Sam Oloyede

About This Project

Sam Oloyede is an engineer and a powerlifter. It was a beautiful September day in Ottawa when we visited this location. I had scouted out the spot years before on another trip to the nation’s capital. Ottawa is so green and lush that I had to incorporate some of that into this shoot. Sam is an incredibly nice guy, but scared a young man passing by. While in full bicep flex pose with his game-face on, a young man looking at his cellphone walked around the corner and didn’t notice Sam until he was inches in front of him – a hilarious moment from a wonderful shoot.
