"WHY IT IS A SPECIAL PRIVILEGE TO BE A PHOTOGRAPHER" -By MikeCon Photography

"WHY IT IS A SPECIAL PRIVILEGE TO BE A PHOTOGRAPHER" -By MikeCon Photography

For me as a fitness photographer, I get to learn the stories about my people and how they got to where they are.  To me, that’s important because when they tell their true stories, there’s someone out there that’s probably going through the exact same story as the person that I’m working with.  Sometimes it’s eating disorders, being bullied, growing up with abusive people, being the overweight person, or just wanting to better themselves physically, spiritually and mentally.  They all have their own different reasons and struggles, and I love hearing about them because it drives me to ensure that they get the absolute best out of me, so they can tell their story if they desire to inspire.

"FIT FEATURE: KATIE KATES" - By Denver Fitness Photographer MikeCon Photography

Who inspires you?  Why?  People who are unapologetically themselves.  People who don’t care what others think of them, who say what they feel, stand up for what they believe and kick ass along the way. Those are my kind of people!  


Who is your fitness and body role model? Why?  I have so many!  I follow a lot of very inspiring and bad ass women on Instagram.  They make me want to try harder and be better. I’ve also am a huge fan of our local Norma Jean Watkins.  She’s a mini bad ass and I love her. Hey girl, heeeey!!!!

I shoot outdoors...it's my first love because that's how I started before I could afford studio time. Outdoors is great because we get to hike up and down hills, water, enjoy insects, the weather and more. It's the hardest of all of the shoots to do because of the weather.
