Wow, what a year it has
been for FemFlex. In 2004, we produced and posted more than double the amount
of content we did the previous year and the site continues to grow at an exhilarating
pace. With the help of contributing photographers such as Jason Orr, Tom
Knowles, Michael Saharian, TomNine, Joe Bayer, Jason Hall, Jerroll Photography,
and Joe Pellegrini (forgive me if I've omitted anyone), we were able to
shoot more models and events than ever before. Professional videographer David
Cooper has been a huge addition to the FemFlex team. We first worked together
in putting together Crowd Pleasers 2002 and it's great to have him onboard
now. He is responsible for creating the Lindsey Boswell and Brenda Smith videos,
as well as all the FVF-BodyRock videos. This partnership is one that will be
of great benefit to our members in the months and years to come. We were pleased
to welcome Courtney Morley to the family as our first full-time sponsoree.
But as wonderful as things have been for the site this year, all that means
nothing right now as the tragic toll in southeast Asia continues to rise. It's
devastation on a scale far greater than anything I've seen in my lifetime and
is certainly exponentially greater than anything I've ever experienced.
Tsunami Relief Fund:
FemFlex has joined with several other DtV-affiliated websites to set up a fundraising
effort using our videos. We're selling downloadable videos and donating 100%
of the proceeds to the International Red Cross/Red Crescent for the next few
months. That is, 100% of every dollar you spend will be sent to them. If you'd
like to help, please click on this link - Tsunami
Relief Fund - for more information. Thank you.
Updates: I'm doing
my best to keep up with those daily updates during the winter. The feedback
has been great (and I appreciate it), so I hope I'll be able to continue. I
do not have any current travel plans, so in the foreseeable future, you can
expect to see something new every day here at FemFlex.
As requested, FemFlex is now offering a 7-day, NON-RECURRING trial membership.
Unlike sites that automatically roll you into a regular, full-priced membership,
our goal here is to give you a good value for your money so that you'll consider
becoming a regular subscriber. I hope lots of casual visitors will take advantage
of this great deal to see all that FemFlex has to offer.
The Brenda Smith "Calfantasy" DVD is complete. I have no excuse for not having
it in the store yet, but it will be taken care of shortly. Courtney and Rebekah
are on the platform now, so we should know within a few days which one was completed
first. With the new PC running, I expect to turn out several solid DVDs during
the winter months.
I'm sure that you DVD customers have noticed a dramatic speed increase in the
delivery of your orders. Switching completely to DVDs (away from VHS) and getting
a professional duplicator have made my life much better and enabled me to turn
those orders around must faster.
X-Zone: The news
many of you have been waiting on is here - the X-Zone will soon be free to all
members of FemFlex. We have not yet worked out the kinks, but expect to start
seeing that content available to you within the next couple of weeks. As for
the FemFlexZone.com domain, it will remain open, but all future galleries will
be sold on a "photo set" basis, for people who do not wish to join FemFlex.com.
will be open soon. This new site will feature nothing but hi-res (640x480) video
content and limited photo galleries. It will actually be priced lower than FemFlex,
but the updates will be less frequent. The site will feature several of the
"mini-movie" type clips that have received great reviews so far. You can expect
to see a lot of the old FemFlex content there in hi-resolution. Now, I don't
expect anyone to be a member of both sites concurrently, but it will be a lower-priced
option for a similar type of content.
Have a Happy New Year,
Everyone! Thanks for all your tremendous support in making this a wonderful

FVF 2004: This year's
edition of the FVF-Vancouver was the best-run show we've ever done. From the
weigh-ins on Friday all the way through the awards presentations on Saturday,
the event ran like a well-oiled machine. Unfortunately for us, however, a series
of bad luck left us with the smallest number of competitors ever, but there
was quality from top to bottom. For the first time ever, we separated the competitors
into two physique categories - one for women who compete in bodybuilding/fitness/figure
and the other primarily for women who work out, but not necessarily for physique
competitions - in order to give the less muscular women a chance to be more
competitive in the overall placings. This plan worked like a charm and I was
left wishing we'd done this a few years ago when we started. Trina Gillis
won the overall and Wendy Lindquist was the runner-up by just one point.
Roseanne Blackburn, competing in her third FVF won the Fitness Strength
competition, while Taryn Dakha won the fitness physique division. A special
thanks to the crew at FitVilla - a USA Glamour
Girls Production for their sponsorship and help in making the weekend so
exciting and fruitful for the competitors. JP Erickson & I will no longer be
promoting the FVF-Vancouver. Nancy Lockington of Purely Natural Fitness
has agreed to take over the role of lead promoter and will guide the show into
the future. Under her leadership, we are certain the FVF will be around for
years to come and she's got the talent and desire to grow it into something
really special. JP & I had a lot of fun with the project, but thankfully realized
it was time to hand it over to someone who knows what she's doing. A special
thanks goes out to Diana the Valkyrie who has helped make the whole thing
possible the past 5 years. Without DtV, there would be no FVF, so I hope that
she'll continue her support in the future. Be sure to check out the official
FVF website for the most up-to-date information on the show and its related
As some of you have noticed already, there are several new releases in the Video
Store, highlighted by the 2004 "BodyRock's Best Biceps" and FVF-Arnold:
"America's Best Biceps" DVDs. In the next month or so, you can expect to
see Trina Gillis, 2004 FVF-Vancouver, Courtney Morley, Nicole Berg, and
Thanks to everyone for being so patient with your video orders. I'm just about
caught up now and everyone should have received everything you've ordered within
the next 1-2 weeks. If you're missing an order that is more than 4 weeks old,
please do not hesitate to contact me at "firstname.lastname@example.org" to check the status
of your order and to get a speedy resolution. Please DO NOT use the "email@example.com"
address, as it is only about 50% reliable.
Recent shoots: I
didn't do any shoots during the weekend of the FVF, but went to San Diego at
the end of the month to work with Huong Vo, Sandra Ejnes, and Alicia Leombruni,
three of the hot "Desert Divas" from Phoenix. Last weekend, I went to NYC and
worked with the lovely Jamie Reed, who remains one of the most-requested
Upcoming: This coming
weekend, I'll be in Atlanta for the GNC Show of Strength. I've got a few off-stage
goodies lined up, but because I'll only be around for two days, the shoot schedule
will be limited. There will be a lot of talent there that I just will not be
able to work with and won't have anyone else there to do any shoots for us.
Oh well. At the end of the month, I'll be in Las Vegas for the Olympia. I haven't
booked anything for that weekend yet, but I'm sure some nice surprises will
September 8, 2004
I was unable to attend
last weekend's IFBB North American Championships in Cleveland, but we had a
couple of Femflex photographers on hand to cover the action. I haven't seen
anything from the show yet, but have seen some samples from an off-stage shoot
that you guys are going to love. I can't predict when that material will begin
appearing, but it's worth the wait.
Unfortunately, I will not
be attending the IFBB World Amateur Championships next weekend in Spain. The
timing just wasn't good considering the FVF is this weekend, but I am scrambling
to locate someone to cover it for us. No guarantees, but I'm doing my best.
This weekend is the annual
FVF in Vancouver, and I'll be heading out tomorrow morning for that. Mindi O'Brien
has retired, and newcomer Trina Gillis is looking to replace her as champion,
but Wendy Lindquist has put all the other competitors on notice that this is
*her* year. It promises to be a very exciting show and full results will be
available by early next week.
The Video Store is currently
closed due to all the travel and planning associated with the FVF. The new DVDs
that I mentioned previously will be released when we re-open on September 21st.
August 24, 2004
Travel Log: This
past weekend took us to Edmonton, Alberta for the 2004 Canadian Bodybuilding
Nationals. The field of competitors was great and I've got to give props
to head judge, Debbie Karpenko, for the excellent manner in which she conducted
the prejudging. The heavyweight and overall titles were captured by Louise
St. Pierre of Quebec, who is now featured in her own gallery here.
It rained the entire weekend, but it was nice to see many of my Canadian friends
again, including Mindi O'Brien and Trina Gillis. Along with Louise, other
models were Autumn Raby, Trina G, Jamie Senuk, Antonia Grady, Jessica Oscroft,
and 'FlexinGirl' herself, Nadia Nardi, who was definitely the most
improved competitor from a year ago.
The host hotel was the
Westin and although it was extremely convenient to the venue (which was NICE!),
it was a little overpriced for what we got and meals at the restaurant were
prohibitively expensive. The biggest problem for me was not having internet
service as had been advertised by the hotel. That's so irritating and seems
to be a recurring theme this year. Thumbs up to The Old Spaghetti Factory for
serving up some terrific meals during our stay. You've gotta love a restaurant
that charges just $13 CDN ($10 US) for a nice entree and then gives you four
times as much food for just $2 more. That price also includes salad, coffee,
and ice cream for dessert. If you do go, however, be sure to ask for Maggie
(and tell Matt to go to hell! lol).
I don't travel again until
FVF weekend (September 11th), and thankfully our host hotel - the Rosedale -
does feature high-speed internet. As you might suspect, that was one of the
factors that went into our decision to select them as our official hotel. It
isn't the closest nice place to the venue, but it's got the largest rooms at
the best price, something our competitors seem to appreciate. More later on
FVF, but if you'd like to see more information now, feel free to visit the website
at www.fvfvancouver.com. Even though
Mindi O'Brien has retired, we're going to have a stellar lineup, as always.
I know that I owe you several
'diary' entries, but things have been beyond crazy around here during the month
of August. In addition to the Dallas trip for the Southwest USA Pro (and NPC)
show, I've also been to San Diego to shoot Debbie Bramwell. Prior to going to
Edmonton, I was in the editing suite for several days and cranked out a few
new titles that will be released shortly. Among those will be four separate
contest videos from the Southwest USA (I've finished the first three already),
and the 2004 FVF-Arnold: "America's Best Biceps" DVD is ready as well.
I don't know what I'll begin work on next, but it'll either be Debbie Bramwell,
Trina Gillis, Kristi Wills, or the 2003 FVF-Vancouver. If I can get back to
that pace I had last week, I'll be able to turn all of these fairly quickly,
so wish me luck.
July 30, 2004
VIDEO SERVICE UPDATE:
The new software arrived yesterday, so the Colette Nelson workout DVD is now
ready. Apologies to those who received a non-working copy or no copy at all,
but those will all be shipped out this coming week. VHS customers for other
titles should also be caught up next week.
