VETERAN BROTHER PODCAST

Happy Thursday!

I’m starting to shatter ceilings with the art of storytelling. I want to share an audio interview i did last week with Wilson Feliz of the Veteran Brother podcast for his Episode #14. I know some of you may be interested in knowing more about me and my creative background, please take a listen anywhere you are at. The links are below for your listening pleasure!

It is my first time being in a solo interview on sharing my story of my success in the creative arts. Majority of this interview is solely based on my work within the graphic arts and photography in the health and fitness industry. Some of the areas that were discussed include my creative background, how I got started in the health and fitness industry as a graphic designer leading to becoming a photographer in the same industry, I share some my own thoughts in certain areas of both design and photography, some highlights in my creative career and much more. I hope you like what you heard in this interview. I want to thank again Wilson for giving me the opportunity of being interviewed on his podcast and sharing my story.

I also want to mention and thank James Silvas of “Be That 1% , Lisa Simone Richards, James Patrick, founder of Fitposium and his book, “Fit Business Guide” for their guidance to eliminate the fear, taking the necessary action steps and get out there to show who you are in your brand. I am looking forward to more podcast interviews in the future.

Lastly, reflecting back on the beginning of my journey on my success within the health & fitness industry as a creative talent, I am very humbled and i thank you all for being a part of it. Please let me know your thoughts if you have any on my first interview and yes i was nervous! lol

MY.O SWIMWEAR PHOTOSHOOT

Happy Wednesday! Reflecting upon a recent photoshoot I shot last weekend with personal trainer Nicole Zapoli and others for a swimwear line called MY.O Swimwear. I met Nicole last spring of 2017 during a event for Jeanette Ortega for her new book, “The little Black Book of Fitness” where she one of the co-authors for it. We remained in touch online since we met in the spring. It was our first photoshoot and we shot in the area of Carlsbad, CA at the New Village Arts theatre in the San Diego area. We shot in the mid afternoon using all natural light and some flash for fill for both indoors and outdoors. I used my Nikon d750 with my 28-300 lenNik with my Flashpoint Evolv 200 for fill flash. We captured overall nice photos with the fellow models with the swimsuits in a variety of spots around the location we were at including a railroad station. They were all fun to work with. I attached a few photos from the this event. Looking forward to doing it again!
