2.12 - "Needs Work" 

Another from this set... I like the emotion of the other but my son likes his biceps in this one ;-)

I haven't really done fitness photography before (other than shooting action sports which is different than fitness portraits).

This is my boy. He just turned 18 and is working on becoming a personal trainer, as a job while he is going to college. He has been training super hard for these shots. He has always been small, had lots of illnesses, from asthma, compromised immune system, food allergies connective tissue problems, and was actually paralyzed in one leg when he was 11, but got better through lots of hard work. He knee surgery at 14 on the other leg, and more hard stuff from then on. His body has been against him from day 1. But he is the most stubborn, brilliant, crazy, opinionated, strong and determined person I know. Knowing where he has come from, I look at this image and know how much work it has taken him to get here. But he doesn’t feel like this is the "accomplishment." He feels like this is the beginning of his future.

I love the expression here, and the overall goofiness of the pose. (Um, are his pants seemingly being on the verge of falling off an intentional part of the goofy mood?)

He has considerable resolve!
