Like many people this year I have taken the plunge and started wild swimming. I’ve swam down the hill at the local park “pond”, in beautiful Northumberland rivers, the bracing North Sea and stunning Peak District reservoirs. To combine this new found love with photography was a great fit for me – although I hadn’t really considered the implications of so much water, mud and cold whilst endeavouring to use my camera gear! All well worth it though – I have met some lovely people and as ever capturing something so magic on camera is a joy.
Big thanks to the New Issue magazine for commissioning some wild swim photos. Please consider buying a print copy of the magazine here. It’s the sister publication of the Big Issue and supports vulnerable people who sell the Big Issue. The extra support would be particulary valued as Big Issue vendors have had so much of their work stripped away over the lockdown months of 2020. It’s a great high end coffee table magazine.
