Boston Red Sox Photos: 2018 Opening Day Vs. Tampa Bay Rays.

We’re underway again at Fenway Park! This week’s Opening Day was my seventh with the Red Sox, and ninth in Major League Baseball. I’m getting old.

As Opening Days go, this was a good one. The Red Sox came from behind to beat the Tampa Bay Rays on a walk-off hit by Hanley Ramirez in the twelfth inning.

Before the game, the team welcomed Winter Olympians and Paralympians from the New England region in a moving pre-game ceremony, which included a special appearance by David Ortiz.

Here are the photos from the game.

Boston Red Sox Photos: Hat Distribution To Boston Public Schools.

As part of the club’s “Calling All Kids” effort to connect baseball to the next generation of fans, the Red Sox and JetBlue today distributed over 45,000 Red Sox baseball hats to Boston Public Schools students and staff in 104 schools throughout the City of Boston.

The hat distribution was launched earlier today when former Red Sox Designated Hitter David Ortiz, Red Sox President and CEO Sam Kennedy, Red Sox Foundation Board Member Linda Henry, JetBlue Regional Marketing Manager Ronda McLeod, and Boston Public Schools Superintendent Tommy Chang joined Boston Mayor Martin J. Walsh at the Hurley K-8 School in the South End. The group handed out hats to students and teachers, surprised kids with a visit from Ortiz, and gave the children a chance to take photos with Wally the Green Monster and his sister Tessie.

Here are some photos from a great event!

Boston Red Sox Photos: Opening Day vs. Tampa Bay Rays.

I’m en route back to Boston from Tampa, so I wanted to get these photos from yesterday’s Opening Day out before things get too crazy. It was a wild game yesterday that didn’t go the Red Sox way, but it was fun to shoot nonetheless. 

Boston Red Sox Photos: Opening Day Workouts.

The Red Sox have arrived in St. Petersburg, where they took batting practice and infield drills ahead of tomorrow’s Opening Day game against the Tampa Bay Rays.

I’m back down in Florida to cover the game, so shot some frames at the Trop today.

Video & Photos: Laver Cup Promo – Chicago, Illinois.

I’m recently back from Chicago, Illinois (my first time in the city, why did I wait so long?) after shooting a promotional event for the Laver Cup, a newly created professional tennis international competition created last year. After the cup’s initial kickoff in Prague last year, the second installment of the event will take place this coming September in the Windy City.

This was a whirlwind! Our content crew had about for hours to document World No. 1 tennis player Roger Federer, World No. 2 Nick Kyrgios, and tennis hall of famers John McEnroe and Rod Laver as they squeezed in stops at Chicago’s Navy Pier, Lou Malnati’s famous Chicago Pizza, the Chicago Bean, the the Chicago Bulls locker room at the United Center to meet Scottie Pippen, and the Chicago Theatre to visit European soccer star Bastian Schweinsteiger. Throw in a press conference at the Chicago Athletic Association Hotel with NBC Sports Host Mike Tirico and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel, and you have yourself a full day.

Here is the video piece, which is a great collaborative effort by the staffs at MVT PR, Tried & True TV, 309 Productions, and the Laver Cup. A huge thanks to Drew Carlisle for having me on board to work with the über talented production crew of Lauren Foley, Ian Davidson, Joe Miller, Dustin Berta, and Mark Riedy. And a big shoutout to our producers Kellie Morgan and Prue Ryan for making it all come together!

I’ve also included some still frames I was able to fire off in between shooting video clips. 

ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS: Chelsea & Matt – Naples, Florida.

Here is a gallery from a recent engagement shoot with Chelsea and Matt in Naples, Florida. We found a great little spot to shoot called Seagate Beach, which gave us both natural and beach looks to work with. 

Thanks guys for having me shoot these!

Boston Red Sox Photos: Workouts At JetBlue Park.

As the team heads to Sarasota for a game, Red Sox workouts for those not traveling continued today at jetBlue Park. Here are some images from the workouts, which included a simulated game pitched by Chris Sale.

Portraits: Boston Red Sox At Casino Night.

Last night, members of the Boston Red Sox attended the annual Casino Night at jetBlue Park, a fundraiser that benefits the Red Sox Foundation. It’s not often that you get the entire team together, so we tried to capitalize on the opportunity and set up some stylized portraits of the players and coaches dressed out of uniform. We went for a vintage look with our backdrop and floor, as well as a few props here and there.

Here is a gallery of the results.
