Paul Buceta is the Chief Photographer for STRONG Fitness Magazine. His vision for the Magazine and STRONGCAMP are symbiotic. The message is always clear and beyond reproach. Paul attends all the STRONGCAMPS photographing the participants for future features, and publications of STRONG Fitness Magazine. That being said, he has found some wonderful people at many of the camps and quite a few of them have had the pleasure of being featured in spreads within the magazine. The images taken at STRONGCAMP are released to all participants (After the corresponding issue is released).
