We’ve traveled all over for our “T9 Behind the Scenes” series, sharing the adventures and misadventures we’ve had along the way. But that was just the tip of the iceberg. What does it really take to make a photo shoot happen? Find out.
Tagged: T9 Behind the Scenes
Our team is finally back at T9HQ after traveling to shoot our Fall 2015 catalog. If you’re a follower of Title Nine’s Instagram account, our “guess where we are?” photo may have given it away. While the guesses were great, we weren’t in Alaska, Colorado or Canada. We returned to, as one commenter so aptly put it, “heaven on Earth,” better known as Bend, Oregon.
Of course, just like any other Title Nine photo shoot, every day on location was an adventure unto itself.
They came, they took photos, wrangled chickens, visited hidden swimming holes and ate pumpkin pie for lunch: just another successful Summer shoot for Title Nine.
We take a lot of pride in having ordinary women who are capable of extraordinary things gracing our pages and website. They’re real – and so are our images. Surfing, juggling soccer balls on the beach, making fruit salad with machetes, climbing palm trees barefoot: if you see a picture of it, yes, our model athletes really did it!
It’s well known that our ‘model athletes’ are not professional models, and that the folks at T9HQ definitely know how to have a good time while still getting the job done. Put those two things together and it’s time to expect the unexpected. Have you ever wondered what sort of antics go on when our production crew hits the road and is shooting on location? Wonder no more.
Welcome to a sneak peek at Title Nine’s behind the scenes of our Spring 2015 shoot in gorgeous Bend, OR.
Back in May, we introduced “What We’ve Been Up To,” a new Timeout blog series dedicated to sharing both sides of the Title Nine “work hard, play harder” lifestyle. July is upon us – and we have been up to some fun!
T9 BEHIND THE SCENES
Have you ever wondered how many times it took to get that great action shot of Shelly jumping a hay bale in our Swing SWB? Want to know what happens when things get extra goofy on set? Check out more examples of the down and (sometimes literally) dirty behind the scenes on our model scout Facebook page, or search for the #t9behindthescenes hashtag on Instagram.
BATTLING CHEFS OFF-SITE
Competitive nature here at T9 doesn’t stop with sports – it bleeds into everything! Our Creative Team took over the workspace at local Kitchen On Fire for a four-team cooking competition. The reward? Consuming all the hard work with a glass of wine and incredible company. Find out all about our Kitchen on Fire adventure in our next Timeout post this Tuesday. Spoiler alert: it was all delicious.
Our team includes couch-to-5Kers and folks training for full Ironman triathlons. As we begin our countdown to the 5th Annual Title 9K Bay Area, our favorite guy over at CFO Endurance has returned. Coach Aaron – also known ‘lovingly’ as Coach Evil – has our crew hitting up conditioning at the park, and doing work down at the track. If you’re ever at Edwards Stadium on a Wednesday, say hello and know we love high fives. Photos from our first conditioning workout can be seen here.
3 V 3 BASKETBALL TOURNEY
Our owner/founder Missy has been playing basketball since long before her days at Yale, so when the sun finally started showing up, it was only natural for us to take to the park for a ‘special rules, all levels’ 3 on 3 basketball tournament… with very interesting results caught via GoPro. Did she foul our warehouse manager Eric? You decide.
AND AS ALWAYS, THERE’S MORE TO COME.
Have you ever seen pictures from a T9 event and thought, “Wow, I’d love to be a part of that?” Now you can! Please come out and join the T9 crew at the 5th Annual Bay Area Title 9K this September.
