That’s a sweep for the Red Sox to start the second half of the season! Here are a few images from the third game of the series.
We’re back at it at Fenway Park, and into the second half of the 2014 baseball season. The Sox are off to a good start, having won the first two games they’ve played. Here are some grabs from a good one last night. It was slow, but we got some good emotion to shoot toward the end of the game.
Last game of the series is today!
This morning, the Red Sox Foundation hosted the fifth annual Run to Home Base presented by New Balance 10k race, which brought over 2,600 runners and walkers to Fenway Park to support Iraq and Afghanistan veterans and their families as they heal from post traumatic stress and traumatic brain injury.
This was an early morning for me, but I always enjoy shooting this event. These are a few features from the day.
Here are a few images from a CVS Hitting Clinic at Fenway Park this afternoon. Each year, the Boston Red Sox and CVS Caremark partner on the CVS Caremark All Kids Can Baseball Camp, which gives children with physical and/or developmental disabilities the opportunity to play baseball on the field at Fenway.
Today, participants from the Boys & Girls Club of Boston took batting practice with Red Sox hitting coach, Victor Rodriguez.
It’s nice to be back at it at Fenway Park after a few weeks of shooting out of the country, and it was even nicer to be welcomed back with an exciting walk-off win to shoot. After giving up a two run lead in the ninth inning, the Sox bounced right back and got it done in the tenth, giving them their second straight walk-off, third this home stand, and eighth this season.
Let’s hope we can keep it going!
It’s past midnight here, and I’m just finishing my edits before I fly back home just a few hours from now. I’m absolutely wiped, but I was lucky enough to be in the photo pits on Centre Court to shoot today’s epic five set men’s final between Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic. Here are some of the highlights from the match. Here is a gallery with several others.
I’m too tired to post a longer reflection on the tournament overall as I usually do, but simply put, it was one big incredible, valuable, educational, stressful at times, rewarding experience that I’m very grateful to have had.
Goodbye and thank you Wimbledon 2014!
Back to Boston!
Things are getting exciting around here at the grounds of the All England Club, as we’ve reached finals weekend. Today, I was tasked with shooting practice sessions for all four singles finalists in the morning. Above are a few scenes from those practices.
I was also assigned to get down to Centre Court for the trophy presentations following the championship match between Eugenie Bouchard and Petra Kvitova. With a bit of luck, I was able to get on court for match point, and happened to be positioned with a clean view of Kvitova’s reaction. These are my favorites from the end of the match. It’s always a thrill to witness special moments like these.
Here are a few scenes from day eleven at Wimbledon, and here is a gallery with some more of my images.
We’re down to the final two players on the women’s side, as Petra Kvitova and Eugenie Bouchard have advanced to the finals of this year’s Wimbledon. I was lucky enough to be on Centre Court to shoot both semi-final matches yesterday. It really is a beautiful court, and I loved every minute of being out there.
These are the highlights from those two matches, as well as a few other scenes from throughout the day.
Last year’s Wimbledon champion and home town hero Andy Murray is out of the tournament, as he lost in straight sets this afternoon to Grigor Dimitrov.
These are just a few scenes from the aftermath. My job was to follow him around as best as I could as he left the grounds of the All England Club.
Not a lot of tennis action for me on day eight of the tournament. My assignment was to focus on several different needs on the shot list required for the All England Club. It was fun to mix things up a bit after having shot so much tennis over the past eight days.
Here is a gallery with a few more of my photos.
We’ve reached the end of the first week of Wimbledon 2014, so here is a selection from yesterday. A long morning of rain delays made for lots of down time, so I spent most of it hunting for rain features. These are a few of my favorite rain pictures, as well as some action photos and scenes from the queue camping grounds, where camp out for days on end in hopes of getting tickets into the grounds.
Here and here are galleries with more of my pictures, and here is our “Photographer’s Choice: Best of Week One” gallery, which features the best of the best from a team of incredibly talented photographers and editors.
I had a lot of fun through week one. On to week two!
Another long one. Here are some selects from the day, and here is a gallery with some others.
