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 a shot taken on the stairs outside at the back of Dallas Brooks Hall. The massive Toney Freeman is caught in a contemplative moment before prejudging. Toney was great. Apart from this moment, every time he saw the camera pointed at him he would shoot an intense look straight down the barrel of the lens and hit a pose.
