These images were taken during the May 2015 EquiFest at the William C. Chamberlin Equestrian Center on Abbott Road in Anchorage, Alaska. The Anchorage Horse Council sponsors EquiFest to raise money for breast cancer awareness. It was a bright sunny day with people and horses enjoying the weather.
I shot these photos with my Nikon D600 and Nikon 70-200m f/4 lens. I use a monopod. People did not seem to mind me photographing the event. I should have taken more images of horses since they are so majestic, but I am a people photographer. My goal is to show the world what Alaskans look like. Who knows, world residents might think we look like New Yorkers. I am more interested in the people watching an event than the participants at a gathering. I will remove any photograph upon request by contacting me at email@example.com.
