Venice Beach Training

Last month I headed off to LA for a couple days for some shoots, some meetings and to get a little sun. I connected up with Kelli who is a model for Sports and Lifestyle Unlimited and we planned out a sunrise training shoot at Venice Beach. We met up a bit before sunrise and scouted out a couple locations that we thought would work best. It ended up being  a bit more of a running shoot than training but I’m not complaining at all! The light was beautiful and the beach was deserted except for a couple groups of

Reebok ZQuick Campaign

Last summer I was contacted by a local agency to work on a project for Reebok. It’s been a long wait but I’m incredibly excited to finally be able to share this project with all of you! The basic concept for the shoot was that these two are out for a run at dusk in a city and taking advantage of the shoes that were made to plant and cut and dodge obstacles. In order to make that vision happen, we had to work some pretty odd hours on the project. The shoot started at around 5:00 PM. My crew and

Khino & Kieron | Men’s Training

Again, continuing to get caught up one some retouching from the summer here’s a new set of Men’s Training images. As I’ve been working through these images it’s making me miss the longer days of summer. Fall is my favorite time of year but there’s something really nice about getting up earlier than most for a 5:30am shoot to take advantage of the great morning light. This set of images was really trying to show off some of the Nike Training attire but also the SKLZ training equipment. I basically had Khino and Kieron go through a workout using the

Rajiv | Men’s Training

Following up on last weeks post I thought it would be good to share some images from a recent men’s training shoot. This one was a bit challenging just in the fact that it was incredibly hot out but we were able to use it to our advantage. Again, much like last week, I felt very much like a training putting Rajiv through a workout and just capturing images as we went. Within about 5 minutes of warming up he had a good sweat going as the temperature was near 100 degrees. It definitely helped pull off the authenticity that he’d been

Elsa & Danielle | Women’s Training

Trying to keep the streak going I have some more new images for you all. A couple weeks ago I connected with a couple models I’ve worked with in the past to do a Women’s Training shoot. We met up bright and early to catch the morning light and basically ran them through a quick workout. In some ways, I felt like a personal trainer running them through different exercises to get their hearts pumping. I’ll stick to my career as a photographer but it’s good to know that I have something to fall back on if I need to!

Trail Running – Rowena Crest

In the last blog post I got you all caught up on what’s been going on the last couple of months. But, now that I’m back in Portland it’s time to get back to the grind! Last week I had the opportunity to work on two pretty cool projects. The first that I’m going to release was a trail running shoot in the Columbia River Gorge. The other will be released next week and I’m really excited for you all to see the final images! You just have to be a little patient… These images were taken out at Rowena
