I guess you could say I am an amateur model at best, and a deer caught in the headlights at worst. I have modeled for Hero Images, Sportchek, and various photographers, the former of which I have worked with for a few years now.
Fitness shoots are common for me because of my background in personal training and boxing. But I have ventured in other directions with some casual shoots and festive ones. Heroes Images has selected me for a few of their shoots, and it has fun for me, and I am happy to be a part of them.
My photographer friends have asked me to shoot with them to either help them build experience, or to help me get into modeling. Either way, it has been a fun experience.
Videos and Media
The videos here are a combination of speaking with the audience directly while others feature voiceover during the exercises themselves.
Not only did I participate in a shoot with Sportchek, I was also part of the crew that was featured in this commercial. It was a blast, and all the athletes/models are all Calgarian, with a few friends of mine amongst the crew.
A few years back, CityTV came to Urban Athlete to interview us trainers on different types of workouts. It was a great experience, and I am forever grateful for the opportunity. I talked about boxing while Ghyslaine, my client then, worked the bag. You can find the video here.
We also collaborated on a group workout video that featured some dynamic exercises.
