Sometime you just have to wait, sit and pray that the “pool guy” won’t come steal your spot… no I’m not talking about anything that has to do with swimming pools, I’m talking about the word most photographers fear and sometimes loathe at the Olympics:  the Pool Photographer.

I can’t imagine seeing my leg bend that way.

Awesome shots. I can’t imagination the pressure of getting the focus right by using, of all things, bubbles. That is great

Totally amazing shots and thanks so much for your stories. I would never have known about the “protocols” that are followed in the Olympic Photo Pool, both above….and below the pool… hope you are staying rested and healthy…

I am blown away by all the details of the behind the scenes life of the Olympic photographer, I’m not sure my brain can take any more enlightenment without exploding!

I can vouch for this thing being the best of all? the high end vaporizers. Ive had them ALL. I have since purchased 15 more of these for friends that wanted them.
