Meet the Team

Swim Bike Run Photography sends professional photographers to sporting events (of all kind!) in and around the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area (and beyond).


Brian W Knight
Owner/Principal Photographer

Brian has covered numerous sporting events that have taken him from the streets, rivers, and trails of D.C. and the mid-Atlantic, to the hot Utah desert and rocky mountains of Montana, and to the distant peaks of Patagonia.

Covering races requires a photographer to think quickly on their feet, adapt to changing light and angles, and be comfortable sitting in the hot sun, the pouring rain, or tied to a rock face hundreds of feet in the air. Each event presents similar challenges, especially when attempting a more subtle, less in your face, photojournalistic approach.

Brian’s photos have been seen in several shows and in numerous publications and websites including The Washington Post, Shape magazine, Yahoo! News, Backpacker, Competitor magazine, Blue Ridge Outdoors, Metro Sports DC, and He has also written articles published in Trail Runner Magazine and Tri DC.

Current clients include Competitor Group (The Nation’s Triathlon and TriRock Philadelphia Triathlon), Pacer Running Stores, and EX2 Adventures.

In 2009, the international photography competition, Fotoweek DC, awarded Brian first prize for Sports Photography.
