Here is a set of portraits I shot last week during the annual Boston Baseball Writers Awards dinner at the Seaport Hotel in Boston. Xander Bogaerts, Triston Casas, Rafael Devers, and Michael Chavis all killed it with the fits and posing! I wanted to take advantage of the opportunity to have multiple players together in the same place for the first time since last season ended. With help of the hotel staff and event coordinators, we were able to secure a room to set up a miniature stage for the portraits. We arrived on site a few hours early, and after several rounds of testing and tweaking, were able to get to a point we felt good about.
These portraits are executed with a three light set up, some seamless paper, and a few props to achieve the stylized, colorful look. I’m aiming to use event opportunities like this to shoot more portraits this year, so this was a good test run in working toward that new model. Thanks to our players for their time, to our PR staff for the assist in getting them there, and to our staff photographer Maddie Malhotra for the set up and break down help!
On to the next look.
