Weights for Women by Tonyr Weights for Women by Tonyr
When I started in the photography/modelling industry in 1989 I initially became known for gym shots of women. At the time I found that few women looked to weights as a serious exercise option. The ones who did were very extreme and if anything scared other women away from using weights. My idea back then was to present fit and attractive women with weights and to photograph them to look authentic and inspiring. This is an image I did just recently for a woman who wanted gym shots for her portfolio. The shot reminded me of the essence of where I started in photography. To this day I still love women who look balanced and empowered.

Very nice work, my girlfriend used to use weights before she was abused by her former partner, she's found this very inspiring in her work to get back to full fitness.

I'm not "obsessed" with working out but I love the way it makes me feel (and look)! And to see the results on other women and men...very inspiring!

can't tell you how sexy this is, not in an erotic or "do want" sort of way, but that's there too, but seeing women train like this is a testament to what diligence and effort can do! Its so inspiring, I think I might just have to watch what I eat

A work of art, both yours and hers. Her's being her body - the canvas she creates a work of art on with those weights.
Inspiring work as usual Tony.

As always, great stuff Tony. I'm loving the lighting that shows off the body tone (in particular her stomach area)

I'd say she does look powerful but I have to say for me I'm not really inspired only because she'd more muscular than I'd actually go for myself. I've started to use weights, but I'm doing it to get a slight toning.

By the way, you've got a typo in your description, "This is an image I just recently did for a women", should be "a woman." :XD: Sorry about being a grammar nazi but it caught my attention.
