Riley Marx – Fitness Model

A few studio images for the portfolio of fitness model Riley Marx. We’ll do a second session outdoors when rainy season has finished. Always great to work with such a dedicated athlete. If you’d like to have a go at using studio lighting, the next Intro to Studio Lighting Workshop is June 14 & 15, 2014.

Jenna’s Toy Story

Fellow photographer Pete Leong popped around to the studio with his daughter Jenna. Took a few quick pics of her playing with Mario and Elmo before she began making decorative changes to the studio backdrop. Jenna is super cute, and until a year ago looked like exactly like Boo from Monster’s Inc. She showed me how to draw a rainbow with a fistful of colored pencils.

Andrea Conn – Location / Studio Session

Last week I did a location / studio session with bodybuilder and servicewoman Andrea Conn.  Andrea has been training for the Pacific Muscle Classic Show on June 2nd, and wanted photos of herself while looking and feeling at her peak. After an hour on the beach we headed over to the studio and I shot both fitness portraits, and some softer beauty shots. This gave her a nice selection of images for both her own albums and to send to family back home. All in all, a fantastic shoot with a lovely lady. I’m sure she’ll knock it out of the park at tomorrow’s competition.

The Fortune Teller

Jovi can see the future. She said that Iron Man 7 was excellent, and that Justin Beiber’s second term as president was relatively uneventful.
