The Alberta Bodybuilding Association is pleased to offer our athletes the very best in photography and videography coverage at all of our sanctioned events. We are proud to have top industry photographer David Ford as our Official ABBA Photographer. David has exclusive rights to all ABBA events. David's team often arranges back stage photography as well. In addition to David's services, we are excited to have Drew Kenworthy and his team shooting the exclusive video at our three June events. Drew has been working with the ABBA for several years and continuously provides our athletes with a great product.


David Ford Photography


David Ford is a world-renowned photographer and we are lucky to have him as ABBA's official photographer since 2001.   David is the Director of Photography with Status Fitness Magazine and has featured many ABBA athletes in the industry leading publication. David provides all images to the ABBA for promotion and media use which, since 2011, has included Muscle Insider magazine.

David sits front and center to capture your stage moments!  You will receive a minimum of 10 but in most cases up to or over 50 photographs from both the morning and night shows including your mandatories, comparisons, and routine (if applicable).  Evening show’s photographs will include the trophy and award presentations where applicable.

All photographs will contain the David Ford and ABBA Logo. This provides strong media credibility and also allows the price to be kept lower than would be charged without. Most importantly, it simplifies the usage of the photos for you. With the logos, you do not need any written release from David Ford to use the photos publicly i.e. internet, social media, print etc.

You will receive your photographs by email within a reasonable time after the show.  The link will come from where you will download them directly onto your own computer to share your achievements with family and friends. Please note that the photo link expires after 14 days.
