After settling down in New York City, Shaw spent nearly ten years travelling the world with New York City as his base before relocating to Sydney, Australia in 2006 to experience what life “down under” had to offer. After spending nearly three years in Australia, Shaw has recently relocated to Sausalito, California.
Ezra Shaw, a Getty Images photographer, shoots divers at the 14th FINA World Championships:
“Like any event, I am always trying to get something a little different each day. We had just got a 800mm lens shipped in from London and I decided to take it over to the diving pool and see what I could get. I set up down on the pool deck for the men’s 3-meter springboard prelims. After the first diver went, I realized it was going to be much more difficult to capture the type of images I wanted because the divers were jumping so fast, and the 800mm lens was so tight. However, I started to get the hang of it, and by the end of the session, I got a handful of pictures that I really liked showing the different faces of the divers. ”
