FFM: Is there a specific technique you use to achieve the separation of your subject from the background? Is that something you find to be important in fitness photography? ES: I either blur the background or use “rim light” that highlights the edges of the model’s body and hair. I do it almost all the time. FFM: When did you book your first major fitness client? ES: In the summer of 2009. FFM: Do you offer workshops, seminars, or one on one classes? ES: No, but I have been thinking about doing some workshops. I think I’d have a lot to offer. FFM: What would you like to accomplish in the next five years in the fitness industry? ES: Actually, I would like to move on to other genres of photography. FFM: How big a role would you say social media plays in your marketing strategy? ES: Social media is everything! Marketing is not exactly my strength, therefore I am very grateful to Facebook and Instagram. I really never had a marketing strategy pre-social media, but my business didn’t exist yet either. FFM: Where can our readers find you in social media? ES: My Facebook Page is: www.facebook.com/ evasimonphotography And my Instagram is @ evasimonphotographer.
