Grant Leversha: Within an African Eden
Golf Courses of South Africa
Shortly after starting his career in sports photography in 1992, Grant followed the Springbok Rugby Team when South Africa came out of sporting isolation and covered every Bok game in South Africa and abroad from 1993 to 1997. He was chosen by the RWC’ 95 Champions South Africa to be the official photographer to the team at RWC ’95 and served as official SARFU photographer until 2002.
While Grant still continued to shoot sport, he found his passion in golf course photography in the mid nineties and established himself as the country’s most esteemed artist with a string of awards to his name and his work in almost every golfing corner of the country.
His awards and distinctions include Fuji ProFoto Sport photography awards in ’93 and ’94, SA Golf Digest Golf Photographer of the Year 2003, SA Golf Digest Contribution to Golf – 2009 and official photographer for the annual Nedbank Golf Challenge (formerly Million Dollar Golf Challenge ) since 1996, the SAA Open Golf Championship, Dimension DataPro-Am , Alfred Dunhill Championship, the Telkom PGA and the Vodacom Tour Championship.
Grant has covered courses in USA, Canada, Thailand, Northern Ireland and South Africa since 1997. Pebble Beach, Cypress Point, Royal County Down and Troon North, are among a host of other top destinations that feature in his portfolio.
Working in various formats (6×12 and 6×17), and now Medium Format Digital, he uses his intricate understanding of natural light to bring a new dimension to golf course photography.
Most, if not South Africa’s entire body of highest-ranked golf courses use his material in promoting their resorts and establishments. Both Gary Player and Jack Nicklaus have used his work in their respective official calendars.
