On 28th April 2018 I had the pleasure of photographing competitors at the Mr & Miss Bolton bodybuilding competition. With the permission of the promotors, Ronny and Suzie Orr, I was able to complete my documentary project, which started in July 2017 and followed several female bodybuilders on their journeys to transform their bodies into competitive standard physiques. The project culminated with one of the ladies that I had followed achieving 2nd place in the Ladies Over 40 category.
The whole competition was a fantastic opportunity for me to gain experience in event photography and I thoroughly enjoyed the day. I was able to take photographs both backstage and during the competition and this allowed me to really cover the full event and capture some fantastic documentary images.
