I was contacted recently by a friend of a friend who owns a gym to come and shoot some portraits of one the girls he’s been spending time personal training. We swapped messages and images to gain a good idea of what we were after and took it from there. I had no direct contact from our model as Dave had a good idea of what he was from a styling perspective.


Unfortunately I was held up by traffic on the way, a usual hour long drive took twice as long as expected, so got cracking as soon as I arrived. Katie was looking great from the off, we started with some poses in office attire in a small massage room in the gym. This was challenging as the space was so small, we still managed to get some awesome images though.

We moved outside to make the most of the roof space at the gym and shot against the neighbors brick wall which gave a great backdrop.


Whilst outside I wanted to capture Katies long legs in a bit of a catalogue pose, I think this was all natural light, possibly with a fill flash and brolly camera left.

There’s plenty more to come and I will be posting later in the week.
