Photo Tip of the Week from photo contributor, Kelsey Finn…
A tip for the underwater models out there.

The best way to achieve this is by practicing holding your breath and get comfortable being underwater!

A Slice of Life | New Guest Blog Series from Stephanie Schechter

Stephanie-1
Meet SWELL’s newest guest blogger…Stephanie Schechter! You might know her as the “Watermelon Girl” if you’re social media savvy, but there’s more to this San Diego-raised water baby than her fruit-themed Insta-personality.
So why do we thing she’s so…SWELL?
* She’s a true beach baby. She began competing and picking up sponsors while most of us were still picking up Lego pieces.
* The girl has style, by sea and by land!
* She had us at “Watermelon.”

Look forward to travels, cross-steps, and, of course, all things watermelon, with Stephanie on her new SWELL Series, Slice of Life….
