Zac Stayton Fitness Portraits
March 23, 2013
Brown Road Community Church
Grove City, Ohio
My boyfriend and assistant Ben and I had a great time working with his brother Zac on some fitness portraits! Zac recently finished 1 month of taking the supplement "Pure Flex" by Finaflex and needed an "results" photo for his before and after pictures from taking the supplement. We met Zac at the gym at his church. It's got a really neat, hardcore training feel coupled with signs and reminders of the Church and Christ. It was a unique setting and we had a lot of fun making some neat images.
A large part of my background as a photojournalist is sports photography. For years, in addition to news stories, I covered mainly sporting and athletic events, one of my favorites being the Arnold Sports Festival here in Columbus, Ohio. Sports photography can always be a challenge, but I welcome it! I enjoy photographing people when they're at their peak performance during a game or at their peak fitness level. It takes a lot of discipline and hard work for someone to get to that point and I respect that and enjoy photographing them. I was very excited at the opportunity to make some new sports portraits especially of someone that I know. This shoot allowed me to combine my love of the fitness world with my love for some creatively lit portraiture! If you're looking for someone to capture you at the end of an exercise program, or your gym's personal trainers, or are an athlete looking for some unique portraits for your portfolio, please contact us!
Enjoy some of our favorite's from Zac's session!
