GMV's OLYMPIA CAMERA TEAM HISTORY - Part 2: From 2017 onwards.

(GMV Team History Part 1 - See our GMV's History at the Olympia from 1971, & our Camera Team in USA from 1999 to 2016.) .


2017 Olympia
Team of 2 - Wayne Gallasch and Phil Carman as cameramen.
Due to filming the new event the NPC Amateur Olympia on the Thursday, we were not able to do our usual interviews at “Meet the Olympians”.
Our GMV team of 2 is pictured below: L to R - Wayne and Phil.
Wayne's camera feed went to the big iMag screens on either side of the Show Room stage, and the Expo stage on Friday and Saturday.

Historical Notes:
We had the pleasure of filming the first ever Las Vegas NPC Amateur Olympia competition for men and women. I did interviews with John Corlett and Phil Carman for my 50 Years doco.
Had a poolside shoot at the Orleans with USA’s Aaron Reed, said to be the world’s tallest top-competitor male bodybuilder. He is 6'7" (200.5cm).
This was the last Olympia using our much loved JVC HD video camera purchased in 2015. (Pictured below). Time to upgrade the technology ready for 2018.
Phil used our ever reliable Canon HD video camera for the closeup stage work.

I visited long-time former team member Dr Dick Rossan for a final time at his Las Vegas home. He passed away March 19th, 2018. He was 6 weeks short of his 90th birthday. He will be greatly missed.
You can see our team photo including Dick in his final year with GMV, at the 2011 Olympia. (Click on the link to GMV Olympia History Part 1, and then scroll down.)

2018 Olympia

Team of 2 - Wayne Gallasch cameraman and Gennaro Ferra as my hard working photographer and assistant. This was my first ever all Aussie team, and my 20th year doing the Olympia, 1999 to 2018.

Again in part due to filming the second year of the two-day NPC Amateur Olympia on Wednesday and Thursday, we were not able to attend the “Meet the Olympians”. Plus my usual interviewer and second cameraman Phil Carman was absent this year due to illness.

Our GMV team of 2 is pictured below: R to L - Wayne and Gennaro. Gennaro is a former Mr. Australia now living in NYC and working as a personal trainer.

My camera feed went to the big iMag screens on either side of the Show Room stage for the Amateur Olympia, and the Expo stage on Friday and Saturday.

Historical Notes:
I had a poolside shoot at the Orleans with the Overall Winner of the Amateur Olympia Women's Physique, Lina Varela of Colombia. Now a new Professional, she is based in the Dominican Republic.

Camera Gear:
This was the first Olympia using my brand new Blackmagic URSA Broadcast video camera. Time to upgrade to the latest 4K technology.
In the Pump Room and backstage interviews I used my ever reliable Canon HD video camera, and also the Olympus E-M1 Mark II, shooting in 4K.

My Interviews:
Dan Solomon, Mr O Athletes’ Meeting – Wednesday September 12th 
Shawn Ray, backstage Orleans Arena – Saturday September 15th
Ed Connors, Orleans Hotel – Sunday September 16th

2019 Olympia.
The GMV Camera Team was back to 3 guys again this year. Wayne Gallasch and Phil Carman as cameramen, and David Wellings as photographer and assistant cameraman. This was my first ever fellow South Australian on my Olympia team. Welcome David, and welcome back Phil who was away last year.

Once again we were busy in the Showroom filming the NPC Amateur Olympia on Wednesday and Thursday. Thursday night it was Phil and I at Meet the Olympians.for several interviews.

Our GMV team of 3 is pictured below: L to R - Phil, Wayne and David at our camera platform for the Expo stage.
My camera feed went to the big iMag screens on either side of the Show Room stage for the Amateur Olympia, and for a first time our two camera feeds went to the big screens at the Expo stage on Friday and Saturday.

Historical Note:
This was the first Olympia under Dan Solomon, new Chief Olympia Officer at American Media, Inc. at Mr. Olympia LLC. It was the best run Olympia that I have so far taken part in.

Camera Gear:
The Blackmagic URSA Broadcast was my main video camera. Phil was on the Canon HD 2nd video camera, and I also used the Olympus E-M1 Mark II, shooting in 4K for interviews and the Pump Room.

Interviews:
2019 Olympia Interviews by Phil Carman were on Thursday September 12th.
They were Angelica Teixeira and Andre Ferguson.

Photo Shoots:
Dave Wellings had Sunday photo shoots with Maureen Blanquisco and Marcia Goncalves.
