Outside Magazine, a national active/outdoors/lifestyle magazine, was one of my little obsessions back in high school when I started dreaming of travels and adventures...
So when I was contacted last Monday to have photos taken of me running around Richmond, I quickly said YES!!
For the photo shoot, I met the talented and award-winning travel + documentary photographer, Michael Hanson (check out his blog HERE) over at Belle Island in Richmond. Check out some of his cool projects and magazine covers...
We ended up taking photos for about 1 or 2 hours.
If you have ever wondered what a running photo shoot is like, just imagine running back and forth a bunch of times in one spot. I was SOAKED in sweat by the end!
But it was SO much fun!!
Here are some of the highlights:
I learned that to get better running photos, you can lengthen your stride and kick at your butt to make it look like you're moving faster. It was tough work and felt a little unnatural, I wish I'd been able to practice a little more..but I guess I already get plenty of running practice and should know what I'm doing by now haha.
The editor still has to decide which (if any) photos to use in the magazine, so I'll keep you all posted on if I end up being published or not!
If it all works out, my photo will be in the October 2012 issue of Outside Magazine :)
Have you ever had a special experience like this before?
