Special Olympics Swimming

I got to spend a couple hours this week photographing some of the coolest people I’ve ever met for the Special Olympics. It was their 2009 Spring Games and I did pictures during the swimming competition. What amazing people, both the competitors and the volunteers. I love the wonderful emotion and dedication I saw that day. If anyone has an opportunity to go to one of their events, or volunteer/donate in some way, I’d highly recommend it.

You can see the full shoot and buy prints here: http://ctryanclients.com/cart/. 100% of the proceeds go the the Special Olympics Minnesota.

Nice post! My daughter was one of the athletes pictured, and I LOVE the picture!!! (along with the others on your photography site!) I think a lot of people didn’t realize you were there, or that they could get copies of the pictures, so I’m working on spreading the word!

Wow, those are some amazing shots! I can’t wait until my son is old enough to participate in these kinds of events.