The 2003 "BodyRock's
Best Biceps" DVD is now ready. Floridian Kim Groppi was the overall
winner, but she faced some very stiff competition from Melissa Kagan, Stacy
Sugot, Yvette White, Jennifer Robinson, Jennifer Brown, Helena Jenkins, Heather
Crowley, and many more. It will be listed for sale in the
Video Shop by this weekend.
July 21, 2004
In answer to your queries,
I'm probably going to denote the daily updates on the main page and then reserve
this page for longer posts about various shoots, trips, or events. Of course,
that could change at any time.
#1 Hard disk failure:
The biggest news right now is that the #1 hard drive is still down, and I've not yet decided which recovery shop it's going to. The major losses were the Chicago (Jr Nationals), Seattle (Emerald Cup), and Miami trips from this spring. There was a lot of other data on there, too, but it had either been backed up already or wasn't that important to me. Along with the data that's currently missing, another huge problem that results is that I'm once again cramped for HD space. That makes it difficult to manage the video editing, but I'll keep those updates coming. There's a strong chance that I'll purchase the replacement drives before the original goes into recovery.
Best Biceps a huge success
The quality of this year's FVF-BodyRock field was the best we've ever had, but Rachelle Cannon was the unanimous choice of judges Boomer and TomNine. Rachelle earned $500 for the win. She was followed by Marjorie Hunt, Laura Sutter, Michelle Burdick, Lauren Powers and Danielle Moskalenko (tied). This year's booth contest was sponsored by FemFlex with prize sponsorship in excess of $1000 provided once again by Diana the Valkyrie. Special thanks to Steve McAdams and the rest of the crew at the BodyRock for inviting us to be the showcase event on the main Expo stage again this year. Those of you living in the Washington, DC area should make every effort to get out to George Mason University to see the BodyRock next year. It's one of the top NPC regional events year after year and is worth the trip out I-66.
Muscle Mansion experiment
goes very well
I didn't get to talk a lot about it beforehand, but FemFlex and HerBiceps teamed up this past week in Las Vegas and rented a house that became the base of operations for both sites. It was a nice touch and even though there were some logistical problems (we were far from the Strip and not all of the models had transportation, in addition to the almost 4-day delay in getting our internet hook-up), a good time was had by all. I didn't shoot a huge number of women, but had some premium models in, including Amber Black, Amanda Swallow, Michelle Baker, Anne Sheehan, Gerri Deach, Mary Hobbs, Kim Kilper, and Nicole Berg. I was also responsible for shooting the 'house video', which will feature scenes from practically all the shoots that took place in addition to fun stuff, such as Kim Becker playing poker for the first time.
HerBiceps and FemFlex helped
sponsor Kim Kilper to get her to the show, so we booked her for a long session
on Friday that rates as one of the best ever. I'd gotten pretty sick that day
prior to her arrival, so Mike took her for about 3 hours so that I could rest
up. When I finally woke up, Kim informed me that she was good to go and we shot
non-stop for two solid hours and produced some incredible footage. The only
thing we *don't* have is video of her lifting weights, as she came in a day
before the weights arrived. This young woman is incredible, so you can count
on seeing a lot of her in the near future.
The other video I shot
features Amanda Swallow, who wasn't at all shy about showing off her
strength and muscularity. She has quickly moved to my 'favorite people' list
and it will be great to have her on board a year from now, as we'd love to have
her living in the house with us for a week - she was awesome!
I've put up a six more clips of Kim Kilper and a few of them include talking parts. There's also a new gallery of Jordan Graham. Enjoy.
July 6, 2004
First up, congrats to Mindi
O'Brien on her huge class and overall win at the Canadian Fitness Championships
this past weekend in Brantford, Ontario. Complete photo coverage of the event
is available here at FemFlex and as per normal, we were the first to provide
such extensive coverage, as there were approximately 1000 shots available immediately
after the show. Go FemFlex! In honor of Mindi, there have been 20 video clips
of her posted in the past week, with still plenty more to come.
There have also been a
few new photo galleries since the last 'News' update, and today's is Jody
Wald, who recently won the Alberta provincial championship.
Thanks for all the great
feedback you all have given about the site's new look. I think it's definitely
an improvement to have a functional front page as opposed to a mere decoration.
I'll just keep adding and adding to that page, until we reach critical mass.
:) Be sure to check out the new DOWNLOADABLE VIDEO feature. This is a great
way to get full-quality videos at a fraction of the retail price without having
to wait 4-6 weeks for delivery by mail. This is the wave of the future, so I
hope many of you will take advantage of it. Click
here in order to see what I'm talking about.
June 29, 2004
I hope you guys like the
new look of the site - it was definitely time to get more women's faces placed
on the opening page. I have to shoot down in San Diego today, but there are
3 new galleries up before I go - Trina Gillis, Courtney Shiflett, and newcomer
Huong Vo. Congratulations to Trina on her recent 2nd-place finish in figure
at the Alberta Provincials, where she and friendboyfriend Glen also took 1st
place in pairs bodybuilding. We're operating on a short week here, as I have
to depart for Toronto on Friday, but will get more videos up before I go.
June 27, 2004
The momentum is building
again (can you feel it?), so let's keep things going with another set of clips
from the Rebekah shoot. I'm working on some photo galleries right now
that will be available later today.
Nicole Berg is an
incredible young woman. I've worked with her several times in the 21 months
we've known one another and each time, she just gets better and better, hotter
and hotter. All kidding and machismo aside, however, she has become one of my
'bestest' friends in the entire industry and anyone who gets a chance to meet
or work with her should definitely take advantage of the opportunity. As good
and as beautiful as she is, she's still a down home ol' farm girl who is as
pure of heart as any angel. She values others as much as she values herself
and that's a quality that's extremely rare in the bodybuilding world. I wish
Nicole nothing but great success in all that she wishes to do and I'm thankful
that she's cool enough to let me ride her coattails just a little while longer.
You're the best, Nicole.
I promised Nicole I wouldn't
tell all our secrets from her weekend down here, but you've got to love a woman
who says to me: "One of my goals for this summer was to get into (qualify for)
the X-Zone." I did a quick double-take and then put my camera to work capturing
her beauty in a way it's never been seen before. I have not yet posted a full
gallery, but a couple of sample shots are available there now.
Special thanks to LA
Workout in Camarillo, CA for having us in to shoot Nicole's workout footage.
Thanks also to Duke's of Malibu, Neptune's Net, and Fan Ting for the
incredible meals they provided which brought huge smiles to both our tummies.
And lastly, thanks to Marriott Courtyard of Camarillo and its staff for
their hospitality and also for allowing the *very* late checkout. *smile*
June 26, 2004
The people have spoken
and their demands have been answered - the mighty Rebekah Kresila is
now featured in our video section as five new MPEGs went up today. She's got
the arms, the pecs, and the traps that give her one of the most beautiful upper-bodies
to ever grace the site. I know you'll just love the flexing action, which was
filmed exclusively for FemFlex by Joe of flexinfemales.com. Enjoy.
June 25, 2004
Day One with the vision
of loveliness that is Nicole Berg was fantastic. We got some great posing
footage and several nice photos at the coast during yesterday's sunset (followed,
of course, but a *great* meal at Duke's!), and have another pretty full schedule
planned today. I didn't get much sleep last night and I'm late (shocker) for
our meeting, so I just put up a small free sample preview in the photo section.
I do intend to do a video update late late tonite, after Nic departs. Enjoy
June 24, 2004
I'm not going to talk much
about yesterday's shoot just yet, but there was a 'technical' problem that will
leave me unable to post any of those shots on Femflex. But no worries, because
today is day one of a special two-day shoot that could well top anything that
we've done so far in June...and it's been a darn good month already! We're flying
in one of the most gorgeous bodybuilders on the scene today for her very own
Femflex Special Edition photo/video shoot. This one is guaranteed not to disappoint...she's
definitely all that!
I put up five more FVF-Arnold
clips just now, but probably won't get to update again until late Friday night.
If I get a free moment this evening, I'll post some samples from the afternoon,
June 23, 2004
We've gone and done it
again. Just when I think things cannot *possibly* get any better (look at the
spring roster so far, if you need proof!), we've just knocked another home run...this
time, all the way to Europe. Yesterday's shoot was with none other than new
Swedish IFBB Pro Klaudia Larson, whose biceps will rank as some of the
best you'll ever see. If there's an all-time top 10 list floating around somewhere,
they'd better make room for Klaudia, because she's got the goods and then some,
especially for the 'peak freaks' out there. Her U.S. appearance comes courtesy
of James Cook of FTVideo.com and we thank
James for hooking us up with Klaudia. She was a pleasure to work with and I'm
really looking forward to her FTVideo release. For now, though, FemFlex members
can catch a nice glimpse of this Nordic beauty in today's gallery update. Enjoy.
June 22, 2004
I've gotten a gallery of
Kim Kilper up and there are more to follow. Be sure to check back throughout
the day, as I will be posting updates as soon as they're available.
Now go check out the new
Sarah Dunlap gallery. We're not done yet - now there are free clips from
Mindi's and Colette's new videos up in the video store.
June 21, 2004
There are another 800 figure
pics now up. I've just returned from Chicago and have a ton of material from
the weekend to sort through. The weekend's shooting schedule included FemFlex
newcomers Amanda Swallow, Amber Black, Kim Kilper, Shelly Tauscher, Pam Franklin,
and Andrea Trent, as well as old favorites Marcy Porter and Steph Collins.
This weekend also marked the return of Sarah Dunlap, who shot for both
FemFlex and the X-Zone. You're sure to enjoy that. A DVD of the weekend's shoots
will be available at some point in the future, but lest I fall any further behind,
let me get to work on this material right away.
June 20, 2004
It's been a solid weekend
so far, and today's lineup is pretty impressive. There are over 500 free pictures
up from this weekend's show on the Contest
June 18, 2004
Well, it's about 4am, so
I guess I'll head out to the airport now. I'm up, so I may as well make the
trip. I put up five new MPEGs from this year's FVF-Arnold and there's a new
model in the X-Zone...Heather.
