Photo Shoot with April - Teaser and BTS

International model April Hutchinson and I have been wanting to shoot again for a while and finally found the time last night. We did a couple of quick set, because when you work with a good model you only need a short time. Including her fight April and I have probably shot together 7 or 8 times now. Here’s a quick edit from last night and some behind the scenes pictures.

DO Boxing Show - Behind the Scenes at our Promo Shoot

I had my good friend Dameon Okposio come into studio to update his head shots.

Dameon created a behind the scenes video of the shoot for his YouTube show: DO Boxing Show.

You can always use a good head shot for business. Dameon does a lot of seminars and speaking engagements so the pictures really support him. In addition Dameon writes for and publishes Below the Belt Magazine. We did some basic portrait work with Dameon in his unique shirts and then went on the head shots.

Fitness Shoot with Eden at FlexPlex

I had a great shoot Saturday morning. Women's fitness with Eden at FlexPlex. She was great and hit all of her exercises perfectly. She trains under Brian Fletcher at Adrenaline Training Centre. We purposely kept the weight lighter than what she's used to for training so we could hit the poses and hold them longer. The pictures and video turned out great. Here's a few teaser images and a behind the scenes video.

I wanted to show the iron dedication the model has for working out and fitness so we needed an intense image.
