We’ve partnered with some of the best photographers to empower your success. Our photographers are hand-selected for their professionalism, timely production and talent communications and are on-hand ready to travel to your location or studio.
For our talent, an AEFM photoshoot is a lot of fun. Our photographers will help you to feel comfortable and guide you on how to pose and move. While you’re there to work, it should also be a positively challenging experience where you’ll learn lots about the photographic aspect and the creation of elite campaigns.
A successful fitness models portfolio consists of imagery of the same, high quality as advertising campaigns from leading athletic brands like Nike, UnderArmour and Reebok.
To achieve this level, the portfolio must contain a variety of dramatic angles, both wide and telephoto. Fast shutter speeds will capture you in motion and tailored lighting will emphasise physique and prowess.
The combined result of posing knowledge, movement and the techniques employed by our photographers will be a beautiful portfolio demonstrating the very best on offer.
A model’s portfolio is their first impression to an agency and talent seeker. For this reason, the importance of a professionally shot portfolio can’t be overstated. When putting together a portfolio it’s integral that we do so in a way that reflects the type of modelling we will be engaging in. For those seeking to join AEFM, the portfolio also needs to showcase your health and fitness prowess, and athleticism.
A well-assembled portfolio not only demonstrates professionalism but can be the difference in making it in the industry.
A selection of specially selected fitness garments and footwear is crucial to the preparation of a successful shoot. Well-fitting garments can be the difference between an amazing shoot and simply another image. Garment selection needs to compliment the talent and the environment they’ll be showcased in.
One of the most important aspects to shooting your portfolio is finding a meaningful location that compliments your sport. This also informs the equipment and props you’ll need to bring, the time when your shoot commences and the type of lighting the photographer will use.

Very responsive and flexible. the website makes it easy to choose the right model for the project. Would recommend for sports/fitness modelling work.
Right from the start, Jason at AEFM International was very professional and helpful in preparing myself for my portfolio. I was introduced to Matthew who was such a great photographer and really took the time and effort into getting the best shots possible. He was a great person to work with and very skilled at his job. Was a great pleasure to work with Matthew.
It was a real pleasure to meet Jared for my shoot with AEFM. He was punctual, professional, kind and extremely informative. From start to finish of the shoot he was very driven but also made me feel comfortable. Jared is a very talented individual and it was a pleasure to work with him in capturing the moments. I am truly grateful for this opportunity.
I have shot with a few photographers in the fitness industry and Jared was by far the most enjoyable! Professional, talented, humorous, efficient and not short of ideas enabled us to nail some great shots. Highly recommend him and look forward to working with him again.
My experience working with the AEFM team has been a true pleasure. They are all friendly, prompt and enthusiastic people that really care for and take pride in their work and so it is a great environment to be in. Jason is a great understanding and hard-working leader and my photo shoot experience with Matthew was perfect. He was knowledgeable, patient and approachable throughout the entirety of the time we spent on location. His shot creativity was awesome and the end products are perfect. You couldn’t ask for any better. They are all true professionals.
Photoshoot was really good! It was nearly called off because of weather but I think considering the circumstances we got some really good shots. Matthew and his assistant were so helpful with running me through poses and making me feel comfortable.
Working with Matt and the AEFM team has been an enjoyable and seamless experience. Matt was a pleasure to work with. On the shoot, he was timely and provided good direction to get the best out of myself. His turnaround time was great and the edits were on point. He delivered a superb set of images that will certainly help build my portfolio!
When I first heard that I was shooting with Oz I was very nervous because I had heard of his high profile work and I didn’t know how I would cope with the stress of trying to impress him but once I’d spoken to him and actually began to plan the shoot I become so much more comfortable and was able to have fun on the day, he greeted me with a smile and I was so excited to shoot with him, he really did make it an enjoyable experience that I could just be myself with and the photos are amazing I’m so happy with them.
