Just before Christmas, I was lucky enough to be asked to act as the body for a physique photo shoot. Dale Strickland-Clark, a professional photographer (and husband of my friend, sports masseur and fitcamp instructor, Heidi), had heard about my 8-week body recomp challenge and asked if I’d go along to his lovely studio so he could take some physique shots for his portfolio.
I ummed and ahhed (not being used to that kind of thing!) and then thought of course I will! A free photoshoot with some professional images at the end of it? OK!
The shoot was quite an eye-opener: professional fitness models out there have my respect – it is not easy to hold “flexed” poses for a long time, making sure you’re balanced and symmetrical, all the while trying to look “serene” (ha ha – not sure I ever achieved that part!) Thank you Dale for a fun photoshoot and a great set of images. Here are some of them.
PS It should be noted I am not currently that tanned, pumped up or dieted down 😉 (Yes, I sought expert advice on the topic of “Help, I’m being photographed in sports kit and need to look my best as quickly as possible!”)
