Boston Red Sox Photos: An Off-Day In New York City.

I’m in New York City with the Red Sox to shoot this week’s three-game series against the New York Yankees at Yankee Stadium. The team arrived a day early to the city, so I decided to take advantage and shoot how players and coaches spent their off day in the Big Apple. The concept was to run around the city to catch up with as many of the guys as possible, and shoot what I could. The end result is a photo essay with seven players and coaches doing seven different things in New York. Here’s a recap of how it all went down. A big thanks to the players and their families for being so accommodating and letting me tag along!

Pitcher Matt Barnes went to the Apple Store to check out some iPhones.

 

Manager Alex Cora spent the afternoon with his daughter, Camila.

 

Center fielder Jackie Bradley Jr. visited the Central Park Zoo with his wife, Erin, and daughter, Emerson.

 

Pitcher Drew Pomeranz and his wife, Carolyn, recharged at their New York City home.

 

Catcher Christian Vazquez hopped in a yellow cab.

 

Second baseman Eduardo Nunez took a stroll through Times Square, and caught up with some NYPD members.

 

Right fielder Mookie Betts ate dinner at The Boil restaurant with family and friends.

The Red Sox won their ninth straight game yesterday at Fenway Park, handling the New York Yankees 14-1. This team has been fun to shoot this year!

Feel like I need to mix it up more tonight. I think I was distracted yesterday by the logistical responsibilities that come with a high profile Yankees series. Less stress, more art tonight.

Boston Red Sox Photos: Sunday, April 8, 2018 vs. Tampa Bay Rays.

The Red Sox pulled off one of the crazier wins I’ve seen today, coming from behind 7-2 in the eighth inning to win 8-7. Make that eight straight wins for the team. 

Hot start to the season! I tried to experiment a little bit with off camera strobe inside the tunnel before the game. I am happy with some of the early results and look forward to expanding on the concept more this season.

The Red Sox continued their hot streak, winning their seventh game in a row yesterday. A grand slam by Xander Bogaerts and home runs by Rafael Devers and J.D. Martinez made for a good day of Red Sox shooting. 

Another one today.

Boston Red Sox Photos: 2018 Photo Day.

Early this morning, the full Boston Red Sox roster of players and coaches posed for portraits during photo day, the annual event that allows photographers to gather content for use throughout the 2018 season.

For us in the Red Sox marketing department, photo day is always a tough but stimulating challenge. How do you create a portrait look and feel that is stylized and creative, yet also simple enough to function in an assembly line style shoot of over 60 subjects in a short time period? This year’s result was a five light high-key set up on white seamless. A bit of rim light on each player gave the portraits the finishing touch they needed to separate the subject from the background. 

Above is a gallery of some favorites! A big thanks to everyone in the Red Sox Creative Services and Media Relations teams for making it happen. This day is a true team effort!

Boston Red Sox Photos: First Full Workouts.

Today marked the official first full workout of the Boston Red Sox 2018 Spring Training season. Manager Alex Cora addressed players and staff in a team meeting before the workout began.

Boston Red Sox Photos: 2018 Winter Weekend.

The Boston Red Sox once again hosted a weekend getaway of hot stove fun for fans and families last weekend at the fourth annual “Baseball Winter Weekend” at Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut. The event included a Town Hall Meeting with Red Sox leaders, autographs and photos with Red Sox players, and round-table discussions on a variety of baseball topics. The weekend also included a full baseball festival for fans of all ages and clinics for kids.

Here is a gallery of photos from the weekend.

Catching up on Friday night’s game. The Red Sox weren’t able to get the win to clinch the American League East that night.

Not a pretty one last night, but the magic number is now down to one game to clinch the American League East. One more win and the Red Sox are in, so it could be a wild one tonight!

Boston Red Sox Photos: Wednesday, September 27, 2017 vs. Toronto Blue Jays.

Hanley Ramirez, Xander Bogaerts, and Mitch Moreland all went deep last night to power the Red Sox past the Blue Jays. The Red Sox head into the final series of the regular season with a magic number of two games to clinch the American League East Division.
