Danny Campbell, Commercial Director at St Andrews Links, said: “We have worked with Kevin on a number of projects and have always been delighted with his ability to capture not just the natural beauty of the golf courses here but also the essence of the place.
“We feel it’s the right time for the Links to have a relationship of this nature and we could not ask for a more talented photographer than Kevin, who appreciates and understands the values we hold so dear here in St Andrews, to be official photographer at the Home of Golf.”
Kevin, whose work is fine art based, has made a major impact on golf course photography with his commitment to capturing the real beauty of the world’s golf course, not least the courses in St Andrews.
He said: “I have been fortunate to visit and work in St Andrews on many occasions. There is no better place to come and photograph so when the opportunity arose to become the first-ever photographer to have this kind of relationship with St Andrews Links I jumped at the chance.
“I look forward to trying to capture the real essence of the golf courses, the people and the unique and special place it has in the hearts of so many the world over. It’s a real honour today to have been given this title and I am thrilled to be its first recipient.”
