This past weekend I had the pleasure of shooting with Kiame Biandudi. She’s a certified Zumba instructor and she contacted me a couple of weeks ago about getting some promotional portraits and head shots ahead of some new classes she’s teaching.  I’ve never done Zumba, but I have heard about it, and I jumped at the chance to work with a Zumba professional.

Saturday morning, Kiame and I set out to make some great images that reflected her personality and showed her flair. As she puts it, her classes are Zumba with a bit of a hip-hop feel.  I think we got some great images and all her friends seem to love them. Here are some of my favorites.

Also, if you’re interested in joining one of Kiame’s classes, she teaches at the West Side YMCA in Knoxville, TN (400 North Winston Rd. 37909). Her classes are currently offered on Tuesdays at 6pm and Fridays at 6:15pm. They’re $5 for non-members and free to members.  You can also find out more about Kiame on her Facebook page.
