We’ve reached the end of the first week of Wimbledon 2014, so here is a selection from yesterday. A long morning of rain delays made for lots of down time, so I spent most of it hunting for rain features. These are a few of my favorite rain pictures, as well as some action photos and scenes from the queue camping grounds, where camp out for days on end in hopes of getting tickets into the grounds. 

Here and here are galleries with more of my pictures, and here is our “Photographer’s Choice: Best of Week One” gallery, which features the best of the best from a team of incredibly talented photographers and editors. 

I had a lot of fun through week one. On to week two!

Congratulations Mr. Murray!

We had another crazy day at Wimbledon today. Despite rain delays that stopped play for big chunks of time, there was still plenty to shoot and do to keep the visual end of wimbledon.com running smoothly.

I also shot and edited some rain delay video for the website, which I’ll be posting at the end of the tournament.

That’s all from day five.

The first few days of the Slams are always pretty hectic, so I’m going to keep this post short for now. It’s great to be out here. 

Enjoy the photos!

It’s great to be back on the blog after a few weeks away. I’m currently in South London, where I just finished working as Photographer and Social Media editor for www.wimbledon.com at this year’s Championships Wimbledon. I was extremely lucky to have this opportunity, which came as a follow up after working as a photo editor for www.usopen.org at last year’s US Open in New York City. 

I worked all thirteen days of this incredible tournament, shooting photographs of players on the practice courts, Wimbledon matches, visiting celebrities, fans, events, and features around the grounds. I wrote captions for thousands of photographs from wimbledon.com’s team of amazingly talented photographers, as well as built and published 27 galleries for the website. Additionally, I helped manage Wimbledon’s Facebook and Twitter accounts by publishing photos and galleries, responding to online comments and questions, and monitoring audience engagement and activity. In my free time (what free time?) I watched a lot of really good tennis.

Wimbledon is the most important tennis tournament in the world, so it was thrilling to be able to reach out to an audience of approximately one million Facebook fans and 300,000 Twitter followers. Working with such a huge audience, I learned how to effectively increase an online fan base, witnessed first hand how people react and interact on social media, and got a better feel for which types of content people want to see most. 

It was definitely a grind over the last two weeks. It was long hours, long bus rides to and from the grounds, and long walks to the bus (complete with many terrifying encounters with some mangy looking foxes). It was being told every morning that my credential wasn’t good enough to get me into the press centre (even though it was). It was hours of sitting in the “bunker” and the same chicken, potatoes, and butternut squash dinner in the same cafeteria every night. 

But it was also having access to shoot pictures of the best tennis players in the world. It was watching your photos get 5,000 “likes” on Facebook in one hour. It was exploring the pubs in Wimbledon Village. It was being on Centre Court to witness Roger Federer win his 17th grand slam, Serena Williams win her fifth Wimbledon singles title and her 13th doubles title alongside her sister Venus. 

But most importantly, it was the people I met and worked with. It was an honor to work alongside a crew of talented and hardworking journalists, and I’m so happy to have made the connections I did. 

Above is just a small sampling of the photo work I shot over the past two weeks. Click each photo to enlarge if you’d like. As always, thank you for reading!

Now, I’m off to Italy for some rest in the Mediterranean sun.
