"I have been photographing contestants at cheerleading and bodybuilding competitions for many years. I have always been interested in emotional moments behind the scenes, where the impatience and vulnerability of the participants are manifested, and this says a lot about the personality of these people," says the photographer.

"The contestants love the attention, they are there to perform and to be watched, so the filming only added to the atmosphere," he says.

"I always like to appear on the spot without preliminary ideas and shoot what I see. I was very impressed with how the ladies behaved on stage, and I wanted them to turn out great."
