Photographer Bob Mayberger of Eclipse Sportswire was given the 2011 Media Eclipse Award for photography at the end of 2011. Full details are available at the Daily Racing Form’s site. Primarily a horse racing shooter, Mayberger used a Nikon D300 camera with a fisheye lens on the steeplechase course remotely triggered by PocketWizard Plus II radios.
Taken on May 4, 2011 at Saratoga Race Course, his winning shot was just one of 225 races he covered that year. You can see more of Mayberger’s work at the Eclipse Sportswire site. The Eclipse Award, although similarly named, has no connection to Mayberger’s wire service. Congrats, Bob!