June 17, 2004
Hey gang, sorry I didn't
get to update the News yesterday, but hopefully you got to check out the final
batch of Angie Salvagno clips. You'll notice that I re-did three of them
at 640x480 with a bitrate of 1500 to improve your enjoyment. Unfortunately,
due to bandwidth constraints and the fact that not everyone has broadband, it
isn't feasible to make all the clips that size. Additionally, they're in MPEG-2
format, which I've learned that not everyone can view. I also added a small
gallery of Texas bodybuilder, Sheilahe Brown. I don't know what's on
top for today yet, but I suspect there will be a couple of new galleries both
here on the main site and in the X-Zone.
Ok, how about six new Dani
MPEGs and a gallery of Jordan Graham? Enjoy. I'm scheduled to head out
to Chicago early Friday for the NPC Jr. Nationals. I'm booked solid all next
week, so I could really use a couple of days off, but I also really want the
air miles. I'll let you guys know what I decided a bit later.
June 15, 2004
Seven great new Angie
Salvagno MPEGs are up today. Yes, we've saved some of the very best for
last, so you're sure to enjoy today's offerings.
June 13, 2004
Five more Angie Salvagno
MPEGs are now up on the video page. I'm working on some pictures, but it'll
be late tonite before they're up.
June 12, 2004
In an effort to get the
video hard drive cleared a little, I've gone retro today with some workout clips
of Angie Salvagno, our very first video from back in the day.
June 10, 2004
Well, it took forever to
get there, but after several hours on the road, Barry and I reached "Dani's
Place", which is a bicep lover's paradise. An enigma no longer, Danita Ross
is now a part of the FemFlex family, and we've got a bunch of great new pictures
and lots of incredible bicep flexing from a pair of the best I've ever seen.
Many apologies for all the delays due to travel, but I assure you it will have
been worth it.
There are seven new galleries
up in the photo section featuring Nicole Berg, Trina Gillis, Courtney Morley,
Desiree Ellis, Shelby Kadyk, Heidi Richter, and Sandy Vu in addition to
five great MPEGs featuring Dani.
June 8, 2004
Just got back from a rough
weekend in Miami and I'm heading up the California coast for a shoot this afternoon.
This could end up being one for the ages, but I don't want to get you too excited
just yet. *wink* I'm probably going to need to stay put this weekend in order
to catch up on material that's already been shot - I know I owe you guys a ton
of updates already. The following weekend is the Jr. Nationals in Chicago, and
I've got another solid lineup this year and we've enlisted the help of a couple
of other photographers to assist with the workload. At any rate, a was able
to get a few FVF-Arnold clips up last night and then there are four new Mindi
O'Brien MPEGs up today. I don't get back until late-late tonite, but if today's
shoot goes as expected, I'll *definitely* get a sample posted here for you to
see. She's that good, folks - one of the absolute best.
May 31, 2004
Happy Memorial Day.
There are a few new galleries up today featuring Evian Delly, Moorea Wolfe,
and Allison Bookless. I shot Latisha Wilder earlier this morning
and then just wrapped up a sunset shoot with Mari Kudla. These two pro
figure stars just placed in the top 10 of the California Pro and looked fantastic.
My only regret is that I couldn't shoot Latisha later in the day, but we managed
to get some nice stuff, even without great lighting. I suffered a couple of
injuries during the afternoon session, though, so I'm taking it easy for the
next couple of days before heading out to Miami to work this weekend.
May 29, 2004
Today, there are six new
Evian Delly clips up.
May 28, 2004
Five new Colette Nelson
clips are up in the video section today, including one at 640x480. I want to
start making a few larger clips available each week - if you view them full-screen,
be sure to back away from your computer screens a bit and the picture will become
May 26, 2004
Four slightly overlapping
clips from the new Crowd Pleasers DVD are up today. This video first
came out over a year ago, but the DVD has several features not available in
the VHS version, including chapter markers for the entrants, which allow you
to skip forward to your favorites. It's about time we had a female muscle video
that offered scene selection! Special thanks to David Cooper who filmed,
directed, and edited the film for coming back and mastering the DVD as well.
May 25, 2004
*deep breath* What a crazy
weekend. I was jammed up on paperwork almost all of last week, but managed to
catch a red-eye out to NYC on Friday night. Because of flight delays, I didn't
get to NYC until after noon, which gave me just enough time to get to the hotel
and then over to the venue for the Night of Champions. For the prejudging,
my seat was near the front-center of the first balcony, so I had a decent view
of the action. I was going to pass on the night show in order to watch Game
7 of the Stanley Cup Eastern Conference finals, but it wasn't on the hotel cable.
Thankfully, pro competitor Lisa Aukland
had an extra VIP seat which she gave to me for the finals, so I've got some
excellent shots, thanks to her. You rule, Lisa! I personally did not like the
fact that the Night of Champions promoter - Wayne DeMilia - chose to have the
show open with a stripshow rather than the National Anthem, but that's just
my take. I felt that it was grossly inappropriate, so my heart goes out to those
competitors who paid good money to bring their families to the show.
On Sunday, I was able to
do some great work with Annett Wittig, Jamie Reed, and newcomer Bettina
Kadet. Be sure to let me know if you'd like to see a full-length video of
Annett, as I could potentially combine this weekend's footage with what we shot
last summer. Hmmm...
Today's update has a gallery
of Trina Gillis and I'm working on video clips right now. Check out the
seven new Kirsten Haug clips when you get a chance.
May 24, 2004
Hey hey - some stuff of
Annett Wittig up today from yesterday's shoot in NYC. I also shot with Jamie
Reed and Bettina Kadet. A great weekend and lots of awesome video with the two
German bodybuilders. Headed back to LA now...
May 20, 2004
FVF-ARNOLD WINNERS ANNOUNCED:
Congratulations to Jill Kolivoski, who won the FVF-Arnold: "America's
Best Biceps" competition for the second year in a row. The competition was fierce,
but she edged out Mimi Jabablee for the title. They were followed by
Tara Scotti, Dena Westerfield, Lisa Miles, and Amy Vaughn. The prize
breakdown: 1) $500 and a photo shoot in Malibu, 2) $250, 3) $125, 4) $100, 5)
$75, 6) $50.
To mark the occasion, there
are eight new MPEGs up today from the 2004 America's Best Biceps competition.
May 19, 2004
A clip of "Misty the Mystery"
is up today and there are two new clips of Mari Kudla in the X-Zone today.
May 18, 2004
There are six new MPEGs
from the Mindi O'Brien video up today. Mmm, mmm, good! I know I'm way
behind in photo updates, but I've been jamming on admin/bookkeeping the past
several days. I'll post a few galleries later today, so be sure to check back
May 17, 2004
SERVICE NOTE: Thanks
to our friend and partner, Diana the Valkyrie, we have a new billing system
installed. Now, all of you VISA customers who lost access will be able to sign
up with no problem. One of the major advantages of the new system is that all
users who sign up with this method will be able to select their own username/password
combinations AUTOMATICALLY during the signup process. But perhaps the best feature
of all is that using this new billing system will allow us to keep the membership
cost at just $9.95/month for several more months. We're very happy to be able
to pass that savings on to our members instead of having to raise prices right
now, which is what would've happened if we'd remained with Verotel. Note: those
of you who have recurring memberships set up through Verotel will continue to
be serviced by them until your membership expires or is cancelled. All new and
returning members will be prompted to use the new system.
May 14, 2004
Six new MPEGs from Nicole
Berg are the special feature for today. I could go on and on about her all
day, but I won't - just enjoy the clips, and know that there's more to come.
In fact, there might even be a full-length video someday... *wink*
May 12, 2004
Ten MPEGs from newcomer
Rebecca Warren are the highlight for today. This was her first time ever
doing any video work and with no practice at all, she did an incredible job.
She's someone we'll *definitely* want to see more of in the future and since
she lives near Seattle, that shouldn't be too difficult to arrange.
May 10, 2004
Today's update includes
eight great new MPEGs from Nicole Berg - this footage was shot less than
48 hours ago, so this is about a 'fresh' as can be. *smile*
Regarding the weekend,
let me first give props and thank yous to Team
Gerri - Gerri, Nicole, and Rebecca - for working overtime to make my
trip worthwhile. Regarding the show itself, I didn't see it, so I won't comment
on it, but unfortunately you won't be seeing any coverage of it either. I will
say only that Nicole won her class and the overall once again, so congrats
to her. If the new restrictions on contest photography continue or spread outside
of California, then contest coverage will just dry up altogether. Oh well.
May 9, 2004
Happy Mother's Day. In
today's update, you'll find over 250 FREE shots from the prejudging of the 2004
NPC Emerald Cup Bodybuilding Championships. I traveled to northern California
for a show this weekend, but that turned out to be a huge mistake. I'll share
the details later, as I've got to head to work now.
May 8, 2004
This morning's update is
a new gallery of Kristi the Teacher. I have to run off to catch a flight
up to Oakland now - at the last minute I decided I'd go see the NPC Contra Costa,
since Nicole Berg is competing. I'll be back home tomorrow afternoon
and PROMISE to get all those signup requests processed at that time. Thanks
for your patience, everyone.
May 7, 2004
In today's update, you'll
find six MPEGs from the new Mindi O'Brien video. Enjoy.
May 5, 2004
Whew - long trip back from
NC yesterday, but I'm back in the groove now and working to get caught up on
all those customer service issues, the biggest of which is the new billing system.
I'm not sure when it will take effect, but it should be any day now. Anyone
with a current recurring membership that has NOT been cancelled by Verotel will
not notice any changes. But for those of you who've been unable to sign up with
your VISA cards, you and all other new signups will have a different (working)
system that will provide instant access.
Today's update is a gallery
of Trina Gillis, who I'll never get tired of seeing.
May 3, 2004
Hi gang - I'm still in
NC, but I managed to get a small photo update done this morning. On the contest
page, you'll find FREE galleries containing over 550 shots from the 2004
NPC Emerald Cup Fitness & Figure Championships.
May 1, 2004
Today's update brings six
MPEGs from Colette Nelson's new video, "Taste of Sensuality". I know
that C-Nel needs no introduction, but these clips and the full-length video
are sure to leave you wanting more, more, more...
April 30, 2004
I'm North Carolina for
a few days, as my sister is graduating from law school this weekend, thus becoming
the first doctor in my family. Congrats to her and best wishes for a hugely
successful future - I know this is just the beginning for her.
