Over the last twenty years, former PGA Professional Evan Schiller has established himself as one of the premier golf course photographers in the world.
He has photographed hundreds of championship courses in the United States (with extensive work in Hawaii), Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, Ireland, Scotland, South Africa and Japan, including Pebble Beach Golf Links, Augusta National Golf Club, The Old Course at St. Andrews and Ballybunion Golf Club in Ireland. His work is published in numerous national and international magazines, books and calendars, including The Masters Journal, The US Open Magazine, The Ryder Cup Journal, LINKS Magazine, Golf Digest, Golf Magazine and Golf Course Architecture. Evan's photography is also exclusively featured in the acclaimed books, Golf Courses of Hawaii and Golf's Unfolding Drama. In addition, Evan continues to publish his own award-winning Golfshots calendar, receiving the Gold Award for "Scenic Photography" and the Silver Award for "Graphic Design" from the Calendar Marketing Association's 2013 National and World Calendar Award Competition as well as a 2012 nomination for "Calendar of the Year".
Evan is an officially licensed photographer for The Pebble Beach Company
and his photography of Pebble Beach Golf Links is on display at the Images of Pebble Beach gallery located at The Lodge at Pebble Beach. The dramatic shot Evan captured in 2009 of the 7th Hole at Pebble Beach appeared on the cover of the 2010 US Open program.
From 1983 to 1989 Evan competed in professional tournaments around the world including the Canadian Tour
the South African Sunshine Tour and on the PGA Tour, including the US Open. His unusual combination of experience as a golf professional and photographer provides a unique perspective that is sought after by private clubs, resorts and public golf courses worldwide.
Neal Hotelling, Director of Licensing and Special Projects, Pebble Beach Company
"Evan Schiller has a unique perspective on photographing a golf course. Watching him work at sunrise, capturing the first light as it crests on just the right angle over the new mown grass, you get the sense of a true professional that knows exactly what he wants. And then to witness the delight of guests seeing his beautiful golf photos in the art gallery, you see that he actually knows exactly what they want."
Michael J. Fraser, Executive Director of Sales & Marketing, PUNTACANA Resort & Club
"When it came time to research golf photographers for our newly completed Tom Fazio designed Corales Golf Course, we reviewed several internationally acclaimed experts. After careful inspection of various portfolios and conversation about the golf photographer's vision, we narrowed the search down to Evan Schiller. His easy-going, professional demeanor, unique capture of hole by hole images and prompt return of completed work truly sets Evan apart from all competition. We are completing our third golf course early 2012 and will contract Evan to photograph this spectacular golf course."
Danza Duffner, Director of Communications, Medinah Country Club, Medinah, IL
"In updating our media kit for the 2012 Ryder Cup, Medinah Country Club retained golf course photographer, Evan Schiller, to capture images of our famed No. 3 Course. After considering several other high caliber golf course photographers, we chose Evan, based not only on his excellent portfolio of existing work, but also based on his communication skills, follow through, determination and willingness in every way to work with us, around hectic schedules and a busy golf season. Evan is skilled and dedicated, with excellent follow-through and a keen eye for the golf course and beauty in the shot. Evan's work exceeded our expectations and we are very pleased to display his photography."
"Evan has photographed iconic images of our golf courses over three sessions. Whether shooting from the air or the ground he is able to capture the topography of the land that defines our six golf courses. Always willing to go the extra mile to deliver more than we asked for, he has become a treasured and valued partner."

Philosophy - Seeing and Creating Shots
I scout the course to see the nuances and anticipate light patterns on specific holes
so that I know where to stand for the critical moment when the sun rises and sets. It takes time to understand the timing and angle of the sun's rays on each fairway and green. Taking the time to consider this can make the difference between capturing a good shot and a great one.
Once I've identified the holes and times I want to shoot
I turn my attention to composing the shot, keeping in mind that it might be viewed on a computer screen, in a magazine, a book or as a framed print. I always intend to create a shot where everything flows and is of interest, keeping in mind balance and eye appeal. While it's not a rule, I generally don't photograph from the middle of a fairway. Unless there's something interesting at play like a fairway bunker or shadow, it's not the most intriguing shot.
So preparing to photograph a course is more than a logistical run-through.
It's an opportunity to see beyond just looking. It's seeing with my imagination to anticipate the flow of light and capture its shimmer within finite time frames. This may be where the art of photography lies.
