Sydney Yoga Photographer: Inhale Arms Up

Sydney Yoga Photographer: Inhale Arms Up

I first met Leanne through a mutual friend, and we immediately got to talking about yoga. A fellow yogi mama, Leanne has been teaching for 16 years in the US and Australia. She's a wealth of knowledge and she's now using this knowledge to mentor other yoga teachers through new new platform, Inhale Arms Up. I love how as yoga teachers we're constantly learning, and striving to grow and I know that Leanne is going to help so many teachers!

We got together to do these photos on a sunny autumn day at Ballast Point Park in Balmain. Leanne was such a great model - graceful and light hearted. Here are a whole bunch more photos if you'd like to take a peak...

Northern Beaches Yoga Photographer: Nicole Grace Yoga

Northern Beaches Yoga Photographer: Nicole Grace Yoga

On the day of my shoot with Nicole, the forecast was for rain, and having just had a shoot get rained out, I was wondering if we should reschedule. Being more brave, or maybe more trusting than I was, Nicole said, "let's go for it!" She was completely right. When we got to our location on the Northern Beaches, the cloudy afternoon was the perfect fit for Nicole's branding. And as the storm did eventually roll in, our view of it was amazing. We got back to our car just in time to avoid getting drenched. Perfect timing.

Eastern Suburbs Yoga Photographer: Amy

You know when you meet someone for the first time and you have so much in common that you can just talk and talk and talk? Well that's what it was like when I met Amy to chat about photography; we of course got on to the topic of yoga, and teaching yoga and yoga trainings and our favourite teachers and on and on. We did eventually get to the topic of yoga photography, and Amy had the brilliant idea to use Nielsen Park as our location. It's a great spot because we got so much variety from just the one session.

Vancouver Yoga Photographer: Persia

Vancouver Yoga Photographer: Persia

I've known Persia since way back in the day when we were both yoga teachers at what is now Egg of the Universe. A fellow Vancouver girl in Sydney, Persia was someone I looked up to as a yoga teacher and as an all around inspiring person. After 10 years of living in Australia, she recently returned to Vancouver and we got to reconnect while I was there in August. I suggested to her that we do a last minute photoshoot at the beach, and so we spent my last evening in Vancouver at Spanish Banks. With no time to plan or overthink, we simply went with the flow and it was great. You can find out more about Persia here, and if you happen to be in Vancouver right now I highly, highly recommend you get to one of her classes ASAP!

Sydney Yoga Photographer: Egg of the Universe part 2

As promised, here is part 2 from my photoshoot with Egg of the Universe Yoga. These yogis are each so unique and inspiring, and working with them individually and as a group was amazing. If you live in Sydney, or you ever visit Sydney, you should definitely try to get to their classes (look for Bryony, Kate, Sarah and Aimee on the timetable). And if you're after your very own yoga photos, shoot me an email at info@gabrielafearn.com.au!

Egg of the Universe Yoga Studio and Wholefoods Cafe is an absolutely magical place. It's like a little oasis in the big city; you can go to a yoga class that's sure to leave you feeling happy and centred, and then enjoy a wholesome meal while sitting under the elm tree. What's not to love?

Sydney Yoga Photographer: Sarah Owen Yin

I recently had the pleasure of attending Sarah Owen's Yin Yoga Teacher Training. Over the course of 3 weekends I learned so much; Sarah truly is a wealth of knowledge.

Shortly thereafter we got together to do another photoshoot (you can our first photoshoot here). Sarah brought along several props and set up a beautiful floral background; I just love the extra dimension they add to her photos. Here are some of my favourites...

Over the last couple of years, I've had the privilege of photographing many different yoga teachers. After working with both men and women, new and advanced practitioners, in studios and at outdoor locations, I've picked up a few tips that I thought might be helpful to anyone who is preparing for a yoga photoshoot. So here they are, my top tips to get the most out of your experience:

Sydney Yoga Photographer: Bryony

I recently had the chance to do a quick mini session with Bryony, Co-Director of Egg of the Universe Yoga studio and wholefoods café in Rozelle. Bryony needed a photo for a feature in a new yoga magazine, and as always, I was very excited to walk into a newsagent and see one of my photos in print!

Sydney Yoga Photographer: Cath

Sydney Yoga Photographer: Cath

Way back in the day, on my very first trip to Sydney, I found a yoga studio that I loved. I started practising there most weekdays, and Cath was one of my first teachers. I hadn't seen her in quite a while so it was lovely to have the chance to catch up and take photos of her in this beautiful, light-filled studio.

