Sharing  fun and not so fun vignettes into the life of a commercial photographer.

GRAEME MCDOWELL

Recently I had the pleasure to shoot one of sports Gentlemen, Graeme McDowell. It was an unusually cold and wet early summer day in Portmarnock Golf Course when we drove up to the club house and we spent the first hour snooping about the interior looking for a good plan b should the heaven's decide to open on my course idea. 

That's when my assistant and I found out about the no jeans policy in golfing club houses. 

The grey clouds loomed but luckily there was no downpour and we got a few shots that were fit for the Magazine Cover and a decent interview slot.

One thing I never knew about shooting sponsored celebrities is even if the light is hard to get under the sponsors cap, the sponsors cap isn't coming off.

Until you are in the club house that is. Thankfully they didn't kick me out or make me take my jeans off. Instead they gave me tea and biscuits. How civilized.
