The level of energy at Battle Of Hastings 2017 is hard to describe. You really just have to be there to fully grasp how intense it is. As for the riding, it’s chaotic, with people going every which way all over the course. There are literally no dead spaces in the park. How does all of that translate into photos? Well, for one thing, it’s sketchy being out there on the course, running around with a light stand in each hand and a camera around your neck—I had more close calls at BOH than I’ve had covering all other contests combined. Ultimately, I spent most of my time filming because, but I couldn’t not shoot photos at some point, so I nabbed a few during practice sessions. Enjoy.
