After beating the team up in the gym, it was time for the final push so we headed towards Denver’s RiNo neighborhood to finish the day up with some urban running.
An afternoon rainstorm threatened to take a bite out of our shoot schedule so we posted up inside Crema Coffee House to take a quick break and wait out the showers.
After the skies dried up and some much needed caffeine was consumed we hit the streets of Denver’s RiNo district to capture some city running.
I’ve always really liked city running photos. I feel like most people run in the city, but every photo you see in magazines and advertisements are always out in some field or park somewhere. When Hind said to me that they wanted to capture some city running, I thought that it would be the perfect balance to the trail running that we shot a few hours earlier.
Everyone was dead tired at this point, but we all pressed on and the crew ran their butts off. We shot through the afternoon, through the sunset and even picked up a few shots running through some puddles after the sun had hidden behind the mountains.
Even after a nonstop 14 hour day, the entire group felt completely energized as we wrapped up. It’s a rare treat when a shoot goes as smoothly as this one and everyone steps up and puts their best foot forward.
A gigantic thank you goes out to the athletes, Andy Orley for filming, and Jessica Douglass and Josh Manilow from Collective International for making this such a productive and fun shoot. Can’t wait to do it again!!
