PHOTOS WITH CERTIFIED PERSONAL TRAINER MARISSA REMY

Happy Wednesday everyone! Hope all of you are having a great week so far. I am showcasing a new slideshow with fitness model and certified personal trainer Marissa Remy from photoshoots we did this past year. In one of the photoshoots, she was preparing for a fitness competition on the east coast and her physique looked flawless for the stage. They were all photographed in the morning before the sun arrived! Hope you like the photography work using natural light. Thanks.

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 photoshoot with IFBB Bikini Pro and sponsored athlete Jennifer Dawn

Happy Thursday everyone!  I wanted to share my recent photoshoot from last weekend with IFBB Bikini Pro, fitness model and sponsored athlete Jennifer Dawn. It was my first time photographing her and we shot at Pacific Beach in San Diego, CA area in the morning near the pier. We captured beautiful photos with her physique in a variety of outfits including swimsuit and fashion. Majority of the photos were shot with a single speedlight & flash bracket and natural light. It was a fun photoshoot and was great shooting with Jenn. We worked together around 6 years ago for a fitness magazine on a spotlight feature when I designed her layout single page feature. She was fun to work with and it was great seeing her again. Can't wait to show some edited pics from this shoot soon.  Have a great day people!
