Cool Down With This Refreshing Collection of Swimming Pool Photos
A collection of swimming pool photos from around the world, curated by The Luupe.
Because it’s peak summer, we’re hot and sweating, and we really just want to cool down.
Swimming pools are a place of community, family, and escape. They’re a refuge from the heat and a trying year. A place to come together.
We wax nostalgic, hopeful, live vicariously, dream of traveling far away, and celebrate one of the most joyful rites of summer.
Let’s dive in.
I’ve been working on a still life Summer Fruits shoot, looking at paintings, colours and shapes to create a pastel, summer fruit stylised image, this is what I managed to create at my home studio.
The other day I went to Southend for a little day trip. These are some of the photos I took during the trip.
The other day I went to hastings for a little day trip. These are some of the photos I took during the trip.

Today my Yogamatters shoot was featured on the Luupe blog, highlighting 11 brands doing body positivity right. For the full feature please have a look at the post here which also features a little statement I wrote about my experience with this shoot. The following statement can be found below;
Yogamatters is a UK based Yoga apparel brand whose mission focuses on making Yoga inclusive for all cultures and body types. Luupe photographer Hayley Benoit recently photographed their Eco Collection shares her experience working with them:
“I was super excited especially when I saw the creative brief as I feel it connected with me personally and to what I would like to portray in my imagery: healthy living and body positivity. I’ve photographed a lot of models in my time but nothing that reflected women I could personally relate to. The women that Yoga Matters selected were strong, confident and completely happy in their own skin – something that I aspire to be when wearing yoga clothes. I’ve practiced Yoga in the past and always felt body conscious as everyone in my class always had a certain body type. Photographing women that I could relate to made me feel proud to champion women of all shades, shapes and sizes.”
In celebration of Father’s Day, the Luupe put together an online exhibition on their Blog “100 Visions of Fatherhood” and my image of “Marshall and Lily” was shortlisted amongst other female artists across the globe for the feature
This week some more of my photos for Yogamatters were released and used for some of their marketing material.
The other week I went Camping with some friends, these are some of the photos I took from the weekend.
