Behind the Scenes at the Zoggs Photo Shoot

This past November, Blinq Photography worked with Zoggs to come up with a few shots that really show off what these goggles can do for professional triathletes.

If you don’t already know about Zoggs, Shawn Smith will bring you up to speed. “Most of the athletes I’ve spoken with love two things about these goggles. They’re happy to finally have a goggle that fits their face and they really like the way the goggles reduce the sun’s glare. Zoggs actually use polarised filters, so they’re really effective when you’re swimming and the sun is reflecting off of the water”.

Blinq Photography set out to show off these features during the Zoggs photo shoot. They really wanted to get some up close and personal images of the sun reflecting off of the goggles while their athletes (Mitch Robbins and Craig Withers) were in the middle of an intense swim. Much like any polarised pair of sunglasses, Zoggs are quite reflective.

Blinq Photography also took the opportunity to do a short video on thier own process and what it’s like for them to do one of these shoots. They brought a few videographers with them who followed them around throughout the shoot. Have a look at this video, and you’ll get a more in-depth view of a typical day at the office with Blinq.

As you can see, all kinds of gear was used during the shoot. They had all pro photography gear with some giant six foot softboxes illuminating the pool, and were even taking a few photos underwater.

After taking every imaginable shot in the pool, they moved out to the ocean just as the sun was going down. Blinq wanted to get a few photos of the athletes coming out of the water, so they used a giant reflective umbrella and very powerful flash.
