#WorkoutWednesday: Toavon

I had the opportunity to photograph actor and fitness model Toavon in Los Angeles. With the NBA season getting more and more intense, we wanted to do a basketball inspired shoot. I did a two light set up, with a 47″ Foldable Octabox as the key light. For the second light, I played around with…

#MCM: Freddie Fleming

Just going to throw some nice natural light photos of Freddie Fleming taken at FD Studio. For this shot, since his back was at the window, I had a white v-flat behind me to bounce light back onto the subjects face.

Sunset Maternity Session

I had the opportunity to do a maternity session for Alicia Fitch of Brighter Affairs Events and Ent. She wanted a rooftop themed shoot showing off the Atlanta skyline with her baby bump.

#WorkoutWednesday: JRazz Bands

Had the opportunity to photograph Jasmine Rasco and the release of her new JRazz Collection premium resistance bands, the JRazz Bands. We created some stop motion fitness videos which displayed different workouts that you can do with the bands, as well as a comparison video. Not to be biased, but this is an amazing product!

#MondayMotivation: Nic B

I had the opportunity to photograph Los Angeles based fitness trainer Nic B. One thing I love about following her on instagram is that everyday she reminds you to shine your light! We all have many super powers but there’s nothing more rewarding than having a positive impact on someone’s life by simply being yourself and inspiring…

#WorkoutWednesday: Samori

Had the opportunity to photograph Samori of Sports + Lifestyle Unlimited Agency. This was a fun but a challenging shoot because of some nosey on lookers 🙄😂, but other than that it was a fun quick shoot. The cons of shooting with colored grenades is the short duration of the smoke, as well as taking in…

#MondayMotivation: Zoya

Where to begin when talking about this shoot?! First off, Zoya Yaseka is so amazing! Watching her move with such ease was mesmerizing. We did this test run before my shoot with Hayley to give me some understanding of working with an athlete on a trampoline. Little did I know that Zoya would make this…

#GetFreeWithBee: Mike Merrill

While doing the clean fitness shoot with Mike Merrill posted earlier this week, we decided to get creative and do some long exposure boxing shots. Styled by: Summer Tinch For the lighting set up, similar to my shoot with Travis Cure, I used a 4 light set up using the Paul C Buff‘s Einstein 640 watts…

In the Ring with Deontay Wilder

Yesterday I had the opportunity to document the WBC Heavyweight Champion, Deontay Wilder and Tru Fit Athletics on his media day at Churchill Boxing Club, as he prepares for is PPV fight against Tyson Fury on December 1st at the Staples Center. This was my first time being in the ring, up close and personal, and…

Had the opportunity to do some fitness shots with Atlanta based Actor Mike Merrill who was recently in The Bobby Brown Story. We wanted to create some Men’s Health Magazine clean fitness shots which is right up my alley. Styled by: Summer Tinch For the lighting set up I used a 4 light set up using…

#WCW: Nikkie

A couple of weeks ago I got to photograph Nikkie but this time for her birthday! We shot at the wonderful FD Studio which not only provided great props and places to shoot in the studio space, but it had amazing natural light. For the most part I only had to use a white V-flat to…

#MondayMotivation: Hayley

I had the opportunity to photograph UWS Soccer player and  Sports + Lifestyle Unlimited fitness model Hayley styled in Nike gear. Inspired by the movements and motion in Carlos Serrao Nike JDI campaign, I wanted to try my hand at it with my own personal twist. For this shoot, the model was jumping on a trampoline…

A couple of weeks ago I did an impromptu fitness shoot with personal trainer and fitness model Nadege Ndjebayi who just moved to LA from Paris. This time around we got to do some studio fitness shots that I truly enjoyed!

This past weekend I had the opportunity to cover the 2018 PRETTY GIRLS SWEAT fest back to the Georgia Freight Depot in Atlanta, Georgia!
