This Boston Red Sox honored former second baseman Dustin Pedroia during pregame ceremonies at Fenway Park before a game against the New York Yankees. Pedroia, who played in 1,512 games with the club from 2006–19, announced his retirement from the Red Sox and the game of baseball on February 1, 2021.
During the ceremony, Pedroia was met by former teammates Tim Wakefield, Mike Lowell, and Jacoby Ellsbury, as well as Pedro Martinez, Luis Tiant, and various community partners. At the ceremony’s conclusion, retired professional wrestler Ric Flair surprised Pedroia and announced “Play Ball” alongside him and his sons Dylan, Brooks and Cole.
The Sox beat the Yankees 5–3, and once the field cleared and the Fenway lights dimmed, Pedroia took the field for one last portrait at second base.
Excited to share some recent video work in collaboration with Major League Baseball for an episode of ‘Big League Lockers’ with Boston Red Sox designated hitter, J.D. Martinez. This fun video was originally published on the MLB YouTube channel, and has since collected over one million views. I helped to produce the spot alongside our content team, who worked remotely with the league to shoot the footage while restrictions from Covid-19 prevented outside crews on site. I also operated camera B, which shows cutaway views of the items J.D. describes.
Here is a set of new portrait work shot for Boston College for their 2021 football team media day. These two looks were shot simultaneously on two separate lighting setups with six lights used in total. The clean white look offers a simple portrait that can stand alone or be used for graphic cutouts, and the black setup with original field turf flooring provides a secondary creative option.
A big thanks to BC athletics for having me shoot these.
Here is a gallery of recent higher education work of Dr. E LaBrent Chrite, newly appointed as the ninth president of Bentley University. Bentley’s marketing department brought me on board to document President Chrite’s first day on campus and visits with students, as well as a few quick and simple portraits.
Here is a gallery of images shot for a recent story on former New England Patriots wide receiver, Chris Hogan. Hogan, who spent nearly ten years in the NFL and won two Super Bowls, is now a member of the Cannons Lacrosse Club in the Premier Lacrosse League.
These visuals accompanied a written story in both the print and digital Sunday editions of The New York Times. Here is a link to the full story online, written by reporter Marisa Ingemi. A big thanks to the picture desk at the Times for having me shoot the story.
