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!

Happy Monday everyone!  I wanted to share my quick visit from last Saturday at the Fit Expo in San Diego, CA. This expo is like the others that are held at vast areas of the US and the biggest ones is usually in Los Angeles in the beginning of the year. This was the first one that was held in sunny San Diego at their convention center. It was a nice experience at this one which had a few nice booths including Legendary Foods, Monster Energy, Zevia, supplements, clothing brands and much more. I saw a few people including fit mom Samantha Sage and fitness model Victoria Fit whom I met for the first time. Great seeing them both. I also received samples as well. Some photos are attached.

Photoshoot with Fitness Writer Dr. Stacey Naito

Happy Friday! Sorry for the absence for a short while.  I am back though. I wanted to share my recent photoshoot with the amazing Dr. Stacey Naito. It was my second time working with Stacey since our first one from last summer for the BFW magazine. We shot at Corriganville Park in the Simi Valley, CA area.

Most of the photos were photographed with the natural light and some flash since we started shooting in the evening. It was a fun photoshoot and was great catching up with Stacey since I last saw her. Can't wait to show some edited pics from this shoot soon.  Have a great weekend.
