If you look at my instagram(@ncoskyphoto) you might think I only shoot fitness photography. However, I shoot a wide range of photography for clients in various industries. In June 2017, I was hired by a company to offer free professional headshots to attendees for three days at a large conference at McCormick Place in Chicago. I decided to make the most of the trip to Chicago by going out two days prior to the event. I began reaching out to my network of clients to see if they had any colleagues or friends who might be interested. I was able to line up eight fitness shoots with nine people in the five day trip in addition to my time shooting headshots at the conference.
I was able to connect with Casey Short of the Chicago Red Stars and USA Women’s National Soccer Team, NBA dancers Inna and Hannah, badass stunt woman April Sutton, Barry’s Bootcamp instructor Allie, FlyWheel Sports Instructor Dana, Stacia from Lululemon and last but not least two of my friends from Boston Deja and Deana were in town for an NPC nationally qualified event. I literally spent my entire time going from shoot to another and seeing/eating my way through Chicago in the process. It could not have been a better trip and I can’t wait to visit it again soon!