A Yoga Maternity Session: Jemima

A Yoga Maternity Session: Jemima

It's been on my bucket list for a while now to do a yoga maternity session for someone, so when I got Jemima's email I actually squealed with excitement. When we met up last weekend I was expecting to capture her doing simple standing poses like Warrior 1, 2 etc. Boy was I surprised to find that at 36 weeks pregnant Jemima's practice still includes backbends, inversions, you name it! Photographing her and her baby belly was a dream. I'm so excited for her and her partner and can't wait to hear news of their baby's arrival very soon.

Sydney Yoga Photographer: Filter Free Yoga

When my friend Stella emailed me to tell me about her new project, Filter Free Yoga, I was immediately excited. Their mission is simple: Inspiration - not intimidation. Honest stories behind the perfectly imperfect humans who practice yoga. Real #filterfree kinda vibes. 

To launch the instagram page, Stella and her Filter Free partner organised a yin yoga class with a small group of students. While they practised, I tiptoed around the room taking photos and capturing authentic moments as they happened.

Be sure to check out @filterfreeyoga to read some wonderfully honest and inspiring stories. P.s. I'll be featured there soon with my own story!

Sydney Yoga Photograher: Jan

In the weeks before leaving Sydney, I managed to squeeze in a handful of yoga sessions. It was a busy couple of weeks but so much fun to work with so many amazing yogis. Jan is one of them; he's an inspiring yoga teacher and nutritionist working all over Sydney. You can find out more about him here.

Vancouver Family Photographer

This time next week the four of us will be on a plane heading to Vancouver! And we are all very excited about it (not so excited about the 15 hour flight though)!

I haven't been home since Christmas 2014 so I cannot wait to indulge in all my Vancouver favourites like: seeing my friends and family not on a computer screen, going to Jericho to swim and play, getting pirate packs at White Spot, shopping at Anthropologie and I could go on and on...

While I'm there I would love to do family, maternity, newborn or yoga shoots. Vancouver is so beautiful at this time of year and I'm looking forward to planning some fun shoots that incorporate the amazing scenery. If you're interested, send me an email at gabrielafearn@gmail.com

See you soon Vancouver friends!

Sydney Yoga Photographer: Kate

Kate is a fellow North American yoga teacher here in Sydney, as well as a gifted painter. She had so many great ideas for our session, and our 2 hours together flew by. These are just some of my favourites!

Sydney Yoga Photographer: Sarah Owen

This is Sarah Owen, an amazing yoga teacher who specialises in yin yoga. She was needing a couple of photos for an article in Australia Yoga Journal, so we met up after I taught my weekly class and did this super quick shoot. The photo is in the July issue of Australian Yoga Journal, if you'd like to check it out :)

Sydney Yoga Photographer: Yasu

Most of the time, my clients find me via word of mouth but Yasu found me via a google search, which is pretty darn cool. The magic of the internet never ceases to amaze me.

Anyhow... Yasu is a school teacher AND a yoga teacher. She's also an avid world traveler and was giving me a serious case of wanderlust with the tales of all of the places she's been. She has just started teaching classes in Japanese, so if you're looking for a Japanese yoga class, she's your teacher! You can find her website here

Featured: DOYOUYOGA

I was absolutely thrilled to wake up to an email from DOYOUYOGA letting me know that I was featured in an article titled '10 Absolutely Amazing Yoga Photographers.' What an honour!

I did my first yoga class when I was 15, which means that I've been practising (with varying levels of commitment) for half my life. And I have ALWAYS been the-girl-with-a-camera. Yoga and photography truly are my passions, and combining the two... Well that's been an unexpected twist that I am so grateful for. 

Sydney Yoga Photographer: Modo Yoga

Late last year I got an email from a fellow yoga teacher; she was opening up a new yoga studio and needed photos for their website. I think it was the last shoot I did before going on maternity leave, and I'm so glad I squeezed it in. These guys are just awesome. It turned out that their team was 75% Canadian, so it was nice to hang out and chat with people who sound like me :)

They were opening the very next day, and it looked amazing. There was obviously so much love and hard work being poured into their studio, not to mention excitement! You can find more details about Modo Yoga Sydney here

sydney yoga photographer: philippa

I'm finally getting around to catching up on blogging my latest shoots, and today I bring you, another yoga session! What can I say? I just love yoga photography. These photos were taken early on a winter morning at the beach. It was freezing but Philippa did such a good job of modelling that you can't even tell how cold it was. If you'd like to find out more about Philippa, you can find her website here.