Today's update is a new
gallery of NPC figure star, Colette Flack.
April 28, 2004
Today's update features
six new MPEGs of the lovely Courtney Morley, whose electric grey eyes
are among the most captivating you'll ever see. This 20-year old physique prodigy
is a former bodybuilder who first tried figure two years ago and since that
time, she's completely refined herself and is now a threat to make some noise
on the national level. This footage was shot the day after her class win at
this past weekend's Emerald Cup in Seattle (Bellevue, actually) and she shows
off some of the best arms and delts in figure.
April 27, 2004
We're starting off today
with a new gallery from bodybuilder Courtney Shiflett. I couldn't believe
how ripped she was for this shoot, so I'm bummed that we only had about 45 minutes
together. I'm definitely hoping to meet up with her later this year. I didn't
do any video during this shoot, but I hope to get some next time, because she's
pretty sexy. I'm working on another gallery and a bunch of clips to put up later
today, so be sure to check back in a few hours.
Ok, didn't get another
gallery after all, but I'm sure the five new Nicole Berg clips will help
some of you forgive me. *smile* This video was shot just one day after her overall
win at the 2004 Emerald Cup this past weekend, so she looks incredible.
April 26, 2004
IMPORTANT SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT:
As you all know, we've been working our butts off to devise a new billing system
ever since VISA clamped a new set of regulations on Verotel, which then
led to almost all the VISA customers having their memberships cancelled since
April 1st. At any rate, the new system is complete and it's being scratch-tested
at this time and should be implemented here at Femflex on or about the 30th
of this month. Again, my apologies to all for the inconvenience, but I hope
those of you who've been cancelled against your wishes will return once the
new system is fully operational. As always, thanks to all for your support of
I'm still extremely tired
from the weekend in Seattle. Today, a couple of Moorea Wolfe clips to
tide you over until tomorrow's update...
April 25, 2004
gallery is now up - no use wasting any time debuting this new superstar. She's
definitely a Top Ten nominee.
April 24, 2004
With a special reference
from our good friend Nicole Berg, Femflex went deep again today completing
three separate shoots with 20-year old Courtney Morley, Emerald Cup Champion
in the figure short class. What a way to close out what has been a fantastic
April - I didn't think it was possible to keep the hits coming after Moorea,
Trina, and Kristi the Teacher, but being proved wrong by Courtney
was an amazing experience indeed.
April 23, 2004
Three new MPEGs from the
2003 FVF-Vancouver and a new gallery of Jody Wald. As it turns
out, the internet connection here is a bit sketchy, but I was able to get a
few items up today and will try to get some more stuff up for tomorrow. Seattle's
gorgeous and I'm having a good time - the lineup for the weekend is really solid,
you're gonna love it.
April 22, 2004
Five more MPEGs from Kirsten
Haug are now up. I finished cutting her video yesterday, but couldn't get
the sound completed. That'll be the first order of business when I get back
on Tuesday. I'm leaving shortly for Seattle to attend this weekend's Emerald
Cup. As you might expect, I've got some goodies lined up, but I'll be the
first to admit that I don't see how I could possibly top Trina G and
Kristi the Teacher. You know I'll give it my best, though! And you don't
need to worry about updates over this long weekend - the hotel has a great internet
April 21, 2004
Two new galleries for the
X-Zone today with more to follow this week.
April 20, 2004
For today, there are five
new MPEGs of Kirsten Haug training hard in the gym. She was in near-contest
shape for this shoot, which was done just a few days before the NPC Jr Nationals.
These scenes are from her upcoming video.
April 19, 2004
Greetings! I know you're
all wondering what on earth happened to the updates over the weekend, but you'll
have to accept my sincerest apologies as I was trapped in New Haven, CT with
no high-speed internet access. I attended the NPC Jr USAs and although I enjoyed
the competition, New Haven was a complete disappointment. I don't know how many
of you live or attended school there, but at the risk of being somewhat offensive,
I was let down by the city. Admittedly, my expectations were high - after all,
Yale University is widely regarded as one of the finest institutions in the
entire world - but I was astonished to discover that it is an urban campus and
not located in the best of areas. The host hotel - the Holiday Inn at Yale -
was under renovation and located in a downtown ghetto. Phone calls were 75 cents
for 10 minutes, and there was no high-speed internet available. I stayed there
one night then escaped to the Residence Inn a few miles away the following day.
There, we had a lot more space (for the exact same price) and the area was much
safer (all kidding aside, I'm not eager to put my personal safety at risk just
to attend a bodybuilding show). The hotel was supposed to be on high-speed internet,
but there was some snag in the connection and we never got it to work. Oh well,
I'm home now, so I'll finally do an update before going to bed tonite. As always,
thanks to everyone for your patience during this unforeseen and completely unintentional
lack of updates. So much for my dreams of a perfect April. *sigh*
But lest you think I was
soured on the entire weekend and came home empty-handed, there is a dose of
good news. Kristi the Teacher has returned! Yes, it's true - FemFlex
was able to book the adorable K-Dub for a semi-exclusive over the weekend (had
to share with our good friend Gene X - we owed him a couple, now he owes us
one! *smile*) and although we were beset by a serious technical issue that cost
45 minutes of shooting time, we made the most of the hours were did spend together
and I'm extremely pleased with the results. It would be an absolute crime not
to include her in tonite's update, so be sure to check out her new gallery.
The weekend's other models
included: Colette Flack, Marcy Porter, Courtney Shiflett, and Huong Vo.
All the women looked outstanding and props to Colette for winning the tall class
in figure and to Marcy, who was the runner-up to overall champion Tara Scotti
in the almost-tall class.
The news on the video front
is that I'm planning to cut the Kirsten Haug video on Tuesday with plans
to lay in the sound on Wednesday. That's the best I can attempt at this point,
as I leave for Seattle and the Emerald Cup on Thursday. No promises, but I'll
do my best to get it done while maintaining meaty updates as well.
With regards to the situation
with Verotel and VISA, I've completed the first two waves of paperwork, but
now must face the waiting game as they've got to send me another batch of forms
by surface courier. I want this solved by month's end, but my desires might
be sprinkled with a dash of optimism. My apologes to all who've been inconvenienced
April 14, 2004
I put up some clips from
Mindi's new video today. I've begun working on the FVF '03 video, but earlier
today received a special request to get to work on the Kirsten Haug video
instead. So, I'm going to commit to the FVF for today and tomorrow and will
get started on Kirsten's video when I return from the Jr USAs in Connecticut
April 13, 2004
new video, "High Flexocity" is ready and available in the Video
Shoppe. It took months to bring it all together, but it was worth the wait
- you're going to love it. I'll get some sample clips up tomorrow. I want to
start the Kirsten Haug video next, but haven't decided yet. I'll sleep
on it tonite.
Today's update is a gallery
of Annett Wittig, who I hope will make a return to the U.S. sometime
April 12, 2004
After an incredible weekend
behind the camera, I needed a break this morning, so I slept in a bit. I know
some of you are probably thinking, "How hard can it be to take pictures all
day?" but sometimes, it's not so much the shots themselves as what it is I have
to go through to get some of them that makes this all so difficult. Yesterday
afternoon's shoot, for example, required two separate (rocky) climbs to reach
the desired location. Foolishly, I removed my shoes for the second portion -
1) to keep them dry (had a rough experience with wet shoes the previous day)
and 2) to get better footing. What followed was 45 minutes walking and standing
on some of the sharpest rocks my poor feet had ever experienced. I guess I should
point out that I'd also misread the tide a bit, so that resulted in having to
work a little bit harder to keep the camera dry. At any rate, when all was said
and done, Trina and I got most of the shots we wanted out of that location,
so all was well in our world. During the course of the weekend, we shot a full-length
video, including a bicep-tricep workout, so I'll be excited to begin editing
that later this year. Special thanks to Trina's mother, Gloria, and her
friend, Glenn, for their assistance with the shoot. Special thanks also
to LA Workout in Camarillo for the use of their facility on Sunday.
Today's new gallery is
a special feature, as TomNine
Photography brings us Amber
Routten-Mitchell. I *may* be able to get up some clips later today,
but it'll depend on what time I get out of here. I've been working on the sound
for Mindi's video since I got in this morning, but the video PC just
suffered a really bad crash, so I lost a couple of hours of work on that. I
still hope to get it completed today, if possible.
April 11, 2004
Day 1 of the Trina Gillis
shoot was fantastic. We're here in southern California and had *zero* sun on
Saturday, but no one even cared, because the results we produced were just that
outstanding. We are, however, *hoping* the sun will break through at some point
Today, I've put up a free
sample gallery from yesterday's shoot in addition to three new Moorea Wolfe
April 10, 2004
YES! I finished
cutting the Mindi O'Brien video on Friday afternoon. As planned, I got
it down to 74 minutes, which includes an interview, a workout, and some humorous
out-takes along with the finest flexing you've ever seen. I will begin laying
in the sound on Monday morning and expect to finish the project either late
Tuesday or early Wednesday - the DVD will be ready for release the following
I threw up a small gallery
and a clip from the first Trina Gillis shoot to mark her arrival here
in L.A. Ok, so we're not really *in* L.A., but she flew into LAX. lol
April 9, 2004
The final set of MPEGs
from the '03 FVF-Arnold is up today. I'm hard at work on Mindi's
video for the next few hours and then I've got to prep for this weekend's big
project. We're bringing one of our favorites out here for a well-deserved California
shoot, so I hope you all will enjoy the results. With regard to questions about
the 2004 FVF-Arnold video, I haven't even looked at the raw footage for
that video yet. Right now, it's at the back of a very long line, but that DVD
will be available sometime in the coming months.
