I photograph golf courses for a very simple reason. I'm a fan of courses of all kinds. Public, private, old golf courses and new, coastal, mountain, parkland… I enjoy them all. If a course is well-designed and well-maintained, there’s no place I’d rather be. I have great respect for the men and women who design, build, maintain and manage golf courses. And I consider it a privilege to help make each property I shoot look its best.
My clients say I have a unique vision… an ability to capture details other photographers miss... and that I offer new perspectives on familiar scenes, with an ability to use light in a way that accentuates the unique beauty of their properties. My secret is no secret at all. I simply have a genuine love for golf and golf courses, and my goal is to share that feeling with everyone who sees my photographs.
My image processing technique is best described as a “hybrid HDR” process. Each image is a blending of multiple exposures of the same image, resulting in a photograph with greater depth and detail than is possible with single exposure photography. It takes longer… about a week in the studio for every day in the field… but the results are worth the time and effort.

I’m one of those rare individuals who wakes up each morning, excited to begin the day. Whether I’m in the field, shooting, or in the studio editing and processing images, I spend my time enjoying some of the most beautiful places on earth. I’m a very lucky man, indeed.
