Here’s a fun #TBT or #FBF for everyone. Octavio Perez and I had the chance to work together a few moons ago, back in 2012. Octavio, being a Master Trainer, bodybuilder and model, was no stranger to being in front of the camera, but most of his work had been in the exotic nude and male physique side of the spectrum. When we decided to get together to shoot, we decided we were going to approach it from a more fashion-forward angle. We chose the wonderful Walt Disney Concert Hall in Downtown Los Angeles as our backdrop. If you’re ever in Downtown LA, do yourself a favor and see this architectural wonder, designed by Frank Gehry, for yourself. Octavio and I had to do our fair share of ducking and diving while shooting on a very busy Saturday afternoon, but I managed to find some quiet nooks for us to work in. Octavio has been one of the most gracious models I have ever worked with and continues to use the photos we created to this day. If you live in Los Angeles and are looking for a trainer that really knows his stuff, do get in contact with Octavio.
