The way I do it

If I shoot 24×36, 6×6, 4×5″ or any other format, 9 times out of 10 I compose and fill the full frame. Just a way I started many years ago and just a way I still work.

From yesterdays races at Bro Park. Enjoy!

All smiles

Some like to get their faces dirty. Like some jockeys. Yesterday was an evening on the dirt track, and though it was really dirty there was a very friendly and good atmosphere. Many of them realised the situation and my interest in their dirt covered faces. I think they really enjoyed it. However the evening races are tricky with the flood lights. I am looking forward to another day race soon.

Start me up!

Yesterday was the final race before my exhibition at Jägersro in Malmö upcoming Sunday the 16th. I concentrated on the start. The starters are cool people. Not all horses like to go into the boxes, so some need help to get in. Horses are strong and you better watch out for kicks. One of the first thing I was told when I started photographing horse races was that there is no start car. On the dirt track, or grass, the horses are accelerating so much quicker. The starters has to be quick too. When all the horses are in the boxes they just want to get out of there and race.

Now my biggest problem for the exhibition is to make my final selection of images from all the thousands that I have. There will be just 10-12 to be exhibited.

The first Lady Jockeys’ Thoroughbred World Championship was held at Bro Park yesterday evening, on the 4th of July. Exciting! We had a french winner, Maryline Eon. One more competition before making choices and printing for The Derby at Jägersro.

Here is my selection of images from the event. It happened to be many telling eyes.

My choice

Yesterday the 6/6 was our national holiday here in Sweden with the annual horse racing at Gärdet, Nationaldagsgaloppen. The sun was shining and people came with blankets, picnic and wine. Or just water. It was a warm and hot day. I think the jockeys enjoyed themselves competing much closer to their audience and fans. There are not so many races on grass, so I like this, and dirt track is mostly not enough dirty …

Here is my selection from the exciting day. 😊 🏇 ☀️  Pelle
