Q. My question is, when are we going to see some of the ‘fit guy’ entries?! – Joanne Whiteside, Norfolk UK

A. Well asked Joanne! – your very own ‘fit guys’ coming up!

I wrote a blog in February, asking you to get out there and photograph some fit guys, and here are a few of the ones that have been sent in so far.

I hope these will encourage more of you to get out there and get shooting! There’s no time limit on this, it’s just an excuse to go up to a good-looking guy and ask if you can photograph him. If you need some tips, check out the PDF at the bottom of this blog.

Leave some comments, and tell us what you think! Check out the original blog and keep sending them in! The Fit Guy

RAMI – By Inga & Annette Kretschmer, Germany

“We are a mother-daughter-photographer team from Germany and as we read about your ‘Fit Guy Challenge’ we couldn’t resist. (You are SO right; this is definitely a GREAT excuse to get some handsome guys in front of the lens :-).”

Wow - what a stunning guy - amazing bone structure. And the backgrounds and composition are fantastic!

PHIL – By Maria Lynne Norledge, Birmingham

“Well, you asked for the fit guy, so here he is – the very lovely Phil. I rather enjoyed this shoot – it’s a tough job but someone’s got to do it :-)”

Nice! What can I say?! Great positioning! That reminds me, I must go to the gym!

SCOTT – By Barbara Leatham, Wiltshire

“Scott really didn’t stand much of a chance once I decided he’d be great to photograph, so one Wednesday morning just before Christmas I cornered him by the milk section in my local co-op, and just asked him how he’d feel about modeling for me.

The picture with the name ‘Scott’ on the concrete was a complete surprise and too good an opportunity not to use.

Scott is so happy with the images that he’s asked me to work with him on a 1920’s style shoot in the next few weeks!”

That's great news! I think you'll start a trend for people sneaking round their supermarkets looking for talent! Send in the 1920's shots - we'd love to see them!

PATRICK – By Natalia Baker from London

She didn't have to look far - this is her husband - lucky girl! Love the moody looks.

Looking forward to seeing some more fit guys – keep on sending them in!
