Boston Red Sox Photos: 2020 Winter Weekend.

Back on the Winter Weekend grind! The Boston Red Sox hosted the sixth annual Baseball Winter Weekend, although at a new home at MGM Casino in Springfield, Massachusetts. The event included a Town Hall Meeting with Red Sox players and leadership, autographs and photo opportunities with Red Sox players, and round-table discussions on a variety of baseball topics. We also tagged along with the players for an exclusive event at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. 

The new venue presented challenges for us in terms of accessibility and fluidity, but we made the best of what we could, and still have some nice moments from the weekend in photos. Here’s a gallery of some favorite behind the scenes images. 

A job well-done by all members of the Boston Red Sox front office who came together to make it happen!

Boston Red Sox Photos: Portraits At Boston Baseball Writers Dinner.

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.

A few quick frames here from the 2019 Major League Baseball Winter Meetings in San Diego. I was out there for the annual team photographer conferences, but got to catch up with a few of our guys. 

Photos: 2019 Pedro Martinez Foundation Gala.

Here’s a look at the 2019 Pedro Martinez Foundation Gala at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Boston this weekend. I was brought on by the Foundation to shoot the event. 

It was fun to document some behind the scenes moments with Pedro, David Ortiz, Vladimir Guerrero Jr., Corey Kluber, Jose Bautista, Jason Varitek, Willy Adames, Jose Reyes, and others.

The Boston Red Sox today announced that Chaim Bloom has been hired as Chief Baseball Officer. In this role, Bloom will be responsible for all baseball operations matters. 

Bloom, 36, spent the last 15 years in the Tampa Bay Rays baseball operations department, including the last three as Senior Vice President, Baseball Operations.

Above is a gallery of images from today’s introductory press conference with Chaim and other Red Sox front office members.

Welcome to Boston, Chaim!

Boston Red Sox Photos: Sunday, September 29, 2019 Vs. Baltimore Orioles.

Another season in the books, folks, and what a way to end it! The Sox won in dramatic walk-off fashion as Mookie Betts roared toward home plate to score the game winning run on a ninth inning hit by Rafael Devers. It’s nice that we were able to end on a high.

It wasn’t the season we had all hoped for on the field after last year’s success, but still a great year to be a part of for many reasons. I feel lucky to witness neat things and be a part of some unforgettable experiences every year, even on the down years. We have a great group of players to work with, and an incredibly talented staff of creatives that bring this team and ballpark to life every day. 

That’s the end of my eighth season with the Boston Red Sox, and my tenth in Major League Baseball. I’ll have a more thorough recap of the season in my yearly review towards the end of December. For now, I’m excited for a bit of REST.

More work overhead today with the robots! All of these images were shot via a robotic camera controlled by a Surface Pro tablet. Amazing to see the versatility of the robots and the angles they provide. I hope to be able to bring these permanently to Fenway next year and expand upon this!

Boston Red Sox Photos: Friday, September 27, 2019 Vs. Baltimore Orioles.

Here is a take from our last night game of the 2019 season. It feels weird to not be in playoff contention for the first time in awhile, but I’m looking forward to the much needed break! This weekend, we have some robotic cameras installed on various points within Fenway Park, so it’s been a blast playing with the different angles they provide from above. 

2019 Boston Red Sox Top Shots: Homestand 12.

Here is a montage of the top photos, timelapses, video clips and parallax images from the Boston Red sox photography staff over the twelfth home stand of the 2019 season. The video clips were shot by both Red Sox Productions and NESN.

Boston Red Sox Photos: Thursday, September 19, 2019 Vs. San Francisco Giants.

We are winding down our 2019 season. With only four home games left, I decided to get a good solid roam in today rather than camp out in the pit. Luckily, we had a beautiful September Boston day and a win to end this mini 3-game home stand. It’s been tough to push creatively knowing that our team isn’t in contention, but today felt like a good refresh.
