I love photographing people who have done something Extraordinary, and as a press photographer my work allows me to places and allows me to meet people I would not normally get to meet – It’s always a privilege to meet people who you know have got that extra something.
After a hard day’s taking pictures I was relaxing in front of the tele box with Mrs Aled Llywelyn and we were watching a program called ‘Saved’, about people who had been saved ( obviously ) from some kind of sticky situation. One of these stories struck a chord with me. The Story of Steve and Dan.
Steve had saved Dan from drowning by swimming a long way out to see to rescue him. It has me in tears ( really ) however when I told Steve this I don’t think he believed me! So it turns out that Dan and Steve have been friends ever since. It’s always nice to cover a story with a happy ending.
I managed to be lucky enough meet both the Lads at Rhossili Near the Beach where it all happened. And this Cutting was the result.
