Here is a review of the multimedia, video, and photo work myself and others on the Boston Red Sox photography staff have created throughout the final two months of the 2014 season.
Just about all of them are fifteen seconds long, a perfect format for the Red Sox Instagram account where they were all published.
They’re all edited and produced on tight deadlines so that fans and viewers can experience them in real-time. Lots more to come this season! As always, I welcome your thoughts, questions, comments, criticisms, etc.!
After much fanfare and anticipation, Derek Jeter brought his historic Major League career to a close yesterday, playing his final game as a member of the New York Yankees against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park. I’ve been lucky to witness some pretty special moments and ceremonies here in Boston, and this certainly ranks right up there with all of them.
Jeter is one of those figures in sports that are larger than life, alongside the Roger Federers, Tiger Woods, and Michael Jordans of the world. If not always statistically, than with presence and aura alone. I’ll never forget the moment I saw Jeter up close in the dugout for the first time as an intern for the Baltimore Orioles back in 2009, and what’s more, ever since I began watching baseball as a boy, Derek Jeter has been there. What he’s done is truly impressive.
Here are a selection of images from his final weekend.
And just like that, the 2014 regular season is over, bringing to a close my fifth complete season working in Major League Baseball. It’s funny how things can change so quickly. Last year we won the World Series. This year we finished last in the American League East division by 25 games. Needless to say, things were a bit different around here.
But every season is memorable, and there were some great moments and events this year at the park. As a staff, we were able to get some incredible images, and we’re continuing to push the world of multimedia and video to places it hasn’t been before.
After a World Series run followed by all the proceeding festivities followed by another busy season, it’s almost time for a break. Almost! Until then, I’ve got more to come from a place they call “Birdland.”
I had the distinct pleasure of trailing Commissioner of Major League Baseball, Bud Selig, as he visited Fenway Park today as the last stop on his farewell tour to ballparks throughout the country. Selig will retire at the conclusion of this season.
What began as a very informative and enjoyable question and answer session with the Boston Red Sox front office turned into a series of stops around the park, highlighted by individual meetings with David Ortiz and Derek Jeter just one day before his last career game.
These are really special moments, and as a baseball fan, I feel lucky to have been able to document them.
I’m looking forward to closing out the 2014 regular season with Derek Jeter’s last career game tomorrow!
These are a few images from a tough loss last night for the Red Sox against Tampa. It’s hard to believe we’re already into our final homestand of the season.
Here are a few images from a nice visit today by Red Sox pitcher Craig Breslow and his wife Kelly to Mass General Hospital.
Here are some selects from a Red Sox loss to the Blue Jays on a beautiful afternoon at Fenway Park. It’s hard to believe the season is winding down. Time flies!
We’re very lucky at Fenway Park to host several high profile concerts every year. I was sad to have missed the Zac Brown Band and Billy Joel concerts here earlier this summer, but got the chance to shoot Steve Winwood and Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers last week.
I’m a Tom Petty fan, and I saw this exact same show several years ago with friends, but working and having front row access this time around made the experience much more exhilarating. Being just a few feet away from Tom Petty as he sung ‘Mary Jane’s Last Dance’ is a moment I’ll never forget.
Here are my favorite photos from the two performances, as well as a few atmospheric shots of the park.
