The UofR Med­ical Cen­ter held the annu­al Golf Glas­sic with Pro Jeff Sluman there to vis­it and work with the golfers.

Now, often these ‘Famous Peo­ple’ Meet & Greets I’m hired to shoot, usu­al­ly go like this:
Cat­tle-line of folks wait­ing to meet ‘Mr. Famous’, They shake hands and I take a pho­to, the donor gets to say ‘I real­ly like your work’ and then on to the next per­son.

Now hey, I don’t want to bust on any­body… just rave about how it went at the URMC.

For any­one that showed up ear­ly, Jeff did a clin­ic, told sto­ries along with Oak Hill pro Craig Har­mon.

Then Jeff was at one (very chal­leng­ing) hole and he’d chat with folks while wait­ing for the four­some ahead to get off the green, we’d snap a quick shot of the four­some with Jeff and he’d hit a ball with the group… pret­ty cool see­ing a pro at work up that close, and…if you could hit it clos­er to the pin, you got a gift cer­tifi­cate from the pro shop.

Anoth­er cool touch, my UofR con­tact Tom and Jeff worked out that Jeff signed the balls, and no mat­ter if you won against Jeff…the golfer who was clos­est to the pin on that hole got to keep Jef­f’s signed ball.

So, kudos to URM­C’s devel­op­ment folks and Jeff, who’s got the per­son­al­i­ty (and fun­ny sto­ries) to make it all hap­pen!
