Seth Lowe for GX Magazine

Seth Lowe recently photographed Illinois Staff Sergeant Kellye Brestan for GX Magazine. For this shoot, they wanted to show the model's physique and strength in fun and positive way, as well as some of the style of lifting that she does for training, as it is pretty different than most weight lifting routines. Seth says "There are often a lot preconceived ideas and stereotypes about body builders, especially at the level Kellye is at, and I really just wanted to show her as a really healthy, strong, and beautiful woman, not just a gym nut who has no personality or life".  After finishing up a personal project last summer focused on body building it was really fun to see that leading to real world assignments.
