These swimming photos and captions come from Tim Binning. Tim’s more than a photographer (and the owner of theswimpictures.com), he’s a journalist and a passionate supporter of swimming. He knows the sport, the swimmers, parents and coaches’ backstory. He knows what to capture during our most dramatic moments.

Many thanks to Tim Binning for these beautiful swimming photos!
