Lorin Boudoir Photoshoot – Penguin Tasmania

The stunning Lorin came to my studio for a boudoir photoshoot. Lorin was my third boudoir shoot to date. I was so lucky she trusted me to capture some stunning images for her, she was very nervous and has since told me she nearly cancelled at the last minute. We had lots of fun and captured a variety of amazing images for her.

My mission

My mission when it comes to photographing women is to help them realise how gorgeous they are just as they are. To often I hear “I will have to do a photoshoot with you but I just need to loose “x” amount of kilos first“. It seems like all ladies that I come across point out things that are wrong with their bodies and really struggle to point out a part of their body they like.  I find it really sad that we struggle to love ourselves and  I really hope things swing around and women start embracing and loving the body they have.

Since I have done the same I have had to push myself out of my comfort zone and have a boudoir/glamour photoshoot. The experience was so beneficial for me it made me realise how my clients feel in front of my camera. Also how much some of the poses hurt to hold for to long and I got to experience how it felt to see amazing photos of myself. I will share some photos in a future blog post. As a result I am trying to retrain myself to be happy just the way I am. We all have things we would change about ourselves if we could,  after being subjected to over photoshopped images in magazines for so many years.

Therefore I am making it my mission to help women love them selves just the way they are. One woman at a time, through capturing glamorous images they can treasure forever

Lorin’s experience

Lorin’s feedback absolutely blew me away.  The review below is exactly why I want to pursue boudoir and women’s photography. I really believe everyone should have the chance to have some amazing photos of their selves.

It was an absolute pleasure to capture these images. Lorin is such a stunning, fun one of a kind woman and very talented make up artist.

I tried to pick one favorite line from Lorin’s review to highlight but I couldn’t.  It is all amazing and I really appreciate her taking the time to write such in depth feedback.

Enjoy Lorin’s experience and boudoir photos.

ICN Fitness Competition – Launceston, Tasmania

My second experience at body building photography was at the ICN Competition in September, held in Launceston. So much preparation goes into these competitions it still amazes me the dedication and time that goes into training, dieting, make up, tanning and competing.

The Launceston expo was Michelle’s second competition. Again it was absolutely amazing being involved in my great friend Michelle’s lead up. She shows so much dedication and determination to her diet, exercise and training.

As a result of her hard work her results were as follows:  two firsts, a second and a fourth place.

Michelle

Here is an insight into Michelle’s preparation (taken from her facebook page)

“The day after the big day 😁 all I want to do is train again and eat lots of food. I sat back this morning and reflected on the last 12 weeks. I looked at photos from the April comp and also my day 1 photos. 😬 I started my 12 week prep at 62.6kg, I went down to 58.2kg in the 12 weeks. My body fat started at 22.6% at last check in a couple weeks out I was 11.2%. That’s 7kg of fat gone but I only lost 4kg  but everyone told me I couldn’t build muscle in that time? WRONG!!! Tell me I can’t and I’ll show you I can 💪🏻

I put in a lot of hard work and committed myself to this process. Yes I missed out on going for a drink on the odd occasion, but the pub is still there. Yes I missed out on junk food for 12 weeks, but maccas is still there (I had a sundae last night) all of it was worth it.

If you want something people go and get it. If you want someone to help you get there, support you, kick your butt, actually care about you, tell you the truth, constantly encourage and guide you, help you achieve, believe in you, then hit up Alpha Team Training. 😊 For all those people that said I couldn’t, Chris believed in me and my drive to make it happen. He committed himself to my journey, just as much as I did! Go follow Alpha Team – Melbourne is the next stop, then who knows what!!”

Alpha Team

My conclusion

As a result of the Launceston expo I realised that the competition photography is not something that I want to do in the future. I can not handle the lack of control over lighting positioning and locations. I realised I dont enjoy it as much as I thought I would. This doesnt mean i wont go and support my amazing friend Michelle, it just means i wont be sharing photos from future competitions.

It was a great eye opener and really made me realise what I love to do is Fitness, Boudior and Glamour photoshoots. Keep an eye out for future post on these genres I really love.

Meantime, please enjoy a few snaps from the competition.

ICN Fitness Expo – Hobart Tasmania

Early this year I was invited to the ICN Fitness Expo, held in Hobart. This presented a fantastic opportunity to gain an insight into, and capture the training, determination and effort that goes into competing. I am in awe of the dedication of these athletes.

The Expo

First of all, a little information about the ICN Expo.

The Expo brings together the best in the industry to celebrate healthy lifestyle options. Not only does the expo showcase the ICN Muscle and Model Show, it also featured some fantastic competitions, demonstrations and displays. These included pilates, power-lifting, cross fit and jiu jitsu.

Also, the expo showcased the top sports and health and fitness exhibitors from locally and nationally. This gave expo goers the opportunity to ask questions, find out about new products and opportunities to get fit and healthy in Tasmania.

 

About ICN Australia

ICN Australia are the worldwide leaders in natural bodybuilding, figure, modelling, physique, fitness and bikini events. Their organisation is known as the ‘Technology Leaders’ of natural bodybuilding with over 54 Countries and growing. ICN is a highly professional organisation in which competitors must be drug-free. Hence the competitors training hard and sticking to a muscle building diet.

