Behind the Scenes on a Fitness & Branding Studio Day: Brisbane Fitness Photography | Brisbane Corporate Photography

Yesterday was a lot of FUN! After giving up our studio some time ago due to doing a lot of our client work on location, we booked a full day of client work and hired the Fox Street Studio to create some magic.

We had client’s with some fun ideas that we wanted to make a reality and the studio was the perfect place to make it happen. We had fitness competitors, nutritionists for branding and health influencers and created a great array of imagery!

Check out some of the fun below. Andy and I also jumped in for a few fun shots of us too! haha

A big thanks to our helpers on the day - Bella and Dex and Fox Street Studio for a great space. Amazing job to our clients Sam, Gerard, Taylor, Tara and Teanna.

From Embracing the Beach to Urban Colour Pop: Brisbane Fitness Photography

Sometimes a client has enough trust in your expertise and your style of photography that they leave the concepts of the shoot up to you. I LOVE THIS! I just need a location that they like and the style of outfits they want to wear and I create a vision in my mind of the outcome.

This was the case with the beautiful Emma. She told me her locations she liked and we discussed outfits, but the rest was up to me. I wanted to create something nature driven, candid and beautiful that really featured her kind spirited personality and her love for this particular beach (without going full beach raunchy in the sand haha).

We began our session at Burleigh in the Gold Coast for some beach photography by the water, followed by some active wear imagery then we drove to Brisbane to finish with some outrageous colour concepts!

Check out the result below! :)

Empowering woman to love their bodies! BTS Vlog on tips & tricks for your first fitness photoshoot...

I am so lucky in my job that I get to work with unbelievable women that are inspirational, driven and have undergone emotional journeys to reach their goals. I get to be a big part of this journey, helping them plan their photoshoot, creating a vision to capture this moment in their life, documenting it for a lifetime, bringing their ideas to reality while also becoming a friend!  

One of the most common things I hear is "Is that me?". So many women have no idea how beautiful they are and how unbelievable they look in the skin their in. Yes I photograph males and females at the peak of their conditioning for competitions, but I also photography body transformations, weight loss journeys and boudoir photography, embracing the body in its everyday state. Everyone is on their own journey.... and we pride ourselves on creating a fun and personalised experience, offering very specific styling, posing and planning guidance easing the nerves and stresses of planning a photoshoot. 

A photoshoot is not always about looking lean and 'shredded', it's about capturing your beauty and creating an end result that you're proud of! 

I recently got to work with the stunning Sophie, guiding her through the process of how to plan and prepare for a photoshoot including supplying location galleries, Pinterest boards for styling, outfit planning and creating a visual of what her end result would be. 

This was Sophie's first photoshoot and to capture this experience, we created a behind the scenes vlog of what is involved in a fitness/boudoir photoshoot. We give you an insight into a 'day in the life of Life Portraits' showcasing our gold package (1-2 hour portrait package) with Sophie and what happens on a fitness photoshoot. 

See some of our favourite images from the shoot below as well as the vlog. Sophie is such a beautiful woman who priorities a healthy lifestyle (not competing) and embraces her everyday gorgeous body!

Why invest in a fitness photoshoot? Brisbane Fitness & Weight Loss Transformation Photography

Last week I captured the stunning Stacey after recently competing in Sydney at the WBFF bodybuilding show. She has one of the most unreal physiques and proportions I have seen and an absolute pleasure to photograph. 

Being a past figure competitor, I know what it takes to get to this level of fitness and conditioning. A takes a lot of hard work, heavy weights, meal prepping, tracked macros and calories, posing practice, sacrifices in your social life, long days at work followed by exhausting gym sessions..... And the list goes on!

But when you reach your goal of stepping on stage and you reward yourself with a photoshoot to capture your journey, you realise..... it was all worth it! Capturing this moment in your life where you have put so much focus, time and determination is worth the investment - not only for yourself but for future generations, your kids, your family. This is part of your legacy. 

See some of our favourties below from our shoot together in Brisbane.

Channelling a personality into a photoshoot: Brisbane Fitness Photography

When I first had communication with Paige, I could sense she was a bubbly and energetic person. She was very keen with ideas, really open and a lovely person to deal with. I had some really clear visions of what I wanted to create with her, channelling this energy and her personality. 

She picked out some beautiful locations from my locations gallery I supplied and straight away I knew the style of images I wanted to create and she was open to the guidance. I assisted on outfits, styling and together we created the most beautiful set of images!

Here's some of my favourites below!

The Raw Emotion of a Bodybuilders Competition Day

Have you ever looked at a bodybuilder and been fascinated by their physique, their dedication and motivation? Life Portraits, Brisbane Fitness Photographers, take you behind the scenes into the bodybuilding world....

Life Portraits are taking their viewers on a journey behind the scenes into the bodybuilding world by offering portrait fitness packages in the form of candid competition day photography, capturing the true and raw emotion of the competitor. We showcase their hand crafted physique by capturing behind the scenes candid moments on competition day, documenting those health and fitness memories for a lifetime.

I recently was commissioned by competitor Jordan and his family to capture the behind the scenes moments of his first competition at the ICN Bodybuilding Competition. I came away from the day feeling motivated, my happiness tank full and so honoured to be a part of his day. It was Jordan's first competition and he did an amazing job and should be so proud! 

Take a journey through the emotions, the preparation, the tanning, the posing practice, the pump up, the intense focus and the presence he brings to the stage in the images below. I love being a part of this journey and capturing such a personal aspect of someone's fitness journey. Having competed myself, you are so stressed and focused on getting on stage that once the event has passed, you forget the moments in between and what you looked like. That is why I love to capture this, as the competitors put in months of dedication to their comp prep, why not capture this for a lifetime?

LP Fitness captures personal fitness photoshoots, weight loss transformations, behind the scenes of bodybuilding competitions, couple fitness portraits and fitness branding. See more at Brisbane Fitness Photography at
