Feature Photo: Beautiful morning light on the 7th at Pebble. Such an amazing week shooting at this magical place.
I love coming to Pebble Beach and this week was no different. Although I’ve been here to shoot on numerous occasions, it is never quite the same and it always a thrill. Great to be back on the Monterey Peninsula ….and, what a beautiful first morning it was. So many great views, but I particularly love this one looking down the 9th & 10th with Carmel Beach in the distance.
I’ve photographed the 6th hole on numerous occasions but until I owned a drone I was unable to capture this perspective.
First light on the last morning shooting Pebble Beach Golf Links. An amazing week shooting at one of my favorite places and then to capture this early morning photo from behind the 8th was icing on the cake…..
The 9th at Pebble…Last day…..last light…..last shot. What an amazing week shooting at one of my favorite spots.

Evan Schiller has been involved with golf in one way or another since he was 5 years old, which is when he began playing. Before he became a professional photographer he played tournament golf as both an amateur and professional up until his early thirties. Always with a keen interest in photography, his journey as a professional photographer started on a fairway at PGA WEST in La Quinta, California. It was there while walking down a fairway in the early morning and admiring the beauty surrounding him that he decided he needed to begin bringing a camera with him. Although still as a hobby, he began taking photographs on almost every trip thereafter he made to play a tournament.
Several years later while working at Westchester Country Club as an assistant professional one of his colleagues suggested he sell his photos in the pro shop…which he did. And, the rest, as they say, is history.
25 years later he’s photographed over 600 championship golf courses worldwide. During that time he’s captured images of some of the most recognized courses around the world, including Pebble Beach Golf Links, Augusta National Golf Club, The Old Course at St. Andrews, Royal County Down in Ireland and most recently at Cabot Cliffs and Cabot Links.
Armed with a Hasselblad H6D-50 (one of the most advanced medium format cameras on the market today), he makes creative use of technology that includes ladders, lifts, and helicopters to capture some of his most iconic images. He also incorporates drone photography into his practice to find those unique aerial shots that showcase the artful design of a hole and its connection to a broader landscape, always with the intention of bringing a fresh perspective to every project.
