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!

Yoga and Dance Photography in Boston: Erica Bornstein


I started a wish list on Pinterest of yoga poses I thought were cool and would love to shoot someday. Without even knowing this, yoga and Zumba instructor Erica (who teaches at Sweat & Soul Yoga, Back Bay Yoga, and Soul.Train) showed up to our shoot and nailed most of them! This girl has some serious skills, both on a yoga mat and in the dance studio:

New Fitness Class in Boston: Barre & Soul with Andrea Isabelle Lucas

There's a new class in town! When yoga instructor Andrea Isabelle Lucas told me she wanted shots of her new yoga-infused barre class, Barre & Soul, I was more than happy to help her out. We staged the shoot at Lexington Power Yoga where she is currently offering the class (according to the website, it's coming soon to Equinox!)-

 After the class we did some portraits of Andrea in her favorite poses too-

Love her shirt- "If you want to achieve greatness, stop asking for permission." Thanks again Andrea! For more information on Barre & Soul, check out the website: www.barresoul.com.

Yoga Photography: Jessica

Meet Jess! Jess is a yoga instructor (with a serious interest in fashion!). When she hired stylist Keely Witkoski to help create a look for our shoot and Keely took one look at her closet, she knew fashion had to be incorporated into the yoga theme. Here's what we created with this in mind:






Such a fun shoot! Thanks again Jess!

Dance Photography Workshop with Lois Greenfield

In April, I had the honor of attending a weekend-long workshop with world-renown dance photographer, Lois Greenfield, at her studio in NYC. Lois has worked with many dance companies over there years and has perfected the art of shooting dancers doing what they do best. During the workshop, we were each given about 15 minutes with one or two dancers- coming up with a short routine, finding the right costumes, and the shooting it! Here are a few I captured during my time behind the camera (all photos Β©Lucie Wicker/Lois Greenfield Workshop 2013)
