Most underwater photographers will be familiar with the work of pro underwater photographer Stephen Frink. He has been creating underwater images for over 30 years, and is widely recognized as the most frequently published underwater photographer in the world. He is also the publisher of the highly respected Alert Diver Magazine for DAN.
What many people may not be aware of is that underwater photography is his second water-borne passion, having started out as a competitive swimmer. The 2012 Olympics, and previously the 2008 Games, have rekindled this passion in a different form, as Stephen documents America’s Olympic swimming athletes in training. Wetpixel tracked him down to ask a few questions about his swimming career and his latest project.
