supporting British aquatic sports
    Welcome to GBswimstars...


   Started in 2009 by the award-winning photographer Simon Wright, the GBswimstars project is now one of the largest online collections of aquatic sports images.

   As a keen Masters swimmer and specialist sports photographer Simon's aim is to capture powerful, memorable photographs that will help promote British swimming, diving, synchronised swimming and water polo in the run up to the Rio 2016 Olympic games.

   He has been
visiting clubs across the country and photographing the swim stars of today and future stars of Rio 2016 and beyond; telling a photographic story of their journey to the Olympic games.
   Clubs use the GBswimstars photographs to promote their own swimming, diving or water polo stars - by putting the photos on their Website and sending them to the local/national press.  They also sell the photos to help with fundraising and some of the photos are used in posters to help inspire and motivate the children and athletes.

  
Please contact us if you would like your club to be included in the project, or view the galleries to see the GBswimstars photographs and posters.
