Boston Red Sox Photos: Thursday, August 11, 2016 vs. New York Yankees.

Another tough finish to the end of the game for the Red Sox, but last night, the story was all about A-Rod, who played what will most likely be his final game at Fenway Park. I tried to follow him around as much as I could, and though there were some nice images that came out of it. 

Say what you will about him and his career, but he makes for a great subject to shoot. 

Now it’s time for us to get back on track in the hunt for the playoffs.

Boston Red Sox Photos: Saturday, April 30, 2016 vs. New York Yankees.

The New York Yankees are in town for the first series of the season against the Boston Red Sox. I always love shooting this series. Although the rivalry is somewhat subdued relative to where it stood several years ago, the intensity is always still there, and it brings a playoff-like atmosphere to the Park.

Here are photos of game two yesterday, which was a good one for the Red Sox. It’s always great seeing David Ortiz launch a home run against the Yankees. 

Boston has already won the series, but we’re on for game three on ESPN Sunday Night Baseball tonight! More to come.

The New York Yankees are in town for what has turned out to be a huge mid-season series against the Boston Red Sox. The Sox, struggling for the majority of the first half of the season, find themselves just several games behind the first place Yankees after an early summer surge.

Alex Rodriguez set the tone early with a solo home run in the first inning, as the Yankees got the best of Boston in game one.

More baseball to come on this last weekend before the All-Star break.

The past several weeks covering the Red Sox historic and dramatic ride through the playoffs and into the World Series have been unbelievable. For me, it still hasn’t sunk in that we won the World Series, and all of the games and events leading up to now seem so surreal. 

Speaking of surreal, how’s shooting photographs on a duck boat with Boston Red Sox center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury and second basemen Dustin Pedroia and John McDonald while over a million of Boston’s best fans scream at you as you roll along Boylston Street and along the Charles River during the Rolling Rally championship parade? That’s the situation I found myself in last Saturday, and it’s an experience I’ll never forget as long as I live.

Covering a parade is something not many photographers get to do, let alone be stationed on a float or duck boat, so I feel very lucky to have had this opportunity. It’s moments like these which serve as a refreshing reminder why the life of a photojournalist can, at times, be so rewarding, unique, and just plain fun.

These are my favorite images from the parade. There wasn’t much room to maneuver up on top of the boat, but I tried to get some good shots of the guys interacting with fans and holding the trophy, as well as to set the scene with both overall and close-up fan features. 

I think my ears are still ringing from all the screaming. Not that I’m complaining, for the record.

It was another great one at Fenway Park last night, as the Red Sox kept rolling to beat David Price and the Tampa Bay Rays to take a 2-0 series lead in the American League Division Series.

There’s something about this team. They always seem to come up with the timeliest hits and big defensive plays when they need them most. They’ve done that all season, and it’s been more of the same so far this series. David Ortiz was clutch in game two, hitting home runs in both the first and eighth innings. His first one really set the tone and got the crowd into the game early.

Atmosphere is a huge part of the playoffs, so I’m aiming to show that through my photos. Although shooting the regular, tight action photos is necessary, I’ve also been liking the look of these loose action photos that show the crowd and ambience as well. 

Hopefully, I’ll have more chances to play around with that balance in the coming days. The team is down in Tampa right now. One win and we’re on to the ALCS!

A bit late on these, but here are a few photos from the last of the Red Sox three game series against the Orioles last week. I took out the 600mm lens again for this game, so it was interesting to be forced to shoot everything really tight. It’s certainly a challenge and makes you think differently about framing and composition.

Late after last night’s game, Boston Red Sox shortstop Jose Iglesias was traded to the Chicago White Sox for Cy-Young winning starting pitcher, Jake Peavy. I’m sad to see Iglesias go. He’s the type of baseball player I love watching most – slick in the infield, scrappy on the bases, and dependable at the plate. 

Here are a few photos of him during his last game in a Red Sox uniform, as well as a few others from the night. It was a good win for the Sox in the first of a three game series against the Seattle Mariners.

For me, Sunday was more about what happened before the game than the game itself, which I was okay with after shooting two really long games the day before.

The graduating class of Red Sox Scholars were on hand to be recognized during a ceremony before the game, which proves to be a busy day for everyone involved every year. Our photo crew was in early in the morning to shoot head shots of all the graduates and inductees across the street at Fenway High School. After shooting those, we broke down our lights and were quickly back over to the stadium to shoot group photos in front of the scoreboard followed by the pre-game ceremony itself. 

A busy end to a long weekend. Here are the highlights from the day.

I’m just now finding the time to get caught up on photos from the weekend. A rainy day on Friday made for a nice night off but a busy double header on Saturday. 

The Red Sox and Angels split the two games, but because these two teams are so heavy offensively, each game lasted well over four hours. That’s a lot of baseball for one day.

I shot the first game from third base, and the second game from both third and first base.

Back at it at the Park last night, this time from first base pit to shoot game action between the Boston Red Sox and the Minnesota Twins. There were a few strange plays sprinkled throughout the game, which I posted here, but otherwise, not a whole lot was out of the ordinary during this game

It was good to get back into the groove of shooting action, though. Now, if we could just get some warmer weather!
