Yesterday saw me making the most of the GC for a couple of shoots… One of them was for the WOD Dogs project with a superstar of Australian and International SUP (Stand-Up Paddling), Starboard sponsored Beau O’Brian, his stunning partner Ashton Woods, and their two #SUPdogs, Lala and Bailey. Beau has a list of SUP achievements as long as your arm and given his and his partners’ passion for dogs and animal welfare, they were the perfect choice to be a part of the project.

This morning was spent with 2 extroadinary humans and their little canine pack, at one of the coolest boxes on the Gold Coast. I am talking about the very aesthetic Clay’ and Revie Schulz, their 3 pooches; Rhino, Tank and Peach, and their biz; CrossFit Babes Miami!

Clay’ and Revie were never not going to be a part of the WOD Dogs project… Both are avid dog lovers and animal welfare advocates, and if their dogs could speak, they would be up for ‘Parent of the Year’ nominations! 

I don’t want to give too much away in this forum, as these guys have a beautiful story and I hope the images do their tight knit family justice. Here is a sneak peek at some of the images I captured today:

I was privileged to be asked by Revie of CrossFit Babes Miami to shoot their first Games Day… It comprised ‘Babes’ athletes only, and was a showcase of how far these ladies have come in their training and also gave them a taste of competitive CrossFit. And, it didn’t disappoint (for many reasons)! Cracking venue, weather, coaches, support staff/volunteers/judges, a demo by pocket rocket Jessica Coughlan (Rogue Athlete, placing 6th at the 2013 CrossFit Regionals – Australia), and great stalls by ASN and Thea Doyle. Overall, it was testament to Revie and Clayton’s hard work, professionalism and dedication to their clients. Here’s a little sneak peek at the day (I haven’t included too many individual shots as I wanted Revie to be able to post them for the box, herself – trust me, there are MANY more!):
