But wanted to share with everyone! If you read Sports Illustrated, I had a pic published in the May 3rd issue! I believe it's page 9-10 of the horse and rider. I love to photograph horses, my favorite hobby and in the past year it's become a part time job. I mostly do thoroughbreds - racing at our local track where I am credentialed, and the local sales. This is considered the horse capitol of the world, so lots of options. April is a busy month for me for our local racemeet - no Kentucky Derby this year, but I am okay with that. I did the Rolex Three Day Event at the Kentucky Horse Park at the end of April, and that was just as exciting as the Derby! Well at least I think so. It was just so much fun. I'd never worked an event like that before, nor do I know anything about horse shows. I've always had an interest in watching the jumping though. The pic published in Sports Illustrated is one in a series I took. A horse and rider fell at one of the jumps, and the horses rear end landed on the guys head/neck! He happened to be one of the leading riders in Europe. I've had things published overseas when I used to do some work for a publication over there, but this was my BIG breakout here in the US, and those pics ended up all over the world. THANKFULLY horse and rider were okay - rider had lots of fractures, but he was released the next morning and returned home to recuperate. I would not have been so happy with my pics being published everywhere had they been seriously injured. Anyway, I just thought I'd share. I am pretty much on idle until the July yearling sale, so I'll probably end up pestering our does to no end with my camera until then...LOL Here is a link to my 'horse' pics if anyone is interested... http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/collections/ If you go to the Rolex Cross Country here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/[email protected]/collections/ Scroll down to the third row of sequence photos and look for Ashland Cruise Master and Oliver Townend2.1 The first pic is the one in sports illustrated. He was wearing an inflated vest <works like an air bag when rider seperates from the horse>, and he's positive he didn't get hurt worse thanks to the vest. I still have CHILLS every time I think about looking at these pics... Anyway, thanks for listening to me ramble!
