I've never been to Ascot, even though I live just down the road in Reading. Being a Berkshire based photographer I find that quite surprising, as it is often used as a venue for events, which I do cover in addition to weddings. That changed a few weeks ago when I was booked to photograph a 50th Birthday celebration there. I hadn't realised we were in the King Edward enclosure at the top, but luckily I packed a tie or they wouldn't have let me in. I mostly used an XPro-2 and X100F to take the photos as they are quite discreet and I didn't want to stand out from the crowd in order to get some great candids. It was a great day, finished off perfectly by going to the cinema with my wife and son to watch Guardians of the Galaxy 2!!
