By looking at these photos, it is clear that Southern California’s unique shooting locations are perfect for fitness photography. The bright sunlight and quiet background of beaches make them great for fitness photos, especially since beaches are places were buff men go to show off their physiques. The channelized rivers of Southern California were great backdrops as well, the uniqueness of the setting making the photos taken there very interesting. The tunnels are great choices for fitness photography as well because they provide a plain, neutral-colored background against which physiques really stand out. Thus, there is no doubt that photographer James Franklin used the unique and varied photo shoot locations in Southern California to take great shots of fitness model and NPC Men’s Physique Competitor Eric Turner’s physique.
