What a pleasure it was to photograph the book, Master the Kettlebell, with author Max Shank, Master RKC, and Beth Andrews, RKC. Max and Beth make each exercise look so easy. Believe me, its not! And don’t even try playing catch with a kettlebell, like Max does further down this post. Before shooting this exercise, I asked Max if he wanted a bit of practice to warm up before we started shooting. No he says, lets go. So be it. We photographed that short series in one sequence, studio flashes repeatedly going off as Max nailed every rotation of the kettlebell, flawlessly.
This shoot took place in the basement of a now defunct workout facility in the St. Paul area. Master the Kettlebell can be purchased at Dragon Door for $19.95.
