Equestrian competition

equestrian01.jpgLast week, I was the main event photographer for the ITF World Championship of Taekwon-do. Last Sunday, I was assisting the event photographer at a local equestrian competition. A lot less stressing! Actually, it was pretty fun and since he covers a lot of them, I will surely do it again.

So here is a selection of what I shot yesterday.

Mag cover

Got my first cover magazine today. Working for Entreprendre was challenging but fun. For their main story, they use 5 or 6 pictures, including the cover. That means you have to find and execute, in a short period of time, 5 or 6 fairly different pictures. As Frank O’Connor (Loyalist teacher) used to say: Creativity on demand!

Here is some pictures that I submitted:
