MY LATEST PHOTOSHOOT WITH FITMOM SAMANTHA SAGE

Happy Monday!

Hope everyone is having a great week so far! I wanted to share a recent photoshoot I did with fit mom Samantha Sage in the San Diego area. We photographed fitness and fashion attire at a beach in the Encinitas area. The photos turned out great and it is always a pleasure working with her.

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.

Photoshoot with ProSupps sponsored athlete Cristina Sawh

Happy Thursday! Sorry, I have been lagging on my blog. Last weekend was awesome with few photoshoots I did with a few fitness models in the San Diego area including the amazing Prosupps sponsored athlete Cristina Sawh. We shot at the beautiful Windesea beach in the afternoon. The weather was warm and beautiful but with high tides with large amounts of people.  However,  we managed to capture a great amount of beautiful photos showcasing her physique in and out of the water with both dress and swimwear. She is competing in an NPC fitness competition this weekend in San Diego. For the photoshoot, I used both my 50mm lens for majority of the shots and last portion of the shoot with my 80-200 so I can zoom in on the shots so my equipment won't get wet since Cristina was in the water.  We both survived the shoot and came home with great photos from this shoot.  It was a few months in the making. Thank you Cristina. It was fun.
