I’m here in New Haven, Connecticut for the next ten days working as the tournament photographer and video producer at the 2013 New Haven Open tennis tournament. Today marked the first day of the tournament, so I was busy shooting tons of tennis and opening events. By now, I’ve learned that on these early days of the tournament, it’s less about being too creative with photo and video and more about making sure that everything gets covered, as there’s so much going on.

Above is a quick hit video piece I shot and edited from the tournament draw ceremony featuring 2013 Wimbledon finalist, Sabine Lisicki. As the tournament goes on, I’ll have more time to polish these video spots. For now, it was a good way to get back into the swing of things after shooting lots of baseball over the past several weeks. 

There’s also a few selects from the stills I shot today. 

As I often make my practice, I’m hoping to publish a post every day of the tournament, so be sure to check back if you’d like!
