Dunning Golf

Now in our second year of an ongoing collaboration with Dunning Golf, Mackie Studio travelled to the Trump International Golf Links in Scotland with Dunning's Director; Ralph Dunning, Jennifer Stender Hawkins and in-house photographer Karl Mackie, flying in from Canada, New York and Cornwall. Flying in from Belgium was our subject - pro golfer Nicolas Colsaerts.

Shooting for Dunning's winter collection, the destination of the Trump International Links Golf course was chosen for its coastal location and most importantly its misty, cold climate. We knew Dunning wanted minimal and we knew they wanted gritty. We shot the entire campaign over 3 days using prime lenses on a 35 - 85mm range.

Under the creative direction of the Dunning brand we were able to produce content that has surfaced as both engaging and creative as we continue to push the boundaries of traditional golf photography.
