Behind the Scenes: Lou gets a shot of Michelle Trimble’s awesome back during a new shoot at NPC Masters Nationals.
We’ve got 6 brand new shoots coming from the Masters Nationals held this past weekend in Pittsburgh, Pa. This was our first time covering the popular annual pro qualifier — officially called the NPC Teen, Collegiate and Masters Nationals — that draws hundreds of competitors each year and actually takes place at the same venue as the North Americans. Five new KrivsStudio models and one encore with more pictures and info to come as updates come to the site.

Danyelle Mastarone – Danyelle first appeared on the site back in 2013 when the Pittsburgh native and standout figure shortie competed at North Americans. Since then, the 37-year-old added mom to a resume that already includes cheerleader, personal trainer and prep coach. The Tiny But Mighty One made first call outs and finished sixth in class A.
Heidi Worrell-Osborne – Mighty Heidi makes her debut on the studio with video that promises to have a memorable spin to it so stay tuned. The 39-year-old physique competitor from Oakland, Calif. is owner and coach of Iron Dream Warriors and finished fifth in her class.
Carmen Lonborg – This pretty brunette figure competitor out of Anchorage, Alaska first started competing in 2013 and has made tremendous strides. Although she missed the top ten in what was a stacked class, this was only Carmen’s first national level show and she’s eager to try again.

Lynn Blachman Caron – Bodybuilding is definitely a family affair in the case of Jersey girl Lynn, who competed along with her husband at the show. At 43, Lynn feels like she’s in the best shape of her life and proved it with a solid fourth place showing in the 40 and over physique B class. She’s looking sliced and vascular during her shoot outside in Station Square, a popular shopping and entertainment district in Pittsburgh. Watch for a cameo appearance from Sammy the Parrott.
Melanie Michelle Trimble – Melanie made the top ten at last year’s NPC USAs and is no stranger to the national level stage. The 44-year-old mom of two was even better this time, finishing fourth in a competitive 35 and over figure E class. A long, athletic California girl with a sporty look.
Jammie Vinton – Last we have Jammie, who claimed seventh in the 35 and over physique C class. The Omaha, Neb. native got off to a splendid start when she began competing two years ago, winning her class and the physique overall title at the 2014 Badger State Championships in her first ever show.
