Swimwear Photography Pt 1

Swimwear shoot with models Xiomara Colon Velez and Gabriele De Hoyos in Puerto Rico, shot by Dwayne Moore.

Destination shoots have to be my all time favorite thing to do within the field of photography. As a photographer, being able to travel to new locations, opens up a new side to the thought process, allowing the creative juices to flow in a unique way. Visiting other areas gives me the opportunity to create on beautiful natural backdrops and to meet some interesting people. This was my second trip to Puerto Rico in which I was commissioned to shoot for a magazine on one day and a fashion line on the next. Due to the overcast when we landed, I scheduled the production time for 6AM. Limited on lights we were able to knock out these images with 1 Profoto head, a reflector board, and an amazing team. The models made my job easy and the hair / makeup team were stellar. Our studio is in Buford, Georgia and I am looking forward to knocking out some amazing images in this gorgeous state.

Stay creative.

What I learned from Kenneth’s Photo session

When I first met Kenneth, he was an ambitious runway model that also won a few international modeling contests. After a year of success within the fashion industry, I received another phone call asking for my assistance. He packed on some muscle, transitioned into the world of fitness and furthermore, he made me rethink my own lifestyle habits. I couldn’t believe this little guy came back in the studio looking like Captain America! He became a serious fitness model.

I only had one question, what the heck did you do? Kenneth turned to me and said “eat clean, drop the liquor, eat often, get enough sleep, and make time to workout.” During this time he also spent time practicing his modeling poses as you can see here. After the shoot I was left with one major thought. If I want to continue doing what I love, I’ll need to make time for my body and health. Shooting people like this will send you straight to the gym. Needless to say, I’m getting in way more veggies and water each day and making good use of my LA Fitness membership. Thanks Kenneth!

Stay strong.
