This is a director of photography demo cut of footage I shot of Gideon Akande for Stiry and iFit . Gideon’s amazing. He’s a world-class fitness trainer and motivational coach. You can’t be around Gideon without wanting to do better and be better.
The clips in this short cut were all shot on the Sony FS5 with the Shogun Inferno. Your comments are welcomed. Thx.

Gideon Akande, a Chicago native, played Division 1 football for Holy Cross and became one of the leading kickoff returners in school history. After graduating, Gideon began a career in finance.
His heart wasn’t in it.
In 2010, he became a full-time fitness instructor and found his passion. Today, Gideon teaches, trains and motivates with his always positive attitude, his contagious energy and his undying belief that each person should…
Just Go For It.
I had the privilege to work with Gideon, for Stiry and iFit, as Director of Photography, in telling his story of success through hard work, a positive attitude and the courage to follow his passion–fitness and wellness training .

I worked as Director of Photography on a video for IconFitness and Stiry. This video is a short compilation of exterior shots from that project.
I photographed Tanya Poppett with the Sony FS5 in 4K Raw using the Sony Gmaster 70-200mm lens, recording on the Shogun Inferno.
The opening and closing drone shots were done with the DJI Phantom 4.

Tanya wanted to work out in a cool location. The Royal National Park in New South Wales, Australia, about an hour south of Sydney, was the perfect spot.
Tanya Poppett is a fitness instructor from New South Wales, Australia. I’m a filmmaker based in the United States.
