Sandra Gal LPGA

Sandra Gal and Holly Sonders

Holly Sonders worked with the LPGA’s Sandra Gal in March of 2014 for Golf Channel’s Playing Lessons.  The filming took place at Keene’s Point in Orlando, Florida.

Gal was joined by family and friends as videographers documented Gal’s tips on the golf course. There was also dialogue about life as an LPGA tour pro, upbringing and goals.

Christina Kim

Christina KimAnimated.  flamboyant, outgoing, colorful, successful.  Depression?

The Golf Channel called me to be the still photographer on the set of  LPGA’s Christina Kim’s appearance on InPlay with Jimmy Roberts.  Damon Hack was the show host.

The interview took place at ChampionsGate, a golf resort in Orlando, Florida.  Two adjoining rooms were set up with monitors, make up, cameras and lighting.

On camera with Damon Hack, Christina spoke about her successes, upbringing, family, style and golf. She also spoke of her depression, which she wrote about in her blog last year. Her good friend Michelle Wei also stopped by the set, and spoke about her relationship with Christina.  It was cool to be in the room with two of the games superstars.

Off camera, Christina took an interest in my Canon 5DMarkIII camera, and said she loves photography.

On the way to the next location to hit golf balls, I asked Christina if she had a minute to pose for a quick photo.  (Above)  Hotel staff was setting up some “grass” covered chairs for an event later in the day, and I simply thought it looked cool.

After a few jokes on the way back to her vehicle, Christina was on her way.  It was a great experience with one of golfs brightest stars.

Brittany Lincicome for Kate Lord

I was excited when Kate Lord / Ahead representatives contacted me about making portraits of LPGA Tour golfer Brittany Lincicome for their advertising. Attached is a screen shot from the Kate Lord website, featuring my photo. I photographed Brittany at Grand Cypress Golf Club in Orlando on the Tuesday before her tournament. I used my Profoto 7B and Elinchrom octobank. Brittany was a pleasure to work with, and tied for 21st in the tournament.
