I always get these painful headaches after being in the sun for a long time or by the sun hitting my head for 10-15 minutes. Pain lasts the whole day.

In brief: Migraine

All headaches are provoked by triggers, and not unusual for migraines to be set off by bright sunshine, amongst many potential triggers.
You might find some benefit from sunglasses or a visor, but perhaps a preventative prescription medicine or otc product might be even more successful.
