Clineschmidt, Glaccum and Sherman took the top three Action photos in the Photo Contest

Jodie Clineschnidt, Ellie Glaccum and Nikki Sherman placed first, second and third in The Horse's Photo Contest, Action category. Honorable Mention photos will be run through the rest of this month.

Candid and Pet photo winners will be announced in mid-January, and Candid photos Winners and Honorable Mentions will be posted through February with Pet photos featured in March.


JODIE CLINESCHMIDT of Perkiomenville, Pa., took the winning Action photo of Boyd Martin of Cochranville, Pa., on Tsetserleg at the Land Rover Kentucky 3-Day Event last spring.

She used a Nikon 750 camera to get this dramatic close-up shot of Martin's determination.

"I've been taking photos for most of my life," said Clineschmidt. "I'm an amateur, but I belong to  the Upper Marion Club for photographers.

"We meet Wednesday evenings, three times a month in King of Prussia. It's a fun group. At the last meeting of the month, there's a judged competition.

"The other photograph that I submitted to The Horse (of Ryan Wood, which our subscribers will see in a few days) did really well at the Wilmington International Competition and got a ribbon," said Clineschmidt. I'm going to enter this photograph this year."

ELLIE GLACCUM of Unionville, Pa., won second place in the Action category with a photograph of Mr. Stewart's Cheshire Foxhounds' Huntman Ivan Dowling jumping a line fence out of Broadlawn towards Newark Rd., with his hounds following him.

The photo was taken with a Canon EOS 40 during last fall's cubbing season.

"It was a great day," said Glaccum. "Three foxes all came out of Broadlawn that day, It was something special seeing the foxes and hounds where Mrs. Hannum used to live."

"My camera died at the end of that day," said Glaccum, who got a replacement and sent in a number of additional photos, including a number of excellent fox pictures.

Glaccum is the Secretary of Mr. Stewart's Cheshire Foxhounds, and she also sent in winning photos for  last year's Photo Contest.

NIKKI SHERMAN of Willow Grove, Pa., took this photo of Uptowncharliebrown during the Diamond B Farm open house in February 2018 with a Canon 7D and f/2.8 70-200 lens.

Sherman is the Marketing Director for the Pennsylvania Thoroughbred Horseman’s Association, which is based at Parx Racing.

She is a freelance photographer, so she says she supplements her marketing work with her photography, which is actually what her college degree is in.

"I regularly take action shots as the track, as well as conformation photos of retiring racehorses for our Turning for Home program." said Sherman. "Through the racetrack, I hooked up with Uptowncharlybrown Stud, and I was shooting for them at the Diamond B Farm open house. Both for them and for private clients at the track, I do conformation and headshots (specifically black backgrounds).

"I’ve been shooting since I was a kid. The first thing I ever remember taking pictures of was the 1994 Pennsylvania Derby when I was 9 years old, on a terrible film camera. I’ve since shot for the Daily Racing Form, Mid-Atlantic Thoroughbred, and many other track photographers, which has led me to be published in a lot of other industry magazines. But I’m happy now at Parx with regular day to day happenings. I’m done traveling.

"I’m trained for people portraits, but I don’t really have the opportunity to take the kind of shots I’d like," said Sherman. "I am more ESPN Mag portraits of athletes for my style."
