Should Photographers Have an Active Lifestyle?




"Exercise is a celebration of what your body can do, not a punishment for what you ate." anon.



On my latest photoshoot, I was moving around a lot for a surprisingly small space. When I am in the middle of a session, I usually don’t think about how much I move—I just do. Big spaces, small spaces, inside, outside. I’m looking for angles, examining light, trying to balance my hands, and all sorts of other things. All the while, my body is being twisted, contorted, and bent into all strange positions; and although I don’t feel the body aches and pains right away, I certainly do the next day.
