Photos: Boston Red Sox 2016 Spring Training Begins.

I’ve made it to sunny Fort Myers, Florida, where the Red Sox have officially begun their 2016 Spring Training season. It’s been a busy but great first week shooting team workouts at JetBlue Park. 

Right now, our goal is to stock up on images of as many of the players as we can, while also trying to make artistic, timely imagery that can be used on the team’s social media channels. 

We’re also paying close attention to the various storylines happening each day, the biggest among them the beginning of the final season for Red Sox legend, David Ortiz. 

Lots more to come from Fenway South!

Here are some quick photos from an Major League Baseball media availability appearance in Fort Myers, Florida at the beginning of Spring Training. I was asked by MLB to cover the event. 

Baseball is back in business for the year! More to come from Red Sox Spring Training soon.

Photos: Big Air At Fenway Park.

Who would have thought we would ever have Big Air ski and snowboard jumping out in center field at Fenway Park? I’ve never shot anything like this before, so I had no idea how they were going to pull this off. 

But the event was flawless, and really exciting visually. The obvious goal as a photographer covering an event like this is to show the athletes within the context of the location they’re in – a baseball stadium in downtown Boston. I talk a little bit about that in this very generous write-up on in reference to the daytime Citgo sign photo above. 

It was a very long, very cold week, but I tried to spend as much time on and around the ramp shooting as I possibly could while the skiers and snowboarders were jumping. I figured the more I was out there, the more things I could try. 

A nice opportunity to make some different images to add to the portfolio. Congratulations to everyone involved in making this such a fantastic event. Hard work pays off!

Photos: Big Air At Fenway Ramp Construction.

There is a 140-foot high ski and snowboard ramp in centerfield at Fenway Park. This is insane!

It’s been awesome documenting progress on the Polartec Big Air at Fenway Park ramp over the past few weeks here. It’s fascinating to see the construction crew work on this thing. I don’t know how they do it. 

Visually, it’s proven interesting to shoot, even after shooting pictures literally every day since the build began. By this point, I think I’ve become one with the ramp. I’ve tried to show that construction can be beautiful if you look at it the right way. 

Stay tuned for more pictures once the athletes start jumping off! I can’t wait to shoot. 

Photos: 2016 Beanpot Hockey Championships.

Winter is in full swing here in Boston, and with Boston winter comes great college hockey. Yesterday, I bunkered up at TD Garden during an all-day snow storm to shoot the annual Beanpot Hockey Tournament consolation and championship games for Getty Images.

The consolation game was between Northeastern University and Harvard University, and the championship game between Boston College and Boston University.

I don’t shoot a ton of hockey, but these were two particularly action filled, high energy games. After a 35 minute power outage delay at the Garden, the championship game went to overtime following a dramatic three periods of scoreless hockey. Shortly into overtime, BC’s Alex Tuch hit the game winning goal. 

After two long games hunched over in a pretzel position to shoot through the hole in the glass, I was pretty exhausted, but I enjoyed the battle. Thanks to Getty Images for having me shoot!

Photos: Harvard University vs. Yale University Women’s Hockey.

A rivalry as classic as it gets – Harvard vs. Yale. This time, it was in the form of women’s hockey. I was asked to shoot this year’s installment of the game for the Harvard University Athletics Department. 

This was a well played game by both teams, but Harvard came out on top for the win. 

It was my first time shooting hockey this year, so it took me a bit to get my timing and rhythm down, but felt comfortable as the game progressed. It was a good warm up for the Beanpot Championships I’m shooting today at TD Garden! Winter in Boston is in full swing.

Photos: Red Sox Baseball Operations Clinic.

Here’s a quick set of photos from a nice kids baseball clinic hosted by the Boston Red Sox Baseball Operations department. Special guests included President of Baseball Operations Dave Dombrowski, Manager John Farrell, and former players Jason Varitek and Pedro Martinez. 

A nice opportunity to do good in the community!
