1st Behind the scenes video.

Heres my first “Behind the Scenes” video.

I wanted to do a shoot that would both benefit my portfolio as a Lifestyle/Sports photographer but also photos that could be sold as Stock photos. I contacted my Friend Cierra who i’ve known since High school and is a personal trainer. I cant help but credit alot of this shoot to her and the Great locations we had access to. The shoot went really well and we were able to do a large verity of scenarios in a short amount of time. I think from arrival time and seeing the locations for the first time, till we were packed up and leaving, was only about 4 hours.

Unfortunately this video isn’t as informational as i would have liked to make it. But if there’s any questions on how any of these shots were taken, feel free to ask.

Below I will have an equipment list of all the gear used during the shoot.


Here is a basic Diagram for the above image.
