I’ve been working with a number of fitness competitors from around Atlantic Canada over the last year or two and must say, other than the obligatory spray tans – Sorry! I had to say it! LOL! – I absolutely love shooting with these incredible competitors.
All joking aside, my good friend Paul Girvan, who is the top fitness photographer in the region, has been putting my services to work behind the scenes at many fitness competitions in NB, PE and NS as my technical skills sorting and tagging hundreds or thousands of images in a very short time has saved him days of work. This comes from my years as staff photographer for two regional stock car racing series. I can process 3000 photos from a single night at the race track in only a couple of hours, so a fitness competition is a walk in the park. 😉
So, while attending the competitions, I’ve met many competitors who have chosen to shoot with us. The great thing about the competitors, unlike many of our traditional clients, is that they tend to love having their photos published online, which helps some secure sponsorship and others support their current sponsors. Who knew fitness was such an expensive activity?!?!
Paul introduced me to Tiffany a little over a year ago. We came up with simple idea for a session and off we went. I’ve been shooting a lot with mirrors and love incorporating them into my shoots. This one incorporated a single free standing floor mirror and we ended up calling the session Tiffany’s Closet as a play on Victoria’s Secret.
The set ended up sitting on my hard drive for a little while as the very next day after our shoot, my grandson Barrett was born! So although it did take a little longer than usual for me to complete the edits from the set and to find a place for publication, I can say I’m very happy with the home we eventually found.
Malvie is a beautiful fashion based magazine based in France and publish quarterly special editions. I saw the first Fine Art Nude and Boudoir issue and was very impressed with the quality of work and overall look of the magazine and sent them some samples of our session and they loved them. Long story short, Malvie’s Nude Boudoir Edition # 2 was released last week and Tiffany’s session was well featured in a 6 page spread featuring 10 images along with some incredible photography from all around the world. We’re honored to be included with such fantastic artists! Check out the magazine and pick up your own digital or print copy at www.malviemag.com
