I have been very lucky to be asked to do the photographs for County Durham Sport’s This Girl Can campaign. The aim of this national campaign is to celebrate active women up and down the country who are doing their thing no matter how well they do it or how they look while they doing it. Within this celebration County Durham Sport want to encourage women to get involved with sporting activities they may not normally think about. Today was This Girl Can Swim.
I was very impressed with these young women as they are serious swimmers, one is actually doing trials for the Olympics. My own experience of swimming with friends is usually us swimming two lengths then talking for 10 minutes before swimming another two lengths and so on. This photo shoot was a bit of a holiday for these young women though as they got to be a little more social in the pool for the sake of the shoot 🙂
