Back in January I set up a shoot with fitness blogger Charlotte Clarke.
Charl is London based and a big fan of the city and the fitness community based there, this was something we wanted to include in the images, alongside the stunning architecture the city offers.
Our first location was canary wharf, where the newly opened crossrail bridge in canary wharf would give us a clean and slightly sci-fi backdrop to show off charlottes impressive yoga skills.
Using a profoto B1 with Photek softlighter, both held by my assistant Katie (except here where she grabbed a couple of BTS shots for us), we kept a small footprint and created some beautiful light.
The next location was down towards the river where we wanted to show more of the size of the city, and make use of the streams of light cutting through the buildings.
followed by some lifestyle images for charl’s blog before we needed to get somewhere warm and defrost (it may look sunny, but it was freezing), Charl was a star to work with, and she got me back for shooting in the cold by finding the healthiest food in the city….. now, where’s my cake?
