In July 2023, The Royal Liverpool Golf Club, Hoylake hosted the 151st Open Championship - the oldest & most prestigious golf competition in the World. Obviously, with such a huge international event landing here on our doorstep there’s a lot of media attention on the club as well as the players.
I was asked by GI Magazine to photograph Links Manager James Bledge and his Greenkeeping team at the course. The photos were used on the front cover and a three-page feature - both print & digital.
The weather was kind that day, I was delighted it was neither too sunny nor too dismal. Perfect conditions for an outside shoot, bright, cloudy - a Tupperware sky - which acts like a giant softbox and makes for a flattering portrait.
I shot the cover image of the full team, hero shots of Bledge, and a series of further team & equipment shots over a two-hour session.
