“The team was truly amazing! I had so much fun and could not be happier with the final product.” -Daniella



From the moment you book your session to the time you walk out with your images; our focus is all about you. We understand the nerves that can go along with this type of photography, so rest assured that by day of your session, you’ll be ready to rock out in front of the camera. While planning your session we’ll provide the resources you need to be ready and guide you through wardrobe and posing selections to choose looks that flatter your specific body.

Once you arrive at the studio on the day of your shoot our team will attend to you as they create the perfect look for you. You can even opt for a professional hair and makeup stylist on-site. Once you are all glammed up it’s time for you to shine! Worried you’re not a model? Don’t be! We’ll pose you down to your fingertips and coach you throughout the shoot.

Finally, when you return for your image reveal we want to leave you speechless! You’ll view your images for the first time on the big screen before beginning the task of picking your favorites to display as a beautiful piece of wall art or a luxury album.

Bob will discuss poses and wardrobe at your no-charge consultation in advance of your session. Fitness / Yoga wardrobe doesn’t mean the same thing for every person. He’ll shoot multiple looks during your session, so you will want to have a variety of outfits from which to choose. Wardrobe can range from jeans, yoga pants or gym shorts to a simple off the shoulder sweater, to more exotic exercise wear, or nothing at all.

What you choose to wear or not wear should be a reflection of you. Don’t be afraid to step outside your comfort zones because those images many times become the ones clients love the most. Don’t forget this is another chance to pamper yourself. Go shopping and get something new, don’t only bring what you’ve had sitting in the dresser forever.


“It took me a long time to take a step over the line and try fitness photography but once I did, I immediately regretted waiting so long. I look at the pictures every day truly proud of who I am in them. Thank you for showing me that there is a little super model in all of us!” -Bella


So, if you are looking for photos of you in the best condition of your life, contact us today. Allow us to capture you in the most appealing and flattering manner possible. Figure Study sessions are a luxury experience and how your final images are displayed should reflect that same level of luxury. Digital files are wonderful, but photographs are meant to be displayed.

Your body will go through changes over your lifetime. Maybe you have struggled with self confidence and feel your body isn’t “ready” to be photographed. We are happy to sit down and discuss your desires and concerns. We can walk you through the process and you decide when you are ready. Many clients tell us after viewing their finished images they were pleasantly surprised at how beautiful their bodies are.


Your image is defined by how much work you put into exercising, eating healthy and living a healthy lifestyle. When you hire a photographer it’s imperative they are as dedicated to their craft as you are to your strength and conditioning. Bob is a Certified Professional Photographer and member of Professional Photographers of America. Whether you are looking for that hard chiseled look, or a softer appearance, he understands your body and he understands lighting. Bob routinely lights and photographs exceptional images while at the same time challenging you to bring out your inner warrior.



Success only comes through hard work and perseverance. Bob has been a working photographer for 15 years, continuously pushing himself to perfect his lighting skills while developing a vision and style that is completely his own. To that end, his results provide a mastery of form and contrast that is perfect for capturing the human physique. He is now focusing his lens on fitness models, bodybuilders, personal trainers, athletes, yogis and anyone else that loves the idea of pushing their body to the limits.



Even after hundreds of photo shoots, Bob is always looking to explore new ways to refine his camera and lighting technique. Just like working out, photography benefits from changing things up. Fitness and Bodybuilding photography need not be restricted to the studio. If your gym allows it, we are happy to shoot at your location. Let Bob know what you have in mind and he will do what he can to make it a reality. No matter the reason, it’s the perfect way to celebrate how amazing you are right now!
