Sandile | Fitness photography workshop

Posted by on 2017/12/11 in Fitness | 0 comments

After I was a speaker at the Photo & Film expo in 2016 I got a request to present a fitness photography workshop for someone who attended my talk.  After my initial model cancelled the evening before the workshop I was in a rush to get someone else on short notice and ended up asking one of my favourite young bodybuilders at our gym. He has never modelled before, which add a bit of a challenge for the person who I present the workshop too (but in a good way 🙂 ) and he said he was in shape enough to really pull this off for me. I was desperate and he just had to make this work although I promised that I’ll guide him.  Looking at these…I think we did quite well and he got amazing images out of this shoot.

Stephanie was the runner-up of a Monique-fit challenge and booked me for her shoot, because she really wanted to show what she worked so hard for. But never did I realise that this would be the beginning of a special journey I am going to walk with this amazing young lady.  Not only was her mom busy fighting cancer, which she won by the way, she also ended up being one of my models for my Pancer Cancer 2017 shoots.

Isn’t she just so beautiful – inside out beautiful?

Another of my USN Face of Fitness Competition entries I have done for the beautiful Bernice. She came well prepared for the ideas she had and the photos she wanted. It shows.

Her natural make-up was done by Image Alchemy.

I have been blessed to have done a few shoots for some of the ladies who have entered the USN Face of Fitness competition for this year.  Debbie was not exception and I loved what we got from her shoot.

Her natural make-up was done by Cosmetiek.

Harrison | Fitness portfolio

Harrison is a natural bodybuilder and I think it was quite cool that he wanted to take his photos in a natural environment complimenting all the months of hard work he has invested into training and healthy eating.  We met at dawn one very cold, rather freezing, morning at Modderfontein Nature reserve and I was inspired with his vision to inspire and be a role model for youngsters in this highly popular industry.

I must add that when I meet these athletes and by the way they deal with depletion, being hungry and the cold, you learn quickly what kind of person he or she is.  Harrison was so relaxed and full of energy, despite the cold, that I loved every second of having him in front of my camera.  He had to run up and down and do a few push ups to keep warm, never complaining, but was a star while shooting.

“And though she be but little, she is fierce.” ~ Shakespeare

I think Shakespeare wrote this specially for women like Véronique!  Not only for how she trains, her commitment and hard work, but we did her shoot on almost the coldest day in June and it was freezing!  She never complained, although she had goosebumps the whole time and froze her pretty booty off, and totally rocked her shoot. 

Being one of those rare beauties with a golden heart, she made shooting in the cold so worth it.

Her make-up was done by her amazing friend, Logan, who is also my Shade Fourty Nine.
