Marc

you are a good guy... I will just say that sometimes things are not always what they seem. I do not think you know this industry as well as some of us do.

That being said you are entitled to your opinion, but I rather you use it to promote yourself instead of playing white knight to someone else. JC doesn't need you..he has his supporters and as many of us pointed out this is not about dissing him or being jealous this is about discussing certain issues.

I have worked with herbiceps and tre and both have been outstanding. I have not worked with JC not because of any bad reason.. I have chosen to only shoot for print and fitdina.com these last few years.  I will agree that those covers do leave much to be desired... with photoshop  even I could clean them up...

His contest coverage is very good and we all appreciate the effort and support he gives many of those girls. I dont care about the contract if it works for some then by all means take it.



Ur a good bird Dina, I also dont think its just about the industry which you know so well, its also about people & character. Because this is not purely just a business for anyone. After travelling 35 countries and working in 5 continents, you can guess that im pretty good at reading people. And I need to be. So I'm nobody's white knight but where im from, you do look out for mates.

JC has been kind to me, offered me a place to stay, without knowing me well or asking something in return and i respect that
& its more than many people would do in this industry im sure.


i usually dont think about JC every day, but now ive been on here, he's getting a sincere form of flattery by all of the attention...haha!

As we say here on getbig, you just "owned yourself" as like Tre said I am *not* from the US Grin

But it's all good, like Tre said stick around....


Actually i didnt say u were from the US, "you guys" was a general reference not specifically directed to anyone

but ill forgive u both too

 Cool

well have a think about it, why would JC put Contest pics on the cover when all of you go look at them anyway?

Duh!

Marketing! The cover shots are all Muscletease member site related, and thus good promo for that site he pushes.
Ok he's not shooting the cover of MD but thats not what he's pushing. The covers, which reflect his pay site photos, push that site!
You can argue what should be on the cover, but I think its Pretty simple math.


so who's spinning now?

Since you're new here and obviously don't know me from a hole in the wall, I'll let that go....

Everyone seems to have glazed over one important point here, JC does ALL THE WORK HIMSELF!

So from the shooting of contests, to updating his website & doing all web design, to making & designing other competitors websites, to shooting girls & updating his member site

AND

its his second job, he is a Computer Engineer too.
Not bad for a Mexican JC Wink


So penchant for gripes from flattering minds aside,
if there is anyone who, for their second job (let alone as a primary job), is doing more to cover Women's Fitness, Figure & Bodybuilding in this country..or anywhere for that matter


Indulge me & tell me who that is?

Hi Isaac Grin!
That pic shows perfectly how I felt in Dallas.....sooooo extremely HOT, boling hot that I thought I was going to pass out!  Hopefully we were able to get some decent pics from that shoot.  Absolutely loved the pics that I have seen from Chicago and NY...someone is quite talented-ISAAC!!!!! Yes, it is always fun and an adventure shooting together Grin



Hey Krissy honey, I think its about time we did another shoot now you're PRO & looking amazing!

Ya beta make some time into ur busy Olympia schedule for me!

Wanna give him some advice he can use?  Advise him to never, ever, ever shoot another video clip as long as he lives, because he just doesn't 'get it'.  He does have a chance in still schmotography, however.   

Even if it was as simple as him forgetting to transfer the funds from savings to checking, why didn't he simply say, "My bad" and apologize? 

Bank errors can and do happen.  You might want to handle all of Mr. Lopez' PR from now on, because you're a lot better at the excuse-making.  Did he tell you about his responses to those women who were affected?  The guy has no shame. 

I don't have to ask anyone - I'm telling you.  (as an aside, Tanya has previously spoken highly you)

You're welcome to make excuses for and defend this guy all you want, but despite all your best efforts at spin control, you simply don't have enough bullets in your gun. 


Ok buddy, seriously why would JC stop shooting video when, as i have pointed out already,
he has 800 members who pay monthly for it & enjoy it?

Not everyone has to approve of anyones style, but if MANY women do like working with him & his members site is doing GREAT, then i think they are the most important virtues he has to stick by. Not whether you approve of his video style or cover shots.

In relation to the bank account, it was NOT a case of forgetting to transfer funds, but bank error as the cheques shouldve cashed.
Two of the girls have yet to contact JC that their cheques bounced, so how could he apologise if they have not even contacted him to voice their concern? The other Two did contact JC, and im certain he did point out what happened. His/Banks bad, easy.


