Shooting fitness photography on location.

When I shoot fitness photography outside I like to have several locations all lined up. It is important that the locations I choose are suitable for the time of day that we are shooting. But it doesn’t always work out that way. Sometimes I just have to wing it. 

Fitness photography on competition day

When I get asked to photograph fitness competitors on competition day this usually means a session between the morning show and the afternoon show. What I like about it is that the competitors are in top form. They are excited, full of energy and fun to work with. But it can be challenging in that I don’t have a lot of time to scout out the area properly and plan the shoot. So I try to find some spots very close to the competition venue. This keeps the logistics under control. All I need is a few feet of interesting background and we are in business. Midday lighting can be a problem but as long as I am careful everything works out just fine.

These photos are from a fitness photoshoot of Stephanie and Sarah at the Winston Roberts Open. I took these photographs within a block or two of the venue in downtown Burlington. We were right out in the open on a Saturday afternoon and there were lots of people around. The spectators were polite and very accommodating. If someone hadn’t seen a fitness photoshoot before they might want to know what this shoot was all about and who are these girls are. Most of the time they moved on after a minute or two. In fact when we had a few onlookers it energized the girls even more.

These fitness photographs are of Stefani and Alicia from the Ontario Natural Championships in London. I was not familiar with downtown London and we didn't have a lot of time but I was quickly able to find some locations that worked out well. The back lighting on Stefani and the soft side lighting on Alicia is very flattering.
