Alex Verdugo: New Kid On The Block.

Before returning to to Arizona for the offseason, Boston Red Sox outfielder Alex Verdugo stopped by Fenway Park to to catch up with the Red Sox content crew and pose for some portraits around the ballpark. Here’s my set of images, as well as a behind the scenes video I helped produce.

Boston Red Sox Photos: First Snow Of 2020.

Yesterday, in a strange twist of events, it snowed for the first time in 2020. This is the first time I can remember the trees being in full autumn color as snow fell. The weirdness continues. Here are some beauties from a peaceful day at the park.

Photos & Video: ‘Is This Still Soccer?’

Above are a looping video and still images I shot for a recent story on the new safety rules governing high school soccer amid the coronavirus pandemic. These visuals accompanied a written story in The New York Times.

This was an interesting story to work on as the sport looks nothing like what we’re used to. Physical contact, slide tackles, headers, and throw-ins are now all considered penalties, so shooting the game took a different approach to illustrate those restrictions. I achieved the video clip of a goal being scored by clamping a remote camera to the top of the goal and hoping for the best.

Here is a link to the full story online, written by reporter Andrew Keh. A big thanks to the picture desk at the Times for having me shoot the story. It felt good to be shoot an assignment for the first time since college.

Portraits: Boston College Men’s And Women’s Basketball 2020 Photo Day.

I was back at Boston College to shoot another year of portraits of their 2020 Men’s and Women’s basketball teams. These two looks were shot simultaneously on two separate lighting setups with six lights used in total. The clean white look offers a simple portrait that can stand alone as an image or be used for graphic cutouts, and the maroon and gold setups provide a secondary creative option.

A huge thanks to BC athletics for having me shoot these!

Boston Red Sox Photos: Wednesday, September 23, 2020 Vs. Baltimore Orioles.

Another win tonight in the second to last home game of the season. I took a little stroll outside to take in the strange emptiness during game time. It’s such a stark contrast to the usual hustle in the neighborhood during game time. It’s a really weird time to be working.

Another win for the boys last night, as newly acquired pitcher Nick Pivetta made his debut with the Boston Red Sox. We are winding down our season and now just have two more games until the end.

Wow, a wild day at Fenway. We had some nice late afternoon light to work with, as well as a man who somehow made his way into Fenway and caused an interruption to the game. A scary moment.

Red Sox pulled out the victory as we cruise down the final stretch of this bizarre season.

Not a whole lot to show from this one! Just some personality details for the most part.

Back at it for the final homestead of the season. A tough loss last night in extra innings in cold Fenway. Fall is officially here. 

Photos: Nascar Thompson 150 at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park

It was great to return to the Nascar track for the first time since 2015! Albeit under completely different circumstances operating during a pandemic, it felt nice to get some variety this year and shoot some action and features at Thompson Speedway Motorsports Park in Connecticut for Nascar. 

Here is a spray of features and action from the day in Thompson!
