I had the wonderful opportunity to photograph the first full time LPGA Tour player from Iceland at Grand Cypress resort in Orlando on Wednesday, January 18, 2017. I made some putting, bunker, reaction and driving photos. We also made some portraits for my client. Olafia arrived at 3pm, got a little make up on and then met us at the executive three hole course at Grand Cypress.
It’s great to ask a tour pro to drop a few sand shots in front of the camera, and it actually happens. Doing the same for amateurs is downright scary and dangerous. These pro golfers are fantastic to work with, and always the nicest.
It was great to hear from the client the next morning, saying how happy they were with the work.
Olafia has a beautiful swing that I predict will do very well on tour this year.
