Yesterday was my 9th Kentucky Derby and possibly the steamiest one I remember. It was also my 13th major horse race setting up and operating multiple cameras to capture the finish. This year I used six cameras firing simultaneously to cover the race.
I’m neither the sharpest tool in the shed, nor am I some sort of savant… but I can tell you one thing you shouldn’t do. When 20 photographers are trying to shoot the favorite at the Kentucky Derby, don’t take a picture of yourself while standing in everyone’s background.
Last night I shot a music Video for Nehemiah Akbar’s pop single Make My Move with my new Canon 5D Mark III cameras.
