One of the types of shoots I am often asked to do is photograph golfers at Bandon Dunes. I love a great day outside, walking the (6 MILE!) course and getting to know a group of guys who consider Bandon Dunes Golf Course to be their Golfing Mecca.
There are a lot of reasons people hire me to shoot their round. For most it's a once in a lifetime trip. Bandon Dunes is world renowned, and it's no easy task to get here! From the East Coast it's easier to get to Scotland than Bandon! :) But once you arrive this place pulls you in and wins you over. Many of these golfers do travel the world for the sport. Playing rounds from Scotland to Pebble Beach to Bandon, and never actually take any photos of their round! It's a lot to think about, the courses are tough and require a lot of concentration, photos take a back seat to a low score. I take the job of documenting their adventure seriously. I take photos of the tee shots, the putt planning, the reactions to the thrill of victory as well as the agony of defeat. Details like the yardage markers, bags set up over the sweeping vistas, and their drinks of choice for the round. I love the walk and the camaraderie, it's truly a special event for me as well.
This group of guys was from Chicago, North Dakota and Indiana and had the round of their lives. It was a pleasure to be a part of it! With 18 holes, 12 golfers and two photographers, this is but a very tiny taste of the images we captured! You can check out a few more >>>HERE<<<
Golf Documentary Photography is definitely an adventure! If a round at Bandon Dunes is on your bucket list, please contact me to document it for you. It's a trip you'll never want to forget!
