Caitlin Logue's Fitness & Lifestyle Photoshoot https://www.tonycicconephotography.com/blog/2019/4/caitlins-fitness-lifestyle-photo-shoot-denver-rino-art-district Caitlin Logue Fitness Photoshoot.

Who is Caitlin Logue?

Caitlin is a gorgeous NPC Bikini Competitor and fitness coach. She is extremely fit and definitely a fitness inspiration! She motivates people through her instagram posts and stories by sharing healthy food recipes, life experiences and overall fitness motivation!

I'd like to do a fitness and lifestyle shoot!

Absolutely! She came to me wanting some fitness and lifestyle photos prior to hitting the stage. The ideas was to have traditional gym photos and lifestyle photos in an urban setting.

"Hi there! I love your work and would like to schedule a photo shoot...I'd like to do a fitness and lifestyle shoot. One scene in the gym and other outdoors."

We settled on doing the photo shoot in Denver's vibrant RiNo Art District. We could of shot there all day! So many colorful places to shoot in her BoHo and Lululemon outfits. She did an amazing job at striking those poses. Each pose accentuated her well muscled and defined physique.

Rocking that stage at the NPC Mile High Showdown

Caitlin rocked the NPC Mile High Showdown and placed second in her class. I am happy that all her hard work and determination really paid off. I wish her the best in her fitness journey!

"So grateful for the opportunity to compete at the 2018 Mile High Showdown. I placed 2nd in Open Class E and 2nd in Novice Class C. I’m super happy with the physique that I brought to the stage. A huge congratulations to each and every competitor who competed yesterday. I’m looking forward to hearing feedback from the judges and wow!"

These photos represent a different part of me

Each of these photos represents a different part of me and it’s so neat to see those aspects of my life captured in a visual aesthetic. I have spent too much of my life feeling insecure and afraid of failure until the day I decided to become the author of my own life. From that moment, everything changed.

In a way, I see that change in these photos and so if you are reading this, my message to you is to own your life. There’s never a time better than the present to become who you want to be. - Caitlin Logue

Making Shapes with Mindful Jess

This post is about truly showing that you can play anywhere at any age. This Denver yoga teacher and practitioner does it elegantly as she accentuates each feminine line on her slender and fit body. Her beautiful yoga shapes are mesmerizing and her flow captivating. The stories she tells are inspiring and beautifully profound.

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

Jessica reached out to me to help her with a new project called Body Mantra by Christina Marie's Mantra. Which was held at NATIV Lounge & Hotel on February 1, 2020, in Denver, Colorado.

She loves the way I capture the expression of body movement through my photography. And what a perfect way to start off the New Year by capturing her freedom of expression with a fine art nude yoga photoshoot. What a fun time with the gold body paint and her nude yoga poses!

She made my top 20 yoga pics for 2022!

Take a look at the beautiful golden magic we created.

Sparkly Face Mask Photo Shoot

2020 started off amazing! Then people did the broomstick challenge and opened a gateway to an alternate universe. Anyway, I asked Jess if she would help me document social distancing and face mask life during this coronavirus pandemic.

I was a photojournalist many years ago. Thought I would capture this crazy time of covid-19 with a focus on artists and athletes and how they are expressing themselves. I'm absolutely glad she got to go out and express herself through her bendy and energetic movement.

Yoga in her Spiritual Playground

We shot this yoga lifestyle photo session in her spiritual and creative space in Downtown Denver. Her Denver studio in LoHi has several natural light spaces to work in. Actually, her entire space is illuminated with beautifully soft natural light.

This session shows how we incorporated natural light to bring out her soft, sensual, and powerful goddess form. Speaking of form. She was an elite gymnast and it really shows in her graceful form and movements.

"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

How to Take Amazing Yoga Photos for Instagram (2022) https://www.tonycicconephotography.com/blog/2018/1/denver-yoga-photographer

Updated July 29, 2022

7 Yoga Photography Tips for an Amazing Yoga Photoshoot in 2022

7 Yoga photography tips: Take the best yoga photos!

1. How do I get the best yoga images for Instagram?

Book a yoga photo shoot with a professional yoga photographer! No need to worry about setting the timer on your iPhone and running back and forth to check if you captured the perfect selfie shot or not.

No more yoga selfies!  Don't be afraid. Breathe, make shapes, and let the photographer guide you through your session as they capture your beautiful shapes.

2. How do I get ready for my shoot?

Practice the yoga poses you picked for the photo shoot for a few weeks before the photo session.

Pro Tip: Try to hold your breath for a few seconds while holding your pose. This 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 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.

4. What are the best yoga poses for photoshoot?

I recommend any pose that you are comfortable doing. Also, I encourage you to try out new and more difficult poses.

Favorite photogenic yoga poses:

• One-Legged Wheel Pose (Eka Pada Urdhva Dhanurasana)

• Dancer Pose (Natarajasana)

• King Pigeon Pose (Eka Pada Rajakapotasana)

5. How do I get inspired for my yoga photoshoot ideas?

Follow and study other yogis that you love and inspire you on their social media yoga accounts. Save the images that you want to use into a collection for your yoga photoshoot ideas. Bring your list of yoga poses to assure your shoot goes smoothly.

6. Should I bring someone to my yoga shoot?

Yes! Definitely bring a yoga friend to your photo session for support. I do offer a discount if they decide they want to shoot with you.

Bonus: They can help with any props and yoga poses.

