Here is a selection of my photos from last night’s Football at Fenway match between Liverpool FC and AS Roma. Roma edged out a 1-0 victory over crowd favorite Liverpool, and although there wasn’t much action during the game, the atmosphere around the park was still very high energy. 

It was nice to get a look at something different here.

For the first time since 2012, football is back at Fenway Park, as we gear up for Football at Fenway 2014. Liverpool FC will take on AS Roma in a rematch of the friendly match in 2012. Yesterday, the Liverpool squad met with media and took the baseball field turned soccer pitch for a practice session. 

The game is tonight, so I’ll be sure to post photos from there tomorrow! It’s hard to believe it’s already been two years since I shot this last.

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!

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 and here are two galleries with some more scenes from the day.

These are the highlights from those two matches, as well as a few other scenes from throughout the day. 

Here, here, and here are galleries with more of my photos. Men’s semi-finals are today!

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.
