POTD 03.08.19 - Stills day at Woodbine

Giddy up, it’s the long weekend!

The other day I set down the video camera and picked up the stills camera at the racetrack. I took some time to grab some images for Woodbine Entertainment. Kudos to the track photographer. Getting these kind of shots is not as easy as it might look. If you miss the perfect moment, that’s it, because the horses are long gone!

Here are a few of my favourite stills from that day.

TSN Prince of Wales Feature - Brooke Hubbard and One Bad Boy

Brooke Hubbard and One Bad Boy attempt to win the second jewel of the Canadian Triple Crown. I had the chance to hang out with Brooke and talk to her about her 2019 Queen's Plate win and what has led her to this moment.

This feature aired on TSN on June 23, 2019. Unfortunately for Brooke and One Bad Boy they took a second place finish. Not bad, but this means there will be no Canadian Triple Crown winner this year.

This may have been one of my favourite features that I’ve had the pleasure of shooting for TSN/Woodbine Entertainment. It was turned around really fast, but I’m happy with how it ended up looking.

This was all shot on the Sony FS7. Love that camera. Enjoy!

2018 Season coming to an end

Just like that, another season has come and gone at Woodbine. It's been a great year for me as an EFP videographer with Woodbine Entertainment. When you're working hard and enjoying what you do, time seems to go by all too fast. It feels like just yesterday we were shooting promotions for The 159th Queen's Plate, and now the action at the track is coming to a close. It's always a good idea to take some time to slow down and think about everything that happened over the last year, so I decided to do just that. I grabbed the slow motion camera (SONY FS7 for those who are curious!) and went out for a day of shooting on the grounds. It was the perfect way to reflect back on the 2018 season.

Cheers to all my friends and colleagues at Woodbine!
