Meet Woodbine's legendary track photographer, Michael Burns Jr.
While at Woodbine Entertainment I’ve often found myself working in close quarters with Michael Burns, but I haven’t ever really had the chance to chat with him for any extended period of time. While shooting this feature I basically shadowed Burns for a couple days, so naturally we had a lot of time to talk. It was a great opportunity for me as a photographer to see how he works and pick his brain. I had a great time following him around and getting some insight into his daily workflow. Not only is he an amazing photographer but he is also a stand-up-guy.
I was blessed with some amazing light on a few of these shoot days which was really great, especially when you’re telling the story of a photographer. Below are a few screen grabs of the incredible light we were blessed with.
This feature was shot for the TSN Woodbine Mile Show which aired on September 14, 2019.
