Fun Times with Keen and Backpacker!

Fun Times with Keen and Backpacker!

08 Mar shonakamori 4 Comments »

I had a pretty awesome opportunity today.  I did a short commercial shoot for Keen Footwear and Backpacker Magazine!  Keen is known for making outdoorsy shoes and Backpacker magazine gives you the latest information and advice on outdoor activities and hiking.  I won’t disclose much about what the commercial is about (it’ll be a surprise for when it gets finished) but I’ll say that it definitely involved some gymnastics!  We shot at a park in San Francisco.  I only did handstands so the shoot didn’t involve anything too difficult but I’ll admit that it was a bit scary given how high the bars were.  They were probably at least 10 feet off the ground and only dirt underneath.  Luckily I got more comfortable as I did more.

Pics are below from the shoot:

Pressing up to the handstand.

Yes, the bars were pretty darn high! Kinda dangerous come to think of it...

Handstand shot with cool effects!

Not only was it a fun gig but I even got a new pair of shoes!  Thanks Keen!

Lovin' the new kicks. Better start being more outdoorsy!

    Sweet Picture! I will refrain from showing Logan though. He looks up to you so much . . . I can see him attempting this alone!
