Making of a photo shoot

Posted by divamar

About this time last year, I wrangled some of the runners from my Advanced Mindful Strides clinics and a few of my private coaching clients to play the role of amateur models for an afternoon. Joelle, Dee, Paul, Fiona, Michel and Sarah were willing subjects (aka victims) who helped me get some pics for the new website.

It was the perfect Victoria day—warm, sunny, with a soft breeze off the water. We were lucky to have a stellar photographer on board and none other than our friend and elite local runner and coach Jim Finlayson. Poor Jim! We spent most of our time howling over efforts to transform our goofy selves into something a bit more professional when the lens was pointed our way.

Thanks to Jim and my intrepid Mindful Striders who embraced the bright lights.
