Charlotte, NC-based photographer Peter Taylor shot golfer Webb Simpson for a special issue of Italian magazine Style Milan.
Back in May, I got a call from an agency that I havenâ€™t done work for. They needed a photog in Charlotte and had found me through the Google, liked my work, and was it ok if they pitched me for a gig. I said sure, of courseâ€¦who is the client, what is the shoot, etc, etc. The magazine was Style Milan from Milan, Italy, and it was a special issue called Style Golf. The shoot was a professional golfer.
It was a profile of professional golfer, Webb Simpson. Even though I am not a big golf fan, I had heard of Webb. He had a great run at the Wells Fargo Championship here in Charlotte. And he lives here in Charlotte. I thought this would be a great gig, something fun, and a chance to make some great photos. The shoot would be styled by Ralph Lauren, who are one used to be one of Webbâ€™s sponsors. Found out he just signed with Izod last month. At the last moment, I thought that this would make a good shoot to have a behind the scenes video made. I made a call to my friends Geoff and RC at La Storia Productions, and they were in!
