Dr. John T. Whiting is the founder of Golf Event Photos and the principal
photographer. Dr. Whiting has been photographing historical, entertainment
and sporting events for over 20 years.
His photographs of the U.S. Equestrian Team, the AT&T Hunt Race, Woodstock
94, the 125th Anniversary of Polo, the US Women's Pro Ski Tour, Op Sail 2000,
Sail for America, the Trans-Atlantic Sailboat Challenge and the PGA Tour
Saturday Series have drawn significant attention with a number selected for use
in major publications and for exhibition in New York City photo galleries.
Nine of his photographs of Woodstock 94 were included in an exhibition that
toured the world.
Whiting began photographing golf outings over 15 years ago. His unique
approach not only included capturing the outing group and foursomes in
photographs, but he took took the camera onto the golf course to record the
action as the golf event was being played, often catching a golfer
executing a golf shot and the golf ball in flight. He then incorporated
the photographs into a slide presentation that the golf outing participants
could view at the time of the awards ceremony, observing the play of their
competitors and themselves during the outing competition.
Dr. Whiting also pioneered the use of the Internet to share the memories
of the golf outings he photographed by posting the photographs of
the golf event on a special designated web site for the golf event participants,
organizers and golf course hosts to share the memories of the event with
friends, use for the promotion of future events and to download favorite photos
for their personal use.
This unique and personalized approach to photographing golf events has
resulted in Golf Event Photos being the photographer of choice for the PGA Tour
Saturday Series, the Crystal Springs Golf Resort and other golf clubs looking to
provide event participants with something special to make their event
distinctive and memorable.

Dr. Whiting is presently working on his sixth book, "The Search for the 50
Most Beautiful Golf Holes in New Jersey." He has invited over 200 public
and private golf courses in New Jersey to nominate their special golf holes.
A visit to the golf club making a golf hole nomination is then scheduled and
information is gathered about the golf course, the course is played by Dr.
Whiting and his wife Buffy and photographs are taken of the nominated golf
holes. Once published, the book, along with photographs of the nominated
holes will be made available to those golf clubs that have nominated holes and
