I was lucky enough to work as a stills photographer on Green Street 3, a british film directed by James Nunn and starring Scott Adkins out today. It was great to be on set around london, I always enjoy the experience of working on film sets and being a stills photographer gives you a chance to see it from a different point of view. It is as you would expect a action packed movie with a great old school feel to it. Was great to be around some of the stars of the film, some established like Scott and a lot of the up and coming british talent, Kacey Barnefield, Joey Ansah, Christian Howard, Jack Doolan, Josh Meyers. Below is a small selection of stills from the film (I have over 900 images) if there is the demand I will get a web gallery put up, let me know if you want to see more. Check out the links below for scenes from the film and the trailer. Hope to shoot Scott in a gym shoot next time.
From Las Vegas we drove down to Los Angeles I had a few shoots lined up. The most challenging part of shooting abroad was adapting my kit, and shooting with a lot less equipment than I would normally use. This is great as it forces you to think about the images differently and plan lighting and angles etc but too be adaptable. Our first shoot in LA was with well known fitness model Diego Sebastian www.diegosebastianfitness.com I was thrilled to get too shoot at the famous Santa Monica Stairs. We shot a full body workout there, swell as some portrait shots. Check out my twitter @snhfoto for a preview of one of the shots. Also will have a BTS video to post soon.
Next up was a beach shoot, how can you come to LA and not shoot on the beach, a few miles along the coast from the famous Muscle Beach at Venice is Dockweiler State beach, friday morning it was nearly deserted. We were lucky enough to shoot the stunning Loni Christine www.facebook.com/LoniChristineWillison, I can’t wait for people to see these images the location and the model are stunning I am so pleased with the results. Again have a BTS video to post soon.
We were also able to squeeze in a few non planned last minutes shoots, including a 10 minute shoot racing again a setting sun on Santa Monica beach with Carla Curva in an evening dress, so will get something from that shoot up soon. Also had some down time and got too do some touristy things like visit the Hollywood, also managed to squeeze in a visit to Golds Gym Venice all in all had a blast travelling and shooting stateside, looking forward to seeing these shoots get out there, and hoping to head back out there soon.
Just wanted to write a quick blog about my recent trip to the States. After landing in LA we had to head up to Las Vegas a day early as some of my shoots had been moved forward. The road trip from LA to Vegas was great, definitely a drive everyone has to try at least once. Vegas was a mix of downtime and work, staying right on the strip we were in the middle of the hustle and bustle all weekend. The first shoot in Vegas was one that I can’t share any details till it published, but we had a blast shooting over the course of two days, there will be loads to see from this one, workout videos, BTS videos and of course the feature. We were lucky enough to shoot an awesome gym in Vegas Cit Athletic Club, a great mix of hardcore gym, MMA and crossfit check it out there http://www.cityathleticclub.com/
From there we went straight on too shoot candids of the famous Olympia Expo, run over two days it was packed both days and absolute blast, great to catch up with people and meet new people. Sorting through the hundreds of pics, XF:Sport Magazine posted up there favourite on the Facebook and will be running a feature on it in their next issue. Check out the links below to view them.
The rest of the weekend was spent sight seeing and catching up with old friends. We also managed to squeeze in a day at the breathtaking Red Rock Canyon, and couldn’t rest the chance to get some shots with the amazing surrounding and views of Nevada. Above is one them pics, watch my social media as we have a full set to post featuring Carla Curva, check out a preview here

Currently my shot of Lee Constantinou is on Healthy for Men Cover in every GNC and Holland & Barrett Stores in the UK . One of the shots from mine and Kirk Millers Model Workshop of Daniel Blackwell is on the latest XF:Sport Cover available on iTunes worldwide. And my latest cover featuring Cat Trentham for Ultrafit Magazine is available in WHSmiths stores in the UK.
I am pleased to announce snhfoto will be running its first ever group gym shoot. We are aware that a lot of people want to have a gym shoot done but it is quite intimidating to shoot in a busy gym, we have been able to book Zone Gym in north London out of hours to offer to offer you the chance to shoot in an empty gym. We have also been able to secure 5 workouts too shoot for XF:Sport magazine, so not only do you get to shoot in an empty gym you also get to become a published model. And do go one further, we have halved the price of a normal gym shoot. So this is what you will get
photo shoot in an empty gym (one of the best equipped gyms in north London)
