Empowered by a Unique Nature Boudoir Photo Shoot in the Mountains

Sam, an alternative model, is a living canvas. Her body is adorned with intricate tattoos that reveal her life story, and her long, flowing dreadlocks symbolize her unique journey.

Her quest for empowerment led her to a one-of-a-kind boudoir photo shoot in the mountains, where she found the strength to uplift herself as a human and empower herself as a woman.

Tattoos as Symbols of a Resilient Journey

Sam's tattoos are more than ink on her skin. Each tattoo represents a milestone in her life, symbolizing her transformational journey of personal growth and the strength she gained along the way.

We hiked to a secret spot where she felt a deep connection to the earth while modeling for her photoshoot. The natural beauty of the mountains provided the perfect setting for her journey of growth and empowerment through alternative modeling and tattoos.

Awakening and Capturing Her Sensual Femininity

Sam radiated sensual confidence and empowerment during our boudoir photoshoot as she posed in black lace lingerie. Her tattoos, dreadlocks, and the stunning mountain landscape were all part of Sam's celebration of womanhood as she rejected conforming to societal standards and embraced her authentic self.

Sam's outdoor boudoir photoshoot was an inspiring reminder of how true empowerment comes from self-acceptance and refusing to be defined by external beliefs and standards.

A Message of Empowerment and Liberation

Sam's outdoor boudoir session in the mountains is a powerful message to individuals everywhere. It reminds us that empowerment is a profoundly personal journey.

Her choice to express herself through tattoos, dreadlocks, and the majestic mountains was an act of liberation and an invitation for all to uplift themselves and find empowerment in their unique ways.

In the mountains, Sam discovered not only breathtaking scenery but also the strength within herself and the potential for all of us to empower ourselves as humans, celebrating our individuality and embracing our true selves.

Sam's Unique and Special Boudoir Experience

As a boudoir photographer, I'm always looking to create an experience that empowers my clients, helps them feel free, and allows them to have fun.

Sam found beauty in her own skin by embracing her unique style, including her tattoos and dreadlocks, and showcasing it in the stunning natural setting of the mountains. I encouraged her to express herself freely and have fun throughout the shoot.

"Tony is a very professional photographer, with an amazing eye for capturing the beauty in his work! We’ve
done a couple boudoir shoots and he’s amazing to work with. Very comfortable and professional, feels
natural! I 1000% recommend Tony Ciccone for any and all  photography work that you need!" - Sam Gibson

The photos capture her confidence and joy perfectly!

Yoga girl Kendra Miller in leopard print yoga pants.

Yoga is a practice that people have enjoyed for centuries, and its popularity has continued to grow over the years. One of the most beautiful aspects I love about yoga is how it can be captured through photography, showcasing the grace and strength of the human body in motion. Whether it's an action shot of a yogi holding a challenging pose or a serene photo of a practitioner in a natural setting, yoga photography has the power to inspire and uplift people.

 

Popular types of yoga photography include:

 

  • Nature-based yoga photography: These photos often feature yogis practicing yoga outdoors in stunning natural settings, such as on a beach, in a forest, or on a mountaintop.
     
  • Action-based yoga photography: These photos capture yogis in a challenging pose or flowing through a yoga sequence. Images like these often show the strength, balance, and flexibility required for yoga.
     
  • Artistic yoga photography: These photos are often highly stylized and use creative lighting, angles, and composition to create visually stunning images. Some examples include silhouette shots or pictures with vibrant colors.

 

In this collection of magical yoga photos, you will explore the beauty and artistry of this ancient practice through stunning imagery that captures the essence of yoga.

Many incredible yoga photos on the internet showcase the beauty and grace of the practice. Ultimately, the best yoga photos are the ones that uplift and inspire you.

I’d Like To Do a Fitness and Lifestyle Shoot!

I was approached by Caitlin, who was preparing for a bikini competition and needed fitness and lifestyle photos. The photoshoot took place in both gym and urban settings.

