I have had the privilege of having the Golf trip of a lifetime, twice. My first experience was a wonderful blur with very few pictures for the scrapbook. I was determined to drink in everything on my second trip. This included a desire to have a photo memorial of our round at the Old Course. What a pleasant surprise to find someone who not only made that happen, but was extraordinarily gifted in recording candid and action shots. David Lawrence was the perfect man for the job. David interacted wonderfully with our two foursomes as he moved seamlessly between us insuring that everyone came home with memorable photos that are the subject of discussion even months after the trip. No risk of slow play either with David along as he performed his magic. I cannot recommend highly enough David Lawrence and Foremost Golf Photography. Play well and smile, he will do the rest. Cheers
From the first interaction to our final farewell, David was an absolute pleasure to work with. He's not a photographer, he is truly an ambassador to the region, offering recommendations on everything from where to golf to places to eat and stay. Seeing his images were such a delight as most of the round we didn't even see David and his incognito approach was very much appreciated. Four months later and the group still sends text messages with his images to back up memories.
David it was such a pleasure having you with us today. Thanks for everything you did. Our trip is something we will always remember.
Dave, Once again, you've outdone yourself and these pics are outstanding!! Thanks again for all that you've done and more importantly, your friendship. Talk to you soon. Thanks, Kenny
David- These are amazing! Brings back some wonderful memories for us!
We hired David to photograph our rounds at the Old Course & Kingsbarns. This gentleman is an absolute pro at what he does! Totally unseen while taking photos and there when you needed him for a special request. Our photos were absolutely brilliant! As first time visitors, his knowledge and help of the local area made this a trip of a lifetime. He has become a lifelong friend. Thank youDavid. Scott Davis Federal Way, WA USA
Hi David, I want to thank you on behalf of my crew for joining us. All commented that we enjoyed the time, your sense of humor, and most importantly, your dinner recommendations. Much appreciated. Sincerely, Bill
Hi David, Just to say, from start to finish having you with us photographing was a blast, thank again, Mike
David: The photos are beyond our expectations. I can't wait to share the tablebook with family and friends. The time spent with you was a highlight. Your company, meeting your many friends, your professionalism mixed with fun and laughter. We may have many travel journeys but few have left us with such joyful memories. Thank you for your kind concern for Jim and I. Wish you happiness and much success in the future. Sincere regards, Jim and Diane McGaw
WOW, this is great David! Thank you so much, Best, Clay
I absolutely would, advise anyone on a bucket list golf trip to hire the services of David Lawrence of Foremost Golf Photography to capture the special moments. David is such a Pro ! Very few staged, spontaneous, scenery ......David has a great eye to capture THAT special swing, shot, moment you’d want to treasure. Memories in the Making. I did ........with the legendary Nancy Lopez, her husband, Ed & Tuny of Kingsbarns Golf Links.
Brilliant Day yesterday Brother. Can’t wait to see the pics. Thanks Again. Cheers. Sincerely Always, Rocco Paolucci
Hello David, We are now home successfully! What a wonderful trip. Thanks again! Shawn, Deb, Connor and Derek
We worked with David for the photography for our Gala Golf Classic at Carnoustie and were absolutely delighted to work with such a professional firm. David went totally above and beyond to create results which we were delighted with. This included meeting me for a drink the night before our event to go through the details further and extending the brief to take additional photos elsewhere on the course. The photo results are absolutely brilliant and some of the best quality we have ever received. On top of this, David is a really nice person and a real pleasure to work with. We will definitely be getting in contact for any future Scottish based events which we run. Alan George. Gala Events Thanks, Alan
Hi David ! (I've copied Mike, Chad and Mark on this email, so they can see below and you can get their email addresses.) We had an excellent remainder of the trip!! Western Gailes was a favorite of many in the group, despite the sleet and small hail that we encountered there. It was windy and cool. Dundonald was a nice day... excellent weather and just some wind to manage. We really couldn't have asked for better trip! Except for the 18th hole on the Old Course! Rain... We are grateful to have some great memories captured through your work. It was nice to focus on our golf game knowing that we'd have captured some great shots. We also greatly appreciated that you also took some time to have dinner and drinks with us after our rounds, and share some local knowledge and history. The friendships we made with you and even with our awesome caddies are memories that will stay with us. The sampling of photographs that we've seen so far are amazing! We can't wait to see the rest. As for the tablebooks, I'll get confirmation from Chad and Mike, and then pay you, and I'll just collect the $ from them. Will be easier for me to just pay the invoice you've already posted and collect from them. Cheers from the states! I'm sure we will cross paths in the future. Regards, Dave and Sheryl Oleksa
