“Training is a test of mind, muscle, and a swimmer’s commitment to be better, faster.”
I had the opportunity to go to Austin, TX and photograph Bahamian swimmer and Olympian Joanna Evans at the University of Texas. This experience was definitely one for the books because it was my first time not only photographing, but watching a swimmer’s training session. They began their session with a 12-minute swim to warm up, I can’t even doggie pedal for 2 minutes straight 😂! From the outside looking in the workout looked intense, but Joanna made it look so effortless, and you can tell she enjoyed every minute of it.

“In the Quiet Moments” is my latest photography series featuring professional track athletes. After having the opportunity to document 3x Olympian, Gold & Bronze Medalist, DeeDee Trotter during her retirement year, I began to notice the quiet moments that these olympians face every day that many don’t get to see. We watch them compete in the largest stadiums, positioned on the blocks in complete silence before they take off, but rarely see the “behind the scenes” that has gotten them to that point. This series is a closer look at these moments.
