The Weekly Photo – October 10, 2011

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving! Gobble, Gooble….

Samantha and I recently did some assignment work for Silvertip Golf Resort where we applied our landscape photography skills with some environmental portraiture. Some of our favorite images from the 1.5 day shoot are below. It was really great having two shooters for the assignment so we could handle different angles simultaneously. We don’t play golf (nor can we afford to) so it was fun having run of the course and seeing the big views from each of the 18 holes. Fore!

  1. Excellent work! Love the shadow, the beautiful light… and view!

  2. Cool job – great scenery! And something different from time to time!

  3. A golf course with some incredible views…your photography work can only amplify the beauty surrounding the Silvertip Golf Resort.

  4. Superb work. When you offer the client 18+ quality shots like these – I hope they paid you appropriately.

  5. Very nice work you guys, those shots would make me want to golf there for sure. If I played and could afford it that is… Reminds me of a great bumper sticker I saw recently, “It takes a lot of balls to golf the way I do”

  6. Excellent pictures, you can see that real thought has been put into the composition of the images. However, I have to be honest, I felt mixed emotions when looking at your photos. I grew up and went to school in Canmore. To me, it’s very sad to see the development of a golf course near Mount Rundle, The Three Sisters and Mount Lougheed. There is a continuing loss of animal habitat in the Bow valley. I’m sure that many of the chemicals they use to maintain a golf course when eventually find their way into the Bow river. Canmore has changed so much since I was a child. I guess this is what happens when a beautiful mountain area is outside of a national park. Developers have much more freedom to do as they please.

    • Tom, I agree with you. One thing that really bugs me is that the Feds let Golf courses and Ski hills be part of National Parks. I totally disagree with that policy. Humans by nature tend to occupy the same habitat preferred by wildlife and thus no matter what we do (shopping malls, homes, golf courses) the wildlife looses out. If we want less ski hills, golf courses, malls, etc then the answer is simple, stop rampant consumerism. This brings up lots of ethical and ecological and economic discussions that you will see Sam and me address in the near future with our new joint website.

  7. Great work guys! Especially love that second shot!

  8. Awesome stuff guys!!! I think the resort will be stoked with these results!

  9. Wow. Full of good ideas as portraits and I can see the entrance of the Rocky Mountains, Canmore. Great works, Sam and Darwin.

  10. Excellent set of images guys! I’m sure the client is/will be very pleased with these.

  11. Darren Cook Says:

    Beautiful light! You guys captured some great images out there. Fantastic!

  12. Great set! I don’t golf, but have often thought that a golf course could be an interesting place to hang around with a camera. This proves it.🙂

  13. Fabulous images!!!
