Photos: Zac Brown Band Performs At Fenway Park.

Here is a gallery of images from three nights of performances by the Zac Brown Band. I was asked to provide coverage of all three shows for Major League Baseball. 

What a treat. The energy inside the stadium was amazing all three nights, particularly when singer Steven Tyler of Aerosmith made a surprise appearance during the last show. Thanks to the help of some great coworkers, I was able to get right up to the stage to photograph him and Zac Brown sing ‘Walk This Way’ and ‘Sweet Emotion’ together. That’s an experience I won’t forget for quite some time. 

Thank you to the folks at Major League Baseball for letting me shoot! Enjoy the photos.

Fenway Park.

I took a tour of Fenway Park during my visit to Boston this weekend.

The only thing I could think about during the entire tour was how much I wished I worked as a photographer there. Covering the last place Baltimore Orioles day in and day out last year was incredibly exciting. I can’t imagine working in a ballpark that’s nearly 100 years old in a city that goes crazy over their baseball team.

So, instead of listening to most of what our tour guide told us, I took photographs and promised myself that I’ll get there one way or another.

Aerosmith had just played to a sold out Fenway audience the night before, so the grounds crew was working to get the field back into baseball shape. The bustle on the field caught my eye more than The Green Monster, Pesky’s Pole, and the other historic, recognizable parts of the stadium.

I noticed that these two shots are strikingly similar and work well as a pair.
