Finally the group had reach a landmark in attaining double figures. Sunday 21st August 2011 was the recorded date for the groups 10th meetup which was held in South London at Ladywell Arena which is a multiple use sports venue with athletic and gym facilities. This showed a lot of ambition and enthusiasm as the group conducted for the second time two meet ups within a single month.

With the 2012 Olympics on it’s way this meetup was ahead of it’s time. The group had access to the running track, hurdles, shot put, long jump and gym facilities. Set locations for photographs were plentiful but challenging which meant the group had to be very creative with their ideas.
Various new photographers and models in and out of London, both male and female were invited to the arena paving the way for new talent to show case their skills in front of the camera. The models were put through their paces running up and down the track and posing in the sandpit. The models also had fun working within the gym and using the exercise equipment . In many ways this shoot reflected the 2nd LSS Meetup which was held at the Energie Fitness Gym.

Sadly this was the last meetup for a while as the group had been working very hard, consistently delivering entertaining shoots throughout the summer. Another meetup was eventually booked which would be the first time a meetup would take place out of London but before that shoot would be completed much reflection and planning had to be undertaken on how to take the group forward and ensure it’s momentum going into the new year.
