Athletic, Fitness, Bodybuilding, Nike Ad Shoot

Got what it takes to shoot the next Nike Ad?
Or for the Cover of the new Fitness Magazine?

Well, Here's your Chance!

This Event will feature fitness models and bodybuilders.
As well as some athletic models.

We have been fortunate to rent a fully enclosed parking structure in Downtown Los Angeles!!

There will be multiple Models there!!

So here is your opportunity to work with Space and Lighting to Create an Athletic, Sports, Commercial Ad or Theme of Fitness.

Photographers arrive on Time! Setup and be ready to shoot because this is definitely going to be an awesome shoot you do not want to miss!

We are doing our best to have at least 10 models at this event! With a minimum of 2:1 photographers to model ratio.

There is enough space to setup as many stations as needed, also staircases. Plenty of awesome spots everywhere for everyone! Photographers, please bring lighting if you can!

Now for the rules! Each photographer MUST be willing to sign a liability waiver in order to attend, nothing fancy or complicated, just a form that states that since we are using space in a manner for which it was not intended we release property owners of any and all liability. No big deal.

Cost goes to cover rental, MUA kit fees and expenses.

Confirmed Models as of now... List is subject to change.

There will be many models at this shoot here are just a few:

Model 1

Model 2

Model 3

Model 4


PHOTOGRAPHERS: Bring Triggers, 3 ways, and Extension Cords!!

    Anybody who Model Justin Patrick. The big dude with the brown hair. The one "punching" me in the one photograph. He has yet to receive any photographs. It is really disrespectful considering he was kind enough to spend 5 hours working with us that day. Please send him some photographs. [masked]

      Interesting, which email is right? Either he has two emails and only check one or maybe the one he gave Ethan is wrong? Can you verify Ethan?

      This look like a mess. I guess I got lucky and leave early before things got bad. When I was there, I thought we had enough models but then we had many photographers that don't come prepared.

      Hopefully, provided we have no last minute flakers - And I apply that to photographers and models. Might be two models to one photographer if photogs flake...

      BTW, this is really no different from shooting regular models, (These ones are just in better shape) Although higher contrast lighting is generally employed. But only by personal choice!

      November 7, 2013

    • designdog

      just focus on the event at hand

      November 7, 2013

  • enrique m.

    Ethan you posted "added location" r going to b two locations or just one for the whole event. Thank you

    November 7, 2013

      Just the one location. Because it is private property and there are certain rules. I will be emailing each attendee the exact address.

      November 7, 2013

  • Gene

    Ethan, obviously this is a 'parking structure', but can we pull our cars up and set up near them to make hauling gear easier? Thanks - just RSVP'd yes.

      Of course you can! :D

      November 7, 2013

  • designdog

    Could this cover sort of a 'Nike' athletic style shoot for shoes or athletic wear or is this body building only? I could shoot both. No matter. just asking.

    November 4, 2013

    • designdog

      hmm. What are you trying to do? Make me work that day?? geez. Thought. You know what would be good for ME anyway is to figure out - not now - but later - who SOME of the models are and maybe get some cool athletic gear - Like running shoes and gatorade. trademark athletic brands maybe from Target and shoot them in that! make it a product / athletic brand promotional ad type of shoot. I'd dig that if we could pull it off.
