About the Models:

His first experience with a top notch fitness model was shooting with Greg Plitt, who was a friend as well as a great model.
On fine art photography: “I don’t think of myself as a spontaneous photographer who captures the moment. I prefer to capture one step removed from the moment, where reality fuses with imagination.”
On working with fitness models: “It’s important to click with the model and make sure they’re having fun, not working. If they feel personally invested in the shoot, creativity will flow.”
