PHOTOS WITH FITNESS UNLIMITED GYM AT THE 2019 PASADENA TRIATHLON

Happy Saturday everyone! Can’t believe we are about to approach April in a matter of almost 1 day. I wanted to share some photos I shot with a local gym called Fitness Unlimited shot this month. Some of their gym members participated in the 2019 Pasadena Triathlon and I have attached a few photos from this event. It was fun shooting this and got to work with another photographer who captured pictures for the ones I couldn’t get. Each of the members earned a metal and all of them had a great time. Weather was cloudy when we arrived around 7am and the sun finally appeared close to 10am. It was a fun overall event. I attached a few photos from the event below.

I am an event photographer and I am available to photograph your upcoming event for both indoor and outdoors. Contact me today at joe@joemikoli.com for more information and rates. Samples of my event work can be viewed at https://www.joemikoli.com/photo-work#/eventphotos . Thank you!

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.

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 weekend at the 2018 Fitposium conference

Wow, looking back at last weekend was pretty awesome! I had a great time in the state of Arizona for the first time to take part of the Fitposium 2018 conference. I enjoyed my time at this conference. It focused on people working or continuing working on their brands within the fitness industry for fitness entrepreneurs. For myself, I was able to get my portfolio reviewed by editors of larger fitness magazines such as Strong Fitness, Fitness magazine from Australia and Oxygen. All of them liked my fitness photography work which made my day.  The conference itself was great with amazing speakers whom I saw on Saturday. I received many tips from them throughout their presentations which benefited my brand. I also saw familiar faces whom I worked with in the past and met new faces as well. It was a great weekend for myself!! On a last note, I want to thank again James Patrick, the founder of Fitposium reaching out to me on this and the conference really benefited me on different levels. Thank you.
