A yoga teacher, a sunny day, one of our favourite locations and a photoshoot for website and promotional shots.
This sort of work is very interesting, as a photographer you are used to directing a shoot to a certain degree, of course there needs to be a certain amount of freedom and spontinaity, and especially with our weddings and our childrens photography there always is.
But when photographing yogis ( I think this is what they are called) theres another dimension, for a start you have no idea how advanced the positions they can (and want ) to do and of course you can’t direct these, as only they know what they are doing. You can suggest the locations and you choose the angle of the shot and you choose the camera settings, but really the art lies between the client and you. Its a real excercise of working together, two artists working in totally different fields and producing something together, The results were quite incredible.
We have another Yoga shoot coming up in a couple of weeks, this one will be very different as the client wants a different feel to her end photographs, we are very much looking forward to this one too as it will have a slightly more urban feel to some of the images.
