Recent work for Primal Yoga & Pilates Specialist Keri Lincoln

One of my recent non-wedding commissions was some Primal Yoga Photography for ‘The Elastic Lady’ Keri Lincoln – whose personality and charm are only bettered by her incredible flexibilty. I almost expected her to arrive in a small suitcase –¬† like a circus act when we met at Liverpool’s Baltic Triangle for the shoot. I’ve never been up close and personal to a Yoga instructor before (yes, I can hear you laughing already!), but Keri and I have worked closely together once before – on a very special day! ūüėČ

Meeting up at The Baltic Triangle, we used the skate park as location number one, where Keri showed me a set of moves from one of her Yoga / Pilates lessons. Impressive stuff. Especially barefoot on cold concrete on a not-so-warm day in Liverpool!

After lunch we carried on shooting in Camp & Furnace – in the gallery upstairs. The staff there were very helpful, and just let us get on with things for an hour or so. Thanks guys!

From Camp & Furnace, it was off to Grafton Street and The Old Higson’s Brewery for location three. Keri was still in full stretch with her martial arts-esque moves. Impressive to watch, especially ‘on the street’…

By now the sun had moved around, so we were back to the skate park for more gritty, urban images. Not normally my usual style, these images were shot on my lovely Nikon D750’s and processed through Capture One for a very specific look.


Keri’s website has just gone live!¬† You can see it HERE¬† And….though I say it myself, the design work looks great, and my images really work as part of the branding ūüėČ

If you’re in the Liverpool / Ormskirk / Southport area, why not check Keri’s website and book some classes for yourself. She really is ‘The Elastic Lady’. So…will I be attending one of Keri’s classes? Nah, I’ll be watching her online tutorials from the sanctity of my settee, with a doughnut… ūüėČ
