I met Omran during a visit to Liverpool in October. I was there for the annual Digital Splash at the Exhibition Centre and was killing some time before my coach back to London. Seeing me taking shots of the local architecture Omran approached me demanding that I took some pictures of him.
It was immediately clear that Omran was no stranger to the camera, he'd just finished competing in the IFBB Diamond Cup at the Echo Arena. When asked if he'd be happy to do a photo shoot in London Omran was game for it, and as if by good fortune he had an upcoming visit to the capital planned. This is what happened when we got together.
