Photos: Babson College Magazine Basketball Story.

Above is a recent editorial assignment I shot for Babson College Magazine. The story profiles Sam Bohmiller, a student athlete on Babson’s men’s basketball team. I followed Sam during his pre-game routine and the team throughout the game. Above are some selects from the shoot, as well as the tear sheets of the story in the print edition of the magazine.

Thanks again to Babson for having me on board!

Above is some recent portraiture and editorial work shot for Babson College Magazine. The story highlighted two Babson College alumni, Jamie Rice and John Maguire, who are the head coaches for the Babson College and Waltham High School hockey teams, respectively. I was assigned to shoot portraits of both of them, as well as cover their team’s practice over the winter. Above are some of my favorite outtakes from the shoot, as well as the tear sheets of the stories in the print edition of the magazine.

Thanks to Babson for having me on board!

Photos: 2017 NCAA Men’s Division 1 Lacrosse Championships – Maryland vs. Ohio State.

Here is a set of photographs from the 2017 NCAA Division 1 Men’s Lacrosse National Championship game between the University of Maryland and Ohio State University. The final weekend of the tournament was held this year at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts. I was assigned to cover the game for the University of Maryland Athletics department. 

As a Maryland native, I can’t deny that I was rooting for the Terps to win, not only because of my Maryland pride, but in the hopes of getting some fun pictures of the celebration. Sure enough, the team was in control throughout the game, and pulled out the program’s first National Championship victory in 41 years. I had a good time shooting despite the rain. Championship games like this are always a lot of fun. Thanks to the University of Maryland for having me out!

Photos: 2017 Northeastern University Graduation.

It’s graduation season here in Boston. This year, I was lucky enough to join the very talented photography staff at Northeastern University to cover the graduation commencement ceremonies at TD Garden and Matthews Arena. 

These are some of my favorites. Here is a gallery with some great images from our team. A big thanks to Northeastern for having me out!

Photos: New England Patriots Defeat Pittsburgh Steelers To Win AFC Championship.

Here are a few of my images from the end of this year’s AFC Championship Game at Gillette Stadium between the New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers. I was at the game as an editor for Pittsburgh Steelers Team Photographer and all around good guy, Karl Roser. 

I know what it’s like to work directly for a team, and I know that as a photographer or social media editor, your job can be really tough when things don’t go your team’s way on the field. Unfortunately, that was the case in this game, as Tom Brady and the Patriots rolled past Pittsburgh on their way to the Super Bowl. 

At the end of the game, there weren’t any pictures (from a Steelers PR standpoint) to post, so I was free to shoot some features of the Pats celebrations and trophy ceremony. There were a few nice moments with some of the guys. Thanks again to Karl and the Steelers for having me on board!

2016: Year In Review.

Another year has come to a close, and as I’ve done in the past, I’m taking a little bit of time to look back at my year of shooting. I always think it’s a good exercise that helps you compile what you’ve done, look at how you’ve grown, and see where you still need to learn and improve. It was another busy year in 2016. I’m lucky to be able to say that it was nonstop from January all the way through December. I like to be busy, so I took on a lot this year and worked really hard.  

Above is a gallery of my favorite images and favorite memories from 2016. Click on any individual photo to enlarge it. I’ve also included some of my favorite video pieces from the year. 

I completed my seventh year as a photographer working in Major League Baseball, and my fifth as a Boston Red Sox team photographer. 2016 was a transitional year for us at Fenway Park, as the photography staff was melded into the Marketing Department under a newly formed, specialized group called Creative Services. That transition certainly presented it’s challenges, but also gave me the opportunity to work on some cool projects that I wouldn’t have been able to contribute to in the past. From a shooting standpoint, I had a few lightbulb moments of clarity during the season that I’m excited to build upon starting on day one of Spring Training in 2016. I also felt like I began to push the boundaries a little more, and made better images on a more consistent basis, rather than just here and there. I wan to continue to be bolder, closer, and more creative in my shooting for the Red Sox in 2017.

As in year’s past, with my full-time responsibilities at the Red Sox, I’ve had to make some sacrifices on the freelance side of my career. Still, I was able to navigate the schedule and take on as much freelance work as I possibly could. It was great to be back at the BNP Paribas Open and Connecticut Open to keep shooting the professional tennis world that I love so much. As you’ll see above, there were several unique sporting events that I go to cover for Getty Images, which I’m very thankful for. I also tried my best to continue to work for new clients, and maintain relationships I’ve built over time with old ones.  

On the video side, I continued to shoot, edit, and produce work. While I didn’t make as many videos this year as in 2015, I believe the ones I did make were of much higher quality, and were more polished overall. I’m excited to continue growing on the video side in the coming year. 

As with every year, I learned a lot, both professionally and personally. There are still questions that I toss around in my head all the time. Am I doing the right thing? Am I working enough? Am I working too much? Am I where I want to be in my career? I’m not sure the answers to these questions ever become crystal clear, so I just try to keep my head down, work hard, and trust the process. What’s most important is how lucky I am to be surrounded by amazing people in all areas of my life. Friends, family, colleagues, and mentors. I’m thankful for the support and love I feel from so many people every day. 

As always, thank you for following along all year! Happy New Year!

I’m excited for 2017.
