Boston Red Sox Photos: Monday, April 17, 2017 vs. Tampa Bay Rays.

Marathon Monday in Boston! The annual sporting ritual always falls on Patriot’s Day, which also always coincides with morning baseball. An 11AM start is always strange, but a welcome change of scenery and light. Here are a few from the festivities today!

Boston Red Sox Photos: Tuesday, June 14, 2016 vs. Baltimore Orioles.

We’re back at it at Fenway Park! Last night marked the first game of an upcoming 10 game home stand here in Boston. Despite a close loss in a pitcher’s duel to the Baltimore Orioles, there was still much buzz at the Park. It was Jason Varitek bobble head night, and the Captain himself was in attendance during the game. It was also David Ortiz’ 1000th game played in his career at Fenway Park.

In honor of Flag Day, the American flag was dropped over the Green Monster. Additionally, in recognition of the recent shootings in Orlando, the Red Sox honored the victims with a moment of silence, and donated proceeds of the daily 50-50 raffle to the Florida Disaster Fund.

Here are some scenes from a beautiful night at Fenway Park.

Clay Buchholz pitched a complete game gem yesterday, allowing just one run in the ninth inning to propel the Red Sox to a solid July 4th win over the Houston Astros.

A good day all around for photos! The atmosphere is always great at the park on July 4th. 

More baseball today!

It’s been a busy, cold, but exciting week shooting hockey at Fenway Park during Frozen Fenway 2014. We’ve had lots of games to cover, which has given us the opportunity to get a good variety of images. 

Over the course of the week, I’ve tried to find lots of different looks, not just on game action, but also on those quieter moments before and after the game. I think it’s important to remember that as huge as some of them are, these are just college kids. The chance to play the game they love outdoors in Fenway Park is something very special, and I tried to convey that emotion when possible. During the game, I kept mobile, shooting some periods from down low, some from behind the glass, and some from up high. 

I mentioned in my last post that hockey isn’t something I grew up around, but after these several weeks I feel very comfortable shooting the sport. This was a good introduction, and I hope I can have the opportunity to do more with it in the future. 

It was also neat to shoot a skate-around with one of the all-time hockey greats, Bobby Orr! I threw a few of those pictures in there as well for the Bruins fans out there.

Here’s a few from this year’s Memorial Day ceremonies and action at Fenway Park. We caught a beautiful day for baseball, and the Red Sox pulled through with a solid win.

When you shoot the same event every day, it’s important to constantly challenge yourself to find different ways to make it look interesting. I tried to mix things up a bit yesterday. This game’s “Thing I Learned”: I’m settling in to shooting from the seats more and more as the season goes on. There’s somer really interesting frames to be made. I like the juxtaposition of game action and fan activity. I think I’m going to try to explore that more going forward.

Opening Day at Fenway Park: A moment I’ve long been waiting for, and it fulfilled my every expectation. The energy throughout the stadium was booming, and we couldn’t have asked for a nicer day to begin the season in Boston.

What’s more, the Red Sox opened up this homestand with a solid win

As I did after each game I shot last season, I’ll continue to post one “Thing I Learned” from each game I document this year. This game’s “Thing I Learned”: Navigating through Fenway Park when it’s full of people is incredibly inconvenient. I found myself a bit frustrated after two innings of fighting my way through throngs of drunken fans. Such is the nature of the ballpark, though, and I’ve quickly learned to embrace it!

More to come soon!
