Melissa invited me to come to her gym, Magnum Total Fitness, to photograph the end of their 12 week boot camp. Magnum Total Fitness is in Kincardine, a great little town on Lake Huron. I also got to re-connect with one of my former work placement students, Justin, who assisted me that day. Setup time was 7 AM and the participants for the day were already starting hair and makeup. We got setup and were shooting just after 8 AM. We photographed in the gym and in the makeshift studio we setup all day. We wrapped up photographing just before 6 and were cleaned up and out by 7.
During the day I got to photograph a lot of genres. Fitness obviously, maternity, family images, group pictures and even a motorcycle. It challenging but a lot of fun. I met a lot of really terrific people on all different points on their fitness journey, it was nice to interact with them all. We shot about 1500 pictures on the day between all of the participants and the groups.
The pictures below are not retouched, the theme of the shoot was body positivity and we wanted to portray people as they are.