 

"Hi there! I love your work and would like to schedule a photoshoot...I'd like to do a fitness and

lifestyle shoot. One scene in the gym and other outdoors."

 

We decided to have our photo shoot in the lively RiNo Art District in Denver. There were plenty of vibrant spots to capture her BoHo and Lululemon outfits. She did an excellent job posing, highlighting her toned and muscular physique with each pose. We could have spent the entire day shooting there!

Body Mantra. Live your Magic. Expression Through Nude Yoga Poses.

My photography resonates deeply with Jessica, especially because I can capture the essence of her body movement and expression. It's always a pleasure to know that my work can touch others in such a meaningful way.

Capturing her freedom of expression with a fine art nude yoga photoshoot is a perfect way to start the New Year.

We had a wonderfully fun time with her gold body paint and nude yoga poses!

Sparkly Face Mask Photo Shoot

2020 started positively, but we all know it quickly became quite a rollercoaster ride. Remember the broomstick challenge that took the internet by storm? Well, believe it or not, it led to the discovery of an alternate universe! Amid all the chaos of 2020, I reached out to my friend Jess for help documenting the importance of social distancing and wearing face masks during these challenging times of the coronavirus pandemic.

As a former photojournalist, I have always been passionate about capturing unique moments. I've been inspired by the creative ways artists and athletes express themselves during the pandemic. Seeing individuals like her channel their energy into creating such beautiful and powerful movements is heartening.

Yoga in her Spiritual Playground

The yoga lifestyle photo session was captured in her spiritual and creative space located in the heart of Downtown Denver. With multiple natural light spaces in her LoHi studio, the entire area basked in beautiful, soft natural light, creating a truly inspiring environment.

In this session, we amplified her natural beauty and showcased her impressive athleticism. Her graceful movements and form genuinely embody the power and sensuality of a goddess.

"I truly believe every person has a light inside of them and love that is burning
in their hearts. Yoga can help to facilitate or brighten that light and soften your
heart so you are filled with love and compassion." - Mindful Jess

Stop the Yoga Selfies!

While we may have poked fun at or been judgemental towards yoga selfies, it's important to acknowledge their potential benefits. Capturing yourself in a pose can be a valuable tool for self-assessment, allowing you to check alignment and form. It's also a great way to capture candid moments of joy and accomplishment during your practice.

However, consider collaborating with a photographer specializing in yoga poses for a genuinely professional and artistic visual representation of your yoga journey. Their expertise in lighting, composition, and capturing the essence of movement will result in photographs that transcend a simple selfie and elevate your yoga experience to a whole new level.

1. How Do I Get the Best Yoga Images for Instagram?

Consider taking your Instagram content to the next level with a professional yoga photography session. A knowledgeable yoga photographer understands the intricacies of the poses and angles that will best showcase your practice. They'll guide you through different postures, ensuring you feel comfortable and confident while they capture your yoga flow in stunning visuals that are perfect for your Instagram feed.

2. How Do I Get Ready for My Shoot?

Make the most of your upcoming photo shoot by dedicating a few weeks to practicing your selected yoga poses.

Pro Tip: Hold your breath for a few seconds while holding your pose. Holding your breath will help to maintain your pose while the photographer takes a few pictures.

3. What Do I Wear and Bring to a Yoga Photoshoot?

Choose a couple of outfits (3-5) and props that reflect your personality. Bring water and snacks to keep you hydrated and energized.

Pro Tip: Choose solid, neutral, or muted colors for your outfit. They blend well with any environment. Bright colors tend to reflect on the skin. Get creative and bring a dress and a pair of jeans.

7. Choose Interesting Locations for Your Yoga Photoshoot

Choosing the right location for your photoshoot will make your session memorable and deliver the best photos representing your spirit.

Let's take a look at these diverse settings for your shoot:

Scenic Outdoor Spaces:

Capture the serenity of your yoga practice among nature's beauty at locations like a peaceful sandy beach, a lush forest, or a quiet park.

