The principal business of Mick Atkins Photography is to take pictures / photographs / digital images of horse racing events mainly including horse racing but also including third party's and persons involved in the racing industry and also fun and social pictures of racegoers. The aforementioned pictures / photographs / digital images are offered for sale on a commercial basis and on some occasions used for editorial purposes in various media forms and outlets. The over-riding and largest majority of these images form a service to the racecourses we operate at and are as a result of either a newsworthy event or request from the potential client to take the image. In line with GDPR laws, you have the right to choose not to be in these images or remove your permission once the photo has been taken or uploaded. If that is the case please email with your request and providing as much information as possible about the image (i.e. ref number, date, event, etc ). The image will be removed as soon as practicable.
