"FIT FEATURE: ANGIE SHOUP" - By European/German Fitness Photographer MikeCon Photography

"FIT FEATURE: ANGIE SHOUP" - By European/German Fitness Photographer MikeCon Photography

Angie lives in Sioux Falls, South Dakota, and drove over 10 hours to come and work with me. She was a referral from my client Leslie. Angie and I talked over the course of a couple of months to ensure that her shoot was 100% perfect. The shoot was so good, that I tried to convince her to pack up and move to Colorado to be around more fitness minded people (Colorado is awesome for that!). Below is the interview that I did with Angie. I truly hope that you read what she has to say, and I pray that it inspires others out there to do more, and be more!

"DENVER FITNESS PHOTOGRAPHER" - By MikeCon Photography

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.

"PERSERVERANCE & RESILIENCE (PR)" - By MikeCon Photography

I went into this business without a "backup plan", or "escape route".  I am an "all or nothing" kinda person when it comes to achieving my goals.  I don't let bad people, or situations stop me for continuing my goals.  You've got to put the work in to be great.
