90% of the time, I shoot on a tripod to get the sharpest images possible. I have a Really Right Stuff TVC-3X tripod and BH-55 Ball Head. This combination is rock solid.
Where Do You Shoot?
I shoot anywhere and everywhere. I genuinely enjoy the travel that my work involves. I love the people, the different landscapes and the overall variety that the travel gives my life. I travel coast to coast, all over the USA mostly, and have also had the opportunity to shoot several wonderful courses in Iceland and in Asia.
Do You Do Any Kind of Photography Other Than Golf Courses?
I do. When I'm not shooting golf courses, my go-to subject matter is landscapes. My wife and I had a home in Utah for awhile a few years ago, and I was fortunate enough to develop a wonderful relationship with Utah State Parks. While we were there I shot images of 23 of Utah's 43 state parks. We also will sometimes travel specifically to do landscape shooting. A couple of years ago, we spent 3 weeks in Maine, which is an amazing place. On my first photo shoot on Maui, at Kapalua, I built in a few extra days and my wife and I explored the island, shooting landscapes. In the summer of 2018, we headed to Iceland, where I photographed 3 golf courses, but mostly the trip was for landscape shooting. Unfortunately, halfway thru our 3 week trip, the retina in my right eye detached and we cut the trip short and flew to Boston for emergency eye surgery. Thankfully, it worked out well. So in the summer of 2019, it was back to Iceland, where I shot only one golf course and spent the remainder of our 3 weeks photographing Iceland's amazing landscapes. In November, I was hired to photograph the new Coore and Crenshaw renovation of Kapalua's Plantation Course, and I was able to find time for some wonderful landscapes and seascapes.
How Long Have You Been A Professional Photographer?
I'm not one of those photographers who can say, "My dad gave me my first Brownie Instamatic when I was 6, and I've been a photographer ever since." I've done many things in my life, and only shot my first "professional" images in 2006. I was hooked very quickly, though, and today I shoot obsessively. I'm totally a digital photographer. I have spent much of my life involved in music and recording, transitioning from analog recording to digital during the 1980s. That experience with digital recording helped greatly as I've developed my digital photography skills. Wth photography, I found my creative sweet spot. This work makes me smile all the time!
The great thing about the cameras I use is that both have huge resolution. The D850 has a 36 megapixel sensor, and the Z7 has a 46 megapixel sensor. That's enormous by any standards. With today's software, significant enlargements can be done with no noticeable image degradation. Image enlargement is almost never an issue with my giant panoramas, since many of them are 2 feet X up to 8 feet wide and larger. Usually, prints of these giant panoramas are actually reductions, so the detail is insane. In fact, I have an image covering a 14 foot wide wall in the Bobby Jones display at The Atlanta History Center, and it looks great.
I love it all. I love the shooting. I love being outdoors, especially at sunrise. The travel is great. I visit some pretty amazing places and meet some wonderful people. But I enjoy the studio work just as much. I wake up every day with a huge smile on my face, knowing I'm one of the most fortunate folks on the planet. I get to do work that I love. Every day.
I don't. My golf course work is all done for hire, and I provide digital images to my clients for use in their marketing communications programs. I shoot for a few different golf management companies, several golf course architects recommend me to their clients, and word of mouth has been very good for me in the golf industry. So I haven't needed to do art shows with my photography.
I know the art show gig very well, though. I spent years, earlier in my life, making a living at art shows... first doing leather products, back in the '70's and then with furniture in the 80's. It was a great lifestyle in many ways, but I no longer feel the need. I'm excited about this eStore, though, and the opportunity it gives me to show and sell my work directly to the folks who will be hanging it on their walls.
While I'm not actively seeking one man shows or gallery shows, I'm always open to new ways to share my work with people who may have an interest. I have a beautiful "art show" display back wall I've used at golf clubs from time to time, so I'm prepared if an opportunity presents itself.
