Boston Red Sox Photography: Crews prep park for Opening Day 2012.

Here’s some good images from my first official assignment with the Boston Red Sox!

My goal was to capture the various clean up and construction crews prepping the stadium for this Friday’s big home opener. I got a lot out of this assignment, as basic as it was. I did several laps around the stadium, so I familiarized myself with the ins and outs and learned the quickest ways to get where I need to go. 

I also got accustomed to working with Nikon cameras, which I’d never done before. I’ve shot Canon my whole life, and the Orioles supplied me with Canon gear, so this year will be a bit of an adjustment. Before I started roaming, I sat down in the Monster Seats and tinkered with the cameras. It definitely took me a little bit of getting used to, but I got the hang of those things after about twenty minutes. Comparing Canons to Nikons is a bit ridiculous, because both companies make incredible products, but I know that even after this season, I’ll remain a Canon guy. 

Otherwise, what more can I say. Taking pictures of Fenway Park at high noon on a 65 degree day is what they call “work”?