Urban Landscapes:

Showcase your yoga poses against the backdrop of city skylines, street art, and urban architectural designs for a contrasting visual of your organic lines against the urban setting's hard edges.

Home Sanctuary:

Create a cozy and personalized space within your home, using soft lighting, decorative elements, and calming colors to emphasize the intimate and grounding aspects of your practice.

Photo Studio:

Step into a photo studio for a creative lighting experience, giving you that professional look. A studio session will provide polished, high-quality photos for your yoga practice.

Historical Sites:

Immerse your yoga photos with a sense of history and culture by practicing at iconic landmarks or historical sites, blending your yoga practice with timeless surroundings.

Botanical Gardens:

Surround yourself with vibrant flowers and plants in a botanical garden, enhancing your yoga photos with the colors and textures of the natural world.

Rooftop Views:

Elevate your yoga photos by taking advantage of panoramic city views from a rooftop, adding an elevated perspective to your poses.

Body of Water:

Whether it's a tranquil lake, a flowing river, or a cascading waterfall, incorporating water elements into your yoga photos can evoke a sense of fluidity and peace.

Cultural Centers:

Explore cultural centers, museums, or art installations to create a fusion of yoga and cultural expression, blending the physical practice with the richness of human creativity.

Fitness Spaces:

Capture the strength and energy of your yoga practice by incorporating elements of fitness spaces like gyms or outdoor workout areas, highlighting the physical aspects of your poses.

 

8. Experiment With Flash and Natural Lighting

Natural light: Creates a soft and serene atmosphere, emphasizing the connection between the practitioner and their surroundings. Take photos during the golden hour. That is the period shortly after sunrise and before sunset. The gentle, golden light makes it an excellent time to take pictures, improving the color and mood of your images.

Off-camera flash: Helps to accentuate the contours and details of the body, showcasing the strength and precision of each yoga pose. Consider experimenting with highlights to emphasize the elegant shapes formed by the body while performing poses. You can also add colored gels for a creative and cinematic look that will stand out.

Combination (Natural & Flash): The fusion of these two lighting sources creates a soft, organic glow that highlights the fluidity and elegance of the pose, while flash lighting accentuates the intricate details and contours of the yogi.

9. Explore Camera Angles and Distances

Yoga photography isn't just about capturing poses. It's about capturing the nature of the practice. You can unlock a world of creative possibilities by venturing beyond eye level and exploring different camera angles and distances.

Low-Angle Shots

Imagine taking a low-angle shot capturing the overall detail of the pose. This perspective can empower the yogi, highlighting their strength and flexibility while holding challenging poses.

High-Angle Shots

On the other hand, a high-angle shot can bring focus to the model's face, creating a sense of calmness and serenity – perfect for capturing the meditative aspect of yoga.

Side Angles

But it doesn't stop there! Experimenting with side angles allows you to showcase the body's graceful lines and the flow of movement within a pose.

Close-up

And remember the power of a close-up. Close-up shots can reveal the intricate details of the pose, the yogi's determination, and the connection between mind and body.

Long Distance

Moving beyond close-up shots, consider the impact of photographing yoga poses from a further distance. This wider perspective allows you to showcase the environment with the yoga pose. Imagine capturing a yogi flowing through a Dancer pose on a scenic mountaintop or a serene Mermaid pose on a peaceful beach. By including the surroundings, you create a richer narrative, telling the story of how yoga can be practiced anywhere, anytime, and become one with the environment.

 

10. How Do I Get My New Yoga Photos To Look Good on Social Media?

Ask your photographer to resize and format images for social media or use the following chart to crop your photos for Instagram.

Instagram Post Sizes for different instagram posts.Instagram Post SizeInstagram post sizes for landscape, portrait, square, Instagram stories, and reels.

