Simon Bruty's Favorite Shots

"Unlike event or competition photography, I have complete control when I set up a shoot. I was standing on a chair in the pool so I could photograph Michael Phelps at water level. I made him repeat the butterfly stroke a number of times, so much so that he said this was worse than his training sessions."
