A bit late on these, but here are a few photos from the last of the Red Sox three game series against the Orioles last week. I took out the 600mm lens again for this game, so it was interesting to be forced to shoot everything really tight. It’s certainly a challenge and makes you think differently about framing and composition.

Here are a few outtakes.

There was a lot going on here at Fenway Park last night before the second of a three game series between the Boston Red Sox and the Baltimore Orioles. 

As August nears an end, so does Jimmy Fund month sponsored by the Red Sox. Along with WEEI Radio and the New England Sports Network (NESN), the Red Sox raised over $3 million dollars for cancer research in just two days via the Jimmy Fund Radio-Telethon. As is routine, some of the Red Sox player wives got on the phones yesterday to make calls and accept donations. 

In addition, the team honored Sean Collier, the MIT Police Officer killed during the attacks of the Boston Marathon, by inviting members of his family to throw out the ceremonial first pitch. Collier was a regular donor to the Jimmy Fund. 

These are a mix of photos from those two events.

It’s good to be back at Fenway after a few weeks off, particularly during a big series between the Red Sox and the Orioles. I tried to mix it up last night, so I shot from the center field camera well with the 600mm lens that we have here temporarily. I didn’t get much in the way of crazy action, but it’s still refreshing to have a different look.

There are also a few Jimmy Fund photos posted here, as there are lots of ceremonies and recognitions in honor of Jimmy Fund Month at Fenway Park.

I’m back in Boston after spending the past ten days in New Haven, Connecticut, where I worked as the tournament photographer and videographer for the New Haven Open tennis tournament. Although this is a significantly smaller tournament relative to others I’ve worked in the past, the amount of work to be done, photos to be taken, and video content to be produced was no less than ever, so I’m just now finding the time to catch up on posting that work here. 

Finals day is always crazy, but also always makes for great photo opportunities, and I was pleased to get some nice reaction images as Simona Halep stunned Petra Kvitova to win the singles championship and Sania Mirza and Jie Zheng took the doubles title. 

Although the New Haven Open is a women’s only tournament, and the draw is smaller than some others on tour, there’s still tons of activity off the court that needed to be covered. My work often calls for shifting styles and working somewhere in the middle of journalism, marketing, and public relations, respectively, and this was no exception. Although I was on court shooting editorial photos of forehands, backhands, and serves, I was also shooting corporate events, tennis clinics, and sponsorship signage around the grounds, all aimed toward use for future marketing material. In that regard, these ten days served as a good experience for me in shooting for those different purposes simultaneously.

As usual, it was a nice opportunity to re-connect with old colleagues and friends, and to make new connections as well. It’s a pleasure to work alongside so many talented individuals, and I’m very lucky to do so on a daily basis, both in tennis and in baseball. I of course owe huge thanks to the team I was chosen to be a part of. Matt Van Tuinen and Jeff Watson of MVTPR and all-around media whiz Nick McCarvel do some seriously impressive work. It was also a great pleasure to work alongside Elsa Garrison, our old Boston Getty Images photo colleague turned New York staffer, out on court and at events throughout the week. 

Although I won’t be able to shoot the US Open this year as I’ve done for the past two years, I’ll be keeping busy in Boston for the next couple of months, as the Red Sox are in the heat of a playoff chase that should come to an exciting ending. 

Thanks for reading!
