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.

Photos: Jeff Hafley Named Boston College Head Football Coach.

Here’s a set of images from yesterday, as Boston College named Jeff Hafley their new Head Football Coach. I was embedded with the Coach for his morning as he meet with players, staff, and the media. This was a fun assignment to be a part of.

A big thanks to the folks in Boston College Athletics for having me on board. 

Wedding: Shannon & Drew – Boston, Massachusetts.

The Red Sox held the annual #GiftOfSox day, a social media campaign to deliver acts of kindess to fans across Red Sox nation during the Holiday season. As part of this year’s campaign, the Red Sox hosted a real life wedding for fans Shannon and Drew at Fenway Park! Drew proposed to Shannon at the Opening Day game in 2019 at the Park, so once they and the Sox found each other, the wedding came together in just six days. 

Here are some photos from a great day!

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: New England Patriots Vs. Dallas Cowboys – Sunday, November 24, 2019.

Yesterday will go down as the most miserable game I’ve shot to date, in any sport! Constant rain and freezing cold temperatures the whole game from beginning to end made for a pretty rough go of it out on the field. Here are some takeaways from the game. Still thawing. 

Photos: MGM Music Hall At Fenway Groundbreaking.

Fenway Sports Group Real Estate today announced the name of the new, state-of-the-art performing arts center being developed on the corner of Lansdowne and Ipswich Streets: MGM Music Hall at Fenway.

Working with MGM Resorts International (NYSE: MGM) as the naming rights partner, FSGRE is undertaking its first development project with MGM Music Hall at Fenway. The new performing arts center, which will sit beyond the right field bleachers of Fenway Park, will accommodate approximately 5,000 patrons. In addition to hosting a wide variety of live events, the mixed-use venue will offer the opportunity to partner with local schools, colleges, and other neighborhood organizations to create an epicenter for the performing arts community in Boston.

Construction activities on the project are scheduled to begin later this month and a groundbreaking ceremony was held today with BostonMayor Martin J. Walsh. The MGM Music Hall at Fenway is targeted for completion in the fall of 2021. Here are some photos from the event!

Also happy to be alive today and celebrate 30 years of living.

Photos: Harvard University Swimming & Diving.

Had some fun at the pool over the weekend shooting Harvard University Swimming and Diving during their meet against Duke University and Texas A&M. I haven’t shot swimming in awhile, so it was fun to mix things up and try some different stuff.

Thanks to Harvard University Athletics for having me!
