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.
I got back to Boston from New Haven yesterday morning and went straight to the park to shoot the last game of an eleven game home stand for the Red Sox. The travel coupled with a Sox loss made for a long day, but here are a few quick ones.
Here are the last images of an exciting week of tennis at the Connecticut Open at Yale University. Petra Kvitova continued her domination in New Haven, winning her second title in three finals appearances here.
It’s always interesting to think about these tournaments after they’re complete. Each one has it’s own personality, quirks, and characters, and they’re all so different from each other. This one has a small tournament feel but with the star power and excitement of a bigger tournament, which I think is quite a nice balance.
From a photo standpoint, it was essentially nonstop shooting for me over the last nine days. By now, I’ve learned that as the official tournament photographer, success is just as much about time management and good planning each day as it is about taking good pictures. It’s a responsibility that can be hectic at times, but one that I enjoy immensely.
As usual, the experience is only as good as the people you work with, and I’m grateful to have such great people to partner with. Our web and digital team of Matt Van Tuinen, Stephen Villatoro, Nick McCarvel, Lauren Foley, and Craig Gabriel is among the best in the business. I’m also thankful to tournament director Anne Worcester and the rest of the tournament staff for their efforts and for giving me the opportunity to shoot.
Now I’m back in Boston to finish out the 2014 Red Sox season. It goes on!
We’re winding down here in New Haven. Here are a few selects from yesterday’s semi-finals action. Last day today!
Here’s a selection of photos from yesterday’s tennis action, as well as the Connecticut Open Legend’s Event with former stars Andy Roddick and James Blake.
