Solo Photoshoot - February 2022.
Enola is a top gymnast athlete. I spotted her on Instagram (@enola_michard) and her photos made me want to do photoshoots with her to freeze her artistic performances. I have always loved her poses, her dynamism and the good humor that comes out of everything she does.
It took us a few months to get along, find a date and agree on the terms. In January 2022, I suggest her to do a test session. It happened that she needed photos for one of her sponsors and we agreed on a date. For her to be confident, I suggest that she comes accompanied by the person of her choice.
When Enola arrives for the session with her mother, she was a little intimidated. To make her forget the intimidating photo studio equipment, I suggested starting with poses where I asked her to walk towards me hopping. I showed her the first results on a control screen. After 10 minutes she felt so comfortable that she offered me movements of which she has the secret. The results are stunning!
We continue like this for 2 hours between outfit changes and different jumps that she offers to me. I let her follow her inspiration, while I am focussing on managing the photo technique and the studio lighting. The resulting photos are stunning!
What a pleasure to work together! Enola and I have already agreed to redo a session when the opportunity arises.
Thank you Enola!!
