Shots from the 2011 Greater Gainesville, held August 13, are up on the site.
I’m always surprised by how much bodybuilding talent is tucked away in the smaller boroughs across the state. While the show was small, it was well-run and the lighting was good.
I did get caught off-guard and only got a couple of (bad) shots of the lone heavyweight competitor, as he was on the far side of the stage from me and was sent off after the first round of compulsories rather than shifted to the closer side as I had expected– though that had happened in an earlier weight class and I should have been prepared. Even though the quality wasn’t great, I included them in the collection.
I read on Ian’s Facebook page that he is donating his proceeds from the show through August to the promoters to add to their donation to STOP! Children’s Cancer. So I encourage anyone who might consider purchasing a photo from the show to go to iajephoto.com as soon as possible.
