Personal Trainer – Harry Watts
Personal Trainer Harry has been involved with a couple of gym clothing companies, Physiq Apparel and Vxs Gym Wear, and needed a collection of portraits that both endorsed these products and also showed off his physique.
Harry initially contacted me after seeing the photo shoots I had previously done for Personal Trainers Cailen Daly and Charlie Homles. I explained that first, we needed clear criteria as to what Harry was hoping to achieve from the session and the studio, namely what he wanted out of it and the look he was going for.
When Harry arrived at the studio it was pretty obvious that he practised what he preached. We quickly got into the portrait session. Harry rapidly got comfortable in front of the camera, and his nervousness faded. Generally, people take a little longer to relax, but not so for Harry.
The main aim of the photo shoot was to get quite a few different looks – one for each of the gym clothing companies, and few for Harry to use to show off his physique.
Unlike a normal portrait session where we are looking to get one killer shot, from this portrait session we needed to get five or six main portraits, plus a number for Harry to use for his portfolio and his Instagram feed @harrywatts93. Social media is such an important marketing tool for both individuals and companies nowadays, and, as such, should be taken very seriously.