Actually i prefer adhering to the principles of non-violence (see Gandhi) to using bullets,
but i understand that maybe you need to vent as its beyond you that there is ONLY a minority of people who think like you do. 

Touch down for HardFitness there.

I'm happy Tanya said good words about me,
but I'm sure if I started shooting more topless stuff, and then video, not everyone would love me either

awe or intimidated? haha! He wishes! I'm travelling the world, he's only travelling the states!
I also give JC pointers on his shoots. Like adding music to a shoot, so the girl gets more comfortable. Especially a video shoot.


Have you never heard of Bank errors? they can happen, maybe uve been lucky enough never to have one
Do you know that 2 of the girls contacted him after the bounce and he told them to re-cash & voila, they got the money.
The other 2 have failed to contact him & have not re-cashed the cheques. So thats pretty silly if you ask me.


Oh & for my cred, feel free to ask any of the girls that ive shot with since i started shooting Fitness girls in 2002;
Krissy Chin, Jelena Abbou, Christina Lindley, Tanya Merryman, Nikki Warner, Amy Llinas, Tara Caballero, Elise Penn, Christy Resendes, Trina Goosby, Elaine Seth, Danae Oyler...After 5 years, ud know them all right? and theres my Size 10 for ya, Aussie style!


Dont worry, i wont dig up on you. I'm not a gossip but i like to stick up for mates

 Cool

I've had the good fortune of being friends with Tanya since the mid 90's.  She is an extremely hard worker and poetry in motion on the fitness stage.

Nice interview! Great work & thanks for the welcome people Smiley

Tanya sparked my initial interest in Fit & Beautiful women years ago. I'm sure she has inspired many.

Dina, ive only met u once...and rememba u were getting hit on just b4 we met, YET
you then bought me a drink.

And of all the beautiful ladies ive met in my travels across the globe, very few would make that sweet gesture

92  Getbig Womens Area / Figure, Bikini and Fitness Discussions / Re: Why would anyone sign this???? Discuss! on: August 31, 2007, 07:05:27 AM
who cares how many members JC has.. more power to him. we are discussin a contract that may or may not work for the women...

hmm I am hoping that the women are making as much money off their bodies as everyone else....

and yes a few women have posted on this  not just males...  in fact this contract is being discussed on several boards

As far as I can see 2 women have posted on this thread that have worked with JC & both posted in support of him.

Correct Dina?

So thats a 2 for 2 there for JC huh Wink


Also I think you need to re-read this thread if you think it just contains facts, when in fact pundits have resorted to feeble name calling. Unless people here think its mighty professional to discuss facts and then diss someone as a pimp wannabe or whatever.


Its nice to be so righteous isnt it, do we have any buddhist monks around here?




*looks around*





Ya, I didnt think so
93  Getbig Womens Area / Figure, Bikini and Fitness Discussions / Re: Why would anyone sign this???? Discuss! on: August 30, 2007, 08:14:59 PM

There's a marked difference between discussion and dissing, this thread clearly show that.

I only see males dissing here & im sure as you say they are the ones sharing plenty of stories too,
so if its not jealousy amongst males, then indulge me


JC does have about 800 members if im not mistaken, does anyone on this thread have that?
I'm a good Photographer but I dont have that & I wish i did!

 Cool
94  Getbig Womens Area / Figure, Bikini and Fitness Discussions / Re: Why would anyone sign this???? Discuss! on: August 30, 2007, 06:38:07 PM
However, we can only speak for ourselves individually when it comes to jealousy right Dina?
 
I'm merely pointing out that I'm sure there are some jealous folks on these boards, who do love to jump on someone like JC (who is not a Pro Photographer but is making great money on his website) when they get the chance.

That can be because they are jealous.
If im new here and i can see it, then im sure many others also see it too

I met JC last year at the Olympia and he is a great guy & very professional at what he does.
Ok he hasnt been a photographer for 10 years but coming from nowhere to having one of the biggest members sites in Fitness/Figure/Bodybuilding in one year is a pretty amazing feat..well done mate!

No need for people to be jealous because of that.

96  Getbig Womens Area / Figure, Bikini and Fitness Discussions / Tanya Merryman latest Photo Shoot..9 years on still lookin' Great! on: August 29, 2007, 07:40:50 PM

The First mother to win any Fitness contest back in 1998 is looking better than ever!

Enjoy!
