Fan Photo of the Week

Fan Photo of the Week by Jack Mancini made with the Sigma 120-300mm F2.8.

The picture attached was shot during Week 6 of the FTI Consulting Winter Equestrian Festival which is a 12 week circuit in Wellington, Florida. This is from “Saturday Night Lights”  Spy Coast Farm $125,000 Grand Prix event. This is a Marquee event which occurs each week.  This photo, captured at 1/640 F4 ISO 4000 is of Liza Finsness, the youngest competitor in the event which is comprised of the top Show Jumping Riders in the world.

  1. HI Andrew, That’s Great. They are good friends of mine. I have been here in Wellington shooting the shows for about 5 years now. I have good friends from that side of the pond. If you Gemma Paternoster & Julia Lee with GBR Sporthorses, please tell them hello. If you ever get over to this side during FTI WEF, you have to come by. It is really an incredible event. They also hold the Global Dressage Festival and Polo form the International Polo Club. Within a 3 (mile) radius the best are here all winter.

    I hope to see you here!!!

    Regards,

    Jack