April 8, 2004
Video Update: After
months of delays, the Mindi O'Brien video is now on the editing platform. I've
cut the first 40 minutes of the finished video and have the whole project down
to 83 minutes. I'm hoping to pare it down to no more than 75 minutes before
release, but there's just so much good material here. If tomorrow is as good
as today, I'll be able to finish cutting it and will then just have to go back
and lay in the sound. That's at least a two-day adventure, so that would mean
this will be ready on Tuesday at the earliest. I've got a major shoot lined
up for this weekend, so Friday through Sunday will be spent entirely in the
There are eight more MPEGs
from the 2003 FVF-Arnold up today. I don't have any photo galleries ready yet,
but may have a couple of new offerings later today. For now, enjoy the video
April 7, 2004
The COLETTE NELSON DVD
IS NOW READY! We've finally got Colette Nelson's newest posing video - "A
Taste of Sensuality" - ready and available on DVD. This is Colette's hottest-ever
posing video and was shot completely on location at the FemFlex/HerBiceps Penthouse
Studio in Las Vegas this past summer at the time of the USA Bodybuilding Championships,
so Colette is in top shape and ripped to shreds in this video. She breaks out
nothing but her sexiest outfits for the viewers this time around and even gives
us a scene in the shower. This is a can't miss for diehard C-Nel fans and for
the casual fan of sensual female muscle, this is one you will definitely want
to add to your collection. I can't say enough good things about this video -
fresh off the presses and it's already one of my favorites.
Today you will find eleven
more MPEGs from the 2003 FVF-Arnold - if you thought the previous clips were
nice, you'll really enjoy today's action. There are two new photo galleries
as well - we see the latest from Shelby Kadyk and also introduce Femflex
newcomer and IFBB pro fitness competitor Angie Semsch, who consistently
brings one of the world's best physiques to the competition stage. As good as
she looks in these photos, her video is even better, so stay tuned for that.
SERVICE NOTE FOR VISA
CUSTOMERS: I'm afraid I misspoke yesterday. As it turns out, it's going
to take a lot longer to get the credit card situation resolved, because I have
to incorporate Femflex. This wasn't made clear with the initial registration,
so that's why I thought the compliance process would be a short one. I wish
that I could tell you when this will be settled, but I'm afraid it's open-ended
at this point, as much will rely on the speed of the mail coming from the Netherlands.
Again, my apologies for any inconvenience. For those who cannot wait that long
to regain site access, please email me for alternative payment options. Thank
you for your continued patience.
April 6, 2004
Today opens with the finale
of the Nadia Nardi & Jody Wald conversation. Check back later today for
the new photo galleries.
SERVICE NOTE FOR VISA
CUSTOMERS: VISA is jacking with us again, so some of you may have noticed
that you were not re-billed after April 1st and have lost access to the site.
I'm presently working as quickly as possible to bring the site into compliance
with the new VISA regulations so that we'll be able to continue doing business.
I expect this to be resolved by the end of this week, if not sooner. In the
interim, feel free to use the 2checkout method, as it is not subject to the
same regulations at this time. My apologies for any inconvenience caused.
SERVICE NOTE FOR DVD
CUSTOMERS: I've successfully re-mastered the following videos - Angie Salvagno,
Bonny Priest, Jody May, 2003 FVF-Arnold, Kristy Hawkins, Colette Flack, Tonia
Williams, and Marnie Power - so all will be compatible with DVD players worldwide.
The Kristy Hawkins and Colette Flack DVDs have additional gym workout and posing
footage not available on VHS, so that's an added bonus for those who prefer
DVD. I will be updating the purchase page within the next day or so to make
all the choices available. Thanks to everyone for your patience while this software
issue was sorted out.
April 5, 2004
Welcome to Evian Delly
who has five new MPEGs up today. She's 5 feet tall, weighs about 104 lbs, and
can curl 25-lb dumbbells for reps. Along with her big, brown eyes, she's got
some great big bicep peaks that you'll find quite impressive, I'm sure. There
are also three new photo galleries: Christine Roth, Mary Lynne Mackenzie,
and Shelli Tolaro.
April 4, 2004
The final set of entrants
from the '03 FVF-Arnold is now up as I put up eleven new MPEGs today. There
are some gems in this final group!
There's a new gallery today
featuring Erin Brown. At the risk of sounding rude or sexist, she is
one tough chick! *smile* I also fixed the gallery of the beautiful Latisha
Wilder. Sorry it wasn't working the other day.
The Marnie Power
DVD has been successfully-remastered. Colette Flack is on the platform right
now, to be followed by Kristy Hawkins. Both of these DVDs are being re-mastered
with ADDITIONAL FOOTAGE (gym workout & more posing)!
April 3, 2004
A big day FVF fans - ten
new MPEGs from the '03 FVF-Arnold. I'm still working on getting all the DVDs
properly rendered - I've now got Angie Salvagno ready, to go along with
Bonny Priest, Jody May, and America's Best Biceps.
April 2, 2004
In keeping with the spirit
of the FVF, I've got six more clips from the '03 FVF-Arnold up now. We're going
to get through these ASAP! There's also a new model gallery featuring IFBB pro
figure competitor Latisha Wilder, who has perhaps the prettiest skin
tone of anyone I've ever worked with. See for yourself!
April 1, 2004
Because of the video backlog,
I had to pick up another new hard drive yesterday. I just put up six new MPEGs
from last year's FVF-Arnold, because it's now time to start putting up clips
from *this* year. Check back in this afternoon for a couple of new galleries.
March 31, 2004
There's a new gallery of
Amery Clark up today - she's another one of the cuties who comes to us
from Grande Prairie, Alberta, by way of our good buddy, Jcc.
The great news for today
is that I just received the full set of tapes from the 2003 FVF-Vancouver.
The photos are up already, but now you'll finally get to see some nice video
clips from our best event ever. I don't know how long it's going to take me
to get this edited, but if I move it ahead of Mindi in the rotation,
then it could be finished sometime in April.
March 30, 2004
Today's update is a photo
gallery featuring top IFBB fitness pro Ally Bookless. I also fixed the
Sheila Rawlins gallery in the X-Zone.
March 29, 2004
Today's featured model
is Trina Gillis and there are five new MPEGs up today. I really, really
like this young woman...and you will, too.
March 28, 2004
Ok, we open today with
a bunch of shots from the 2004 FVF-Arnold: "America's Best Biceps" competition.
I've just completed some computer maintenance and will upload several new video
clips in a few hours, so be sure to check back before bedtime.
Be sure to check out the
five new MPEGs featuring Jody Wald - she's got more muscle than a little
March 27, 2004
Up today are three different
galleries of the 2004 Arnold Expo and Ms. International from three great new
contributors to FemFlex: Michael Saharian, Jason Hall, and Andy Vogel of Andy's
Muscle Goddesses. A special thanks to all these guys for their very kind
contributions to the site and I look forward to seeing more of their work featured
here in the future.
March 26, 2004
TODAY FOR YOUR FVF-ARNOLD: "America's Best Biceps" FAVORITES!
The Friday Special for
today is four new clips featuring all the footage I have of the "World's Hottest
Woman", Christine Roth. Those of you who've been around for a while will
recall that my camcorder broke while filming Christine - it just couldn't handle
all the heat she was putting out. But, enjoy these few moments we did have together...
March 25, 2004
Today, there are five new
MPEGs from an after-show conversation between Nadia Nardi and Jody
Wald. Sometimes it's nice just to hang out and chat. There's also a new
off-season gallery of Shanda Grandy, a beautiful young bodybuilder from
Alberta. I like her eyes.
March 24, 2004
As promised, there are
four new MPEGs of Moorea Wolfe up today.
March 23, 2004
If you visit the photo
page today, you'll find a new gallery of Moorea and for you non-members,
it's free. Check out what you've been missing! I'll start getting clips up tomorrow.
March 22, 2004
FemFlex has done it again.
Guys, we're on an absolute roll here and as I see it, the only problem with
that is that we've got nowhere to go but down. j/k I'm sorry there was no update
yesterday, but fate intervened after all and I was able to get to Phoenix first
thing Sunday morning (and yes, there were cars!). On a personal note, I met
Jackie Paisley on Sunday, and she still looks as good as ever. I doubt
she was an ounce over 7% bodyfat...just incredible. I got to shoot some workout
footage with Colette Flack and newcomer Evian Delly, who has one
of the cutest bicep peaks you've ever seen. I hope you like her, as I have plans
to do a lot more with her in the future.
As good as Colette and
Evian (love that name) were, I think it's actually the Moorea Wolfe shoot
that's going to amaze you guys the most. I've been around this business for
a long time and rarely have I ever seen someone this good at such a young age.
The pictures may appear to tell a different story, but in truth, she *just*
turned 19 about three weeks ago. First Trina, then Shelby, and now Moorea? It
just doesn't get any better than that, folks...enjoy the new gallery of Moorea
that goes up today.
March 20, 2004
Well, I'm supposed to be
in Phoenix right now for this weekend's shoot, but for some unknown reason,
there are NO rental cars available in the Phoenix area. Those of you who've
been there know how spread out everything is, so taking cabs everywhere just
would not be feasible, so I'm at home this weekend. That means I get to continue
work on the Colette video, so all is not lost. Yippee!
March 19, 2004
Today's update features
four new clips starring Marika Johansson, who gets more beautiful every
time you look at her. You X-Zone members will find a gallery of new model, 21-year
old Shelby Kadyk, who has only just begun to turn heads.
March 18, 2004
Yes! I finally got the
first batch of Shelby pictures up so that you can see for yourselves
just how hot she is. Trust me, you are going to *love* this young woman. Enjoy!
March 17, 2004
On the News side, I spent
yesterday shooting with some incredible fitness hotties: Laura
Mak, Fawnia Mondey, Jaime
Koeppe, and Jacqueline Finnan,
who organized the shoot for a new website that she will be launching later this
year. While Fawnia, Jaime, and Jacqueline were getting pedicures at the salon,
I got the chance to meet and speak briefly with actress Jessica Alba,
who is definitely one of the most beautiful women I've ever met. Ordinarily,
this would've been no big deal, but it was an interesting coincidence in that
I had photographed one of her body doubles (Taryn Dakha) earlier this year.
Not sure what's happened
with the galleries the past two days, but the Trina gallery is viewable
now. I'm going to give the system yet another whack and Shelby should
be available soon. Today's update will have some other stuff, but check back
in around 2pm EST for that.
In today's update, there
are four new clips of Canadian bodybuilder, Nadia Nardi, who is one of
the most entertaining women you'll ever meet. I'm still working on the Shelby
pics and cannot answer the question as to why they aren't showing up. Addendum:
Unable to get the Shelby pics working, I've added a new gallery of Jennifer
McVicar to tide you over for now. My apologies.
