Instant Classic – by Rob Matre

I’m always thinking about the backdrop in my photographs, and what better backdrop than the visually intriguing  Seaside Course at Sea Island Golf Club?  I tend to shoot from an artistic perspective, and I usually present my images in black & white or sepia tones.  I am trying to create an instant nostalgia, and again, Sea Island and The McGladrey Classic lent itself perfectly to that endeavor.  For this group of photographs, I’ve taken it a step further, achieving a vintage, antique quality through alternative filters and processes, using the rich history of Sea Island and the new tradition of The McGladrey Classic as my inspiration.

The McGladrey Classic is unique among the other golf tournaments I’ve shot over the years, and if there is one thing that stands out it would be the leisurely pace that continues to define the Golden Isles experience.
