Grip It and Rip It

Rafael Nadal the golfer? With our PR director I took a small crew to the famed Indian Wells Golf Resort. The tournament had negotiated for a gaggle of photographers to tag along with Rafa while he played nine holes. Rafa was a good sport to let it happen. GoPros in holes, a GoPro mounted to the golf cart. It’s nice to get an opportunity to use the action cams. We shot in slow motion, used a 400mm lens, plus a 16-35mm on a MOVI M5 with an Easy Rig. The drone was out too. It was quite an operation scrambling from hole to hole and setting up gear while monitoring audio on Rafa the entire time. It stands out as probably the hardest shoot in 2016. Minimal time to plan and no PAs running around to carry gear. With that said I like the deliverable a lot. Matthew Hill did a great job second shooting with his Panasonic Varicam. Nadal shared it from his personal Facebook account too.