Instagram Post Size - Quick Reference:

  • Horizontal Posts (16:9) - 1080px X 566px
  • Vertical Posts (4:5) - 1080px X 1350px
  • Square Posts (1:1) - 1080px X 1080px
  • Instagram Stories (9:16) - 1080px X 1920px

I use 3000px instead of 1080px for my clients. It's convenient to have one set of images you can use on any platform and send to get printed and framed. However, I do keep Instagram Story Posts at 1080x1920.

Pro Tip: Be sure there is enough space around portrait shots to accommodate Instagram's crop.

Please Support my Mom's Emergency GoFundMe https://www.tonycicconephotography.com/blog/2017/12/grandmabella-needs-a-new-roof-fundraiser Grandma Bella's Fundraiser

In the spirit of giving, please support this fundraiser I set up for my mother.  She is elderly and has a hard time getting around her house. I have been working on making it more easy for her to navigate through out her home. However, my energy has now been focused on her roof and walls. There is an area of the roof and wall collapsing. The work will be done in phases. Stopping the severe water leaks from the roof if #1. Next phase, replacing the wall that has suffered major water damage. 

I am truly grateful for any help you can give. Any amount is truly appreciated.

Follow the link to my mom's fundraiser: Grandma Bella's "Get a New Wall" Fundraiser

Roof Work Progress

As you can see, below there has been tremendous progress with her home repairs.

I was looking to build a new roof. We were looking at $25,000 to $30,000 to build a new roof. However, I found a different solution for fixing the roof that will cost less. Exciting news!

Update Summer 2020: The roof no longer leaks with the help of everyone that contributed. Next is phase #2, which is fixing the wall that is damaged from years of water leaking from the roof. My mom's mental health has improved and she is much happier now.

Thank you for all the help!

Phase #2 - Fix wall (Summer 2022)

Looks like a section of wall will need to come out and a new one put back in place. Not sure what they will find when they dig into this project. We don't know if the support beams are rotted or need to be replaced.

Denver Fitness Photographer https://www.tonycicconephotography.com/blog/2017/4/denver-fitness-photographer Fitness photography is my passion

I find so much joy in working with athletes to capture their strong and chiseled physiques.  Photographing the various stages in their active lifestyle such as CrossFitBodybuilding, Aerial Dancing and Yoga.  Seeing these strong people stick to their guns and follow through is inspiring!  

Why are you so passionate about fitness photography?

People ask me why I focus on fitness photography.  Well, I almost feel that it is built-in.  Or it could be the love I have for the drawings of Leonardo da Vinci.  I have always found the mechanics of the human body to be amazing.  There is the obvious beautiful aesthetics of toned and defined muscles.  However, through my eyes, I see steam, pistons, cogs and wheels moving and making things happen.

As an athlete, I am naturally drawn to this as well.  I connect well with the fit people I photograph.  We are on the same wavelength.  This makes for an easy going and fun photo shoot!

Ready for your fitness photo shoot?

Wherever you are in your fitness journey, I would love to photograph your strong and beautiful work!  Book a photo shoot with me if you do yoga, crossfit, bodybuilding, fitness modeling, physique and anything that moves your body in your active lifestyle.  Heck!  I will capture amazing fitness lifestyle shots of you running down a mountain trail or out on the track field.

Own a Crossfit gym?

I am happily available for all your Crossfit box photography needs!  Great for your social media, web and print material!

Let's do this!

Let's elevate your presence and inspire with images that have a passionate and powerful impact!  Inspire people with your strength and passion!

Photographing the Hunter's Supermoon in Denver https://www.tonycicconephotography.com/blog/2016/10/hunters-supermoon-in-denver As a Colorado-based photographer, it is important to me to capture nature's beauty. The Hunter's Supermoon of October 2016 was a beautiful capture! It was also a great way to test my new ProMaster XC525 tripod.