David was simply amazing...not knowing that a service like this existed, I contacted him through his website just a couple of days before our arrival. Though he had other engagements he asked about our itinerary, suggested some adjustments and even helped contact the course to make some tee time changes. He answered all my questions about fees and accommodated everything I could have hoped. When we got to the courses he was a delight to be around and his photography was exceptional. By the time we had walked with David for three rounds of golf, I considered him a friend. Can't wait to grab a drink next time I am in town. I would highly recommend David if you would like to remember your bucket list trip forever. -Bruce J. Utah
David, The books came today and they look Great ! I still want to download a few pics and have them blown up for framed pictures for my man cave. Thanks for everything and I look forward to coming back. Sincerely, Ken
They say Scotland is like Disneyland for golfers. That being said, David Lawrence is like 'Walt Disney', he makes your dreams come true! David's pictures will give you a memory to share with all your friends and family for life. He makes your round(s) of golf so memorable. He is also such a delight to work with and so punctual. My son and I checked in to the Hotel at the Old Course and within minutes we received a call that David was in the lobby. We met with him and mapped out our itinerary and he met us as planned the rest of the week. We even had some weather that caused us to adjust our schedule and David was with us every step of the way. Having used David, if your a first timer or even a repeat visitor you owe it to yourself to contract David's services. It is priceless! Mike & Jim Brewer Frankfort, IL
I recently made the trip to Scotland and wanted a unique keepsake of my trip. David was the best, extremely accommodating to my schedule and wishes. When I received the table book, I was extremely happy with it. The layout and pictures captured my round on the Old Course. Everytime I look at the book , the memories return. What else could you want! Gary Cole
Hi David, Thank you very much. Have just sent the link. Your photos really captured the great atmosphere of the evening. All the best Kind regards Ian (The Michelin Golf Group)
Hi, David. Once again it was wonderful meeting you. By the way your pictures are outstanding! The pictures are going to one of best things about the trip. I’m so glad we hooked up. Thanks again.
In July 2019, I had the opportunity to play the Old Course in St Andrews. This was a once in a lifetime event for a passionate golfer like me – and was indeed an awesome experience! My wife and daughter also joined me to walk the Old Course. Looking back, the best thing that happened to us was that we found David from Foremost Golf Photography to capture memories of our day on the Old Course. All aspects of dealing with David – from the initial mail exchanges, to defining the itinerary, to payments, to the preparatory meeting before the game, to finally receiving the photos - was very efficiently and professionally managed. On the course, David stayed in the background – doing his work – without any obstruction to play. Most important, the quality of his work is brilliant – each photo tells a story by itself! David is also a very friendly person – and provided us with many tips to make our stay in St Andrews and Scotland so much more enjoyable. David and his work is much recommended.

For our 25th wedding anniversary we planned a golfing trip to Scotland. We were thrilled when Pat's brother arranged for Foremost Golf & Sports Photography to capture the 5 rounds of golf we had scheduled. David met us at Kingsbarns and shared the surprise that had been planned. It was the perfect gift. So many times, you are enjoying your round and Scotland's gorgeous scenery, but scrambling to get your phone out of the bag to get a picture. No worries with David, we could focus on our golf shots knowing that David was creating a memorable record. We would never have gotten a photo of Pat blasting out of a bunker with sand flying. The beautiful coast at Royal Dornoch is one of the most spectacular photos ever. David is truly an artist! He has an incredible eye for getting action shots; and also stages wonderful group photos of your party. And you won't find a more delightful person to work with. Each day he shared the photos taken, and when we returned home; we received a fabulous hardbound memory book. David has become our friend and we highly recommend Foremost Golf & Sports Photography. If you're traveling to Scotland to golf, you won’t be sorry you contacted David.
