Right Where We Want to Be: Commercial Athlete Photography

Right Where We Want to Be: Commercial Athlete Photography

Just when we were about to give up on ever putting another minute into SEO, we landed one of our favorite projects to-date and they found us through a Google image search of commercial athlete photography.  We would say most of our new clients are word-of-mouth referrals or direct networking.  We had all but given up on SEO and we never thought we’d land a dream gig from a Google image search. But here we are!

Project:

Photograph Teen Athletes for BODYARMOR SPORTS Drink

Creative Brief:

Studio portraits of teen athletes that represent post activity grit, edge, intensity, and prowess. Athletes that take their sport seriously. They have moxie and a go-to game face.  Athletes look fierce, strong, and confident. Images represent the look of a team captain, big hitter, and team leader. Image will be waist up on black seamless or textured backdrop.  Secondary image of each athlete drinking BODYARMOR.

This was a big shoot on a tight timeline. So we quickly built a team, ordered and gathered props and uniforms, and set the stage for what would be a great shoot.

Back in 2016, we wrote a blog about our dream client. We may not have listed BODYARMOR in that blog, but we should have!

Here are some images from our commercial athlete photography shoot:
