New Work – Editorial for WW Magazine
March 1, 2019
Before Christmas, I was commissioned to photograph Boxer, Adam Buckner in an editorial for WW Magazine. Adam has been using Weightwatchers plans alongside a training regimen at a boxing gym to aid him in fitness and weight loss.
We shot at Adam’s boxing gym during the evening and had to work around ongoing training sessions. As a result, I used only one light with a large parabolic diffused umbrella. The gym was also in the middle of a refurb so this presented the challenge of capturing wide dynamic images without including building materials in the frame. The rustic vibe added to the shoot in some of the images with the bare concrete and unfinished wood providing natural textures and interesting backgrounds. As well as modern equipment we found some old punchbags and jump ropes which worked well as props with a bit more patina and were complementary to the colour palette of the space.
