Sometimes we meet people who are just amazingly ‘fit’, and Myschon is definitely one of the fittest females I’ve ever seen or met. After she initially contacted me upon signing with Sports Unlimited in Portland, we were able to connect within a week for her FIRST shoot ever!

Weight lifting, Fitness competition, Track & Field, Kickboxing, and overall training are her strong points so I set out to challenge her and bring out the best images possible. There definitely wasn’t a dull moment in today’s shoot after we had hair and makeup ready Myschon was ‘at my fingertips’ and ready to mix n’ match  outfits and some new Adidas boxing gloves she picked up just for this shoot.

Since last July when I returned from working as a supervisor at the World Series of Poker, I have been working towards becoming a ‘preferred’ photographer for the Northwest’s top modeling agencies. In the last three months I have finally had the opportunity to network with the top three NW agencies: SMG (Seattle Models Guild/cleints Nordstrom, Macy’s, etc), Sports Unlimited (client list: Nike, Adidas USA, REI, etc.) and Heffner Management in Seattle. Here’s a sample shoot with SMG model, Mike Rose, shot around downtown Seattle and Lake Union.

Although Mike was 45min late to his appointment, we made it work and did a little shopping downtown at J.Crew and Urban Outfitters before jumping into his session. Somehow we were able to nail six different outfits in about two hours, and hopefully we’ll get to do some athletic stuff later this week (Mike played baseball for about 10 years). We’ll hope that his agency loves the images and wants to keep me in their loop! -JM
