PHOTO FINISH is a major photographic exhibition showcasing a stunning and unrivalled collection of modern portraiture, a unique and stylish celebration befitting of the 150th running of the internationally renowned Melbourne Cup. The exhibition will be presented within the magnificent Atrium at Crown Melbourne to coincide with the 150th running of the Cup.
For this exhibition I was asked to photograph Dato’ Tan Chin Nam, owner of Australian-based Thoroughbred racehorses and multiple Melbourne Cup winner.
I conceptualised this shot to show his winning trophies and racing silk in a dramatic manner, yet not taking attention away from the man himself. Using a combination of available light and speedlight with snoot, this shot was created in practically 10 minutes.
