RALEIGH FITNESS PHOTOGRAPHY | YOGA IN THE ROAD

The Story Behind The Series

While doing dance portraits in downtown Raleigh, I really wanted to shoot in the middle of the road, but for safety issues, I couldn’t. A few months later I was asked several times to do yoga portraits. After doing several traditional shoots I wanted to come up with something unique. Going back to the road idea from the dance shoot, I started location scouting. I needed a safe place where you could focus on the pose and not on getting hit by a car. A few weeks later I found the perfect spot and “Yoga in the Road” was born. Trying to find ideas that push raleigh fitness photography to a different level is a challenge I love talking on.

They Made It Possible

Mary Yarborough, from Charlotte, was the first to come out and risk posing in the road. She helped me provide the proof-of-concept to prove I wasn’t crazy. It’s always uplifting to have people who believe in me enough to try my crazy ideas. “Yoga in the Road” was intended to be a gritty fitness series. No mats, no control over weather, just the skin and the road. during the first five shoots there has been great sunny weather, 30MPH winds, hot summer pavement, and a 40 degree rainy night. The road we are shooting on has low traffic, you do have to worry about “road rash” when falling or when loosing balance. I am look forward to adding to the series in 2018 and seeing what the new yogis bring to this Raleigh fitness series. Finally, if you would like to see my athletic portfolio, check it out here.
