My latest project of sports photo editing has been exclusively focused on McHugh BJJ and Kickboxing students, coaches, and the professor. I’ve been fortunate to be able to rely on the amazing skills of McHugh’s official photographer, Giulliana Fonseca. She has kindly allowed me to use her photos and I give credit when I’m aware the photos are hers. Since I’m not as much of a photographer as I am an illustrator and fine artist, it’s nice to be able to choose well focused and composed photos to edit.
Giulliana gets up close to the athletes and since she is a blue belt herself in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, she knows the sport well. Giulliana introduces herself on her website with the following:
“Based in the Philadelphia Area, I provide photography, videography, and graphic services to clients throughout the tri-state area.
New clients can expect an intimate, hilarious, and fun session. I specialize in providing dynamic, vibrant, and crisp finished product while delivering a memorable experience for everyone.”
Giulliana’s style is clean and crisp and she focuses on several specialties, including portrait services, wedding and event photography. But I think she particularly excels in fitness marketing and competitive sports coverage.
In addition to photography, Giulliana is an illustrator. Lately, she has been marketing her services on Fiverr to turn your selfie into a creative illustration. Contact her through Fiverr to turn your own selfie into a fun and unique image.
The best way to check out Giulliana’s work is to visit her website or her Facebook page.
I love this quote as it perfectly says what I feel about art and creativity, as well as my fitness journey. I’ve been adding to my website project, McHugh BJJ Sports Photo Edits on a pretty regular basis. I wanted to highlight the latest picture in the gallery, in which my kickboxing friends are featured in a fighting stance. I think it speaks for itself.
Along with revamping my website, one of my goals this year has been to start uploading to Shutterstock and Dreamstime again with micro stock images. That means I’m playing with UltraFractal and creating some pretty eye candy like the spiral above. Although it isn’t cutting edge “Art” with a capital A, it’s fun to create these pictures and they make me happy. And I guess that’s what it’s all about.
An interesting mathematically based image, I created this Apollonian Gasket with UltraFractal. It is available on Shutterstock and Dreamstime. I’m not sure how I feel about using the watermarked image versus no watermark at all but this is the way it is for now.
After a long time away, I’m finally getting back to blogging by revamping my whole website. It’s still a process and I have more that I want to do but here is the latest. I’ve set up a Project Page with separate creative projects listed. Since I do many different things, using different media and styles, this seems like a good way to keep similar items together. I’m hoping it even keeps me a little better focused on working in series and sticking with things.
