Running in the Rain and Interview with Alex & Casey!

_MG_7287-EditA couple weeks ago we had the pleasure of working with Marc Leblanc from The Beauty Within Model Management.

As a personal trainer and avid runner, Marc proposed incorporating his passion of running into a photo shoot. His interest in my previous work with Allie gave me some ideas to work with.

We planned to start shooting at sunset, but Marc arrived a bit early. Rather than sit around and wait for the sun to go down, we decided to improvise for an hour. He had brought several outfits to work with and we had plenty of time so pulled out the camera and got started.

_MG_7256-EditRather than focus on Marc, we decided to highlight the products he was using instead. For the time that we were shooting before the sun went down, we used only natural light. We previously set up the lights for the shots we planned on getting once the sun went down.

After getting very wet (and salty) from the waves as the tide came in, the sun was going down and we decided to mix it up a bit. We had no running water so we had to get creative as to how we made our rain.


I had Casey with me as well as Dan Mateus shooting BTS (see below). After filling up some 5-gallon buckets with sea-water, Casey stood on top of a step-ladder to splash Marc as he ran by._MG_7410
