Mike Hyde launches Carefree Golf Photography to help golf clubs grow

1.23pm 31st July 2020 - Corporate

People play golf for different reasons but spending time on the course stirs emotion in all of us, and Carefree Golf Photography believes that original golf photography should be no different.

Founded by a golf obsessive, Carefree Golf Photography is founded on two core principles. A passion for capturing the magic of golf courses, and a belief in the power of compelling golf course photography to generate commercial returns.

Carefree Golf Photography’s services for golf clubs include:

As well as original photography, the company offers wider marketing, communications and branding support to help clubs maximise the impact of their new imagery.

Founder Mike Hyde left his role as communications manager at the Golf Club Managers’ Association in January after six years, having regularly contributed course and portrait photography to the organisation’s monthly members’ journal The Golf Club Manager.

He hopes that experience in the golf industry, combined with nearly 10 years professional photography experience, offers him a fortunate blend of expertise, commenting:

“I have always been frustrated with the number of golf clubs that don’t have strong marketing imagery. Every golf course has the potential for evocative photography that can entice new customers. It’s also a really easy problem to fix! Within 48 hours of a photoshoot with us, clubs will have their new photos for use on their website and social media platforms.”

The company proudly adheres to a number of core values, starting with a commitment to creating outstanding imagery and offering excellent value. However, being dependable and enjoyable to work with is equally important, and the company is committed to building long term relationships.

Carefree Golf Photography recently completed a commission for sunset photography at Leamington and County GC in the heart of Warwickshire. Club Manager Bryan Frazer, commented. “Our brief was very simple – make the course look great! Mike arrived at the agreed time and then waited a further two hours for light to meet his exacting requirements. We were so pleased with this level of professionalism as the results are stunning. Without question the best set of images we have ever seen of the course. I would have no hesitation in recommending Carefree Golf Photography to any golf club looking to enhance their profile through stunning photography.”

With a base in the Midlands, Carefree Golf Photography is available for commissions across the UK, Europe and Middle East.
