John and Jeannine are meticulous about their work, often waiting hours or days for the perfect light and sun angle to showcase a golf hole’s most subtle characteristics. To get their best pictures, they usually begin photographing courses just after sunrise or just before sunset. While their technique and perseverance enables them to have technically beautiful photographs, their true talent lies in capturing the essence of golf design.
