One of the things I look forward to photographing swimming is learning the back story of my swimmers and, more importantly, their future plans.
I had spent a hour doing the more standard senior pictures for this young man, learning a little about him, when the time came for us to hit the pool.
As I was setting up and getting my gear ready and checked out, we discussed his future plans.
It turns out, he had numerous scholarship offers from D-1 schools to swim, but was waiting for that one offer from his school of choice.
His ability in the pool and the speed at which he swam was noticeably different than anyone I had shot before - crisp, perfect, and speedy yet smooth.
Each stroke seems to better than the previous and the ease and power with which he came off the wall in his turns was undeniable.
It was a noticeable difference to what I had been used too.
Oh, and that scholarship offer he was waiting on? It came from Georgia Tech in the fall and he will be swimming with the Yellow Jackets swim teaming the future.
This entire outdoor swimming session was incredible and produced a number of fantastic images. If you want to create your own swimming gallery, contact me and we'll get right to work on it!
