Good morning from Palm Springs, California, where I’m here for the next three weeks shooting photo and video for the tournament website and social media outlets at the BNP Paribas Open tennis tournament. I’m really happy to come back here after a great few weeks at this tournament last year.

I’m out here a few days early to cover events related to the grand opening of a brand new Stadium 2, seen above, as well as some incredibly impressive expansions to the grounds at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden, which we’ll be documenting more as the tournament goes on.

Last night, I shot the opening draw ceremony to the McEnroe Challenge for Charity, an exhibition match with former tennis legends who will play to raise money for four different charities.

It’s great to be back into tennis season! Lots more to come over the next several weeks.
