The bold and the beautiful


This post is dedicated to a dear friend of mine names Mike Velasco who is well-deserving of the title “Bold”.

Mike and I became friends in University through our mutual friend and we connected right away. He is a sincere and motivated person who will stay loyal to you and will do just about anything for his friends so long as it doesn’t jeopardize himself. He knows who to surround himself with and makes an effort not to get caught up in the whirl wind that we call life. His level head has a contagious effect and being around him makes you feel motivated and at ease.

Mike is an avid bodybuilder and trainer and spends a majority of time in the gym training his friends or training for himself. He was my trainer for an entire summer and I have never felt so fit even though I have spent a majority of my life being active. He motivates you with his positive nature. Meaning ┬áhe doesn’t push you to your breaking point, he motivates you to get there.

This shoot was done a little while ago with Mike and we owe his brother Jude credit for his amazing photography and patience when we spent a lot of time goofing off. Thank you Jude for your great work, and thank you Mike for your friendship! See you soon!
