Magazine Shoot

Corey Sorensen is a phenomenal guy. There was just me and him at the shoot. He did it on location. A lot of this, this is one of the most interesting things, a lot of the stuff that you see in the magazines is done in somebody's kitchen, with a pulldown screen, and people don't realize that. It's really that easy. The studios aren't that elaborate. It says that you have quality people taking good pictures with people that are in good condition.

So, all of what you see in the magazines is all, when you get into it, you kind of laugh and think this is what they're doing, but the perception is everything. But it was definitely a great guy, any of the shoots I've done, people have been nothing but professional and whatnot. I did have a couple incidences where they weren't, but I just put the wall up. And that's something you've got to be careful with too.

Whenever I went to shoot the physical cover, I'll be honest I was disappointed in the way I looked. And I wouldn't tell very many people that but I really was upset, because I was in a different phase in my training but I tried my best to look good. I got there, and two of the most ripped guys I've ever seen in my life where there. And I was the third guy who was shooting that day. Two of them were on magazine covers on stands right now, and still are. But what I did was, I knew the best thing I get from that experience was to creating a relationship with one of the best fitness photographers in the nation, Corey Sorensen.

So, what I did was, you know that photo shoot was such a big-time shoot that I got picked up at the airport. They had a catered, it was good. But I wasn't ready, so it really doesn't matter.

So, the next time I shot with Corey Sorensen, I paid my plane flight, I got the taxi from the airport because, again, I was moving my feet and I created relationship with one of the best guys out there. And the material that I got with that I still market was today on my website. You know, when you create good relationships with strong people like that, you've got to go after it no matter what it cost you if you want it bad enough. Everybody thinks it just comes out of the blue and they say you're lucky. But in reality, you make your own luck.
