Photographer Turns Everyday Office Workers Into Superstar Athletes Without Altering Their Bodies

January 6, 2015

The online photo sharing website, SmugMug, came to photographer Von Wong to have black and white portraits taken of their employees doing something sporty. They never expected to get results like this.

These are just everyday people - office workers, programmers, and parents.

$20,000 of Hollywood level lighting equipment and a rain machine make a huge difference - muscles beautifully defined, faces perfectly lit.

Their bodies are not airbrushed and there's no body/tummy tucking. The only photo-editing tweaks are with contrast and to make the images black and white.

"Good lighting and great equipment is only a small part of making people look their best," says Von Wong. "Getting them to believe how amazing they looked, was the true magic ingredient behind the creation of these shots."
