Cal Sports Quarterly - Men's Swimming National Champions


I had an opportunity to shoot something I'd really like to shoot more of, creative posed portraits! Only problem was, this was for 6 guys. It's hard to coordinate a portrait with one guy, let alone 6. And more difficult when 6 guys have to fit into a vertical image for a magazine.


But when the guys are all National Champions, super nice, and I have any opportunity to do posed portraits, I'm not complaining! It's not many people that can say they've photographed national champions, olympians, gold medalists!


They also wanted some in the water shots which would be sweet with one guy, just below chest deep, water reflecting, complete water as background, but with 6 guys that turns out to look either water polo and a little awkward.


After they got in the water, we tried to do some "just out of the pool" shots. It was chilly for them but they were troopers.


Before all the guys were out, the SID asked for some solo shots of Nathan Adrian.


Nathan is a great ambassador for Cal because he's a smiley, pre-med gold medalist. But he's one of my favorite Cal athletes because he was on mythbusters! He was on a episode about swimming in syrup. How cool!!!!!

  3. Color fiber optic and LED pool lights can be inserted directly into the floor or wall of a pool or spa, allowing entire bodies of water to glow in a wide array of neon colors. A well-lit pool surrounded by fiber optic spot lights can bring your pool and landscape to life. Stahlwandpool

  12. The three other seasons pretty much are the same in terms of maintaining the pool. Winter on the other hand even has its own winterizing kit. The winterizing kit contains a special set of tools and equipment needed for maintaining a swimming pool during winter. swimming pool contractor

  13. The key to keeping your pool tiles lasting longer is chemical balance. If your saltwater pool is out of balance, the water will corrode the grout, which cracks and discolors the tile. how to clean a green swimming pool

  22. Many gamblers enjoy going to a formal casino, but they are finding that a good casino on-line site can offer them just as much fun as the brick and mortar casinos, but all from the convenience of home. Both novice gamblers who are in the process of learning new games and mastering ones that they are somewhat familiar with, and the seasoned gamblers will find sites that offer challenging and high-roller tournaments that they will enjoy.
