NAJYRC Day 2

Another great day today. Luckily Lexington is having record breaking lows in temperature…so it’s perfect for me and even better for the riders. This is the first year in a long time that they’ve been able to wear their jackets. USA took gold and bronze in both the junior and young rider team dressage, while Canada took both silvers! Here are a couple shots from today.

Kentucky

Kentucky is beautiful! Today was our first day at the show grounds which are incredible.
I’m down here with my best friend, who owns one of the horses that is competing in dressage with junior rider Lindsay Stuart. That being said my main focus is getting great shots of Lindsay and Unique but, I’ll also be around getting shots of some other riders.
All that happened today was the dressage jog. Tomorrow the show really begins.
Below are my favourite shots from today.

Getting Ready

Today I’ve been pretty lazy…played Sims, watched the World Cup, and of course I’m procrastinating on packing for Kentucky tomorrow. In twelve hours I’ll be waking up and heading to the airport, but before that I have to gather all my gear, do my laundry and update the music on my iPhone.
Below is a picture of some of the gear I’m dragging along with me. My longest lens in my 70mm-200mm and I’m crossing my fingers that it’ll be long enough; I’m trying to travel light so I’m only bringing two other wide lenses, my 16mm-35mm as well as my cheap-o 40mm pancake lens (it may be cheap but it’s my favourite lens to bring along to capture my life day to day). The weather is looking like there will be a lot of thunderstorms so I’m packing plenty of Rainsleeves to protect my body.
Soon enough I’ll be posting from the heat of Kentucky…I don’t do well in heat…

Day 2

Here it is, I’m actually writing for the second day in a row…imagine that!
It’s a pretty exciting time for me right now as I’ll be heading down to Kentucky in a few days to take photos of Lindsay Stuart riding Unique at the 2014 North American Junior and Young Rider Championship. I will be updating the blog daily while I’m down there with writings and a photo or two from the day. I’ve never been to a show this big before so it’ll be a whole new experience! I’ll also be posting photos taken from my iPhone on Instagram throughout the week so head here to follow along Instagram.com/GurrPhotography

 

New Beginning

Hey everyone!
Thanks for checking out my blog. It may be a little sparse right now, but I’m here to change that; with a brand new simple theme.
I’ve decided to step away from only blogging about my work, and give all you readers more in site into my everyday life, while still writing about my photography as well as anything in between (from cats to hyperfocal distance…just kidding I couldn’t explain hyperfocal distance if I tried).
Hopefully I’ll be here writing every few days, so check back regularly!
