What’s the point of having all those certificates and trophies for running when they fail to tell a story? Trophies can be an honor but you need a story alongside it to complete the package. If you’re fond of running and want to save your legacy, a running photography shoot is just what you need. All you need to do is run a couple of KM to get your body in that natural state of a flushed and glowing skin and Aaron will do the rest.

Sports photography / Fitness Photography can be a demanding field and you need to know your way around the camera for a perfect shoot. However, with the experience Aaron possesses, he won’t have a problem shooting even the fastest of runners.With sports photography you need to emphasize on paying attention to outlining all the rich elements like the model, location, attire, lensing and colors. Especially when it comes to capturing runners from a fair distance, photography can elicit a lot of difficulty because of the accuracy and speed required.

Taking a marathon runner for example, spectators (including photographers), need to stay at a safe distance from the runners to avoid any disturbance. To get some decent shots of the runners without using long lenses can be very difficult. On the other hand, if you have a professional like Aaron doing the job, there won’t even be any need of such equipment – all he needs is a steady hand and his super-fast reflexes with his abundant photography skills.

Prepping Fitness photography session

 To make it easier for you…

To make it easier for you we have come up with a list of things you need to do and take care of before coming for your session.  Prepping for a fitness photography session can be easy as much as it can be hard.  We always advice talking to your with Aaron Wilson (your fitness photographer) with any issues.

1. A few days before the shoot, make sure you avoid things that aid water retention like salt. Even out your tan avoid bringing any clothing which reveals your tan lines – unless of course you want them to be seen. Try out all the clothes you might wear during the photo shoot and make sure they all fit properly and do not give out a “worn-out” look.

2. If you plan on doing your own hair and makeup, be sure to practice a few times. And as you might have noticed, models in fitness shoots are almost completely hairless on the body. A hairy body does not compliment your muscles, so try and shave it off for a neat and clean look. Also, make sure you facial hair is well-trimmed and presentable. A clean-shave will be the preferred option but you can opt for a short, neat stubble.

3. On the day of your fitness photography session bring in as many clothes and props you wish. You can never overdo it. And a fitness shoot also calls for a large towel and some wet wipes. Many things that may look good in reality, may actually look really bad through the lens. Try to keep your outfit plain so the emphasis remains on your body. Do not opt for heavily printed designs. You can have some statement accessories and makeup to add an “oomph” factor, though.

4. Make sure to start relaxing a few days before the shoot. You will definitely be benefitting your shoot in ways you cannot imagine. Stress shows on your face and body. In fact, stress can also cause you to get pimples and red spots, which you definitely do not wish to have during a fitness photo shoot because most of your body will be bare and visible.

5. Before the photo shoot, talk with Aaron Wilson and plan out some shots. Discuss what your goal is and what you wish to achieve out of the shoot. The photographer will be able to guide you for some further tips and tricks which can make your shoot even better.

Bay Area Photography Tours

imageBay Area Photography Tours are back!!  We are now offering more city’s! More customized! Keep a eye open for a city near you or ask about a area!!  Seen from across the bay, San Francisco, the city by the bay, appears white against the azure skies above the Pacific Ocean and the eponymous bay that sets the city apart from all others in the United States.  A charming attraction that brings visitors year after year to see and enjoy the many sights, sounds and flavors of this marvelous city. Not everyone however, has the opportunity to see and experience many of San Francisco’s exciting offerings. Most visitors to the city have only a few days to experience the motley array of colors and flavors that set San Francisco apart from the rest of the country.

Now Aaron Wilson Photography’s Tour Packages can make your visit memorable for many years to come with our delightful and exciting tour packages that carry you comfortably along in air conditioned comfort to see and experience one scenic photo opportunity after another as you cruise along through the many interlocking cities that orbit around San Francisco like planets orbiting a brilliant sun.

While San Francisco itself presents an ever beckoning array of popular attractions such as Fisherman’s Wharf with its variety of restaurants, shops and sights to visit such as a boat ride to Alcatraz…Chinatown — a tiny bit of Old China, this city within a city that began during the Gold Rush Days, lies set apart with its own main street, Grant Avenue, in the heart of the San Francisco. Bursting with narrow streets, restaurants, authentic Chinese markets and shops featuring gift items you feel lost among the throngs of Chinese pedestrians scurrying about on their daily business.

You’ll enjoy the beaches and vistas offered as you pass by the Golden Gate Bridge, a one-of-a-kind wonder in a world where style and charm have given way to more practical bridge=building practices.  The list continues, but keep your cameras ready as you tour southward to marvel at the beauty of the beaches you’ll see in the charming City of Santa Cruz with its fresh seafood restaurants, shops and amusement park.  We at Aaron Wilson Photography offer tour packages especially created to allow visitors to be able to take the most memorable and exciting photos possible, photos that will remain with them for a lifetime.

The Napa Valley, famed for its wineries, where vineyard after vineyard offers wine-tasting…there is a wine for everyone to be found here where California now boasts many fine wines comparable to the famed wines of France.

There is so much more to be experienced, all within reach of San Francisco, the hub of Northern California. The giant redwoods, trees that were here when King Tut ruled Egypt! South again to Monterey, home not only for many artists but again, fresh seafood served on the wharf, and only steps from the charming Carmel-by-the-Sea and the super-famous Pebble Beach Golf Course.

But while we offer so many well-planned tours offering the best of the Bay Area, we offer still more: Any and all our tours may be customized to suit the individual family or group to add to your greatest satisfaction.

Once you walk the beaches of Santa Cruz or Monterey camera in hand, or stand among the magnificent redwoods of our Northern Coast, you’ll want to come back year after year. Out along the Western Edge of San Francisco you may well glimpse whales frolicking about in the Pacific Ocean just within range of your camera.

Let us guide you on the photographic tour of a lifetime. Just bring your camera and we’ll do the rest!

Fitness photography – Yoga style

video of Cassandra doing Yoga Fitness

We did a fun Yoga photography session at lake Merritt in Oakland California yesterday. Here is a small video clip at the end of the shoot. We shoot over 2,000 images using about 60+ gigs of data. We also got a family photography session in with Cassandra and her 2 kids. Cassandra is in the NPC.  We have worked with her for about 4 years now. We enjoy every shoot with her!!
If you into fitness just for your self, for the art, or love the compation side of it; Doing a fitness photography session is a great way to show you gains, were you currently are or even built a fallowing base of fans. Your be surprise how many people you may inspire in your journey on the path of fitness. Some times it’s the memories of what you are currently doing if there ever is a tragic accident or to show friends and family that blank years ago I started out like this and now I am here at this point.

I do not know where I would be without the love and support from my sponser Max-Muscle Santa Cruz. Jordan, Geff Malone and Sarah Malone are like family and every time i go into the store i get a warm welcome with smiles and hugs. Thank You guys so much for being there for me through literally THICK and THIN! 💪🏼 Much love always!!!! #nofilter needed with @aaronwilsonphotography amazing photography ❤️📸 #teammaxmusclesantacruz #bikinimodel #fitnessmodel #beachshoot #santacruz

    Even though we are in the San Franscico Bay Area we travel to Santa Criz a lot! And the store that she’s talking about is the only place we buy from unless we go to the Gilroy location. We use to be big “GNC” fans but we had to know what we wanted before going in. Sarah and Geff are both amazing people and they train Their staff very good. 

  Panther beach is a little hard to get too. But if you don’t mind a little hill up and down then Panther beach is a great photo spot. Doing a fitness photography session to a family photography session.
