Recently my lovely yogi friend Mimi commissioned me to do a shoot for her on the beautiful beach where I live on Koh Phangan, Thailand. Mimi and I did a yoga teacher training course together and she found out about my love of film photography. I was excited that she specifically wanted her photos on film! Mimi was an enthusiastic, easygoing and patient model, who took it all in her stride when i asked her to pose kneeling on the sharp quartz rocks overlooking the bay. Personally I think the pain was worth it! Mimi hails from Iowa (probably the first person I have ever met from Iowa!) and teaches at Hothouse Yoga in Iowa City. Her background as a dancer (she also teaches dance) shines through in her elegant yoga asanas, for which the amazing view provides such a great backdrop. She can do a mean hula hoop as well! Thanks to the ever fun Lee for being roped in and assisting with the acro yoga pics! Here are a selection of the images I took that day, while many others can be seen on my Flickr album of the shoot. I was happy with about 95% of the images so it was really difficult to decide which to publish – I hope you enjoy them.
