Beautiful Vision

With this year coming to an end, I just keep getting more and more good news. Today I just picked up a copy the the Bruno Gmunder book
"Beautiful Vison"
This is the first coffee table art book that i've been featured in. What makes it even better is the profits from the book are being donated to an aids charity http://www.sidaction.org/.

This is one of my shots featured, shot by "Hotsnapz" exclusively for Beautiful. Make sure you check out the Hotsnapz blog big things happening on there in 2010.

You can purchase the book from Amazon or direct from Bruno Gmunder

"Nine" World Premiere

Ok I dont want to brag and name drop buuuttttt, what did I do thursday night? Just went to the cinema, few people there Daniel Day Lewis, Penolope Cruz, Nicole Kidman, Kate Hudson, Dame Judi Dench to name a few. I was lucky enough to get an invite to the "World Premiere of Nine" the new film from Rob Marshall Director of Chicago. Not bad walked my first red carpet a few feet away from the gorgeous Penelope Cruz :). Unfortunately I never got as far as taking my camera out of my pocket, but here is press pic of the cast and the movie's official trailer

Here is the second look from Liz's make up and styling set. Certainly different. Had a play with the editing myself. Not a too bad a job lol, Once again photography Simon Barnes and Makeup / Stying Liz Scott

Something Different

I've got a few new shots to share with you. Will upload the second one next week. Liz Scott who I have worked with in the past (a fanatstic model) is now a qualified hair and make up artist. So we managed to get together to get some male model shots for her portfolio. Completely different look for me, actually really like the hair :). Again photography by Simon Barnes always does a great job. On a serious note if you ever need a MUA (make up artist) its well worth getting touch with liz her modelling portfolio aint bad either

Just a quick update, wanted to share this bit of digital art with you. Its an old shot from earlier in year, worked up in photoshop. You have to love photoshop! I'm the only real element in this image, the background, car, helicopter and rain are all CGI. Always been a fan of digital art so hopefully this will be the first of many.

Legs

First things first, got the next two LA Muscle TV Model Shows Lined up so watch the LA Muscle TV page http://www.simonhoward.net/page3.html to see what we've got lined up. Will be adding details soon.

Hope you all enjoyed the read on LA Muscle Magazine from yesterdays blog. Got so mcu to write about its hard to spread it all out. Wasnt going to write anything about training today but had one of the best leg workouts i've had in ages today. So thought i'd share it with you.

Warm up
5 minutes on a staionary bike.
3 sets leg extensions
3 sets leg curls
3 sets un weighted squats
(always like to make sure i'm thoroughly wamred up especially for legs)

Leg Extensions & Leg Curls (not a superset but alternate between them with as much rest as needed)
1 x approx 6 reps on leg extensions about 10 reps on leg curls
(failed about here, im terrible at keeping track of weights and reps)
1 x triple drop set with a few partials on both

Leg Press
1 x approx 12 reps
1 x drop set about four drops each set taken to failure with a spotter, few forced reps

Front Squats (havent done these in ages and really like them
2 x approx 12-15 reps

Stiff Legged Deadlifts with Dumbells
2 x 12 reps (did sets of 10 rep unweighted reverse lunges)

Alternate Leg Extensions (one leg at a time)
1 x to failure

Leg Curls with broomstick (these are awesome like preacher curls for your hamstrings
1 x to failure

Unweighted Squats with rope for balance
1 x failure approx 50 reps


Had to site down for 15 - 20 mins before I did abs. Got an awesome pump and it killed me. You may notice im quote vague on the reps and weights. I honestly dont pay any attention an the end of the workout you know if you have worked hard or not.


Here is a pic from a gym shoot few months ago just seemed suited to this post.
