Dave Sansom

2590 Laurelwood Rd Atlanta, GA 30360

Dave Sansom is a highly-regarded photographer who shoots golf courses across the USA and in Asia. He is a preferred course photographer for Troon Golf and Marriott Golf, and works with smaller management companies as well. He also works closely with several golf course architects, who recommend his services to their clients.

Sansom’s specialty is “player perspective” photography. “My goal,” he says,” and is to share the experience of playing a course with the viewer. I don’t want to simply take pictures of golf holes. I want to share moments. And while the majority of my images are displayed on web sites, in newsletters and magazines, I edit each image as if it will become a very large print. This simply means that, along with composition light and color, I’m very concerned with the technical aspects of each image. Each one must stand up to the very close scrutiny of publishers, as well as collectors who purchase large prints.

Sansom’s photographs appear regularly in publications worldwide, including magazines, books, calendars, and PGA Tour event programs. His image of Crooked Stick’s famous 6th hole was the cover image for Sports Illustrated’s 2016 Golf Wall Calendar. He has also had many images placed in By Design Magazine, including multiple covers.

“I love this work”, says Sansom, “largely because I have immense respect for the men and women who design these wonderful landscapes. I consider myself a landscape photographer who photographs golf courses, so when I’m not photographing a golf course, it’s not unusual for me to be wandering a national park, a state park, a random coastline or a forest. But I truly feel most at home on a golf course.”
