In Play with Jimmy Roberts produced a look at the happenings of what it takes to be a professional golf photographer and lets us in on some of the background stories and details of working the pro circuits.
The feature showcases photographers David Cannon, Fred Vuich, Streeter Lecka, Leonard Kamsler, Dom Furore and Scott Halleran in this behind the scenes looks at what it takes to be a professional golf photographer and some of the hurdles that photographers have to work around.
Stories range from walking 10-12 miles a day shlepping camera gear around the courses to multiple confrontation with the players they are there to photograph. We even get to see a quick clip of a camera being yanked out of the crowd for capturing photographs and hear about a golfer giving a photographer the finger.
You can also find the video here but fair warning, the player is janky at best so just hit play and try not to scrub, it is more of a headache if you do.
