Photography of Gene X Hwang
« on: August 01, 2007, 11:37:09 AM »
This thread is dedicated to my favorite physique photographer in the world...Gene X Hwang.

Gene is the Jimmy Hendrix of physique photography. 
He can take a concrete wall and turn it into the most beautiful and inspiring backdrop for stunning photos.   
He always manages to get TEH SHOT no matter what.  He makes everyone he shoots look beautiful.

And he's an all-around cool dude to boot...one of the nicest guys in the business.   8)
Gene and his partner, James Cook, have a lot of respect for FBBs and have done an outstanding job promoting FBBs and showing how beautiful they can be. 

POST YOUR FAVORITE GENE X PICS IN THIS THREAD.

I have so many favorites that I could post a few every day and this thread would never get old!

BTW, this is just the first physique photography thread.  As I have time, I'll get some others going since there are so many great physique photographers in the industry.

 :)

I'll start with a few pics of the FBBs who post on this board.

His stage shots are also fantastic.  He gets great shots during the fitness routines as well.

Genex is the number one women's physique photographer IMO. His stage pics are always my favorite.

Here's a few I like from the 2007 USAs.

Gene is totally Jimmy Hendrix with a camera!  One time, I saw him changing camera settings with his teeth and shooting with his camera upside-down, behind his head!  You rock, Jimmy X!   RESPECT!!! ;D

Gene, I think the pics you post up on your blog and the non-fitness pics on orangephotography are even better to be honest.

Great pic here:
