Recently, I was hired to shoot environmental portraits of all twelve employees at RMI Golf Carts in Olathe, Kansas for their website and marketing materials. The challenge was that I had two hours to complete the assignment which equals one portrait every ten minutes. Six portraits per hour doesn’t sound like a lot of work but considering I had to scout a location for each shot, find some props, move equipment, adjust lighting, and take the photo, I didn’t have much room for error.

RMI is a family-owned business that sells or rents new and used golf carts as well as utility vehicles. They are the only factory authorized Yamaha, E-Z-GO, and Bad Boy Buggies dealer for the Kansas City metro. RMI also has one of the largest show rooms, parts and service departments.

I was surprised to learn that most golf carts are not used on golf courses. Many of the carts and utility vehicles are purchased by apartment complexes, resort communities, shopping districts, universities, and private owners, to haul people or materials around their properties.

All twelve portraits can be seen on RMI’s website: www.rmigolfcarts.com/staff.asp
