Artist's Description

In my capacity as an Account Manager for a sports nutrition company I had the opportunity to work at a the International Federation of Body Building (IFBB) Melbourne Pro Show sponsored by my employer. We also publish Muscle Mag Australia so I was fortunate enough to be given a media pass to take pictures and write a story for the magazine. It was an introduction straight in to the heart of a strange world. I was stage front and centre, and had access to the backstage area and spoke to some of the athletes and heard them chatting among themselves as they warmed up and got coated head to toe in fake tan. It’s a surreal experience standing among a bunch of overly muscular men in bikini trunks…

This is my favourite shot from the show. Taken at the very end of the night, the bodybuilders put on one last posing show for the fans, and some of them walk down among a ravenous crowd who yell out requests for poses and body parts. This is the back of ‘Marvelous’ Melvin Anthony. He placed second and is a fantastic entertainer who also had the crowd in stitches during the signing session. This was a lucky shot, another photographer’s flash went off behind him when I took mine, giving him a great halo of light.

The other shot in the series:
