You’ve done the work, lets show the world
From Behind The Camera
Fitness Photographer in Arizona
Working with world class talent never gets old. I am continually amazed at the dedication and perserverance my fitness clients show day in day out. The countless hours at the gym, carefully measured macros, and the mental toughness it takes to be the best is just another day. Photographing their finished work is so inspirational. There is more to them than just a washboard stomach.
What to Expect
I typically do an online consult with each client to determine what they are after. Is it portfolio building for their website so they can show their best physique? Perhaps they are growing their social media and want something far beyond the average cell phone selfie. We will hash it out and determine if a studio session or an on-location fits your needs (or both).
Studio or on-location sessions are up two hours long. Plan to go through about 4-6 outfits as we will get you a variety of images to obsess over .
What to Wear
Fitness attire of course is always my client’s first choice. Typcally a sport / job bra top and workout (booty) shorts. The goal is to show off your hard work. Don’t be afraid to throw in one or two lifestyle looks if you want to look great out of gym clothes. This can take on something simple as jean shorts and a top, or go all out in a cocktail dress.
As a fitness photographer I’m proud to offer clients a choice of studio or on-location. For studio I have choices available in Mesa and Tempe that are both located near major freeways for easy access. Your favorite music will be cranking away as strobes light up that amazing physique you have carved out.
On-location we have so many choices here in the Phoenix area. From gritty urban areas with graffati to open desert and everything in-between we will get you in some great locations. I like to shoot near sunset to take advantage of the golden hour for the best light. If your schedule needs something different I’m happy to accomodate.
After the Shoot
After all those glorious photos are taken, I will go through them and cull the best ones out to go over with you about a week or so after your session. We will schedule a time at the studio to review all of your amazing images where you will pick out your favorites for purchase. We offer several digital collections as well as a variety of print products (metal prints rock!).
I’ve never had pro photos taken, will you help guide me?
Absolutely. Many of my clients have never been in front of a professional photographer. I’m here to help you look your best!
Can you help me pick a location?
Sure can. I have a mile long list of locations.
I would love to go to Sedona for my session. Do you travel?
I do. There will be a trip charge outside the Phoenix area.
Can I bring a friend to the session?
Absolutely! All that I ask is they don’t interfere during the shoot.
Speaking of outfits, how many should we bring?
I always suggest 6-8 so you have a vareity on the day of the shoot. Sometimes when we get started you just don’t feel one of them so it’s good to have options.
I would love to have professional hair and makeup done. Do you have recs?
I do and can provide you with several options.
I’ve worked hard and want both studio and on-location. Is that possible?
Yes it is. We offer a discounted price when you purchase both.
I have a few more questions.
Ok, let’s get those answered. You can contact me using our form, or at 480-223-8615, or [email protected]
What they say
My photoshoot with Chris was one of the best experiences & most memorable! He is professional, helpful, and had a great creative vision!
He made my photoshoot fun and nailed the look I was after. I couldn’t ask for better quality and end result! – Lori
I’ve been working with Chris since 2018. I moved here from CA in 2017 not knowing any AZ photographers and someone had tagged me in one of Chris’s photos on Instagram…and the rest was history!
We did our first shoot together in 2018 at Papago Park and it was an amazing experience. I’ve done many photo shoots. Some great, others sketchy with unprofessional photographers. Since becoming a mom I’ve become overly cautious with who I work with, and I can honestly say that Chris is extremely professional, respectful, and takes pride in his work, which I respect! Not only do my photos turn out amazing every single time we shoot, Chris is very quick with turn around. It can be hard to find a photographer that has beautiful work who is also professional and respectful, and Chris is one of those people. Just an overall great human!
I’ve now done 3 fitness shoots with Chris as well as a holiday family photo shoot where he met my hubby and son – all great experiences.
You cannot go wrong shooting with Chris. I highly recommend him and I personally will continue to work with him. A diamond in the rough among this crazy world of fitness photographers! Je
