after over 10 years shooting rugby league and football i had an opportunity to attend a race meeting at beverley races and to be honest i loved it !!
my question is are there any togs on here that cover horse racing ? i would love to get more involved in the sport, so if anyone could help i would like to know how to gain accreditation for race meetings, and generally get behind the scenes at a meeting ie stables, saddling enclosure etc
heres hoping someone can help
thanks
steve

I wouldn’t know but I do know that many in the horse world are friendly and approachable. If it were me, I’d just ask around - people like stewards, grooms and so on and, of course, other photographers.

I doubt you’d be able just to register and pick up a press pass but you never know. As in any genre of photography, you usually have to gain a good reputation before people will start asking for your photographs.
