They say a picture is worth a thousand words.
But when it comes to Clay Hayner's transformational photography, a thousand words are not enough.
"Clay is so easy-going and patient," said ClubCorp Senior Director of Marketing Services Kristy Morgan. "He just rolls with it. So many photographers have huge egos, but Clay is the opposite and so easy to work with."
Since he was brought on as the company photographer in 2010, Clay has gone about completely redoing and re-branding the company photography, shooting 79 of the company's 154 locations so far.
According to Morgan, the company's photography is unique in that a vast majority of the photo shoots are done with Members, through casting calls held at the Clubs. This gives the photography a much more authentic and real feel.
