Fitness Photography: Personal Trainer Camilla

This shoot with personal trainer, Camilla Cantelli Mortensen, was so cool because she was totally open to the dramatic lighting and had the perfect look for it. The Pinterest board she created as inspiration for the shoot had a bunch of striking poses she wanted to try too. Check out these strong, lean photos of Camilla!

Fitness Photography: Boxer Shannon of the Nonantum Boxing Club

When Shannon walked into our shoot and announced that she liked everything she's seen that I've done and that she'd do whatever I thought would be cool for the shoot, I knew we would have some fun. Since she loves boxing and owns a gym, the Nonantum Boxing Club, with her husband, we started with some jabs and crosses before moving outside and changing things up. She also brought the awesome Everlast wraps and pink gloves which made for great props.





love these gloves!






Thanks again to Shannon for an awesome shoot! To see more photos, head on over to my Facebook fan page: www.facebook.com/LucieWickerPhotography

Putting Photos to Work

I thought it might be interesting to do a post on some of the ways my clients are using the images we create together. Generally they are looking for photos for marketing purposes- websites, flyers, postcards, blogs, Facebook fan pages, etc. Here are a few examples of how some of the photos are getting put to work!

Last fall I did a shoot for activewear company, DA Active. This is a preview of their Fall 2013 line which they showed at the Surf Expo in Orlando, FL.

 Pilates guru, Jennifer Phelan, used the images to advertise Pilates events she was teaching around the city, including one sponsored by Zico Coconut Water.

 Websites! Most of my clients are looking for quality photos for their websites and here are a few examples! From top left: www.alibaldassare.com, www.laurastevensonpilates.com, www.jeannieyoga.com, www.jenniferphelan.com.

A little inspiration can go a long way. Lauren of Sweat with Lauren Hefez used this photo and quote to inspire her followers on instagram.

Fitness Portrait Shoot with Personal Trainer Kristin Lorenze


Meet Kristin Lorenze! Kristin trains clients privately and also at Get In Shape For Women in Wellesley, MA. Kristin came to me looking for photos for her new website and marketing materials.

She wanted some shots to submit to magazines that feature fitness professionals, like Oxygen Magazine. We did a few clean shots like this before moving on to the more dramatic lighting set-ups...


 Stretch!






Thanks to Kristin for a great shoot!

Winter Snow Storm Report

As I'm sure many of you know, Boston was hit pretty hard by a massive snow storm a few weekends ago. It was fun to watch from the inside but I did wander out a few times to get these shots:

The night before...


...and morning after!



Apollo the snow beagle was loving it. Sounds like we can expect more snow tonight, I hope everyone in the Northeast stays warm and safe!

Fitness Photography: CrossCycle's Chris Gagnon

When Chris Gagnon started telling me his ideas for the shoot, I had no idea what to expect when the day finally came. What he brought with him was lots of props- kettlebells, an exercise ball, weights, tires, and even a bike (which makes sense since he is the creator of a popular strength training program called CrossCycleยฎ). He also brought his friend, Angela, who turned into a prop herself!

I was pretty psyched that they were willing to try out this pose- and they nailed it.
Push-ups off of another person- they make it look easy but it was not!

Fitness Photography: Move Sweat Love with Ali Baldassare

 
This spring I did a fitness photo shoot with Ali Baldassare of Move Sweat Love with Ali. Ali teaches several different fitness classes, from Zumba to spinning to Pilates, all over the city. The shoot took place in a few different spots on the Rose Kennedy Greenway on a bright, sunny morning. The result- lots of color and energy! Which is what Ali is all about. Here are a few faves-

 
 


Thanks again Ali!

Fitness and Fashion with Jennifer Phelan Pilates

 Last month I had the change to work with the fabulous Jenn of Jennifer Phelan Pilates. I did a shoot with Jenn last summer and was psyched to work with her again; she loves to bring the drama and glamour (which I love too)! Her stylist, Keely Witkowski of B. Fetching, makes sure that even in workout attire, she is still fashionable and she was great to have on set. Here are a few of my favorites:
