Run This Town

A few weeks ago, my friend Hollis and I woke up extra early to get in a work out. Well, he worked out, I just took the pictures! Check them out:

This shoot was really great. We got up bright and early to get the beautiful morning light and get all the good locations before they got too busy. Mornings can be tough when it’s really really early, but we kept the yawns away by laughing, having fun and keeping it really high energy. We shot in Santa Monica and Culver city at popular work out spots. To keep the backgrounds clean I had to choose the right angles, shooting up instead of straight forward or down. This can eliminate a lot of clutter in images.

As always, if you guys have any questions about how these images were shot or anything like that, please feel free to ask.

Training Day – NFL Style

Last year, Fox Sports sent me to photograph a private NFL training session before the 2013 season. Here are some of the shots from that day:

Sometimes when you watch football on tv, you forget how much training and dedication it takes to be a star athlete. Watching these guys work out first hand was jaw dropping. Just the sheer power and athleticism is amazing. So next time you’re on the couch watching monday night football, these photos will motivate you to get off your butt and work on that killer six pack you’ve always wanted.

As always, if you guys have any questions about how these images were shot or anything like that, please feel free to ask.

Fit and Fun

A few weeks ago. some friends and I got together for an afternoon work out. We ran around, threw the football around and just had a really great time. Check out the pictures here:

We shot around my neighborhood in South Central Los Angeles. It amazes me how many cool and interesting places you can find just by stepping out your front door. If you don’t know where to shoot or how to find a good location, just go for a walk, you are bound to find something cool. This shoot was also a lot of fun because the talent was having a great time. If  you find it hard to shoot a larger group of people, let them talk and get to know each other a little before you start. Models that feel familiar with one another are more likely to have fun and interact naturally with each other during the shoot.

As always, if you guys have any questions about how these images were shot or anything like that, please feel free to ask.

Down and Dirty

Now that the Olympics are over let’s get back in to the gnarly action we all love so much! Rally car action from X Games streaming into your eyeballs in 3… 2… 1…

This year, rally car was a little nuts! A lot of crazy crashes before the event even started, the jump was taken out along with some other precautionary safety measures, but it was still a fun event to watch. We want these guys to live long enough for more crazy stunts, am I right or am I right? Still got all of the skate events on tap for you guys.
