Another stunning image by Oregon-based photographer, Tyler Roemer, surfaced into my modeling portfolio this weekend. After dating Tyler for over three years now, it's essentially his portfolio of images from our travels with me in the mix somehow ––either prominently featured or second to an epic backdrop–– which is his signature style (epic landscape with a tiny athlete up-side-down).
This time, the token shot came from our backyard without even planning it. No mood boards, art directors or travel itineraries. A relaxing lakeside Sunday with friends, puppies, snacks and infinite blue skies turned into an experimental underwater photo shoot. (Perhaps a little planning went into it: underwater housing, camera, SUP boards, a wetsuit and of course SPF.)
It may be serendipitous that he likes to shoot and I like to smile, but it's taken years to embrace the constant presence of a camera, and doing things ––like diving, jumping, running up and down a beach, take hiking boots off, then on, then off–– over and over and over... Until you see the results. Until you're aware of your own strengths. Until you get a taste for where it can take you and that you're outside with your best friend.
Looking for an outdoor, athletic female model for an upcoming photo shoot? Let's chat. I know a talented photographer too.
