  1. I work a couple of days a week a the local country club as a ranger and starter. When I'm out on the course I usually take my camera with me and photograph the members and guests. Well, last week we had ar Jr. PGA event and I took pictures of the kids. I posted them online for everyone to see and I get an email from the exectutive director of the PGA for this section asking me if I would like to photograph their PGA events for the remainder of the year. They pay expenses plus a stipend which I thought was quite generous and I retain copywrite and get full credit for the photos,
    After a long time thinking about it(2 sec) I said yes. My first event is on Monday and usually one event a week until the end of October. Who knows,maybe next year I'll be at Torry Pines for the US Open.

  6. Ted, that's outstanding...congratulations!
  7. Congrats Ted, fantastic! :biggrin:
  8. Thank you all. I'm shooting the D200 with an 80-200 f/2.8 lens. I'm still getting used to the lens and most of the shots of the kids were taken with a Sigma 400 mm f/5.6 manual lens because I didn't have the 80-200 yet. It's a little tricky to get it spot on but I managed. When I come down to earth I'll let everyone know.

  9. That's awesome, congrats! Sure wish that would happen to me...
  10. I am very happy for you.
  11. Congratulations,

    WOW, how cool is that, may be the start of a new carrier.:smile:
