37 Days of Photography
I’m still new to the whole travelling photographer thing and I had spent many months planning my latest trip that would see me gone for over a month. It taught me a lot and I gained a lot of experience. I’ve also worn down the brand new wheels on my Thinktank Photo Roller Derby.
This was my second trip to Europe in 5 months. This time I covered the World Equestrian Games in Normandy France, the Rescue 2014 International Lifesaving Championships in Montpellier France and part of the Canadian Show jumping Tournament at the fantastic Caledon Equestrian Park in Ontario (host of the Pan Am 2015 Games). Two solid weeks of being surrounded by the world’s best equestrian photographers was intimidating but exciting. A week later, I attended the Rescue 2014 event. I was to photograph team Canada for the Lifesaving Society of Canada. From what I could tell, I was the only professional photographer in attendance for the beach events which allowed me to get some incredibly unique shots while standing in the choppy ocean working on my sun tan. Finally I headed back to Ontario to not only shoot the last big outdoor Equestrian event of the year but to also check out the facilities, lighting, angles and backgrounds of the venue that is hosting the equestrian events at the 2015 Pan Am Games. I came home exhausted and happy. I’m already planning my next shooting assignment!
