San Diego based photographer, Shawn Paone, has been honing her photography skills since 2010. After receiving a BA in Visual Art from Rutgers University in 2013 she made the cross country trek from New Jersey to California in search of her next subject matter.

Always passionate about sports and art, Shawn has managed to blend her two passions over the past few years into a perfect marriage of fitness photography. She has focused mostly on local athletes at Crossfit gyms and competitions in Southern California with an attention on capturing the raw emotion required of the sport.

Shawn is a lifelong runner with a specific love for trails. Using her background in landscape photography and the skills she has learned there, many of her running subjects are shown captured in the wide and wild environments they find themselves in. Combining sports and nature has always been an important feature of her photos, as both are very significant parts of her life. Looking toward her future she hopes to continue to expand her range of athletes and delve into other sports and areas of fitness.
