Bee Trofort-Wilson 

Do you want to create dynamic, eye-catching fitness photographs? Bee Trofort will demonstrate how she uses color and motion to bring her fitness images to life. She will discuss how she finds clients and how she produces her award winning images. 

Bee Trofort-Wilson introduces ways to simplify lighting concepts in order to create bold, dynamic portraits of athletes and models. Whether you're shooting a yoga instructor, senior portraits, or a model, learn the techniques that Bee incorporates to create strong, eye-catching imagery through long exposure portraits. From utilizing colored gels, grids, and various modifiers, Bee provides tools that you will be able to instantly incorporate within your work, no matter what field you are in.

Not all of her clients are world-class athletes, nonetheless she has mastered the skill of showcasing the abilities and talents of anyone seriously involved in fitness. She’ll show us how to highlight human effort, as well as explaining how and why she started “UBelong” and “Bee Strong”, her platforms for celebrating women in sports.

Key Takeaways:

  • Correct studio lighting and camera settings

  • How to incorporate gels and grids into sport portraits

  • How to direct your athlete/model

  • Props in relation to their sport (basketball, baseball, etc)
