Underwater photo-shoot with a difference

Nick Robertson-Brown, from Frogfish Photography, has taken a series of photographs to launch the Channel 4 coverage of the BT Paralympic World Cup, being held in Manchester at the end of May. Three of the competing athletes - Simon Munn from wheelchair basketball, runner Richard Whitehead and swimmer Liz Johnson - took part in the underwater shoot at Manchester Aquatics Centre to promote the event.
The Frogfish team spent all day in the pool working out logistical and safety issues, such as sinking an expensive wheelchair and a basketball, as well as working out weighting and air supply for the athletes before getting them in for the shoot.
The image chosen to launch the event coverage shows all three athletes underwater, posing as if competing in their respective sports.
