Fitness Book

It sometimes amazes me how long it takes before a project is completely finished.  Case in point:  Just over a year ago I shot a series of images (about 150) for a fitness book called “Super Body, Super Brain“; an exercise program that combines balance, coordination, and strength training.  It was a two day shoot here in NYC.  Very long, and fun, days taking photographs of the author, Michael Gonzalez-Wallace, in different poses and his portrait for the cover.  For those of you who have shot books like this, you know that it can be quite tedious.  I have to say though, this was quite the opposite.  I had a fantastic crew and client, shot in a beautiful studio (Bathhouse Studio), ate delicious food, listened to great music and laughed a lot.  The book just came out last week and is in bookstores nation wide.  It was well worth the wait!

Congratulations to Michael and HarperCollins on their new book.
