“He who can no longer pause to wonder and stand Rapt in awE, is as good as Dead; his eyes are closed” – Albert Einstein…
Today saw me supporting Belinda Wasowski’s annual Intensity Personal Training photo-shoot for the third year and it is always one of my favourite events to photograph! This year’s theme was ‘Primal Princess’ and shot with a bushland backdrop in Teneriffe Parklands. Every one of the ladies were a dream to work with and blew me away with their radiance, confidence and grace. And, it is always testament to the host, Belinda; her mentorship and approach with her clients consistently demands strong results. Thanks for yet another amazing day… Here is a sneak peek at some of the images form the day:
For those that know me, know that I am an excitable dude… And so when I was confronted with the bodies and personalities of these ladies to shoot, I was pretty freaking excited!!! Amelia, Jacinda, Jaana and Darcia, are all stepping on stage in their first ever figure comps over the next fortnight, and so wanted to get some shots taken as a memento of their hard work and dedication… These bad a$$ ladies have been constructed by none other than Ms. Figure Pro Universe, Tammie Sarkozy. So, it was little wonder they were looking extremely sharp and well prepared! The afternoon was one of my most fun to date and it couldn’t have been the success it was without the support of CrossFit Torian as one well kitted out FITography studio!!!
Here’s a preview of what we got up to:
Probably one of the most anticipated shoots of my life to date was this one!!! The SportsMed sponsored WOD Dogs project has seen me shoot some inspirational athletes and pooches and this was certainly no exception! Australian surfing legend and current World champ, Mick Fanning and his beautiful Belgian Shepherd X Lab’, Harper, were an absolute pleasure to work with… In fact, right from the first communications I ever had with Mick, I was blown away with how humble, courteous and selfless he was. Mick is a true gentleman and after seeing him and Harp’s in action, the man is a huge animal lover, advocate for the welfare of dogs, and supporter of RSPCA Qld. It was a no-brainer to have Mick as a WOD Dogs feature… Hopefully the pics do this dynamic duo justice! A special thanks must go out to EzyDog for their support and supplying Mick and Harps with some amazing gear also.
