Recounter: Showcasing Scotland’s World Class Golfing Landscape
When we launched the golf buddy trip photography concept back in 2012, I remember brainstorming various names that would best represent the brand we were soon to launch. Recounter was born and Collins English Dictionary could not have defined it any better: “someone who recounts or narrates a story”.
Throw in our unobtrusive and reportage style of photography and we had a service that we hoped would capture the imagination of golfers coming to play Scotland’s iconic golf courses – documented in a fine art handmade in Scotland table book. And the underlying objective; helping passionate golfers relive their Scottish golfing Recounter for life via a handmade book they could pass through future generations.
Through our strategic partnerships with leading golf tour operators, we are honoured that hundreds of golfers around the world have their Recounter Handmade book on display, and each book helps our industry showcase Scotland’s world class golfing landscape.
With St Andrews being my hometown and place of birth, Open Championship’s there are always extra special. For those who subscribe to Golf Monthly or follow St Andrews Links social channels, keep an eye out on Open Championship related features/posts – you might just see some of our photography.
Thanks to those who viewed our Scottish Golf Awards official photography gallery and to all participants of the recent inaugural Allianz Old Course Tournament – we captured lots of highly emotive moments which really helped evidence what it really means to play the Old Course.