March 16, 2004
The best part about being
off the road for extended periods is that I get to update the site almost every
day. So, this morning, feel free to indulge in the latest gallery from Trina
Gillis, who has just taken over in terms of fan mail coming in. I had no
idea the response would be so tremendous, but if you guys don't stop requesting
Trina, I won't be able to debut the new women! *smile*
March 15, 2004
Check out the X-Zone for
shots of new model Taryn Dakha. What a beautiful young woman. The FemFlex
update for today is a gallery featuring super newcomer Shelby Kadyk.
You are going to love this woman...I guarantee it.
March 14, 2004
Today's news is both good
and bad. There are four great new Mary Lynne clips up today, including
one (#3) that should go immediately to the FemFlex Hall of Fame. The downside
is that this is the last of that footage and the book is now closed on Ms. Mackenzie
in terms of video. :(
There's also a new free
gallery of Wendy Lindquist.
March 13, 2004
There are three new Mary
Lynne clips up today. She made a special appearance at the HerBiceps/FemFlex
Banquet this past weekend at the Arnold and looked as lovely as ever. We only
got to speak for a moment, but with luck, I'll be able to see her again this
spring or summer, hopefully with my cameras in hand.
There are also three new
galleries featuring Jill Kolivoski, Dena Westerfield, and a free set
of Ingrid Marcum, fresh off her appearance with the U.S. National Team
at the Bobsledding World Championships in Germany.
March 12, 2004
Due to overwhelming demand,
I've started today off with a new gallery of Trina Gillis. For you X-Zone
members, there's a new gallery of Alison L'Heureux that I hope you'll
March 11, 2004
I just added a few gym
clips of Kristy Hawkins as an appetizer.
Note: Just so there's
no misunderstanding, there was no trouble at all between Mike of HerBiceps and
myself at the Arnold. We've worked together on a number of projects over the
years and more importantly, we've remained great friends the entire time. Our
joint events at this year's Arnold were highly successful, and I suspect we
might team up on other things in the future. The problems I alluded to over
the weekend concerned other in-house drama, such as our photographer being stopped
at the border and denied entry into the U.S. At any rate, the weekend's over
now, so at this point, it's all about getting this new material processed and
delivered to you guys.
March 10, 2004
Still working on getting
a bunch of new photos up, but wanted you guys to know that Rebekah Kresila
is now a part of the FemFlex Family. She comes to us courtesy of Joe from flexinfemales.com,
who devoted most of his day on Sunday to doing this shoot for us. After a year
of requests, we've finally made a video shoot happen, so you can look forward
to seeing that in the very near future. Along with the posing is a nice gym
segment as well, so I'm sure that's something you guys are going to enjoy. And
that, my friends, is just the tip of the iceberg...
Up today is a new gallery
of Alison L'Heureux.
March 9, 2004
I ended up getting about
90 minutes of sleep, but as you may have predicted, I did miss that early flight
this morning. By stroke of good fortune, however, the later flight actually
arrived before the earlier one did. I'm back home safely now, but will not be
able to begin updating the site once again until tonite. There's also a *lot*
to report on, but I'll need some time to organize all my thoughts and impressions
from the past week. Big props to Tom Knowles of tkfemuscle.com for all his assistance
this weekend, and a *very* special "Thank You" to Mari Kudla who made
the whole thing happen for us this time around. More later.
March 8, 2004
Monday the 8th, approaching
midnite, and I'm *still* in Columbus. I've been here longer than any normal
person should, and it's really (past) time for me to get back home now. Let's
hope that I'm not so tired that I end up oversleeping and missing my 6am flight.
Thanks to TK, I was able to go ahead and return the rental car tonite, so that
should save me about 15-20 minutes in the morning. Thanks for being so patient
about the lack of updates during the time I've been away, but of the 20 shoots
completed this weekend, 18 were new to FemFlex, and several of those have never
been seen before on any site, so it will have been worth the wait. All this
new material, and I had barely begun posting the stuff from the big shoot *last*
weekend up in Canada. Needless to say, we've now got a significant new photo
backlog on top of the *old* photo/video backlog we've had for quite some time.
March 7, 2004
There's been a lot of drama
in Columbus this year, but our joint event(s) with HerBiceps is now in the books.
It's hard to put all of my thoughts and impressions into words at this time,
so comments will have to wait until later. I will say I'm glad that Saturday
is now over - winners of the FVF-Arnold will be announced within another week
or so, but I do not know when the winners of the HerBiceps Physique Talent Search
will be announced. I have a very long day tomorrow - there's a little gallery
of Sheilahe Brown up now.
March 4, 2004
I'm in Columbus now, and
things are already off to a really crappy start. Let's hope things improve pretty
da*n quickly. There's a new gallery up of Leanne Babcock.
March 2, 2004
Important Service Note:
It's been brought to my attention that only two of our current DVDs - FF-04
& FF-05 - are playable on all DVD players. I am in Columbus until next Tuesday
(09 March), after which all the other DVD titles will be re-rendered in the
exact same manner as the Bonny and Jody DVDs. I apologize for the inconvience
caused by this error, but every effort will be made to correct this situation
ASAP. I estimate that all titles will be updated and available by 16 March.
Check out the new photo
gallery featuring the super-sassy Kasey Watts, the youngest IFBB pro.
March 1, 2004
This morning's update is
none other than Trina Gillis, a beautiful young bodybuilder from Alberta.
She has to be seen to be believed...and she's even more lovely in person. Check
in for another update later today.
For this evening, two new
MPEGs featuring Trina. After her pictures went up earlier, about 20 emails came
in requesting to the see the video ASAP, so the first taste is now up. Enjoy!
February 29, 2004
Happy Leap Year:
I've just this evening returned from the most grueling shoot I've ever endured
- 20 hours behind the camera with about 30 minutes worth of break time the entire
day. I had a great time and managed to get some good work out of it, so the
trip was definitely worthwhile. I'll do my best to get a gallery or two uploaded
tonite, but may have to give two updates on Monday, because I'm terribly exhausted.
Here are a couple of samples to whet your appetites:
February 27, 2004
Today there are four new
MPEGs featuring J-Mac. We *really* need to get her for a full-length
video, especially so that the leg guys can get more of what they're asking for.
lol I'll be arriving in Grande Prairie, AB sometime this evening and the first
shoot is scheduled for 10pm. If I'm not too spent afterwards, I'll attempt to
get online and post a mini-report. I've been bad about that lately - did you
guys even know I'd also shot with Jodi Miller and Sharon Kestler in addition
to Sheilahe Brown went I went to Dallas the other week? I'll attempt to do a
better job of keeping you all informed about matters like that, especially considering
that members had been requesting more workout footage for about a year. Well,
we now have more!
February 26, 2004
Today's a big day for Jennifer
McVicar fans, as there are eight new clips in the video section. And yes,
leg guys, there are some goodies for you, too. *smile*
Tomorrow, I'm heading to
rural Alberta, Canada for this weekend's shoot. I've got some great stuff lined
up for both FemFlex and the X-Zone and expect to deliver a real winner. I'll
do Friday's update late tonite and then there probably won't be one on Saturday.
I return Sunday evening and will do an update at that time.
February 25, 2004
Just one new MPEG of Sheilahe
today - there will be several new clips up tomorrow, though.
February 24, 2004
Today, there are two new
photo galleries featuring Latisha LeBourgeois and FemFlex newcomer Denise
February 23, 2004
At long last, you Jacqueline
Finnan fans have a reason to be happy once again, as she's got a new gallery
up today. There's just something about the way she looks in that one-piece cycling
outfit...oooo. Also in the photo section today is a little more of Carlene
Marshall, who shows why she's got Triple-F Status - a "FemFlex Favorite".
There are also two new MPEGs of the hard-as-nails Jody Wald, who is one
that you'll be hearing a lot about in the years to come.
February 22, 2004
Today there are new photo
galleries featuring Marika as well as two newcomers - figure superstar
Michelle Troll fresh off her win at the 2004 Ironman Figure Championships
and Dragana, a gorgeous Russian model from Victoria, BC. I also added
the gallery of Italian pro bodybuilder Claudia Bianchi to the photography
page since I'd mistakenly omitted her link when I did the Contest Central update
the other day.
February 21, 2004
There are seven new MPEGs
featuring Jennifer McVicar now up. Folks are entitled to whatever beliefs
they want, but it's *my* belief that she has one of the finest physiques the
world has ever known. Oh my.
February 20, 2004
There are four new galleries
up on the Contest Central page
featuring bodybuilding at the 2003 Jan Tana. And best of all, they're free,
so non-members may enjoy them as well.
Members of the X-Zone
will surely enjoy the new photos featuring physique superstar, Jodi Miller.
February 19, 2004
Today, there are three
new model galleries up, featuring Mari Kudla, Jordan Graham, and newcomer,
Iveta Stasenko from Russia.
February 18, 2004
Four more MPEGs of Kristy
Hawkins working out are now up.
February 17, 2004
There are three new Sheilahe
MPEGs up today, along with a new gym gallery of everyone's favorite, Jodi
Miller. Yes, this is a great day if you're a true bicep fan...enjoy.
February 15, 2004
I had a great Valentine's
shoot with Sheilahe Brown last night and she makes her Femflex debut
today with four new MPEGs in the video section. Sheilahe is one of the top heavyweight
bodybuilders in the nation and intends to come into this year's Nationals bigger
and better than ever. I certainly wish her the best and hope that she'll gain
many new fans as a result of this shoot. Show her some love!
February 14, 2004
Happy Valentine's Day:
I'm in Dallas now where it's SNOWING, but there are seven new MPEGs featuring
Kristy Hawkins in the gym up today.
February 13, 2004
Today, there are three
new galleries featuring Nicole Berg, Deb Widdis, and Laurie Bruning.
I'm heading to Texas for this weekend's shoot and I feel fairly confident that
you'll like what I've got lined up.
February 12, 2004
There are seven new MPEGs
featuring heavyweight mega-woman Linda Cancel up today. If you're a fan
of great traps, you're going to love Linda. Be sure to let me know what you
think - if there's sufficient feedback, then perhaps I'll be able to get Linda
for another shoot sometime this year.
February 10, 2004
Five more Stephanie
Collins MPEGs are now in the video section.
February 8, 2004
There are four new MPEGs
of Stephanie Collins in the video section today, including one that is
sure to take your breath away.
February 7, 2004
Today there are three new
MPEGs of everyone's favorite, Kristi the Teacher. Oh dear.
