My golf club work has been growing through referrals which is great. It's usually club portraits I photograph by setting up a mini studio in the club and having their captains, presidents and committee members come through for their head shots.
Tony the manager at Copt Heath Golf Club had booked me earlier in the year to photograph portraits but this time he called me back to update the imagery of the club and grounds.
We booked in a date but the weather had been really unpredictable, we had to rearrange the shoot a few times before we had a good day for taking the outdoor photographs. It was well worth waiting for though as the weather on the day turned out to be glorious. I was given a quick tour of the course by golf buggy. I discovered how beautiful the course is, with it's meandering tree lined fairways, a pond and the perfectly manicured greens. I'm not a golfer but I can see why it's rated as a great course and it's in such a great location too, really easy to get to right off junction 5 of the M42. Anyway, I was left with the golf buggy to help get me zip about the grounds - which was fun! I worked my way around on the rough, taking photos as I went. Part of the shoot included catching up with the groundsmen on their tea break, capturing a team photo. I don't think they'd had a photo recently so Tony was keen to get one of them, it's these guys that keep the place looking so immaculate. After taking a few different group shots of them I headed back towards the club house. As I returned to the putting green I noticed there was a Brewin Dolphin golf day just just about to start, with Stratsone Aston Martin Derby exhibiting so I took the opportunity to take a few photos there too. While back at the clubhouse I saw a few features I'd not seen before so snapped them, detail shots which are always useful especially for incidental website imagery. A lot of the scenes were really wide, so I felt the best way to collate the landscape to it's best advantage was to take panoramics.
