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.) .
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.
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.)
