The 2013 CrossFit Games season is here! A sold out crowd at South Brooklyn CrossFit got to stand just a few feet away from the remarkable and photogenic Annie Thorisdottir. Annie moved with focus and determination. She never broke pace, for the 10 minute AMRAP workout, and the crowd went nuts. She showed us why she is the champ, she glowed, she smiled, I think she even pranced.

I shot about 8000 photos in 6 days at the CrossFit Games. I also shot about 12 hour of video, mostly athlete interviews. The two cameras – Canon 5D Mark III and 5D Mark II.

The fittest woman in the world, CrossFit extraordinaire, 2011 CrossFit Games Champion, as seen on ESPN, Annie Thorisdottir. She is only 21 years old, and appears to be unstoppable. The people love her, the camera loves her and she loves CrossFit. If you have not seen her on the CrossFit ESPN shows, you need too. You can see this amazing body, amazing woman in action.
She is the fittest woman in the world. Annie Thorisdottir put on a show of strength, stamina and skills this past July, at the 2011 CrossFit Games.
I am in Iceland this week shooting a journal video with Annie, or as we affectionately call her in the states, Iceland Annie.
Like Rich Froning, Annie is also a photographers dream. After a long three days of shooting video with Annie, I switched the 5D into photo mode and snapped a few stills. Here a few, I will post more later.
These photos, were all taken with natural light at ISO 640. There is a great row of windows at her CrossFit Gym in Reykjavik that lets in the evening sun.
