I spent my Saturday this weekend out in Chestnut Hill at Boston College to shoot a game between the Eagles and the Florida State Seminoles. 

I was able to finish the corporate/sponsorship signage work that I was hired to shoot by the end of the first half, so I stuck around to shoot game action for myself during the second half. I haven’t shot a football game in awhile, so it was a nice change of pace during a break from baseball.

These are a few that I liked. Looking through these images again, I’m realizing I shot mostly FSU action. That’s just how the game was going by the time I started shooting in the second half. Enjoy!

Two years ago in September, I was in the first base photo bit at Camden Yards in Baltimore, shooting photos as the Orioles beat the Boston Red Sox in dramatic fashion and ultimately eliminating them from the playoffs. Here are those pictures, and what I wrote about that memorable and historic night. 

It’s funny how things come full circle. After a last place finish last year in Boston, the Red Sox beat the Toronto Blue Jays last Friday night to clinch a first place finish in an extremely competitive American League East Division, and to secure their spot into the 2013 postseason. 

I was incredibly excited to shoot this game, and at the prospect of shooting these celebration photos. This is easily the most memorable experience I’ve had in my four seasons shooting baseball. For me, there’s no bigger an adrenaline rush than being a witness to these moments of peak emotion and jubilation in sports. As a photographer and as a baseball fan, it doesn’t get any better.

These are a selection of photos I shot, both right after the last out of the game was recorded and as the team celebrated on the field after the game. The first one, of pitcher Koji Uehara and catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia celebrating as the team runs out behind them, has quickly become one of the favorite photos I’ve shot. 

I can’t wait to be on hand to shoot October playoff baseball in Boston! Here’s hoping for a World Series championship.

Last night was Dollar Beard Night at Fenway Park, a promotion created after several Red Sox players have grown their beards out as we’ve come down the regular season stretch. The concept was pretty simple: Show up to the park with a beard, or fake beard, and receive a ticket to that night’s game for one dollar.

Before gates opened, myself and a few of the other Sox photographers went out to shoot portraits of the bearded guests waiting in line for their tickets.

These are a few that I shot and liked the best. Some of the beards are real. Others are fake. All were good enough for a dollar ticket, though.

The Orioles are in town for a critical three-game series against the Sox. Baltimore finds themselves in the middle of a tight race for a wild-card spot in the postseason, while Boston entered the series with a magic number of 4 games to win the American League East division.

The O’s were able to sneak out a win last night, powered by a home run by the other main storyline of this series, first baseman Chris Davis. In the sixth inning, he hit his league-leading 51st home run, which broke the Baltimore Orioles all-time franchise record previously held by Brady Anderson, who hit 50 in 1996.

As a baseball fan who grew up in Baltimore watching Brady Anderson and the rest of those 90’s Orioles teams, it was neat to be on hand to shoot the record being broken. And, given my two previous seasons shooting for Baltimore, I was able to pass those photos along for Orioles marketing and social media

That being said, I’m no mole, and for the record I’m still rooting (and shooting) for the Sox come playoff time.

This is a follow up to the Flag Roll video I made in the wake of the attacks on the Boston Marathon earlier this year, in which I spoke with some first responders who were out at the scene on Marathon Monday. You can watch that video by clicking here

I’ve covered this process twice now, and both times have been enjoyable to shoot. It’s really a nice coming together of people, and it’s a story that looks good both in video and photos. 

The Sox are back in town today to begin their quest to clinch a playoff spot. First up is a three game series against the Yankees. I’m excited to shoot meaningful September baseball. The Sox’ magic number stands at 8!

Last night turned out to be a historic, action-packed, and downright fun game to shoot. Seemingly out of nowhere, the Red Sox offense exploded, putting up 20 runs on 19 hits, including a franchise record-tying eight home runs. 

David Ortiz put up a huge performance of his own, hitting two home runs as well as a double in the sixth inning, which marked the 2,000th hit of his Major League Career. 

I’ve shot lots of crazy games in the past, but I can’t remember one where home runs, plays in the field, and player reactions were happening so quickly and consistently. It’s a good exercise in keeping your focus while shooting as several story lines are happening at once. 

What a great way to end this home stand. We’ve got one more home stand to go, but hopefully more baseball to come here in Boston as October rolls around!

Last night was the second of a three game series between two of baseball’s best, the Red Sox and the Tigers. This was slated as a pitcher’s duel between Jon Lester and league leader in wins, Max Scherzer. With that in mind, I wasn’t expecting much action to shoot, and that’s exactly how things went. 

Instead, this game’s pictures were more about emotion and reaction than plays on the field, which there was quite a bit of. 

Perhaps this is a preview for things to come in the playoffs.
