WINNIPEG FITNESS PHOTOGRAPHER
My studio is excited to announce that we are now offering Fitness Photography with this Winnipeg Fitness Photographer posting. This session features a Manitoba Bodybuilder who became our first fitness client. He chose my studio based on his appreciation of our other photographic images. Fitness sessions are of course for both Men and Women and I offer a wide range of styles.
This Winnipeg Fitness Photographer session was shot entirely with a black background.
This is probably the most common studio background used, as it allows the subject to really “pop” in their image.
We will be showcasing other backgrounds in future sessions such as, White, Grey, Muslin, and some cool Environmental backgrounds.
Many thanks to Eddie Stackhouse, who is the fitness model/client that is featured in this posting.
Eddie is currently training for an upcoming Bodybuilding Contest that will be occurring in Winnipeg near the end of January.
For anyone booking a Fitness Session, you will have the option of selecting either colour or B&W edits (or both).
I personally lean towards the B&W edits for this style of photography, as I find the muscle tones really show up well.
This particular Winnipeg Fitness Photographer posting was photographed entirely in my studio, however other locations are also possible.
This would include outdoor scenes, as well as any training facilities.
Eddie brought a female model to his session in order to add another dimension to his shoot.
He selected a fabulous model, namely “Matraisa” who you can find on FB and hire for professional shoots.
With having a female model in the image, it drastically changes how the photo is edited.
I wanted Eddie to have lots of detail to show the bodybuilder muscle tone, but I also wanted the woman to have a more feminine skin tone.
In this particular image I also added a Fog Effect to give it some cool atmosphere.
Eddie wanted the male/female portion of this Winnipeg Fitness Photographer Session to have both of them in dynamic poses.
Each person was showcasing their own form, yet the main focus was on Eddie and his bodybuilder physique.
Lighting for a Bodybuilding Shoot, can be quite varied, depending on what you are going for.
For a male subject, we decided upon harsh lighting that “raked” across his body to really accentuate the muscles.
The great thing about photographing a bodybuilder, is they know how to pose for muscle display.
Eddie posed in a stance that he desired, and then I tweaked it to make it the best possible look.
As a Winnipeg Fitness Photographer, part of my job is not only to have the right lighting. It’s also to assist in getting the best possible pose.
All of my Fitness Sessions come with FREE Consultations in order to cover every important detail.
This would include potential poses; backgrounds; lighting; wardrobe; fitness props; and more.
One important point I want to make as a Winnipeg Fitness Photographer, is that I have been involved in fitness weight training for about 40 years.
I am very familiar with the “mindset” of a bodybuilder/athlete, as well as what they have gone through to achieve their fitness.
That means I can put myself in the client’s “shoes” and add important constructive suggestions to make the session a success.
I am also very familiar with all the personal exercise equipment and gym equipment.
If the photo shoot was in an actual gym, I would be knowledgable on the function of each piece of equipment and how to best photograph a person using it.
As a change of pace for this Winnipeg Fitness photographer shoot, I photographed Eddie in a more formal portrait background and lighting.
With my skill set in portrait photography, I can offer every client both some intense fitness shots, as well as some cool portraits.
Eddie had some dressy form-fitting clothing, which showcased his bodybuilding form, but the portrait style emphasized a more relaxed attitude.
There are many other styles that can be showcased in a Fitness shoot.
For example, this could include a combination of regular clothing but with a more fitness attitude. Such as wearing a nice jacket, but having it open to show off the “abs”.
I titled this posting as Winnipeg Fitness Photographer, but I am also a Manitoba Fitness Photographer.
I offer my professional services to the Winnipeg and Steinbach areas, as well as the surrounding SE Manitoba area.
If a client has access to a gym or special location, I can also travel to that locale with my professional grade equipment.
Fitness sessions can include any Athletic endeavour. Includes Sports and other Training methods, such as Running, or even Yoga.
I have created some very Cool HOCKEY PORTRAITS in previous sessions.
Check out these links from my blog. They will give you an idea of the interesting dynamic portraits that can be done with a sports theme.
There is even a Hockey Themed Boudoir Session as well.
