Washboard Abs & Fashion

You know when someone tells you that they’re a personal trainer and you can’t help but think… “That’s nice, but why would I train with someone who’s 20 lbs over weight? It’s like getting a haircut from someone with a mullet.” Well this obviously isn’t the case with Hannah. Trust me, this lady knows her stuff and if you’re willing to put the work in (she’s very good at kicking your butt) you might just get abs like hers. She smiles the whole time and, by the way, will look more hot/fashionable in her gym clothes than most people look on the street. She actually holds a degree in fashion and designed for Narcissist clothing for a few years.

While she has you doing burpees and lunges across the gym floor, she’ll be entertaining you with tales from Aerial silks class or hosting Japanese talk shows. She’s extremely passionate, committed and caring. If you happen to be looking for a trainer I highly recommend Hannah.  She does privates and also teaches like a million classes.

Photography geek note:

Lately I’ve been having a little back issue, so I’ve taken to leaving the heavy studio lights and opting for my Quantum QFlash. For one thing, It’s a lot more compact and less wight to lug around. It also has a small soft box that I love. On this particular shoot, Hannah was standing in a hallway and I used the opposite wall as an enormous bounce; I love doing this. The first thing I do when I scout a location is evaluate the ambient light and surfaces like walls and ceilings that will make for great reflectors or diffusers.  This works best with neutral coloured walls, unless you’re getting creative. In the last image she’s standing at the top of a stairwell and balancing on the railings (seriously not recommended for the average model). I placed my quantum at the bottom of the stairs and back-lit the heck out of her. The wall behind me acted as a fill light and with proper exposure we get these results. There’s a lot of flare that I really like and seems to be in style now. If you wanted to set up a similar shoot but eliminate the flare, you could use fabrics, flags and Cinefoil (really expensive black aluminum foil) to flag off the light until you get the effect you want.

TYPO #11

“Sometimes someone will call and ask to speak to the mechanic. I’ll say that I can pass along the message. And then he’ll say ‘Let me speak to the man.”

Sandy Spicer, owner and operator of Nic’s garage

Thanks so much to Nic’s Garage, Rebecca, Randall, Amelia and Matilda!

This is the last TYPO from the 2011 series. Thank you to everyone involved.

I’m still working on next year’s show and  looking for real life scenarios. Does anyone know a hard core biker dude who’s a tea fiend? How about a vegetarian Ultimate fighter?