Shooting with AEFM was fun and relaxed, as the photographer Matthew knew which areas would work with his client, and provided a clear direction of what he wanted. With an early start we made our way through the CBD towards the MCG, shooting at each location he had prepared for while taking advantage of good lighting in new locations along the way. The shoot took roughly two hours in total, and was a great learning experience as I got my first experience shooting with a sporting
“Oz is the best fitness photographer I have ever shot with. I always feel I want lots of guidance with photos and not only did he guide me all the way, he taught me a couple of things and on top of that, he was funny and made me feel extremely comfortable. He is also very talented and creative and really emphasises that the shots are about the model, not his style. I would love to shoot with him again”.
My experience shooting the portfolio was great. The photographer (Mathew) was very professional. It was easy to work with him and also fun, bringing out exceptional photos. Overall, the AFM team was very helpful, taking care of every detail to achieve the best results.
My experience with AEFM has been nothing short of perfect! I was new to the modelling industry and from the very beginning Jason has always been very supportive and encouraging. He has helped me so much along the way and I am incredibly grateful to be a part of such an excellent team.
The team at AEFM are phenomenal. My initial photo shoot was the most comfortable I have been in front of the camera and with the backing of Jason behind me, I’m sure there will be plenty more to come. Very professional. Thanks guys
I had the pleasure of working with the Aefm photographer Matthew to complete my portfolio photos. Matthew has a wonderful ability to make you feel comfortable and confident in front of the camera. His eye for the details really helps to ensure you’re capturing your best features and skills. Working together we accomplished some great shots I’m so proud of, and can honestly say I came away with more knowledge and experience as a fitness model.
“I met the AEFM photographer the day of my shoot. I was so nervous due to not having done a lot of this before. He made me feel really comfortable and was a lot of fun to work with. JT had amazing vision and the pictures he took prove it. They turned out amazing. I would definitely jump at the chance to work with JT again. I am extremely happy with the final outcome!”.
“Initially shooting with JT was very nerve racking for me as it was my first professional photoshoot. However after speaking on the phone prior, JT made me feel completely at ease with his encouragement and sense of humour. Onsite he was easy to follow and had amazing foresight to create fantastic images. He had a relaxed professionalism I have never before experienced that made for an amazing shoot. I would not hesitate at the opportunity to model for him again and would recommend JT to anyone looking not just for good images but amazing photos”.
AEFM provided an amazing photographer to help me shoot my portfolio. As someone with no prior modelling experience, the photographer gave me the confidence to take some great shots in front of the camera. They picked a location and environment that suited my mood board, played to my strengths as an athlete, gave constructive and clear feedback and had a great eye for detail. I was lucky to shoot with a photographer that has shot for some of the world’s biggest sporting brands.
Thank you to Aleia and the team at AEFM for supplying talent over the years. For anyone needing fitness talent AEFM have a huge stable here in Australia. Thanks once again.
Jay went above & beyond to help find me the right talent for our tight turn around TVC.
J and the team at AEFM have been nothing but exceptional. The talent required for our shoots have been incredible to work with and their service is highly recommended! We’ll definitely continue to work alongside AEFM for future campaigns and shoots.
AEFM are an absolute class above! Communication with the team was top notch and the talents were very enthusiastic and professional to deal with. Highly recommended
I worked with AEFM on a number of projects within the sports industry, and was consistently impressed by their fast communication, personal approach and reliability. AEFM worked closely and passionately with us to manage our bookings and scouting requirements, and always pulled through on last minute job requirements.
JT is an outstanding photographer with a magical ability to capture the true nature of people. He just doesn’t just take pictures, he capture moments. JTs images are technically superb. He has a wonderful way of putting you at ease.
I booked a shoot with Matthew soon after and it was outstanding. This was my first ever photoshoot, so I wasn’t aware of the standard shooting protocols or anything you would assume a model should know. Matthew helped me feel at ease, and helped bring out and highlight the natural me. After spending a couple hours outside the Melbourne Museum shooting different styles and fitness outfits, I received a copy of the portfolio photos taken and I was blown away with the outcome. Truly professional photos… you would never had guessed it was my first time!!
With great credit to Matthew, the shoot was so professionally conducted and he helped bring out the ultimate best in me. I am grateful for Jason introducing me to Matthew, as I now have an amazing start to my brand new portfolio and I’m so excited to see where this leads me in the fitness modelling world.
