Caine, the Natural Bodybuilder



During a trip to Vancouver, I did a quick shoot with Caine, a Canada-based bodybuilder who has had great success in several competitions.

He won first place in the heavyweight division of the Canadian World Natural Sports Organisation's Muscle Mania in Toronto, and has also won the title of Mr. Fiji in that South Pacific island nation. He's been following a family tradition, in a way. Years earlier in the capital city of Suva, his father was named Mr. Suva, and also Mr. Junior Fiji.

Caine started lifting weights as a teenager and, as you can see, was in excellent shape for our brief shoot.
 

  

 
In this last shot, Caine wears a costume he's used in some competitions. (Bodybuilders need to have fun too!)

Jay: Mixed Martial Arts, One-on-One






In the photos and video posted earlier this week, we learned about Jay's talents as a model and his goals as an actor. Now, Jay provides us with a close-up, one-on-one tutorial about the basics of staying fit through Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) and Muay Thai boxing. The photos speak for themselves regarding the benefits of MMA. And be sure to check out the video -- Jay's hands move at lightning speed as he boxes the camera. This New York City-based male model is certainly a fast-moving target.

Sneak Peek: Wesley



Some of my best-received male model photos were shots that I made of Wesley, a male model originally from Brazil, who grew up in New Jersey. I just posted some great shots of this male fitness model on my other blog, http://www.portfoliolatino.com, but wanted to give you a taste here, too. Please be sure to go to my other blog to see even more of him.
