Photos: Some Good News, Red Sox Surprise Healthcare Workers.

For the most recent episode of new YouTube show “Some Good News,” actor and Massachusetts native John Krasinski partnered with the Boston Red Sox to deliver the surprise of a life time to healthcare workers in Boston.

Krasinski surprised medical staff of a COVID-19 unit at Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center with a video message from Red Sox legend David Ortiz and four free Red Sox tickets for life.

The staffers then got to ride on a specially commissioned Duck Boat to an empty Fenway Park, where they threw out a ceremonial first pitch, ran the bases, posed for pictures, and received special scoreboard video messages from Red Sox players, Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, and Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker.

The episode of “Some Good News” is embedded above, and a gallery of photos from the special trip to Fenway Park is below. It was a surreal experience to be inside the ballpark to shoot this. Proud of our Red Sox crew for always stepping up to the challenge and delivering the content when it’s needed.

Boston Red Sox Photos: Opening Day Delay Sunrise.

In the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, sports at all levels have been cancelled for the foreseeable future. Among the many events was the Boston Red Sox home Opening Day, scheduled for yesterday against the Chicago White Sox. Every year, Red Sox photography staff is into the ballpark early to shoot the sunrise. It has become a welcome tradition for fans and members of the front office alike. Although yesterday’s game was postponed, I was granted special access to be in the ballpark for an hour early in the morning to keep the sunrise photo tradition going. The weather was not ideal for sunrise, but it was important to get the photo regardless. A big thanks to Fenway Park security for getting me the clearance to do this.

Magazine Cover: Xander Bogaerts And Rafael Devers.

Here’s a new cover image shot for Red Sox Magazine of shortstop Xander Bogaerts and third baseman Rafael Devers. I shot this portrait several weeks ago in the grounds crew warehouse at jetBlue Park in Fort Myers toward the end of Spring Training.

This portrait involved a three light set up – a main light in front with a six foot parabolic umbrella and two rim strobes with gridded strip boxes flanking the players from behind. We put some dirt on the floor to accentuate the gritty look, and topped it off with a few seconds of smoke from a machine. I’m happy with the results! A big thanks to the Fenway South grounds crew for their help in getting the space primed to shoot in, and thanks to Xander and Raffy for their time.
