Tips On How To Photograph Gym Workouts

Gym workouts are something that can be both fun and healthy at the same time if you make it. However, if you’re a bit out of shape like me then you might just stick behind the camera and consider that your workout for the day. In the world we live in today where social media platforms have begun to play a huge role in marketing and branding, there has been more demand for content. Most brands these days want content that fit the personality of their brand itself to target a certain demographic and as a result, you find yourself as a photographer in some really odd places. In this article, we will be discussing some tips as to how you can properly execute a shoot in one of these odd places, such as a gym. I was recently requested to do a series of gym photoshoots and I must say, at first when I was requested I was a bit confused as I’ve never actually done a photoshoot of this nature before. Nonetheless, there’s always a first time for everything. As the shoot progressed I learned a bit more about shooting in a situation such as this one, which I will now happily share with you.

1. Don’t Feel Intimidated

Naturally, a gym is a pretty weird place for a photographer to be so as soon as you take your camera out be prepared for all eyes to be on you. Keep in mind that the general reason for most individuals to visit the gym is to either keep in shape or to get in shape. As a result of those who are working to get in shape, they might be a bit nervous and worried that you’re going to capture them at their not so best point. If possible, reassure them as to why you’re there and who your main model will be for the day. Informing the people around you may best help to reduce some of the eyes on you as well as help your shoot move a little bit faster.


It was fun sharing these quick tips with you and I hope they come in handy. Don’t let the fear of shooting in public spaces hinder you from capturing the shot you need. At the end of the day, your craft is also important and providing the client with quality work should be your number one priority. Until next time, thank you for stopping by!
