The couple that works out together gets fit together
I recently had a fitness photo session with Whitney and her beau Angelo at The Gym Downtown in Norfolk. The couple met while working out 6 months ago and share a passion for fitness and health. They spend time together working on fitness skills and meal prepping while supporting each other in competitions. It’s gotten to the point where they are about to start a couple’s training class.
Working with this couple was a breeze. They were attuned to each other and they had a game plan in terms of the images they wanted to try. We worked in various parts of the gym but I was pulled to the large, red brick wall on the third floor. It matched their passion for fitness and love for each other – not to mention their hard bodies.
One of my deepest convictions as a photographer is that sometimes it’s better to light around something instead of lighting it directly. This is why you tend to see more silhouettes in my work. It shows off the subject’s form in a more dramatic way but also allows the viewer to perhaps see themselves in the image. I love how this one looks.
Whitney will doing a fitness competition soon and they both will be competing together in Team SuperFit this December 13th in Hampton, Virginia.
Whitney is a trainer at The Gym Downtown as well as a CrossFit Coach at CF Callused gym in Chesapeake, VA.
