The fit physique 🏋 You train, you bust your guts,

The fit physique 🏋
You train, you bust your guts, the pain, the blisters, the bruises & injuries. Personal bests, victories either short or long – of mind & body. It’s the challenge. It’s the mindset.

Fitness Modelling Test Shoot

At a coffee catchup with an old marketing guru friend she suggested I put together a proposal to market to gyms and gym junkies as potential photography customers.

With all marketing ideas I tend to test things before I go out and promote so that I get a better feel for the nuiances and challenges of the shooting style – ie what works and doesn’t.  

The Fitness Test Shoot   

Colleen worked years ago for me when I managed a Pub – geez that was about 15 years ago now and she was just 18 and out of school.  Today she owns and managed a gym down Cronulla (with Kimmy S. – another girl who used to work for me).  She’s seriously fit!

Shoot Day

We organise a day that works for us both – orgininally I wanted to shoot out doors but on the day we just broke a six year record for rain in Sydney.  I then chose an old shed to help create the raw, gritty element of what I think fitness is really all about – this internal / external “show” of mind and body.  

Also, creatively reinforce the black and whites contrasts.

Challenges

The greatest challenge with every shoot is getting the person very comfortable and relaxed in front of the camera as most non professional talent are very self consious when the lens is focused on us.     

What photos people “Like” is very subjective – particularly when the photos are of themselve.  I’m reminded of the latest Dove commercial where the artist sketches unseen a persons description of themselve, then has a stranger describes and then compares the two sketches.
