WELL IT IS OFFICIAL!!!
I am heading to the 2018 BREEDERS' CUP in Louisville Kentucky taking place on Friday November 2nd and Saturday November 3rd at the Churchill Downs race track. I will be staying in Lexington.
This was an opportunity that I could not pass up.
I will mostly be shooting candid including some back end stuff. Security is going to be extremely tight behind the scenes and there are very specific rules that I must follow.
The great news is that because I am formally announcing this 5+ months prior to the event, it gives me plenty of time to research and take on individual assignments from small legitimate sources whether it is media, news, associations or publication blogs who will be at the Breeders' Cup on assignment and in need of a photographer. If anyone happens to know of any, feel free to have them contact me and I will tell them what I can do for them. TIA.
I do not have permission or the rights to shoot from the inner circle (an extremely highly conveted spot), but I will be right on the track to get my action shots. I will have my share of action shots but I also plan on capturing this event from another angle putting a heavy emphasis on candid.
This is going to be one heck of an experience and I will soak in every second of it. This is going to be one heck of an experience and I will soak in every second of it. There is no denying that I will be high on adrenaline upon arrival but after some minute have passed, I should be able to settle in nicely.
In addition, I mentioned last week that I wanted in on the 113th annual Millarville Race on Canada Day (July 1st). I am pleased to say that I will be there - along the track, behind the scenes and in the inner circle.