Michelle

The Hobart expo was Michelle’s first competition. It was amazing being by her side and therefore gaining a look into the inside of the competition world. This included diets of steak and chicken, late night tanning, a 6am start for make up, tanning touch ups back stage and just general running around to make sure she had everything required.

As a result of her hard work, as shown in the last photo, she cleaned up. Her results were as follows: Ms Figure international first timers – 2nd, Ms Figure international novice – 1st,  Ms Figure international open – 1st, Ms Figure Novice – 1st, Ms Figure Open – 1st.

As a result of the Hobart Expo, i’m now looking forward to the State Championships in Launceston on September 17th. I’m excited to see what the Launceston Championships have to offer, if the Hobart expo is anything to go by, it is certain to be filled with extremely dedicated athletes showcasing all of their hard work, and their commitment to the sport of bodybuilding.

Here is a small selection of the photos from the day:

Gym Photoshoot- Devonport, Tasmania

I have many personal missions as a photographer, two of them relate to the fitness & gym photoshoot.

1: To help women love their bodies and realise how amazing they look.

2: To get people to exist in photos not just for themselves but for their children and families.

Through this journey, I have met some amazing people and made some amazing new friends

So, therefore it was time for another gym photoshoot. This time four amazing ladies trusted me to capture their astonishing hard work and fitness journeys.

I love meeting such inspiring people and being able to create images for them to document where they are at in their individual journeys and how great they look.

Ashlee

Ashlee was first up for her shoot and like everyone that gets in front of my camera for the first time, she was nervous. The nerves soon faded once we started shooting and just having fun.

Ash had also never stepped foot in a gym in her entire life, before she started doing classes late last year. Now she hits the gym in the mornings to do weights on her own, and knows the do’s and do not’s of nutrition for her body.

When we asked Ashlee what she thought of her experience she said:  “I loved having my photos done with Tegan, she made me feel so comfortable and relaxed

Emily

Emily was next up, and she was super nervous. Again, after a few shots, and a few laughs, the nerves disappeared. Em is a mother to 2 boys, and also the owner of a busy hairdressing salon, so doesn’t have a lot of spare time! But somehow she still finds the time to work out and look this amazing.

When we asked Emily what she thought of her experience she said: “On my very first photo shoot, Tegan was very professional, she made me feel very comfortable and I surprised myself with how much I actually enjoyed it !! Would definitely do another!”

Debbie

Deb was next, she is a wife and grandmother and has always been a regular gym goer. Deb is also aiming to complete her first half marathon in October. Such an incredible goal which i’m sure she will smash.

When we asked Debbie what she thought of her experience this is what she had to say: “Absolutely loved my fitness photo shoot with Tegan. She made me feel so comfortable and relaxed and we had so much fun and laughter. Highly recommend Tegan for any photo shoot. She’s fabulous!

Michelle

Is one of those special people that I mentioned that has become an amazing friend. She helps so many people while working full time and also smashing her own goals.

These photos were taken a month before she stepped on stage for her very first ICN fitness competition in Hobart. She was working out like crazy and sticking to a very strict muscle building diet. Stay posted for my next blog post to check out the photos and to see how she performed.

Here are a few words from some of the ladies who’s lives she has changed:

Ashlee: “If it wasn’t for Michelle pushing me to push myself I would never have done this photo shoot or been the person I am today.

Emily: “Michelle is so inspiring, dedicated and encouraging. Watching her achieve all her health goals, just proves that anyone can achieve theirs, if they believe. “

Debbie: “Michelle is an inspiration to all that meet her and train with her. She’s dedicated her life to helping others reach their goals and become the new strong super person they long to be. I’ve been gyming for many years and can say that she’s the best motivational trainer I’ve ever had, she pushes me to do my best and then some, superwoman, our very own ninja warrior.”

Fitness Photographer – TKO – Devonport Tasmania

My first fitness Photoshoot was at TKO Extreme Fitness Devonport late last year. These 4 inspirational ladies pushed themselves out of their comfort zone and in front of my camera.

They are all very dedicated amazing people and it was my pleasure to document their hard work and provide them with some amazing images.

 

Jodie

Was first up for her Fitness Photoshoot. She is a busy wife,  mum, works full time and still manages to find time to workout and keep her household in order.  As a result of her amazing hard work and dedication she has lost an impressive 15kg in her journey so far.
She said she is not only physically stronger but also mentally stronger I think these photo say it all. Doesn’t she look amazing!

Michelle

Lastly for her Fitness Photoshoot is the lady that made it all happen and sparked my passion for Fitness Photography.

Michelle is an amazing inspirational woman who I am lucky to have met nearly a year and a half ago. She is always helping so many other people reach their fitness goals and is always inspiring the people around her.

Now here are a few words from some other special people whose lives she has changed she has changed

Jodi says: Michelle has gone over and above to help me get to where I am. She is tough but fair and nothing is impossible. At the end of the day I have made an awesome friend too.

Suzanne says: I wouldn’t be where I am today if not for Michelle maybe I wouldn’t even be around at all. I was at a loss Michelle and the gym saved me. She made me realize that I had worth and I was worthy, gave me back my self respect and confidence and made me believe in myself.

Tracy says: I second what Jodi said Michelle is a hard arse with a soft centre lol – she is an amazing and inspirational woman!
