If you've ever wanted the ripped muscles and intense gaze of a pro athlete, Benjamin Von Wong can make it happen.
Von Wong isn't a personal trainer...he's a photographer. And he recently turned a group of ordinary people into super athletes using only camera and lighting equipment.
"I was visiting the offices of SmugMug when a conversation came up on how they were looking to fill up their gym with some black and white portraits of their employees working out," Von Wong told BuzzFeed Life. He proposed that they take things a step further with action-packed images, featuring edgy lighting and a rain machine.
"Participation in the project was voluntary and not everyone was planning on being a part of the shoot, but once people went back into the offices raving about their photos, others began to flock over to be part of the experience," he said.
