>1000 Acres in Three Days

November 18, 2010

>
We just returned from an extensive shoot at a lovely property, Selah Inn at the Ranch in east Texas. We had the enormous (but fun!) task of trying to get a photographic overview of this property for a upcoming new website…in just three days. That ain’t easy when you are dealing with 1,000 bucolic acres, 14 lakes, a full disc golf course, 12 rooms and suites, 3 cottages, incredible grand common spaces and a large separate event facility. Good thing we had 6 or so golf carts at our disposal to get around.

They say everything’s bigger in Texas. It is not a myth.

We shot all of the above as well as some great family and couple shots. Whew! World Championship disk golfer John Houck was on the property helping them develop their course, so we photographed him in action too (for those who ask…what is disc golf??) When this project is complete, they will have 2 championship 18-hole disc golf courses. John says it will probably be the best of its kind in Texas.

2nd grader and budding photographer James Hickerson, grandson of the Owners of Selah Inn, gave us a hand in shooting a few of the fire-pit pictures….you can see his handiwork in the short -Phone video Mark captured below:
