I love the Images by Ann that we had EVERYWHERE in our CrossFit box. Nowhere can you find the raw, gritty images that communicate the “leave it all on the floor” attitude we brought to our workouts. Ann captured all our hard work and determination in action and made us look good too!

Ann Thoni Photography has done several shoots for my personal training company and she never disappoints. Ann is a master of lighting, creating and capturing unique, strong images. She has a knack for bringing out the best in each of the trainers, making them comfortable and confident throughout. Time is valuable to me and her efficient use of time during the shoot and timeliness delivering the finished product is much appreciated.

– Anita Slaughter Owner of A Train Fitness Coaching

As a personal trainer, I started working with Ann Thoni for weight loss competitions I had for my clients. At the end of the competition, Ann provided a photoshoot to show off their hard work. I was very impressed with her style, work, creativity, lighting, and, best of all, her integrity and personality. So I decided to do a photoshoot with her for myself. I cannot even put into words how amazing my pictures turned out! To say I was impressed is an understatement! Ann’s talents shined through with my shoot, and I was incredibly happy with the photos.

– Coach Angela Richardson

Ann is a fantastic sports photographer. She understands the angles needed to capture pure athleticism and grit. She can give direction when needed, but she is exceptional at letting the athlete move in their craft and using her tools – lighting, angles, and movement – to get the shot. She is also a crossfitter herself, and understands that it may not be possible to hold or redo a shot because of the nature of athletics. She gets it the first time so that a redo is not needed. Her images tell a story while highlighting the gritty craft of the human body’s capabilities.

I have known and worked with Ann and South 40 for years and I can say without a doubt she is the absolute BEST at athletic photography. She has done my family’s photos, our law firm’s website photography, head shots…she does it all. But if I was going to pick the type of photos she does the best (although they’re all amazing), I’d say the fitness photography is her real passion. She has mastered the art of lighting and artistry it takes to capture both the pain and exhilaration of pushing yourself to your physical limits. I have been blown away by her photos of our community workouts and also of our coaches marketing photos. I have been in fitness for years and have had many headshots and action shots taken for websites. Ann is hands down the cream of the crop for this type of work. If you’re looking for pure authenticity and artistry in sport, look no further than Ann Thoni from South 40!

– Coach Sloan Ashworth

For us….our facility would not have been a community without the presence of Ann’s work all over the walls. Inside the gym, work is put in, there are no excuses and you have to face reality. The consistent struggle that comes with challenging yourself daily doesn’t always look pretty. Something special takes place though when a group of people decide to push through that struggle together. Ann’s ability to capture those moments inside her photography is unparalleled. It encourages you, it motivates you, it intrigues you, it allows you to REALLY connect with the experience the athlete is struggling through. She is completely unnoticeable when shooting (which is crazy considering all the dynamics of a CrossFit event), always professional and does insane editing features to highlight the expressions of the shot. Hands down, the only photographer I will ever hire….ever!
