Doncaster racecourse photographer

by Services

One of the best things about being a Doncaster racecourse photographer is you get to spend a full day at the races, soaking up the atmosphere and seeing everybody enjoying their day. I have been a Doncaster photographer now for around 10 years. I do live pretty close to the racecourse so it’s always good doing any event at the Doncaster Racecourse as a photographer.

Photography at the Doncaster racecourse

I have been lucky enough to photograph a few events at the Doncaster racecourse. This tie it was the st ledger festival at the Doncaster racecourse. When I arrived there were so many photographers shooting for all different companies.

What’s it like to be a photographer at the Doncaster Racecourse

To be a Doncaster racecourse photographer you definitely need to be able to think on your toes and react to moments instantly. There is so much going off especially on a big race meeting like the st ledger festival. The amount of planning that must go into an event like this is amazing. Been a photographer in Doncaster you do get to see a lot of the work that goes on behind the scenes to make everybody’s day at the racecourse enjoyable.

The atmosphere at the Doncaster racecourse

As soon as you walk into the Doncaster Racecourse you are suddenly hit with an amazing atmosphere. Everybody has been waiting for this day for a full year and you can tell everybody is overwhelmed with excitement. This event creates so much media attention and I’m sure if you are reading this you will know all about it.

I have included some images I took at the Doncaster Racecourse on the st ledger festival. Usually, after the last race, they have either a band or DJ to take the festival into the night. This time they had a DJ and it was great to be the photographer to capture all the action as if happened.

Event photography at the Doncaster racecourse 

With all my event photography my main aim is to photograph in a natural candid style. I like to capture moments as they are happening rather than trying to set up poses. Most of the time, if you are a photographer, people will stop and ask you to take photos of them too. As you will see on my event photography page this is how I photograph all my events and really shows the atmosphere how it was on the day and shows how good a time everybody is having too.
