John Terilli - "Mr Universe"

My wife Liliya recently filmed a feature film with John Terilli. For those of you that aren't in the know, John Terilli is one of Australia's most successful bodybuilders. In 1994 Terilli was the first Australian to win the Mr Universe competition, which is an amazing feat and now the "Mr Universe" tagline will stick to him forever.
Since then Terilli has been running the Broadway gym, and his acting career is taking off with his second feature film about to commence production.
The brief on this job was to shoot a front cover for a print calendar on star signs that will be featuring some of my other images. John who is a star and about to be a bigger star is watering his star Garden.
All of the surrounding houses had curious onlookers peeking from behind their curtains, in what they discovered was not your typical Saturday morning sight.

Thanks to the following people:
John Terilli, Kerryl Bullen (Stylist), Lisey Ruth Curtis (Hair & Make-up), Julian May (Assistant & Behind the scenes shooter) & to Bruce Allan who helped me find the location