I was fortunate enough to have David recommended to me by a golf acquaintance when he found out I was going to Scotland. He related his wonderful experience and convinced me to reach out to David. David was great to work with, easy to coordinate with amazingly responsive despite the 6 hour time difference. He was so giving of his time. He met us at a pub in St. Andrews the night before our round at the Old Course so we had a chance to meet and swap stories ahead of time. He fit right in with our foursome like we had known him for years. The day of our round he met us well ahead of our tee time and was with us the entire time. He captured amazing shots both candid and posed. He was in front, behind, close, far even lying on the ground at times to get a variety of angles and perspectives. He is a consummate professional and there was nothing amateur in the quality of the photos we received. I highly, highly recommend David to anyone looking to get more than a handful of canned shots to chronicle their experience. We have hundreds of high quality unique images that keep our memories from fading. It was a pleasure having him with us as he laughed along with us when we hit a bad shot (often) and made us look like pros in spite of them. He makes it easy and simple to get your photos as we just downloaded our entire portfolio in minutes. The entire experience was first rate from our initial correspondence to the follow-up days and weeks after our trip. Jim Young Business Consultant Tacoma, WA
Dear David, Thank you so much for allowing my family and myself your time in St Andrews. We all love the book. With our kindness, Gene
Hi David. The photos you sent along were amazing - thank you! The guys really enjoyed looking them over. We have completed our golf in Scotland and really enjoyed everything about your country. I have now moved on to Ireland where I have met up with my family for some additional vacation time. I look forward to seeing all your photos - you do some great work. Thanks again! Steve
I found Foremost Golf Photography via a Google search for a trip to the Old Course in May 2022. David quickly replied to my inquiry email and informed me that he was available and could easily accommodate my two foursomes. David was waiting for our group on the putting green when we arrived. I was extremely impressed when I saw his photography equipment, to say he’s a professional is an understatement. He had multiple cameras and made us all feel like we were pro golfers. Throughout the round David would pop up from vantage points all over the course, he knew exactly where to get the best shots from. He easily circulated between foursomes and at the end of the round he got us all together for shots on the bridge. Several weeks after our trip the pictures and slideshow were emailed to me and David’s work is beyond my expectations. All of us were blown away by the candid shots he got and the quality of his work. We have all shared our pictures with friends and family and they are impressed and jealous of our experience. I would use David any time and recommend him to anyone who wants to record life long memories. Thank you again for your work!
I recently planned a golf trip to Scotland to celebrate a major milestone and came across David's information and photography services. I was instantly intrigued and reached out to him for more information. David was an absolute delight to speak with and I knew instantly that he would be a great addition to our golf experience. David agreed to photograph our group on four great courses around Scotland and to sum it up - he was truly a pro's pro. He was very flexible when timing didn't work out or when there were any issues during the trip. He was able to capture amazing shots of all of us from so many vantage points...often times we had no idea where he was hiding! He has a great personality and has become a friend in such a short time. He added so much to our trip and his photos are absolutely incredible and really captured amazing moments on the courses. Thank you David!” – Sam
5 Star Rating - what a terrific experience. Far too often things just don’t work out, and nobody is to blame. After almost a 3 year delay due to Covid - our trip of a lifetime to Scotland was finally set to take place this July. Quite a deal of planning went into celebrating my sons graduation and my 50th birthday and it would be highlighted with a round at the old course. When we started to confirm many of these plans - we had a mix up with our schedule and photographry at the Old Course. Crushed by the thought of not having David capturing the memories from this experience - we put our heads together to figure out a plan. Not only did David help us with finding an alternate photographer with his connections - but he took time out of his schedule to come to Carnoustie and shoot our group photos out of courtesy. As with the planning - we went all out and wore knickers - another tremendous memory which David captured. His work is AMAZING, he is incredibly kind and honestly we hardly knew he was there. I can’t recommend his work enough - I only wish I could go to Scotland more often to see and work with him.
We just got back from an Epic golf trip to Scotland and we were so happy that we decided to hire David and Foremost Golf Photography. He followed our two groups around Turnberry, Dornoch, & The Old Course, St Andrews. He met us at St. Andrews for pictures on the Swilcan Bridge. David was great guy to converse with along the course and would sprinkle in advice on where to go in each town. He would also give information on the local history of each golf course and the surroundings. He was truly pleasant to be around and it felt like we knew each other for years. Often times you wouldn’t even notice him taking pictures as he seamlessly moved between our two groups. The galleries he provided were stunning and we are excited to get the matted photos and the souvenir books. A trip of a lifetime will be documented and it turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made in hiring him to follow us around. I hope you consider hiring David. Well worth the money and the memories!
'Quite the best collection I have ever seen" The boys will be delighted! Many thanks again.
A huge thank you to our photographer of our final day David from Foremost Golf & Sports Photography / Foremost Photography
Just scanned all the images. Quite the best collection I have ever seen. Many thanks again, David
We had the privilege to work with David with Foremost Golf Photography during our trip to St Andrews. He provided an extremely professional and accommodating photo shoot at the Swilcan Bridge. He was privy to capturing our lifelong memory on the bridge while being respectful to the playing golfers. The photos turned out amazing! As we’re one happy customer. I would highly recommend David for any photography needs!! Thanks again for capturing our great memory!!
We were delighted by every aspect of the services provided by David and Foremost Golf Photography. David was on time and friendly but best of all - his product is amazing! He went the extra mile by arranging extra opening shot pics at three additional courses that were not part of the contract. A real touch of class. I would highly recommend any visitor playing these iconic courses to use Foremost. At a very reasonable cost you will get the highest quality images that will last a lifetime!