February 5, 2004
There are five more Mary
Lynne MPEGs up today, this time in her highly-requested blue outfit. There's
also a new gallery of FVF star Emma Callaghan.
February 4, 2004
There are three new Mary
Lynne Mackenzie MPEGs up today...still looking as beautiful as last time.
February 3, 2004
Today, you'll find four
new photo galleries already uploaded, including Mindi O'Brien, Teri Mooney,
Shanae Tomasevich, and Sonya McFarland. And that's just Part I...stay tuned
Two additional galleries
added: Christine Roth and Debbie Bramwell.
February 1, 2004
There are five new Mari
Kudla clips up today to mark the Super Bowl - Go Panthers!! (plus-7
for those of you who enjoy a good wager...for entertainment purposes only, of
January 31, 2004
There are four new Mari
Kudla clips up today to celebrate her recent arrival on the FemFlex
Message Boards. You're encouraged to come see what she has to say on topics
such as people's reactions to her physique in public.
January 30, 2004
PRO FITNESS EXPLOSION:
If you're a fan of professional fitness, then today is your lucky day at FemFlex,
as we've got four great new individual galleries featuring some of today's top
pros - Stacy Hylton, Angel Friend, Kim Klein, and Claire Morris-Parmley.
There are also 164 new shots from the 2003 Jan Tana Pro Fitness event at Contest
Central, and these galleries are free so that non-members may enjoy them
Do not be dismayed bodybuilding
fans, there are also new galleries of Annett Wittig and Marika that you're
sure to enjoy. *smile*
And last but not least,
be sure to check out the ultra-beautiful newcomer, Taryn Dakha in her
first FemFlex gallery. This professional figure skater was one of Canada's top
amateurs before turning pro and going on tour with "Disney on Ice". She was
last seen as the body double for Jessica Alba in the program "Dark Angel".
She has her own layout coming soon in the X-Zone as well, so we'll be seeing
a *lot* of Taryn in the weeks and months to come.
January 28, 2004
Due to the large number of requests for a combined FemFlex & X-Zone membership,
I searched out a way to provide that option at the lowest possible cost. These
joint memberships will be sold through 2checkout and will require manual activation.
I hope this new offer will appeal to those desiring membership to both sites.
Click here for more information
or to sign up.
48 hours, 16 women, a couple cups of coffee, and one giant Sex Expo added up
to one great weekend in Vancouver. This time around we've added a ski racer,
a television actress, and a professional figure skater who worked as the body
double for Jessica Alba on the show "Dark Angel". You'll also see old FemFlex
favorites such as Ocean Bloom, Sandy Vu, Carlene, Zoa, Danijela Crevar, Wendy
Lindquist. Although all these shoots were for the X-Zone, we did scoop some
great talent for the annual spring mega-shoot for FemFlex coming this April.
In today's update, you'll
find five new MPEGs of Carlene Marshall.
January 27, 2004
Today there's a new gallery
featuring coverwoman Mari Kudla, and a free mini-gallery of Marika
Johannson (it's on the "Photography" page, but non-members can view them
as well). There's also a large new gallery (over 200 images) of the middleweight
class of the 2003 NPC Nationals on the Contest page. These are just draft shots,
however, and not up to the normal standard set here at FemFlex. You can expect
a return to the good ol' days at the upcoming Ms. International competition.
January 25, 2004
There are five new MPEGs
of Mari Kudla up today - this is what you've waited so patiently for,
so I hope you will enjoy her clips. I return home in the morning, but have had
an incredible weekend here in Vancouver. I shot sixteen different women over
the two days (I'm exhausted) and while this weekend's shoot was primarily for
the X-Zone, I did discover some excellent new talent for FemFlex as well. My
annual spring shoot is always scheduled for April, but I may have to return
here before that time due to the volume of requests from prospective models.
I'll be sure to keep you informed.
January 22, 2004
There are four new MPEGs
of Carlene Marshall up today. I leave tomorrow for Vancouver, where I'll
be shooting all weekend.
January 21, 2004
There are three new model
galleries today, including old favorites Jodi Michaels and Wendy Linquist,
along with newcomer Jen C, who has a brand of lean, athletic muscularity
in her upper body that you're sure to like.
January 20, 2004
Today, a new 2-minute MPEG
of Jennifer McVicar and a gallery of Mary Lynne Mackenzie.
January 18, 2004
Five new MPEGs of Carlene
Marshall working out. Wow!
January 15, 2004
VIDEO UPDATE: After
several months of depressed creativity, I have finally gotten going with the
video editing again. The first release of the new year is a joint venture with
USA Heavyweight Bodybuilding Champion Colette Nelson, and FemFlex viewers
will be able to get an early glimpse of the first volume of her Hardcore Workout
Series. The next release of 2004 is another joint project with Colette, and
is one that is sure to excite the senses, shall we say. Cutting on this new
video has already begun and as it gets closer to completion, I'll be able to
provide an anticipated release date. Following the second Colette video will
be the long-awaited Mindi O'Brien video. There is a lot more to come
in 2004, so stay tuned and enjoy the ride! Thanks to everyone for supporting
January 14, 2004
Four new clips of Carlene
Marshall working out are up today.
January 13, 2004
I may not be a religious
man, but when I see Jennifer McVicar, I know there is a god. Check out
her new photo gallery today.
Apologies about having
the wrong file names for the clips yesterday - I fixed them last night, so if
you haven't seen them yet, you may need to simply refresh your browser.
January 12, 2004
Five new MPEGs of Mary
Lynne today, as her fans just cannot seem to get enough. She is *special*.
January 10, 2004
Six new MPEGs of Kristi
the teacher today, including one that will blow your mind. I can't say enough
about these amazing arms of hers, but I should definitely look to do a full-length
video featuring them at some point. And did I mention she's got a great smile,
January 9, 2004
Three new MPEGs of Jill
today, including a biceps measurement.
January 8, 2004
Over 200 pictures in 8
new photo galleries today, featuring 4 new models, including: Heidi Richter,
Jackie Firmino, Constance Gallo, and Sindey Harris. There are also new galleries
of Jaime Koeppe, Kim Klein, Jill Kolivoski, and Sandy Vu. Enjoy.
January 6, 2004
A *crazy* not-quite-24
hours in Vegas, but I'm back in CA safely (with tons of great stories to tell),
and I was able to get the H: drive resurrected this afternoon. So, there are
now some new Jill Kolivoski MPEGs and a gallery of Malissa Robles.
January 5, 2004
A couple of new photo galleries
today or Mari Kudla and Jordan Graham (Xena). No MPEGs today, as one of the
hard drives is a bit under the weather right now. I'll take a look at it when
I return from Vegas tomorrow. Best wishes.
January 3, 2004
Today, there are four new
MPEGs from the 2003 FVF-Arnold, and there's also a new "high contrast" photo
gallery of Jodi Miller.
January 2, 2004
In response to the 29 different emails I've received in the past 3 days concerning a recent post on the FemFlex.com site, I have not moved. FemFlex has moved, but I have not. I live in the same residence I have since, um, May. Whereas I used to do everything from my home office in Camarillo, that space was outgrown and I now have a commercial office space in the next town over from mine (Newbury Park).
There was no interruption of service for FemFlex subscribers, nor can you expect one in the near future. The broadband connection was already up-and-running prior to my moving any computers to the new location.
FemFlex.com continues to be hosted by DtV - that has not changed, nor are there any plans to change.
I appreciate everyone's
concern and I hope this answers all the questions put to me so far and any others
which may come up regarding this issue. Apologies for not emailing everyone
back individually, but I figured a couple posts here and on DtV would cover
January 1, 2004
Happy New Year.
In today's update, you'll find four new MPEGs of Jill Kolivoski, another
FemFlex exclusive. There are also new galleries of big-armed Kim Perez
and Kasey Watts. Enjoy.
December 30, 2003
FEMFLEX Has Moved!
FemFlex.com is now in its new office in Newbury Park, CA. The computers and
all data have been moved over, so we're back in business. Thanks for everyone's
patience - I predict good things for 2004. Several great shoots and trips are
already lined up, and we'll be kicking things off with a hop to the Internext
Expo in Las Vegas next week.
In today's update, you'll find video clips of none other than JILL KOLIVOSKI. Jill has been bodybuilding for quite some time, having won her class at the 1999 NPC Collegiate Nationals, and has built her biceps up to a mighty 16 inches. And she's only 24 years old - amazing, just amazing. She won the "America's Best Biceps" competition earlier this year, and in these clips, you'll see why. There are also a couple of new photo galleries - Latisha LeBourgeois and Marnie Fargo, a former Canadian star who hasn't been seen in quite some time, yet still has a very hot look.
December 27, 2003
Hope everyone is having
a great end-of-2003 celebration. My apologies about the other day - the seven
new Mindi O'Brien MPEGs were uploaded, but I failed to provide the links.
They're on the video page now, along with four new clips of Jody Wald
in contest shape as well. Enjoy.
December 24, 2003
Several new photo galleries
today, including Kristi, Anita, Angie, Linda, and newcomer Tammy Horton.
December 21, 2003
Five new MPEGs from Melissa
Babers' shoot are now up.
December 19, 2003
Today you'll see a new
gallery of Carlene Marshall, along with newcomer Nadia Nardi and
one of my favorite people in the entire world, Stephanie Worsfold, who
makes her FemFlex debut with a splash.
December 18, 2003
Seven new MPEGs from Mary
Lynne's shoot are now available. I'll have the photo update ready late this
December 16, 2003
Four more MPEGs from Marika's
shoot are up today along with a couple photo sets of Nicole Berg.
December 13, 2003
The first four MPEGs from
Marika's shoot are up today along with a photo set of Xena.
My apologies to those of
you who've been confused by the X-Zone's opening and position within
the site. The X-Zone, while affiliated with FemFlex and using many of the same
models, is a *separate* site, so your FemFlex access info will not work there.
I still hope you'll check it out!
December 12, 2003
Did I mention that I'd
shot with the lovely Marika Johansson on Wednesday? Oops, how could I
forget such an incredible shoot?! *smile* The first batch of material from that
shoot goes up today.
In what's probably bigger
news to some, however, the X-ZONE
is finally open! Enjoy. (18 and over only)
December 9, 2003
We've got five great new
Mary Lynne MPEGs up today that you're sure to enjoy.
