EP 6: Ben Mark: Getting Photoshoot Ready

Thinking of having a photo shoot that will show what you have worked for? Today on the show we chat with Ben Mark, fitness photographer based in Crawley West Sussex. 

We dive into the real-life challenges of traveling, dieting, burnout and understanding how to put your physique goals on the back burner when other things in life are the priority.  

If you’re doing a photo shoot to capture something you’ve worked so hard for, be proud of it.
