Here are some images I took recently of a local San Diego Pro, Chad Bennett. We shot at Maderas Golf Club in Poway, CA which is in North San Diego County.

Most golf images you see in golf magazines whether it be article or ad are very conservative. While this has been the trend in golf for many years due to the demographic of the consumers, the tide is slowly turning. You are starting to see young golfers expressing themselves with bold colors and unique clothing. As a result you are starting to see the same trends in the pro shops and sports specialty stores with the golf merchandise.

That being said I think my style of photography fits the new style we are seeing in golf, so in trying to bring something different to the sport I created some gritty, edgy, black and white images.

I used a 3 speedlight set up in each image during late afternoon sun. The locations of the lights varied based on the location on the golf course and the direction of the sun. To achieve that “Advertising Look” I used the lights to sculpt my subject and create specific shadows.

I just found out that my Portfolio is being featured as one of the Portfolio’s of the month on PDN’s (Photo District News) PhotoServe website.

Every month the feature 10 photographer’s portfolios on the home page of their website. It’s a rotating slide show showing one image and the photographer’s name. You can then click on the image and be taken to their PhotoServe Portfolio.

It’s a great honor as there are a ton of photographers on this site most of which are extremely talented.

I was in Florida recently and did a photo shoot with a local KiteBoarder, Scott. It was mid day and I set up two remote speedlights to compensate for the harsh shadows of the midday sun. I love creating dramatic light but besides in a studio where you have complete control, early morning and late afternoon make it a little easier to manipulate the light. Midday however can be more challenging. Do it right though and you can get some pretty cool results.
