Photo Session with Canadian Olympian Kristen Bujnowski

Canadian Olympic bobsleigher Kristen Bujnowski needed images for promotion and sponsors. She came into the studio and we figured out the plan to get her the images she needed. In addition to being a world class athlete Kristen is also a mechanical engineer. It was a really treat to work with her. We captured a bunch of sponsor images and other promotional pictures. Below are a few of the images we made.

Bobsleighs can travel at 140+ km/h, notice the scrapes on the helmet?

Fitness Photo Shoot with April

April came into studio last week for a fitness update shoot. She's only been lifting heavy for the last few months and has made a lot of progress in a short time. BF% is down and the weight is up. She looked great and more importantly is feeling great. Here's a couple of early edits from the shoot.

At the same time as I was photographing Niki's poses I had the shoot recorded.

A Few More Images from Niki

A few more from my Yoga / Pilates photo shoot with Niki (@at_the_mat)

Yoga Shoot with Niki

I finished out the year with a yoga shoot with Niki. She has some insane moves and poses. Her strength and flexibility is off the charts. We got great images. I basically sat back and let her hit pose after pose.

Athletic Figure Shoot with Angela

I had the opportunity to work with Angela Shen yesterday on my implied nude athletic series. Angela is a former track athlete and had some great poses. She worked really hard as some of the poses / movements were challenging. She is a great model and I am really please how these images turned out.

The images were shot on a black background, generally a 3 light setup with strong rim lighting. F11 / 1/200th / ISO 100.
