I’ve had two shoots with Nick Cosky thus far, once individually, and once in a group/studio season. In both cases, he is the real all-star of the shoot.
First and foremost, he makes you feel comfortable. He talks to you like you’re an old friend which eases any nerves surrounding your shoot. He also reminds us (in the case of fitness photos) how hard we can be on ourselves as fitness instructors, and encourages you to release that criticism for the time that you work with him. This, in both cases, helped to make the shoots fun. He gives you the floor to present ideas and get in your own comfort zones- either moving through your individual workouts or simply striking your favorite poses. Throughout the shoot he gives positive feedback and direction. He makes you feel like a rock star, even when the shoot starts to feel like a workout! He presents ideas for you, too, demonstrating his expertise in the field without being overbearing.
Most importantly, he makes the shoot feel natural. In his words “smile, you’re making it look like that (exercise) is easy to do!” He lets you show off your own personality while capturing you in the best light and totally in your element.
And the best part? You have your photos within 24 hours so essentially the entire process includes instant satisfaction. Nick Cosky doesn’t disappoint.
