2014 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year Nomination

Ola Vista Photography by Mike Lewis is nominated for the 2014 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year.

"Mike Lewis has an eye for photography that many companies, events, governing bodies and universities appreciate. From USA Swimming and the U.S. Olympic Committee to Stanford University to Yale and many of the major swimsuit manufacturers, Lewis understands motion and beauty above, on and under because he is a waterman himself. He not only catches those moments in competition that can tell a story by themselves, but he also creates award-winning images that showcase the power, grace and athleticism of swimmers in any aquatic environment, whether it is bodysurfing on a wave or diving in at the start. For his creativity in capturing beautifully energetic images, for presenting swimmers in a visually creative manner, for exposing swimmers in unique positions and conditions, Ola Vista Photography is a worthy nominee for the 2014 World Open Water Swimming Offering of the Year."
