Danell Leyva and the U.S. Men’s Gymnastics Team // John Huet

Not the best day for Danell Leyva and the U.S. Men’s Gymnastics team yesterday, but at least Leyva had some fun with the media when he was asked if the 450,000 condoms provided for the 10,500 Olympic athletes in Rio this year would be enough.

“Is that more than last time?†he asks.

“It’s a record.â€

“Is it twice as many?â€

“It’s a lot, I think. The question is: Will that be enough?â€

“For me?â€Â he asked, laughing.

John Huet had the opportunity to work with Danell earlier this year during his training sessions in Miami. We’ll be sharing more images and video of Danell as the Games continue, so stay tuned!

Bill May, The Greatest Synchronized Swimmer Who Ever Lived // John Huet

Undoubtedly one of our favorite shoots of all time, we are thrilled to share this stunning body of images photographed last summer by John Huet for ESPN The Magazine. A master at his craft, John never ceases to amaze us, but these images left us absolutely breathless, no pun intended.

Be sure to check out the feature story online and in the magazine. It’s a great read.

Special Olympics Take Los Angeles // John Huet

John Huet is no stranger to the Olympics, having photographed at every Summer and Winter Olympic Games for the past 13 years. Last year John brought his passion and exceptional eye to the 2014 Special Olympics USA Games where he found endless inspiration in the athleticism, pride, camaraderie, determination and joy of these Olympic athletes.

The 2015 Special Olympics World Summer Games (in partnership with Bank of America) will be held in Los Angeles July 25 – August 2, bringing with it 7,000 athletes from around the world. For Bank of America’s #passtheflame campaign, John had the privilege of photographing several of these Olympic athletes, each owning their field (or court, pool, gym, course, etc.). We’re so excited to share these inspiring portraits of some of 2015’s competitors. Good luck to all! Let the Games begin!

CA Photo Annual // John Huet + Edo Kars


We couldn’t be prouder to share that images by both John Huet and Edo Kars have been selected for this year’s Communication Arts Photo Annual. If you’ve been following closely, you’ll recall John’s 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics image and Edo’s bug close-ups from previous posts. We’re sure you’re as unsurprised as we are that John and Edo’s unforgettable images have received the recognition they deserve, but it’s worth noting that their work is among the 157 winning images chosen from a staggering 4,421 entries. That’s a lot to be proud of.  A huge congrats to John and Edo!

If you’re so inclined, copies of the annual are available for purchase here.

Aqualillies – A Love Affair // Jennifer Robbins


Jennifer Robbins has fallen in love with the world famous—and retro glamorous— synchronized swimmers, Aqualillies. When we asked Jen to spill the beans about her newfound love, she spoke about the level of athleticism, talent and skill that’s required of these women which she finds totally inspiring. Not only that, but their retro style and flair bring back memories of the woman who taught Jen all about style – her beloved grandmother whose incredible fashion sense was vintage Hollywood all the way.

Coaxing these ladies out of their swim caps and onto dry land, Jen captured their sexy and playful spirits beautifully. Stay tuned. . .we’ll be sharing images of these sensational swimmers in the water later this summer!