I last photographed the moon during a lunar eclipse in the early 1990s on top of Red Rocks Amphitheater. My parents came along with me for the little adventure. I'm thankful for their patience! Anyway, I found the mysticism and adventure of the lunar eclipse shoot because I used film!

Not knowing what the results would look like without experience or guidance was exciting. I just went out there and clicked away! Let the drums roll. 

I took my film to get developed, and most of my prints looked like a bright flashlight in the dark. Fast forward twenty years later, I must have done something right this round!

I used a variety of camera settings to capture the six moons shown in the photo. I'm thankful for the digital age. Having a live view, seeing your results, and adjusting as needed made me do the happy dance.

Rooftop Yoga Classes in Denver | Airbnb EventRooftop Yoga Classes in Denver | Airbnb Event

I had the pleasure of being the professional photographer for an unforgettable outdoor yoga event held in Downtown Denver. The event was organized by Airbnb and provided by WHISK. It took place on the rooftop of the Galvanize building overlooking the Platte River. It was a beautiful day filled with warm weather and smiling faces, and everyone had a great time.

The Sound Off Experience provided the music for the event, which was calming and uplifting. Audra Robinson of Inspired Wellness was also on hand to share her expertise in yoga poses and offer samples of doTERRA essential oils. The stunning Denver skyline provided a perfect backdrop for the event, and everyone left with happy memories and big smiles.

I feel honored to have been part of such a remarkable event and to have captured these beautiful moments through my photography.

More Sound Off Yoga fun!

I'm excited to participate in another incredible outdoor Sound Off Yoga event like this one! Remember to search for Silent Yoga classes and events on rooftops, local parks, Red Rocks, and anywhere else you can practice yoga.

Not so senior, senior pictures https://www.tonycicconephotography.com/blog/2016/8/not-so-senior-senior-pictures A few years ago during our art-walk my son said, "Hey Dad! Look! Senior Pictures!" So I took the picture. Few years later. History repeats itself. Now he is six bricks tall and still not a senior.  This will be a new tradition where we take "senior pictures" at this spot.  Not sure if I want his real senior pictures to come anytime soon.  Kids grow so fast!  Which is a great reason to have annual family photos of your kiddos done.

I think capturing your kiddos in the same spot as they grow up is a great investment and a wonderful gift for your family.  I can picture a series of these family portraits on your hallway console table or on top of the fireplace mantel.

We are fortunate to live in an awesome state.  So many places to take your family or children's photos.  Let's set up a session at your favorite spot in Colorado.  We can capture some amazing memories!

Don't forget seasonal photos as well.  We have such an amazing and golden fall season, beautiful summers, colorful springs and fantastic winters!

Let's get that senior portrait or family photo session booked.  Feel free to contact me with any questions and to check if I am running any specials too!  :-)

ProMaster XC525 Tripod Review: Affordable & Lightweight https://www.tonycicconephotography.com/blog/2016/4/new-affordable-and-lightweight-tripod-in-my-life New Tripod in My Life

I've replaced my heavy and battle-worn tripod. It has two and a half decades of history on it. Anyway, it's time for a tripod that will not put a strain on me as I strap it to my camera bag and sling it around.

I picked up a ProMaster XC525 tripod at Mike's Camera after reading reviews and watching videos about it. The price, weight, and functionality are a great combo! I still need to mount my camera on it. However, I am digging the included ball head and built-in monopod.

I look forward to shooting long exposure scenes in the city and doing creative light effects with my CrossFit and fitness photography. Light trails and light painting are in the books, too!

Tripod Review Update

Summer 2016: I have yet to use the tripod as anticipated. However, I captured the beautiful, starry southwest night sky in Taos, NM. The tripod is stable for being a lightweight product. I zoomed into the stars with my Nikon 18-200 lens and saw no jitters.

Next, I will take it on a hike, hooked onto my camera backpack. Stay tuned, folks!

Fall 2016: This tripod worked very well when I took the Hunter's Supermoon photos. Check out the Supermoon pictures and the settings I used.
