The year 2010 will mark my 25 year as a professional photographer & also my th 25th year
photographing in the fitness industry. My work has been published in every issue of NPC
News & FLEX Magazine since 1986. There is not another photographer in the sport who
can claim these credentials.
Due to numerous requests, I am making this information for NPC & IFBB Bikini, Figure &
Fitness competitor photo shoots available at my photo studio in Pittsburgh, PA.
The price for a day shoot is $1,500.00.
There is a $250.00, non-refundable deposit due 2 weeks prior to the photo shoot.
This price includes hair & make-up by Amber Altany, www.amberaltanymakeup.com , who
has worked with every women’s IFBB Professional who has been photographed in my
studio & has done work for many competitions like the NPC/IFBB Pittsburgh
Championships & NPC Teen/Collegiate/Masters National Championships.
The photo shoot session generally lasts approximately 6 hours with hair & make-up taking
about 90 minutes of that time.
What to bring to the photo shoot? The more you bring to shoot in the better. What I
normally shoot are bikini's, lingerie & anything funky, sexy or cool that you really feel will
make a great photo. The goal is to try & get about 5 to 6 different looks. If the photos
meet magazine approval, they may also appear in the NPC News’ “Bikini Beach Bodies”
or “NPC Fitness Corner” sections. To even be considered for this, you must shoot in thong
You will receive all images on a CD/DVD with Personal Usage Rights to print & to publish
online for self promotion only. The amount of images vary but we will typically shoot
between 250-300 images during the session. You will also receive two (2) complimentary,
high-resolution retouched images of your choosing.
You must arrive the night before the photo shoot as we will start make-up & hair at 10 a.m.
The hotel to book your room is a 1/2 mile from the photo studio & about a mile from 2
different grocery stores. There is a gym within walking distance. The link to the hotel;
You need to book your flight home preferably after 5 or 6 p.m. the day of the shoot.
Remember we will need to leave for the airport approximately 1-1/2 to 2 hours prior to your
flight departure time.
