Today I visited a regular haunt for me in ‘photo-land’ – a field in the middle of no where, but by the village hamlet of Elstead, near Guildford!! I was the official photographer for Elstead Riding Club and the event on 11th October 2009 was their annual ‘Autumn Show’.
We had variable and slightly damp and windy weather, which doesn’t make for ideal equestrian photography conditions. Along with my colleague and second ‘shooter’ called Graham Russell we captured the various classes ongoing throughout the day and spirits were kept up with regular trips to Skips fantastic ‘greasy spoon’ catering trailer.
There was a range of show jumping classes in one ring (that I covered) and two other rings with showing and varied events throughout the day – all of which kept us both fully occupied and pretty tired by the end of the event in mid afternoon.
The images will be available for viewing and sale to the riders and their families very soon.
