Facebook, fitness people began to see my work and like the images. I was so very proud. Almost a year ago, I attended my First NPC event. It was the NPC Texas State Championship in Stafford , Texas. I had no idea what a big show that was at the time. I saw some amazing athletes that day. What will always stand out to me was the wheelchair athletes...I'd never seen that before andI was blown away totally. I still remember the amazement when they took the stage. At that moment, I was drawn into the fitness industry. The industry's passion, love is amazing, thought not for everyone. I love it, some call them freaks, but I love the freaks though!!! In a few days I will return to Stafford Texas to once again Hit the Texas State Championships, I consider this day my Fitness photography Anniversary! One year in the game! Things really took off for me last year after the show, and I hope to continue my quest to be the best photographer that I can be!
