IMG_9855I was digging through the archives looking for a particular picture and came across this one. I shot this last year at the Charlotte Ultra Swim at the Mecklenburg Aquatic Center before the Olympics. It was an awesome event with the likes of Cullen Jones, Michael Phelps etc. They were very approachable and took the time to talk to visitors and sign autographs. What’s most interesting about this is that I just got a call out of the clear blue from a colleague who said, “I have an extra credential…do you want to come and shoot with me?” I’m glad that I did. Half of the battle is just being there when people call. I’m glad that I did otherwise I wouldn’t have had the opportunity to capture some exemplary talent.
