For those of you who don’t know me, I am the chief photographer of STRONG Fitness Magazine,  I was also the Chief Photographer for Oxygen Magazine having shot over 60 Oxygen covers and thousands of spreads over the years. To date, I have shot over 200 magazine and book covers. You can see those here.

If you are interested in shooting, lets make it happen.

I’ll be travelling to various shows and STRONGCAMPS across the country as well as hosting shoot outs in various cities. Email me to see where I’ll be, you never know, I might be in your home town soon. My email is paulbuceta@gmail.com.

 

I’ll be adding more cities to my list as interest grows.

Do you have a group that would be interested in shooting? If there are enough I’ll come to you. Email me at paulbuceta@gmail.com for more info.

*Please be advised all dates and locations are dependent on number of bookings. The locations for the shoots are generally in hotel suites close to either the major city or close to event. I notify models of the locations as soon as I have them. If I’m shooting in a hotel suite, I usually reach out with all the shoot specifics once I check in and have the suite number.

If we’re shooting, be sure to get your FREE subscription to STRONG Fitness Magazine. Just let me know at the shoot and I’ll take care of it.

*******  Things for the shoot ********

Here’s a little bit of information for you leading up to our shoot.

Please bring all clothing and accessories you plan on shooting in. I have select pieces we can pull from but not enough for an entire shoot. I recommend avoiding items such as evening gowns, and dresses. Often they don’t work well with the environment.

Make up and hair will be 1 hour and 15 minutes prior to the shoot time.

All shoots are closed sets with models before you and after you – Please no boyfriends or husbands out of respect for other models. The shoots take place at one location. Because the time is limited, I won’t be able to travel to specific locations during our shoot.

The final payment is to be made at or before the shoot to avoid any problems. More questions? Run them by me.

Even if you’re not planning on booking, here is a link for your safety with regards to booking shoots.

Looking forward to working with you!

Below are just a few success stories from my last group shoots.

I had shot Jessica Rinaldi in a suite at an expo. Her physique, style and character enticed me enough to show her to the team for being considered for a cover for STRONG Fitness Magazine. She got it, and not just one cover – She landed two.  She is now an Ambassador and heading up STRONGCAMP in the Caribbean for the last two years.

Fast forward another shoot and she’s got herself another cover!

I showed Kelsey Byers’ images to Oxygen Magazine and she raised some eyebrows. As a result, she flew up to my studio in Toronto to shoot for them. Since then, she’s appeared on Oxygen’s Off The Couch Cover. Since then, Kelsey has become a STRONGCAMP Ambassador and has headed up her own camp in Houston.

I showed Holly Barker’s images to Allure Lingerie, one of the clients I shoot for regularly. As a result, she landed some real well paying catalogue work. She flew into Toronto and we shot an entire line for them.

Jessie Hilgenberg booked me at an expo. This was our first meeting.  Before heading to the expo, Oxygen told me they needed some good abs shot and I knew she would be perfect for it… And was she ever, landing an amazing two page spread. It doesn’t end there either, I invited Jessie to host various STRONGCAMPS for STRONG Fitness Magazine.

Holly Bricken showed some of the images we shot to a few magazines and got an amazing two page spread from it in Muscle and Fitness. Oxygen also liked what they saw and booked her to shoot. She currently has a 5 page spread from that shoot – Congrats Holly!

While I can’t make any promises, often times great things come from these shoots.
