My favorite images from my shoot at Crossfit Beaufort, the goal was to make these lovely hard working ladies look as cool as possible. Needless to say, they did a great job, even enduring the exceptionally cold water that day. It was definitely frigid that day, about 58 degrees when I woke up and walked outside that morning.
I used a simple pvc system with garden sprinkler heads to create the rain falling, and hung everything up using plain old wire to the structure at Crossfit Beaufort. A few things I would change... I used a black vinyl backdrop that reflected a little light. If I had used a cloth one instead, it would have absorbed the light and produced more of a black background. Waited until it was warmer... I had almost canceled that morning, just because it was so chilly, and I knew my models, Richia and Jess, would be super cold. I'm glad I didn't as I still got amazing images, but I'm really picky about making my models uncomfortable, so that played a lot into what I felt comfortable asking them to do.
Lastly, I need to give credit to Benjamin Von Wong for the inspiration, he does amazing work and is really doing a lot to bring attention to the environment. You should definitely check out his website and his work, nothing short of amazing! A HUGE thank you to Crossfit Beaufort for hosting us that day, can't thank them enough!
Hope you enjoyed the images, and I'll be posting more fitness photography, soon!
