Photographing a Personal Trainer

This session with a personal trainer was easier than it could have been. That’s because I was photographing the personal trainer rather than being put through my paces.

Following on from the previous blog post, ‘Healthcare Photography’, this post segways nicely into the category of prevention rather than cure. The wellness industry is growing massively and as such there’s a huge competition.

For a personal trainer to stay ahead of the competition he or she isn’t just trying to stay one step ahead of the other trainers, they also competing for attention against other categories within the wellness industry.

Consumers are being told about clean eating, gut health and sleep hygiene so if a personal trainer wants to win new clients (or keep the ths they already have), they need to stay in the conversation.

Social media plays a large part of this, which is why Phot Heads found ourselves photographing a personal trainer. This commercial photography shoot was designed to create a library of images to be used across social media.

These images can be used with expert opinion and advice which can be distributed through the trainer’s socials.

Although the Photo Heads style leans in favour of colour photography, it was felt that for this shoot grainy black and white photography would work really well as you will see from the images below.

For alternative content watch this personal fitness video but first, have a look through a selection of images from this collection of personal brand shots.

Within the gallery below is a number of headshot style images and portraits taken in the moment. We also made the creative decision to include some black and white and grainy images. This, along with closeups of the tattoo tied in with the fitness culture aesthetic.

Photo Heads can mostly be found photographing in London, sometimes in Bristol and occasionally elsewhere but we do travel throughout the UK and Europe. Don’t forget to follow @thephotoheads on Instagram.
