Bill Dobbins:
In Front Of The Lens


"You spend your time photographing some of the most amazing muscle women in the did you get that job?" I get asked that a lot. And the answer is simple: I invented it. When I started concentrating shooting and writing about women bodybuilders and aesthetic female muscle, almost nobody else was doing so. But during my career in this industry I have spent most of my time in front of the camera. Below are some occasions when I got to step out in front of the lens and be photographed with various celebrities and, most importantly, some of the lovely ladies I have the good fortune to work with on a regular basis.
