Things are getting exciting around here at the grounds of the All England Club, as we’ve reached finals weekend. Today, I was tasked with shooting practice sessions for all four singles finalists in the morning. Above are a few scenes from those practices. 

I was also assigned to get down to Centre Court for the trophy presentations following the championship match between Eugenie Bouchard and Petra Kvitova. With a bit of luck, I was able to get on court for match point, and happened to be positioned with a clean view of Kvitova’s reaction. These are my favorites from the end of the match. It’s always a thrill to witness special moments like these. 

Here and here are two galleries with some more scenes from the day.

I’m here in London, England, where I’m lucky enough to be photographing my third straight Wimbledon Tennis Championships.

This year, I’m working as a member of the official tournament photography staff, which shoots for both the tournament website, wimbledon.com, as well as for marketing and publications within the All England Lawn and Tennis Club. This is my first year working for this department, so it’s needless to say that I’m thrilled to have this opportunity.

Today was my first day shooting, so I spent it getting my bearings and learning the new system. These photos are a mix of activity out on the practice courts and a few introductory press conferences. 

Here and here are links to two galleries on the tournament website that feature my photos. 

I’m looking forward to posting every day as the tournament goes on!
