Olympic Swimmer Josh Beaver - Kylie Grinham
I was recently commissioned to photograph one of our young Australia Olympians, Josh Beaver for the City of Greater Dandenong.
Every month the council publishes a community magazine 'The City' and I was asked to produce a cover shot and internal editorial shot for the magazine to promote the cities 'come and try' sports events. These series of events will co-incide with the Rio De Janeiro Olympics in August and are designed to help promote active lifestyles in Dandenong.
I spent an hour with Josh in the freezing winter weather and what an amazing young man he is. Fully willing to get into the freezing water and wait patiently while we set up the lighting for the cover shot. We'll be watching out for hime and wishing him all the best in the Olympics. Apparently his chances are extremely good.
