Aaron Okayama c/o ALYSSA PIZER MGMT photographed the eye-catching motifs with US swim stars Caeleb Dressel and Abbey Weitzeil, who will compete for the USA at the Olympic Games in Tokyo.
Swimming is among the oldest Olympic sports and promises many exciting competitions again at the 2021 Olympics. Heats will take place in pools and in the open water of the Tokyo Bay. These are also the first Olympic Games to be held after the Phelps era, but one of his former teammates is ready to try and break the megastar’s record of winning medals : His name is Caeleb Dressel. The master sprinter had six chances at gold this year. In the 50m and 100m freestyle and the 100m butterfly, he is considered the one to bet on.
“I’ve been lucky to have this view of some of the world’s fastest swimmers,” says the sport & lifestyle photographer from Los Angeles. “I pride my work in capturing authenticity. Whether it’s staged or planned, my photography feels persuasive, genuine, and aspiring. I believe my style of photography draws emotion and helps brands to resonate with consumers, and consumers to relate more with the brand. Over the past several years, I’ve established a great team, enabling me to handle everything from full-size productions to shooting smaller, more intimate jobs.”
Among Aaron’s clients are brands such as OAKLEY, Ralph Lauren, Sperry, Polo, Kenneth Cole Reaction, Lucky Brand, Trina Turk, Nanette Lepore Swim, The Bikini Lab, Green Dragon, Manhattan Beachwear, and many more.
