Personal Trainer Jannette Brodersen of JB Fitnez

Posted on 23rd April 2017 in lifestyle

Working inside of a gym is usually a fun experiment. Most gyms are made to be rugged and indestructible, with each different piece of equipment laid out in a grid to maximize space. Some are made well lit, many have zero windows, and most have mirrors everywhere.

Jannette Brodersen (fb, instagram), of JB Fitnez came to me and said she had a private gym of a new apartment building to shoot in with an eager client, Federico (instagram), to work with. Awesome. Yes. I’m game.

Curious, I asked her for photos of the room, and when I saw the floor to ceiling windows I knew this was going to be a well lit shoot, if nothing else!

Jannette is a personal trainer, yoga instructor and flamenco dancer. For this shoot, I had Jannette take Federico through a workout.

Poésie de Pole avec Leiah Luz

Posted on 14th April 2016 in lifestyle

Reflecting back on these photographs of Leiah Luz (previous posts, instagram, fb) we made earlier in the year makes me realize how poetic every experience is with her. This is what I strive to capture as a photographer, and always the space I aim to nurture. I realize that a collaboration implicitly means it takes two to create such magic, and without such a openness of those involved, it can never be accomplished.

You should check out Leiah’s feeds on social medias because this woman is doing some pretty marvelous things with her body in motion. Yesterday I was watching her doing a handstand while in the splits with her back leg as a wave. Motivation and beauty. Right there.
