Yesterday was another packed day at the BNP Paribas Open. The draws are starting to thin out, so because I’ve got a bit more time with each match, I’m starting to mix things up and get some different angles and looks around court. 

I also had the opportunity to shoot a private meet and greet with Roger Federer and Gladys Knight, the “Empress of Soul,” which was a little side adventure. 

Another big day today. Enjoy the tennis!

I don’t have much time today, so I’m going to keep this post short. I shot lots of good tennis yesterday at the BNP Paribas Open, so here are some selects from the day.

Thanks for looking!

Well, I’m a day late with this post, and a lot has happened since everything you see above, but I still want to get the blog up to date.

The video up top is one I shot and edited from the 2013 BNP Paribas Open Player Party, which was held at the Indian Wells Club. I filmed as all-around media star, Pete Holtermann, interviewed the top players in attendance on the green carpet.

This year, the party had a “disco” theme, so we asked the players about their music preferences and dancing skills. This is kind of a fun piece, I think. Unfortunately, one of the main house lights on the green carpet area blew out halfway through, so the lighting on all of the interviews inconsistent. Regardless, it was neat to be there in the presence of so many pros.

I was running against the clock to get this piece up and out through the tournament social media outlets as soon as possible, so I think there are a few spots where the editing could be tightened up. But, such is life in our nonstop, need-it-now media world.

The photos are an assortment from the day. It’s the standard stuff: press conferences, practice courts, and scenes from around the grounds.

Thanks for looking. Enjoy!
