MY LATEST PHOTOSHOOT WITH FITNESS MODELS ANGELIQUE BOYDSTON AND SAMANTHA LEMUS

Happy Tuesday everyone!  I wanted to share my photoshoot from last month with fitness models Angelique Boydston and Samantha Lemus. It was my second photoshoot with the both of them and we shot at Self Made gym in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. We shot at night with the Westcott Icelights. I wanted to practice using continuous lighting since we had that much time to shoot. I felt the ice lights would be faster and efficient to get the project done. We captured great photos highlighting their physiques in a few fitness outfits. They were both fun to work with again. Can't wait to show some edited pics from this shoot soon. Have a great day.

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!

MY PHOTOSHOOT WITH FITMOM SAMANTHA SAGE

Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a nice weekend! I worked again with the lovely fit mom Samantha Sage and her beautiful son Levi this past Saturday. It was my third time working with Samantha since our first one from the early summer. We shot near the Torrey Pines, CA area, a few miles away from Solana Beach, CA. We captured beautiful photos of the both of them working out and hiking together. I shot their morning together till the rain started since it was overcast weather that morning. We took a risk on shooting due to the weather conditions. I did pack light for this shoot due to the weather conditions and still shot great photos and some video content of them together. It was fun hanging out with the both of them again and captured some good stuff. Can't wait to show some edited content from this shoot soon. Have a great week!
