I have people wondering and asking if I will be at Spruce Meadow's big events this year.
I will be at this years 'National' and 'Masters' held by Spruce Meadows in June and September of this year. No I am not going by an invite, I am going as a "spectator" but it's obvious that I will have all my camera gear along with me. I will only be there for the weekends for both events.
I will be shooting from the ground level bleachers. I will not be allowed to sell any of the photos that I do take - which is fine because I just want to be there and I just want to add my photos to my portfolio to show my audience again what I can do on the big stage and in this specific case, for the jumping world! I ultimately want to be in the grand stage of them all, so I will do whatever it takes to eventually get me inside the rings.
Though in this case I will have really tight restrictions to work within - which is fine. Challenges only make you stronger, they make you push harder to find new ways to accomplish what you are ultimately wanting to achieve.
I will be stationery as I will not have permission to maneuver around the rings - again that is fine. I will work with what's given to me and still make it happen and put out great work. A sign of a truly skilled photographer is one who works with any kind of restrictions and still manages to flourish and rise to the occasion in any given situation. This is exactly what I plan on doing.
