Simon Cooke’s record breaking coldest charity channel swim

Simon Cooke is about to embark on an incredible record breaking journey. Next week he will be on standby to swim the English channel earlier than anyone has done before, this will mean his swim will be colder than any cross channel swim before him around 11-12 °C (51.8-53.6 °F). He is a fellow member of Brighton Swimming club and has been in training for over a year doing 6 hour sea water training sessions, in comparison at this time of year (May) I swim for 20-30 minutes before I get really cold. He is raising money for a local Charity Amaze which gives information, advice and support to parents of children with disabilities in Brighton & Hove. You can donate to his simon cooke fundraising page.

Brighton Christmas day swim 2014

If I am in Brighton on Christmas day I will always try and document the Christmas day swim you can see a selection of images for previous swims in my portfolio here. Brighton beach was meant to be closed to swimmers on Christmas day 2014 and the Christmas Brighton day swim canceled. In 2012 and 2011 the council / sea front office took the decision to close the beach because of bad weather to prevent people from swimming, no one tried enter the water in those years. In 2014 the decision was taken to close the beach two weeks before Christmas day. It turned out that Christmas 2014 was sunny and the sea was flat so small group of people went swimming despite the beach closure.

I’ve been shooting Christmas day swims science 2005 you can see a selection of images for previous swims in my portfolio here.

Miniclick plan a second print run of: I Dare the Wave, A Life to Save.

Last June MiniClick published a small print run publication of some of my work documenting Brighton Swimming Club. ‘I Dare the Wave, A Life to Save’ centred around David Sawyers: one of the clubs more eccentric characters. The first print run sold out super fast, I was on holiday when they went on sale, so I didn’t get a chance to promote the release, soon after I was back they were sold out. I know there was a few people that were disappointed that they did not get a copy in their hands.

‘I Dare the Wave, A Life to Save’ released by MiniClick

In June 2014 MiniClick published 5 photo publications including ‘I Dare the Wave, A Life to Save’ which showcases a collection of photographs by me based around one of the more eccentric members of Brighton swimming club: Dave Sawyers. Originally they just wanted to publish a set of pictures of Brighton Swimming Club. The Club is the oldest swimming club in the world with continuous membership and which I’ve been documenting since 2003. Early during their edit MiniClick realised that there was such a wealth of images that it was going to be tricky to edit it down so they decided to focus on one club member in particular.

driSuit hands on review – waterproof case for the iPhone 4 / 4s

Photojojo recently sent me a few products to test out. The first item I had to use was driSuit; a waterproof iPhone case for the iPhone 4 / 4s. This is not the first waterproof case I’ve used with an iPhone but it is definitely miles ahead of anything I have used before. All images in the review apart from photos of the case where taken with an iPhone 4 in a driSuit and processed with Instagram.
