#3 Who Need Fitness Photography?

Fitness has become a way of lifestyle for many (both male and female) enthusiasts as people are getting more health conscious. As a hobby, some people would love to document down the progress of their health journey and thus they would like to do a fitness photoshoot. Some people also wish to keep their social media updated.

People whose jobs are related to fitness, such as personal trainers and Pilates instructors should do a professional physique photoshoot in order to present themselves better in social media and marketing materials.

I've encountered people who have gone through a transform in their physique and want to document down their bodies at the peak. These people may have participated in some health programmes. It's good to celebrate the achievement.

There are also people who have approached me to take photographs for their dating profiles. As having a healthy hobby is one of the key attractions, I've proposed them to do a casual fitness themed photoshoot. The fitness photoshoot doesn't have to be a bodybuilding kind of shoot, but it can also be a casual sport, such as jogging or hiking.

To sum it up, anyone can also do a fitness photoshoot.

My focus on fitness photography is to present the current state of fitness of my models. You don't have to be a bodybuilder in order to do a fitness photoshoot; you also don't have to have a toned body as well. Of course, let's be realistic that the photographs may not look very flattering if your body has gone extremely out of shape. Eventually, I would advise everyone to take note of their bodies for health purpose.

#4 Location for Fitness Photography

Fitness photography can be done at both indoor and outdoor locations. I've done fitness photoshoots in gyms, photography studios, tourist attractions, gardens, parks and even off the main Singapore island. All these locations do give different vibes for the fitness photoshoot and thus the choice of location is up to individuals' preferences. My photography services do include offering suggestion, given that you're able to give me as much details as possible.

I. Outdoor Fitness Photography

The most common location for doing a fitness photoshoot is at outdoor. Doing an outdoor fitness photoshoot, unlike in gym and photo studio, usually doesn't require additional fee for booking the place. On top of that, there won't be problem of finding available slot/ schedule. With more interesting scenery, the photographs may be more interesting.

However, the timing for an outdoor photoshoot is crucial to get good photographs and the team may have to set for an early morning (golden hour) session, especially for avoiding photobomb in the late afternoon. With interesting backgrounds, the attention of viewers may be diverted to a certain extent, partly depending on the photographer's choice of photography equipment. The weather plays a big part and everyone is subjected to attacks by insects. For people who are self-conscious, it may take a bit of time to get used to the looks from passers-by.

II. Photo Studio Fitness Photography

The best thing about doing a fitness photography in a photo studio is the ability to play with interesting lighting to create all kinds of effects. Although I can also set up professional lighting at any place, the logistic would be gigantic and thus more manpower and time would be required. Doing a fitness photo studio photoshoot with a plain background allows the focus to be concentrated on the model. Besides, it's usually much more comfortable than an outdoor place.

Of course, the setback of a photo studio fitness photoshoot, to some people, is that the plain background may not be interesting enough.

III. Gym Fitness Photography

Doing a fitness photoshoot in a gym is ideal for people who want a balance between an outdoor and photo studio. It provides the same comfort of a photo studio with air-conditioning and clean places to rest at. Having gym equipment in the background, it makes the photographs more interesting while the equipment would resonate with fitness. The indoor location protects the photography equipment and entire team from bad weather and insects.

However, it's difficult to find an available and presentable gym. Furthermore, even if the permission is granted, the gym photoshoot can likely be done only outside the gym's operational hours so as to avoid photobombs or obstructing the other gym users, especially if it's a high-end photography that lighting equipment will be set up. Doing a fitness photography in a gym may require additional cost.

#5 The Fitness Photographer

I do both high-end and casual fitness photography catered to the need of individuals.

High-end fitness photography includes using of professional lighting to help creating very impactful work, including in a photography studio. The photographs would look more professional, however, would require more equipment and effort.

Casual fitness photography depends mainly on natural and ambient light. Due to the ease and low cost, most people do this kind of photoshoot for their personal social media uses. Since most people own a smart phone with camera and DSLRs are more affordable, it may take more effort, skill and creativity in order to create casual fitness photographs that can differentiate from others'.

I usually focus on both the looks and bodies of my models, as I try to create flattering light on the faces. I like to create unique work. Therefore, I personally prefer to do high-end photography.

My proficiency in post-production work can help to improve the shape of bodies if the model were to request for it. However, there's limitation for the improvement and I also don't do cloning of another person's body onto my models'. I always try to minimise editing work so that the photographs would look more natural. Remember that the more editing work is to be done, the more editing flaws will be discovered.

Fun fact: I go to the gyms often - not to train but to eat. My good friends run a personal training business and own many gym outlets.
