At Onion Studio we love photographing weddings, babies, families & commercial work, but every now and then we take the time work on some personal projects. I am working on photographing athletes. I find there strength and commitment inspiring. The time they devote to conditioning their bodies to be the best they can be.
So welcome to our studio, Kayleigh, Phil & Bob. All athletes from Buffalo State College. These are not models, but they all did so well in front of the camera, and look amazing. Posing, flexing, holding and being patient as we worked our lighting. We spent about an hour with each of them with different outfits and athletics poses or actions. We asked Phil, Kayleigh and Bob to bring in several outfits to pick from. Nike seemed to be most chosen brand. I love the Nike Combat shorts. Adidas showed itself as well. The chains were on loan from Buff State athletics, and they are real steel, heavy chains. At the end of the gallery you will see a composition of one of the photos and a train. The train was photographed on a separate day and location in Cheektowaga, then pulled both images into photoshop to merge them together. I have other locations in mind for some of the other photos, but waiting for the right light and weather.
We are looking for the next set of athletes to join our portfolio of work. If you would like to be photographed please send your information, your sport and a photo to firstname.lastname@example.org
