For years, I photograph for USA SWIMMING. A wonderful organization with devoted people who work there to show everybody how important and beautiful it is to work out in the water. Specially for kids. The campaign below was created in PHOENIX/AZ with 13 Olympic Swimmers and I don't know how many kids. Eight hours constantly working under water, holding my breath and enjoying it to the last minute ! What a pleasure that was, seeing these world class swimmers interact with totally excited and happy kids, in and around the pool. Happy faces, smiles, big big open eyes, hugs, splashes, bubbles and memories created that will motivate these kids for their lifetime. So happy I could be part of that !
I feel most at home under water. And that is a fact.
