Royal Ascot

This was the kind of dream commission that comes along once-in-a-while, to spend a couple of days at Royal Ascot, shooting the sporting and social culture for an international publication. There’s something wonderfully unique about Royal Ascot – it’s a concentrated few days of complete English-ness where the spectators are just as much a part of the show as the horses they come to watch. And from a photographer’s point of view, it’s great in that people actively show off to the camera – no sneaking around required. The biggest challenge was actually getting images of the horses and the sporting action itself.
