Female muscle, backstage

Some backstage snapshots. Besides "pumping" and "body painting" female bodybuilders handle their make-up, hair, jewels etc. Above all, they are women.

Body to go!

Originally, this is from a color picture I shot back in 2003. I transformed it to black & white, modified the tones to low key, and added some color. Edited with Nikon's Capture NX2.

Katerina the Great

Her name is Katerina Megalou. In Greek, "Megalo" means great, big, huge. Besides being a great athlete, Katerina, in her mid 20s, is also the winner of the Ms Universe 2006 Championships.

She is a moving beauty, talented, smart, and very feminine. Fans adore her. She is a regular on top national television shows.

We made this shot at NAC's Athens Grand Prix, last November, where she guest-posed. You'll have the chance to meet Katerina at the 2008 World Championships, next summer in Athens.

Some Greek bodybuilding history

Here are some pictures I discovered, going through my photo archives.

Shots I did in 1991, almost 18 years ago. At that time, bodybuilding in Greece was "just a few good men's job". Completely amateur sport. No grand prizes, no opportunities, no publicity. Just for the love of it.
Many of these athletes today are either businessmen, running their own sports companies (gyms, supplements, etc), or coaching new athletes and teams. In picture No.2 is Nikos Sigalas. In picture No.3 (left) is Yiannis Moros.
