I don’t have much time to write for this post, but it’s been an amazing, incredibly busy, memorable first week here at Wimbledon. Here’s a look at the action I saw around the grounds on Day Six.

Tomorrow is middle Sunday, which means the tennis takes a rest and so do I. Back for another week on Monday!

We had another crazy day at Wimbledon today. Despite rain delays that stopped play for big chunks of time, there was still plenty to shoot and do to keep the visual end of wimbledon.com running smoothly.

I also shot and edited some rain delay video for the website, which I’ll be posting at the end of the tournament.

That’s all from day five.

Rain held up lots of play late this afternoon, so we had a relatively slow fourth day of the tournament. There wasn’t much tennis shooting to be done, so here’s an assortment of photos I snapped. 

Until tomorrow!

It was a bit of a strange day here in SW19. At the moment, I can think of at least eight players from both the men’s and women’s side of the main draw retired or withdrew from the tournament due to injuries. Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, and Maria Sharapova are among several out by the second round. It’s certainly something I’ve never seen before.

But despite all the weirdness on court, the tournament goes on and there’s still plenty to shoot off court. Since there was some downtime during matches today, I tried to document the moments happening outside of tennis.

Thanks for looking, and goodbye until tomorrow!

Things really picked up here on Day Two of the Championships. Matches aside, there were what seemed like endless events, appearances, and happenings around the grounds.

Here are my favorites from the day. By now, I’ve shot several major tennis tournaments, but there are days when I still need to pinch myself. It’s a bit surreal being so close to so many well known people.

Until tomorrow!

Hard to believe, but we’re underway here at Wimbledon. The gates at the All England Lawn & Tennis Club opened up today for Day One of the 2013 Championships. 

The first few days of the Slams are always pretty hectic, so I’m going to keep this post short for now. It’s great to be out here. 

Enjoy the photos!

Greetings from London! I’m lucky enough to be here for the next two weeks working as a photographer and videographer at the 2013 Championships Wimbledon. It’s great to be back here after shooting this tournament last year for the first time. I’m still a bit jet lagged, but it strangely feels like I never left.

The Championships don’t start until Monday, so today and tomorrow, I’m on the hunt for features and players getting themselves ready for play. I just so happened to run into the two biggest guys, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, out on the courts today. Here is the full gallery of my photos from the day. 

I’m really looking forward to seeing all the work produced our incredibly talented crew at wimbledon.com over the next two weeks. Stay tuned for more posts throughout the tournament, hopefully every day!

One day, there are pictures everywhere you look. The next, you can’t get a picture anywhere. That’s how baseball is, and last night’s game was slow – really slow. Aside from the play at the plate photo above, nothing really happened. I think all of Boston’s energy was focused on the Bruins, who were playing just down the road at the Garden playing in Game 4 of the Stanley Cup Finals. 

Although the Sox lost and there weren’t many pictures, it was still neat to be working at a sold out baseball game while the same city’s hockey team was playing at the same time across town. Only in Boston. 

That’s it for baseball for me for awhile, as I’m traveling abroad for some exciting work. More to come soon!

We’ve been really lucky this year. It seems like the late game, dramatic walk-off win has become somewhat of a regular occurrence with this current group of Red Sox players. 

On Tuesday night, at the end of the second game of a day-night double header, we got another one. After the Tampa Bay Rays tied the game up on an eighth inning home run, Red Sox outfielder Daniel Nava drew a walk in the bottom of the ninth. Moments later, outfielder Jonny Gomes came up to bat and crushed a two-run home run over the Green Monster. 

It was a great celebration from Gomes, who punted his helmet as he ran down the third base line. 

Let’s hope the exciting baseball continues!

For me, Sunday was more about what happened before the game than the game itself, which I was okay with after shooting two really long games the day before.

The graduating class of Red Sox Scholars were on hand to be recognized during a ceremony before the game, which proves to be a busy day for everyone involved every year. Our photo crew was in early in the morning to shoot head shots of all the graduates and inductees across the street at Fenway High School. After shooting those, we broke down our lights and were quickly back over to the stadium to shoot group photos in front of the scoreboard followed by the pre-game ceremony itself. 

A busy end to a long weekend. Here are the highlights from the day.
