Fitness Photography Photoshoot with Pallavi Gurrala. Vancouver . 2018

I had the pleasure of working with one of @reelathletesagency  talent, lively and lovely Pallavi Gurrala @bypallavi with the assistance of makeup artist @minjee.mowat.  We had great conversation about fitness, food, lifestyle, photography, social media and more.  I truly enjoy photographing fitness and outdoor lifestyle being that it’s always been such a big part of my own life. As a sponsored competitive windsurfer, I got to work with some of the best photographers of the windsurfing world. I understand what it feels like to be on the other side of the camera and I know that the perfect action shot often doesn’t take just one take and that the photographer needs to anticipate that moment where the timing is right to release the shutter.

As much as I love my job as a photographer, I am also very passionate about fitness, food and healthy lifestyle. I think shooting what you are passionate about in life is key to staying motivated in photography. I enjoy working with people, brands and companies that have a purpose.

I love simplicity and have a great appreciation for architecture, so when I get the chance to include these things in a photo assignment, I get very excited. I like the simplicity of the white Lululemon outfit against the white architectural backdrop. A series of photos to tell a visual story can be achieved by searching for new angles, changing the perspective and using lines in different ways.
