Over the last twenty years, former PGA Professional Evan Schiller has established himself as one of the premier golf course photographers in the world. Shooting from the ground, lifts, helicopters, and now drones, Evan brings a fresh perspective to each project he undertakes. He thoughtfully scouts each course with the intention to capture its unique features and nuances under the most optimal lighting conditions possible. Evan has photographed hundreds of championship courses in the United States, with extensive work in Hawaii, as well as courses across Canada, Mexico, the Caribbean, Ireland, Scotland, South Africa and Japan. He has captured and left his own distinctive mark on some of the most recognized tracks around the world including Pebble Beach Golf Links, Augusta National Golf Club, The Old Course at St. Andrews and Ballybunion Golf Club in Ireland. In anticipation of hosting the 2012 Ryder Cup, Medinah Country Club commissioned Evan to shoot Course #3 to build-out their photographic media portfolio. In 2014, Evan returned to Medinah, at their request, to photograph the newly renovated Course #1.
Evan’s 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. His photography is 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 Awards for “Scenic Photography” and “Graphic Design” in 2013 and 2014 from the Calendar Marketing Association’s 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, five star resorts and public golf courses worldwide.
