Royal Troon Golf Club

Royal Troon Photographs

The clubhouse at Royal Troon has an atmosphere, spirit and ambience that has grown over time to reflect the values and aspirations of its members. In keeping with these values and the tradition of the club, the design proposal put forward by G1 Architects sought to create a space for dining and relaxation that will endure into the future providing a classical and sophisticated environment. The space has been defined by the use of Oak paneling and down-stand beams and pilasters to create areas within the space that are further refined by features such as library shelving, hand carved limestone fireplaces, lighting, and furnishing to enhance the atmosphere for members and visitors to the Club.

I enjoyed carrying out the photo shoot which was challenging due to the constant flow of people within the space, and the strong contrast in light within the space. Fundamental to the brief by G1 Architects was to capture the atmosphere of the club and I set out to capture this ambience by using a series of manually bracketed and blended exposures using only the available light.
