I have been fortunate to cover the Sydney race days for News Corp and Australian Associated Press. They are good days to work. The pic desk leaves you to your devices (providing you don’t miss anything important or mix up a caption).
Shoot – edit – file for the 9 races on the calendar.
Most meets in Sydney are at Rosehill and Randwick. Remotes are a must. One camera with a long lens that is handled by the photographer and another camera on a mini pod usually under the rails on a wide or semi telephoto. This camera is linked via remote controllers sent from the photographer.
The process is hit and miss but can offer up some rewarding images similar to the one on the opening page.
