Fitness photoshoot with Samuel

Physique photoshoot at The Rosedale Club.

I love, love, LOVE doing physique photos so I was thrilled when Samuel needed some shots for an upcoming project of his. Fitness and physique are the perfect way to play with shadow, colour and texture. All that with the addition of a subject like Samuel, it’s a photographers dream. We bounced around The Rosedale Club on Yonge (where Samuel works as a personal trainer) and made use of the amazing facility. Armed with a ring light, Lume cubes, Alien bees and a very heavy camera bag, I’d like to think I got a bit of a workout too…

Here are some of my favourites from an amazing shoot with the driven Mr. Samuel Shimi!


Function Studios Inc

Some photos from my inspirational time at Function Studios in Newmarket.

The ladies at Function Studios Inc in Newmarket are an inspiration. I had the pleasure of seeing their dedication and discipline first hand when I shot there either this year. From yoga, to senior spin classes, this gym hits fitness from all angles. It was a whirlwind of positive energy and killer beats- not to mention some super cool mood lighting in the spin room. I’d be lying if I said I didn’t feel guilty when the ladies were giving their absolute ALL while I had the ease of walking around and capturing them in action.

When I think of pure force, energy and personal growth, I think of Function Studios Inc. 

This girls are kick ass from top to bottom! Take a look at some of my favourites from the shoot!



Shanlee & Sam

Shanlee & Sam are the kind of love that you root for. They are like watching two characters on screen that just “get” each other. You just love their love.

Although we almost rescheduled because of a rainy day, I’m so glad that the day turned around for us and we were able to use some of the puddles!

I’m so looking forward to capturing their big day this month!
