I was so excited to be recommended to Georgina, when she expressed her wish to do a simple lifestyle shoot trying her hand at modelling what she knows best – fitness! With Georgina’s long legs and strong arms she did all the poses so easily. We were blessed with a relatively warm day (apart from when we stood in the shade, that’s when hoodies had to be put back on) and a quite empty park, except a few by-passers who got easily removed in Photoshop.
There’s something about utilising and learning to love and shoot in places that are near you. You know, they always say grass is greener someplace else? Well, I used to think the same until I realised I have beautiful spots on my door step, so why waste money and time searching for that ‘ideal’ shooting place when you can instead learn to use what you already have?
The park, even though not as large as others in comparison, features a large variety of different sets – I have shot couples, families with children, jewellery and now lifestyle / fitness photography there. Each corner or spot of the park offers different tones, backgrounds.
The images were created as a ‘taster’ of sorts for modelling, a modelling portfolio you could say. Georgina is a natural at lifestyle photography and I can see a photo of her advertising sports wear so easily.
P.S. When she becomes a model in demand, I will claim my fame by being the first photographer to have shot her.
P.P.S. Come visit my websites and say hello if you ever want to create natural images of yourself.
