BOSTON RED SOX PHOTOS: Wednesday, April 15, 2015 Vs. Washington Nationals.

Above is a selection of images from an emotional day at Fenway Park. In honor of Jackie Robinson Day, all players and coaches on both teams (and across Major League Baseball) wore the number 42 on their jerseys. 

Today also marked the two year anniversary of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing. In recognition, the Boston Red Sox invited survivors and heroes involved with the Marathon to come back and take part in some special pre-game ceremonies. At 2:49 PM, the time of the explosions, the ballpark, along with the entire city, paused for a moment of silence.

Days like these are a tough but necessary reminder of how precious life can be, and it’s amazing to see how those there today have managed to resume their lives with such strength and resilience. 

Photos: 2015 Boston Red Sox Opening Day.

 

Baseball is back in Boston! Yesterday was a long, busy day for the Red Sox photography department, but also a day filled with amazing photo opportunities.

The Red Sox paid tribute to the New England Patriots, who won their fourth Super Bowl this year. Quarterback Tom Brady, Head Coach Bill Belichick, Team President Jonathan Kraft, and Team Owner Robert Kraft were introduced on field. The Red Sox also inducted ALS Survivor Pete Frates as an official member of the team, and recognized local kids as part of the new Calling All Kids initiative.

During the game, it was the Mookie Betts show, as he hits a three-run home run, robbed a home run in center field, and displayed some heads up base running. An exciting pre-game ceremony and a 9-4 Red Sox win made for a great start to the season!

I’ll be sure to post often as the season goes on – my fourth for the Red Sox, sixth for MLB, and first as a full-time Staff Photographer.

Video: Boston Breakers ECNL Soccer Commercial.

This is a 30 second promotional commercial I shot and edited for Elite Clubs National League (ECNL) Soccer, featuring the Boston Breakers 17 and 18 year old soccer franchises. It was filmed at their practice at Dedham High School in Dedham, Massachusetts, leading up to a National showcase tournament in San Diego, California.

The concept was to show what goes through an athlete’s mind in those big moments in life: big practices, big games, big events. The goal is to appeal to an audience of high school aged girls.

The promo combines HD DSLR footage and aerial drone footage, and was published on the league’s social media channels.

Photos: Boston’s Marty Walsh Visits Fenway Park.

Today is Opening Day for the 2015 Major League Baseball season! It’s hard to believe the winter is over and the season is back upon us. 

As has been tradition in recent years, Boston’s Mayor, Marty Walsh, came to Fenway Park this morning to recognize the start of the season and to view recent improvements and additions to the ballpark. 

The walk through also coincided with the opening of ‘Gate K,’ a concourse in the ballpark designated for kids, as well as the announcement of a Historically Black Colleges and Universities game to be played here later this month.

Here are a few moments from the morning!

Photos: Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum Celebrates Nasturtiums.

It’s always a pleasure to shoot for the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum in Boston. Last night, the museum celebrated the annual springtime arrival of the Nasturtium flowers, which you’ll see above. 

Here are some photos from the event! Thank you to the Gardner for having me in!

2015 BNP Paribas Open – Day 15.

Above is a gallery of photos from both the men’s and women’s singles finals matches at the 2015 BNP Paribas Open. I’m a bit late in posting these, but it’s been a crazy few days of traveling and getting back into the swing of things in Boston.

Sunday made for an amazing day of tennis, with two back and forth, three set matches. In the end, Simona Halep and Novak Djokovic were able to pull off wins against Jelena Jankovic and Roger Federer. These are some of my favorites from the day.

And with that, the tournament comes to a close! Indian Wells has a special place in my heart, and just like years before, my experience working for the tournament web and social media team was incredible. It was long days in 90 plus degree heat, tired legs and sore shoulders. But it was also amazing tennis, unparalleled access, and genuinely great people to work with. 

I believe that any place or experience is only as good as the people it’s shared with, and the team of writers, photographers, editors, social media specialists, and public relations experts that I am lucky to be a part of is second to none. I owe many thanks to each person on our team. They are all talented, creative, hard working, and fun to be around.

I hope I’m able to continue working in tennis in the future!

2015 BNP Paribas Open – Day 14.

Here are photos from the men’s semi-finals and the men’s and women’s doubles finals. Not a lot of time to post so this is a rough cut!

2015 BNP Paribas Open – Day 13.

A crazy day at the BNP Paribas Open yesterday. Rafael Nadal went down to Canadian Milos Raonic in an epic three set match, and Serena Williams, who returned to the tournament for the first time since 2001, pulled out of the draw with a knee injury.

You never know what you’ll get!
