I was hooked up with the trainer, Aaron Watson owner of A-Train Fitness (www.atrainfitness.net). He works with many different people but one of his clients was of particular interest. Boxer DJ Frain. I met them at the gym a week before the shoot to scope out locations where we could possibly shoot. In walks DJ. He walks with confidence but doesn’t have an in-your-face kind of attitude. Nice warm smile and happy to do whatever it took to get a good shot. The poor man worked out for a number of hours straight between the boxing and the lifting, biking and dips for all the variations of shots we did. I need you sweaty for this one. And off he’d go to get sweaty for me. I love working with dedicated athletes.
It was a fun shoot and I think we got some good stuff. Check out the photos and leave a comment to let me know what you think.
