Sports Fitness Fashion Shoot – from a top san francisco lifestyle fashion and sports fitness fashion photographer

This is it! It feels like flying. The first step you take really is so invigorating I just had to create and entire shoot around the feeling of running.

This shoot took place just off of Fulton Street in San Francisco inside the trails of Golden Gate Park close to one of my favourite caf├ęs Velo Rouge. Believe it or not there are loads of trails all along the perimeter and throughout the park to glide through and forget that you’re in a city. I really wanted this shoot to feel like you were in a forest following a runner on her daily run.

Kristel my model is a well experienced runner. She frequently runs up and down the hills of Oakland and Marin. She runs several marathons a year and even ran the highly regarded Boston Marathon. If you don’t know that marathon is no easy thing to get into. You need to run a previous marathon in a fast enough time to qualify as well as beat out other people in your age category to be able to get in.

I also wanted to incorporate stretching into this piece as it is such an important part of running. In fact I believe it is just as important as the run, otherwise without it you can sustain some pretty nasty and nagging injuries. It’s not worth it, just stretch. I loved the colors that Kristel wore as she stood out from her surroundings as she flew through the trails.

The running community of San Francisco is so close to my heart I just love doing running shoots. Thank you Kristel for being a part of this shoot it was such a great experience!

Golden Gate Park Running Photoshoot – from a top san francisco lifestyle fashion and sports fitness fashion photographer

My shoot with Leija from SCOUT was pretty spectacular. Little did she know she was going to be jumping, bounding and leaping all over Golden Gate park when she arrived for her fitting and hair and make up prior to our shoot.

Our day was a grey, overcast San Francisco day, however, the images we created were full of lush and vibrant color as stylist Nicole Busch of Nicole Blair Wear pulled some of the most fabulous clothing to compliment our scenery. My hair and make up artist was the talented Tacha Scott Santana the owner of Dream Girl Make Up Institute.

For this shoot I wanted to create images of a runner, but not in the usual fashion. I didn’t want to just track a runner and fire away. I wanted to do something different. So for this shoot I had Leija jump over top of me while I layed on the ground. This resulted in fantastic images. Other times I had her bounding over logs so that you could see real exertion and true expression while running. One of my favourite photos is of Leija running next to a late with the tall trees in the background. I feel it reflects her long lean figure and stride.

I couldn’t do the shoots that I do without my fantastic team and am greatful for all the help and collaboration they provide on the shoots. Thanks so much ladies! You’re the best!
