John & Jeannine Henebry were the principle photographers on the book project in coordination with the author Darius Oliver and published by Harry Abrams.
“John and Jeannine Henebry were the principal photographers for my new publication Planet Golf USA. I sought their services because I was impressed with their photographic skills, but ended the project more amazed at the effort they put into helping me achieve my goals, and the lengths they went to in order to capture the true character of America’s great golf courses. I have no hesitation recommending them on both their worth ethic and the quality of their output – any success I have with Planet Golf USA will be in large part due to the complete commitment they made to my project. I remain indebted to both John and Jeannine for their efforts.” Darius Oliver
When Shadow Creek first opened, John and Jeannine photographed the Tom Fazio designed course for the first edition of the Shadow Creek book. Now over 20 years later, a new version of the book has been released. Working on the first book was a highlight of their career and John and Jeannine were honored to once again be invited to photograph this spectacular course. Produced by MGM Resorts International, this elegant, 115 page coffee table book is a photographic study of the course built in the desert of North Las Vegas, Nevada. The book consists of 90 photographs and quotes from celebrities and sports figures who have frequently played rounds on the course.
Here’s a sampling of the images and corresponding quotes:
