Proj: Nordic Walking

Nordic Walking is an enhancement of ordinary walking – it makes something we can all do…. twice as effective!

Nordic Walking uses poles to in order to add two major benefits to walking

  • The use of poles means the upper body muscles are used as well as the legs
  • The poles help to propel the walker along – this means he/she works harder than usual yet the support given by the poles makes it feel easier!

This is a specific fitness technique and is not to be confused with trekking, hill walking or trail running as the poles are not planted in front of the walker/runner but in a specific way that increases the use of the upper body. It can be done by anybody, anywhere and does not require expensive equipment or clothing.

Nordic Walking is the fastest growing fitness activity in the world and is used by individuals, personal trainers, health clubs, physiotherapists, doctors and health promoters because it is highly effective, affordable and FUN!

Sandra is the first person to introduce this kind of activity here in Dubai. I have been privileged to shoot the photos for her website.


    1. HI Patsy, sorry it took me more than a month to reply. Read my latest post for the reason why.

      Regarding the setup, Beautiful natural light. Except for the solo(with glasses) and group shot with the Burj Al Arab as a background. Those two has been shot with a 35 mm lens and an sb900 to light up the subject.

      For the Tutorials, I’m always running out of words whenever i sit and do a blog. I’m more of a public speaker than a writer/journalist. When we meet in person, i’ll be more than happy to discuss it to you.

      Kind Regards,
