As an event and portrait photographer I get out and about , capturing those special memories and I must admit I get a real kick photographing events where I get to meet many new faces and often run into some old faces as well. This is no more true than when I photograph equestrian events in and around Canberra.
The smiling faces of old clients I have photographed over many years is always a welcome site. The highlight for me photographing equestrian events is the Pony Club Zone 16 yearly camp that happens at Bungendore just outside of Canberra. This is a week long event where you get to embed yourself with the people that you are photographing and you become a big family. You get to share and photograph their lives where you experience their tears and laughter, birthdays and accidents, as you become a well known figure for the week.
Last year I had the added bonus of photographing the Inter-national mounted games after my week long camp, and I must it was a super busy day as I conducted group photos of around 300 children in the morning, with the afternoon photographing the Inter-national mounted games, and along with their team portraits. It was a fantastic day and something I am, and was very proud to be a part of.
This years camp sounds like it is going to be bigger and better and I will be there capturing all the excitement one frame at a time.
