Last week I had the fortunate opportunity to attend the 2012 U.S. Open and meet up with renowned Sports Illustrated photographers Robert Beck, Fred Vuich and Kohjiro Kinno. Lowepro was on hand to help support our pros out in the field during this prestigious event. The insight and working knowledge these pros provide helps us make sure we are delivering the products that professional photographers need to do their job. Kohjiro is shown here shooting a golfer on hole 17 using his Lowepro S&F Lens Exchange 200 AW.
Here at Lowepro, we not only work with professional photographers, we are photographers. Being able to shoot at such a high profile event was exciting on a personal level as well. Shooting golf has its own set of unique challenges and rules. Silence is king as well as making sure you have the right glass. Having at least a 70-200mm lens is a must. Getting inside knowledge from seasoned pros on the best locations to get “the shot” was priceless.
These photos were taken with a Canon 5D Mark III, 70-200mm f/2.8 and the 16-35mm f/2.8.
