One of the best ways to preserve the results of your bodybuilding efforts is to immortalise your physique with a picture.

As bodybuilders, you strive daily to achieve superior physical development, so ultimately – whether on the stage or on the beach – your muscles can be shown in the best possible light. The sense of achievement that goes hand in hand with attaining good muscle development, as well as the ultimate reward, superior health, are great reasons for beginning, and continuing, a bodybuilders program.
However, there are certain times when you look your best (in the weeks leading up to a contest for example). Also, with advancing age we tend to lose muscle and conditioning, our best years become a pleasant memory to reflect on as time erodes the Herculean physiques we once possessed.
One of the best ways to preserve the results of your bodybuilding efforts is to immortalise your physique in the form of a still image. Having quality photos taken is a great way to capture the hard work and sacrifice bodybuilding requires, either as a way to chart progress, launch a career in modelling, or simply reflect on a key moment in ones life.
Ultimately, good photos serve as a reminder of the achievements one has made. Your photos can be a source of inspiration for others working their way to physical greatness. Having said all of this, nothing is worse than an average photo that does not display the body to it’s best advantage.
Bad photos can actually distort the physique, making it appear at well below it’s best. If photos are to be taken it’s the best to get it right the first time.
Having quality photos taken can be approached in several ways, the best method would be to use a professional photographer who knows exactly what they are doing, as this takes the guesswork out of the equation. Especially at a time when you have ‘Comp Brain’, to be able to have someone to guide and get the best out of you is the ultimate situation.