7. How do I get my new yoga photos to look good on social media?

Ask your photographer to size and format them for social media posts.

Instagram Size & Dimensions

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

Personally, I use 3000px instead of 1080px for my clients. It’s convenient to have one set of images that you can use on any platform and send to get printed. 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.

Why do you take yoga photos?

Photographing yoga shapes in Colorado is always breathtaking and surreal. Now creating art, while seeing nature's art form right before your eyes is a mind-blowing and jaw-dropping experience!

Oftentimes changing and out of our control. This adds to the excitement and unique photographs we create. Remember we can do a yoga photo anywhere.

As you can see, this goes beyond having captivating photos of you when we do a yoga portrait shoot. This is a special and ethereal experience that will forever be a part of you.

I'm blessed with the opportunity to capture my love for the mountains, beautiful shapes, and elegant movements. I put my soul into this type of photography to create memories and give you something beautiful to frame and hang on your wall. Of course, let's not forget that you can share these inspiring photos with all your friends and family on social media.

One of the best yoga poses to photographBlack and White Yoga PoseSymmetrical yoga poses are nice.

How do I set up a yoga photo shoot with you?

Feel free to contact me to set up your outdoor yoga portrait session. Have fun with your yoga poses, while I create photographs that look like they are right out of a Yoga Journal magazine, or Lululemon and Alo Yoga catalog.

Heck! You can make this super fun by bringing along your yoga friends.

Acroyoga sounds good to me! Got silks? Let's do Aerial Yoga & Dance too! Dreaming of Yoga in the mountains? How about beautiful shapes on a Colorado mountaintop?

Special group yoga photography pricing is available to the yoga community. Perfect for yoga teachers and yoga students! The more the merrier!

Yoga Event on the RooftopYoga Event on the RooftopRooftop yoga with Sound Off yoga.

Do you photograph yoga studio classes or yoga events?

Yes! Want professional yoga photography of your yoga classes, yoga retreats, or special yoga events? After Yoga on the Rocks or Yoga Rocks the Park would be awesome and extraordinarily fun!

Contact me for yoga studio and event rates for fresh and breathtaking content for your social media, blog, and website.

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!

Hunter's Supermoon in Denver https://www.tonycicconephotography.com/blog/2016/10/hunters-supermoon-in-denver As a Denver, Colorado Photographer, it's important that I capture natures 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.  

The last time I photographed the moon was 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 absolutely thankful for their patience!  Anyway, I found mystic and adventure of the lunar eclipse shoot due to the fact I used film!  I  had no idea what the results were going to look like.  No experience or guidance.  Just went out there and click clicked away!  Let the drums roll.  I took my film to get developed and most of my prints looked like a darn flashlight in the dark.  Fast forward to today...well I did something right this round!

I used a variety of camera settings to capture the six moons shown in the photo.  I'm quite thankful for the age of digital.  Having live view and being able to see your results and adjust accordingly makes me do the happy dance.

Camera Gear:  Nikon D7000 Crop Sensor and a NIkkor 18-200mm lens.  Nicely nestled on my new tripod!

Amazing Outdoor Yoga Class on the Rooftop (Denver, CO) https://www.tonycicconephotography.com/blog/2016/9/denver-outdoor-rooftop-yoga-class-and-yoga-photography Yoga classes on the rooftop!

I provided professional event photography services for an extraordinary outdoor yoga event in Downtown Denver.  The Denver outdoor yoga class was hosted by Airbnb and the event experience provided by WHISK.  All the fun was held in the warm open air on the rooftop at the Galvanize building right off the vibrant and lush Platte River.

Today, I recollect all the warm smiles and the inspiring people that participated.  Sound Off Experience provided the tranquil and boundless music!  Audra Robinson of Inspired Wellness made her rounds with delightful samples of doTERRA essential oils.  She also went around sharing her yoga pose expertise.  The Denver city skyline offered a breathtaking and colorful backdrop.  I saw people leave with super happy memories and gargantuan smiles!  I'm glad I was given the opportunity to work this extraordinary Airbnb outdoor yoga event and provide the memorable yoga photography.

More Sound Off Yoga fun!

Can't wait to do another fun outdoor Sound Off Yoga event like this again!  Be sure to look them up for Silent Yoga classes and events on the rooftop, local parks, Red Rocks and just about anywhere you can make shapes.

Hire me as your event photographer for vibrant memories!

As your Denver Event, Yoga & Fitness Photographer, I will elevate your presence and inspire with images that have a passionate and powerful impact!

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!  :-)

New, affordable and lightweight tripod in my life! 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, 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 on it.  The price, weight and functionality is a great combo!  I have not mounted my camera on it yet.  However, I am digging the included ball head and built in monopod.

I am looking forward to shooting long exposure scenes in the city and doing some creative light effects with my crossfit and fitness photography.  Light trails and light painting are in the books too!

Update on the tripod will be in my blog and Facebook: Tony Ciccone Photography.

Enjoy the week!

Red ProMaster XC525 camera tripod-Real World ReviewProMaster XC525Yay! New tripod.

Update

Summer 2016 - I have not used the tripod as anticipated.  However, I was able to capture the beautiful southwest starry 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 did not see any jitters.

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

Fall 2016 - This tripod work very well when I took photos of the Hunter's Supermoon.  Check out the photos and the settings I used. 

Tripod shots

Here are a few long exposure & stationary shots from the tripod.  Been wanting to do long exposure shots of water.
