Our favourite golf course photographers
Behind every golf course animation and image we create there is usually a strong source of inspiration. Occasionally this comes from our own experiences of being on a golf course, but most often from golf course photographers.
We use their work as a source of reference for bunker styles, water edges, grass types and imperfections that you find in reality (and a photograph), but rarely in a rendered image or animation. We also observe course photographers to learn the technical elements that combine to create a great image, such as composition, colour balance and lighting. However the photographers we love are those that show more than just a technical understanding, they capture the character of the course and emotion of being there. This is what we try and introduce into our images and animations – albeit before the course has been built!
The following photographers are amongst our favourites:
We had a great response to this post so we thought it might be helpful to add other course photographers we know of, to create a more comprehensive list.
If we’ve missed someone please let us know and we’ll add them to the list.