December 8, 2003
I know a lot of you are
wondering what happened to this weekend's updates, but FemFlex had a little
surprise brewing and I didn't want to spoil it. For the first time, we brought
a model out here to California for a weekend shoot and were able to get some
of the most amazing pictures you will have seen on FemFlex (and also the X-Zone)
up to this point. This was Xena Warrior's first shoot and she did not
disappoint. Check out her free
gallery. There's also a new gallery of Ocean Bloom. I've got another
shoot scheduled for this afternoon, but will put up a small batch of video clips
and a couple of new galleries later on tonite.
December 6, 2003
A few new Mary Lynne clips
up today, showcasing her incredible upper body.
December 4, 2003
There are four new MPEGs
of Melissa Babers up now, but I'm not yet done with today's update -
check back later for more!
And just like that...Mary
Lynne Mackenzie now in the video section! (and nope, I'm not done yet...)
December 2, 2003
There's a new MPEG of Jennifer
McVicar up today, plus four new photo galleries - Annett Wittig, Debbie
Bramwell, Kim Klein, and Mary Lynne Mackenzie.
November 30, 2003
Today, four new MPEGs from
the 2003 FVF-Arnold "America's Best Biceps" competition. There are also four
new galleries featuring Jennifer McVicar, Jamie Reed, Mari Kudla, and introducing
SUNSHINE - you're gonna love her. Enjoy.
November 28, 2003
Today, six new MPEGs of
Melissa Babers, Linda Cancel, and Steph Collins. There are also three
new galleries - Jill Kolivoski, Wendy Lindquist, and Tiffany.
November 26, 2003
Today, a new MPEG of Kristi,
including one in the free area. There are also two new model galleries - Anita
Nikolich and Stephanie Collins.
November 24, 2003
Lots of great stuff in
today's update. First up, there are eight new MPEGs from the 2003 FVF-Vancouver,
including two exciting curl-offs - Roseanne vs Zoa and Mindi vs Jodi
- and then six fun posing routines. There are over 450 new FREE pics on the
Contest Central page from the recent GNC Pro and the NPC Nationals. And finally,
there are FIVE NEW MODELS on the photo page - Janet Kaufman (FREE), Kristi,
Melissa Babers, Jaime Shires, and Linda Cancel. That's right, five new models
in one day - no other site gave you that many new models today. *smile* Enjoy.
November 20, 2003
Miami! - It was
a long weekend, but this year's NPC Nationals were one of the best ever - the
first galleries are up on the contest page. As far as the FemFlex photo shoots
are concerned, we were able to photograph a total of seven new faces - Janet
Kaufman, Anita Nikolich, Melissa Babers, Jaime Shires, Linda Cancel, Stephanie
Collins, and Kristi Wills. We were also able to do a follow-up shoot with
Angie Salvagno, our first video model from almost one year ago. With
respect to when photo sets/video clips will be released, I'll let you tell me
whether you'd prefer to see maybe one new model per week (meaning that it might
be late January before some of this weekend's material appears) or whether you'd
prefer more new faces sooner rather than later (meaning that you'd see every
model sooner, but there would less material of her).
November 19, 2003
There are some new Debbie
Bramwell MPEGs up today, including one that's almost five minutes in length
at an incredible resolution of 640x480. It's a 69 MB download, however,
so even those of your with high-speed connections are looking at several minutes
of download time. Those of you with dial-up connections may wish to set it up
to download overnight. It's a long wait, I know, but the quality is certainly
worth it as you can view it at full-screen size with your 17-inch monitors.
I will be making more of these high-res clips available, but as you might expect,
they are quite a bit more costly than the standard version.
I'll begin posting my NPC
Nationals report and a lot of pics from the weekend starting later today (I'm
November 15, 2003
The requests for Mary
Lynne keep coming in, so here's another gallery. I arrived safely in Miami
on Friday afternoon, but wasn't able to make it in time for the fitness 2-piece
prejudging session. Oh well. The first of several shoots is scheduled for this
afternoon, so with luck, we'll have a sample or two by tomorrow.
November 14, 2003
I'm trying something new
today and you can give me some feedback as to whether you'd care to see more
of them. New on the video page is an ultra-high quality MPEG at an amazing
720x480 resolution. Some of you may not be able to view it, however,
as it is in MPEG-2 format. I was able to view it fine on both Windows Media
Player and RealPlayer, and at full-screen, the quality is absolutely beautiful.
It's the third Debbie Bramwell clip from yesterday, so that will allow you to
compare the quality of the two.
Also new for today is a
gallery introducing the incredibly beautiful Macey Boudreau.
November 13, 2003
Today, there are three
new MPEGs of top middlweight contender Debbie Bramwell, along with a
photo gallery from the same shoot.
I'll head out overnight
for Miami and will arrive just in time for the NPC Nationals. I've got a few
quality shoots lined up for the last major weekend of the year. In fact, this
is the last major until the Arnold in *March*. I'm going to be gone for 5 days,
but have gone ahead and uploaded a bunch of goodies to last until my return.
November 11, 2003
There's a new gallery of
USA Lightweight Champion Emery Miller up today, along with three new
MPEGs of J-Mac.
November 10, 2003
There's a new gallery of
Tiffany up today.
November 9, 2003
Today, we've got a new
gallery of Mari Kudla from her shoot on Saturday afternoon. Since I wasn't
going to the men's show, I had enough time to prep some pictures and get them
uploaded to the members section. I was also smart enough to stock up on Chik-fil-A
sandwiches (no pickle!) Saturday night, because they're closed on Sundays. My
flight is at 1pm, so it's doubtful I'll be able to get in a shoot before having
to leave for the airport. Either way, it's been a good weekend - I hope you
all enjoyed yours, too.

Christine Roth has
a new gallery up today - I hope you like her dress.
I flew out to Atlanta this
morning for the GNC Show of Strength and I'm heading over to check out their
little expo and the women's fitness/figure prejudging here shortly. I'm not
sure what to expect out of this weekend, so let's keep our collective fingers
crossed that I'll be able to discover a gem in the crowd. I get home Sunday
afternoon, so I may not be able to update anymore until then.

November 2, 2003
I've added three hot new
MPEGs of Jennifer McVicar in the video section today. Based on the emails
I'm receiving, fans just can't seem to get enough of her. There's also an introductory
gallery of the amazing Mari Kudla, fresh off her 4th-place finish in
the Figure Olympia. She's hot, folks, believe me.

Some more galleries from
the Ms. Olympia finals up today.

Parts of southern California have been ravaged by terrible wildfires this past week and thousands have lost their homes. Among those whose homes were lost are our friends Patrick & Emery Miller. Patrick has written a few articles for Femflex and his wife, Emery, won the lightweight class at the USA Championships over the summer. Ironically, both Patrick & Emery are firefighters. I was fortunate enough to be able to meet with them this past weekend and I did a shoot with Emery at that time and she looked fantastic. As I understand it, she is still on track to compete at Nationals in two weeks and is terribly strapped for cash, so any support you can lend would be greatly appreciated. Her Paypal address is firstname.lastname@example.org. I plan to organize a video of Emery and proceeds from its sale will go directly to the Miller family. I'll be sure to notify everyone once it becomes available. Thanks in advance to everyone for your support.
There are some new galleries
from the 2003 Ms. Olympia finals on the
contest page, including one featuring 8-time Ms. Olympia, Lenda Murray.
October 30, 2003
I've just put three new
MPEGs featuring Jennifer McVicar. It's taken several years to get her
in front of the video camera, but she was well worth the wait - check her out!
There are also several new galleries from the 2003 Ms. Olympia finals on the
October 29, 2003
Today, a few shots of the
Ms. Olympia finals have begun going up on the contest page. There's also a great
new gallery of Jennifer McVicar - she's back!

I had a *long* week in
Las Vegas for the Ms. Olympia, but I'm finally safe back at home. My family's
hearts and prayers are with those who've lost their lives or homes in the wake
of the devastating wildfires that are currently holding southern California
Along with exciting photo
coverage of the contest itself, there are also new pictures of Stephanie
Worsfold, Emery Miller, Kasey Watts, Sunshine, Mari Kudla, and Jennifer McVicar,
who will be making her first-ever appearance on video.
October 22, 2003
Ok, we're back in business
- four new MPEGs of Mindi are now available on the video page.
October 21, 2003
Where are the video
updates? We lost yet another camcorder to malfunction this week, so I had
to go buy another one today. The previous one was under warranty, yes, but it's
the kind of service plan where you have to send the camcorder to a repair facility
in Illinois and then twiddle your thumbs while it's fixed. With Vegas this weekend
and Atlanta in three weeks - not to mention the updates for the FemFlex members!
- there was no way I could wait. So, look for some new clips tomorrow morning.
October 20, 2003
Most of the basic stuff is now in place. Photo updates will now appear at the top of the main photo page instead of being jammed somewhere in the middle. For example, today's update is Debbie Bramwell and you'll see her link at the top of the photo page. I hope little improvements like this will enhance everyone's enjoyment of the site.
October 19, 2003
Well, as you can see, the 'News' page is completely brand new. The old page is gone, never to return. Please pardon the dust while I'm working to re-model the FemFlex house. It's my goal to improve the look and feel of the site and to make it much easier to navigate. I'll also be adding a few new sections.
FemFlex-Sport will contain pictures from the various sporting events that I attend each year. This will be primarily track & field (with an emphasis on pole vault), but is also likely to include gymnastics, tennis, swimming/diving, and more. You could say that I'm sorta getting back to my old FemSport roots.
Contest Central will contain the photos of all the contests I attend. Although I've cut back on the number of shows I'll see, you can be assured that I'll always have the majors covered, which means thousands and thousands of pictures each year.
FemFlexology will be the location of all the feature articles that are published here. Patrick Miller, husband of 2003 USA Lightweight Champ Emery Miller, will be leading the charge here. Sharp opinions are the order of the day and believe me, he's got 'em. I look forward to all the eyebrows he's sure to raise.
All the free photos and videos will soon have their own section as well. The primary photography section is going to be re-organized and the News & Information page will have a new look.
Your patience during this process is greatly appreciated and as you all know, I'm not a web designer, so any and all feedback/input is welcome while I work on all these plans.
