My day at the 2018 Fit Expo in San Diego, CA

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. Have a great day everyone.

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!  

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.
