I have shot several fitness competitions in the past, and will be covering some more this year. I'm based in the Washington, DC area, but get around to a variety of other locations as well (Las Vegas, Miami, New England, Pittsburgh, Mississippi and others).
I also have studio equipment and like to do shoots for material that can be used in a variety of magazines like Fitness & Physique, Ms, Fitness, Natural Muscle, Oxygen and others.
If any contest promoters are interested in event coverage, I can be contacted via email at email@example.com.
Or if competitors would like to arrange a shoot, they can inquire about locations I'll be on various dates. Right now I generally do shoots for free and supply athletes with copies of all images taken in return for granting permission for me to submit materials to magazines. Although the shoots don't pay models right now, it could be good for adding material to portfolios.
Feel free to contact me for more information if interested.
