Anytime Fitness March 26, 2014 A few weeks ago Lisa and I had the amazing opportunity to photograph a group of hard-core fitness enthusiasts at Anytime Fitness in Sauk Rapids, Minnesota. I created high contrast lighting that highlighted every feature of their muscles. I really love how different it looks from my usual subjects. We had a diverse group. Emily and Shay are the fitness instructors. They hired me to take these pictures to update their portfolio. Then they found out that more people wanted in on the fun. We had a couple that work out together. What a great way to get in shape, while spending time together! Built in accountability partner- awesome! Maybe this could be Lisa and me in a year- ha! Then we have the iron-man athlete posing with a super sweet custom-made bike. Finally we have a body-builder doing some super challenging poses on the pull-up bars. I have never seen an amazing group of fit people so dedicated to working out & having fun together. After this four-hour shoot, I was actually motivated to work out more myself. I won’t ever have an 8 pack, or able to do that awesome “horizontal to the ground grabbing behind me on the pull-up bar” thing. Don’t looking at these pictures motivate you?!? This group has already booked me for July when they get “more ripped.” I can’t wait! Let me know if you are ready for your awesome work out pictures. Or maybe you are starting a work out program with some friends and you want some “before” pictures now and then you’ll want to schedule your “after” pictures later this summer. Go for it!
