Boston Red Sox Photos: 2018 Opening Day Vs. Tampa Bay Rays.

We’re underway again at Fenway Park! This week’s Opening Day was my seventh with the Red Sox, and ninth in Major League Baseball. I’m getting old.

As Opening Days go, this was a good one. The Red Sox came from behind to beat the Tampa Bay Rays on a walk-off hit by Hanley Ramirez in the twelfth inning.

Before the game, the team welcomed Winter Olympians and Paralympians from the New England region in a moving pre-game ceremony, which included a special appearance by David Ortiz.

Here are the photos from the game.

Boston Red Sox Photos: 2018 Photo Day.

Early this morning, the full Boston Red Sox roster of players and coaches posed for portraits during photo day, the annual event that allows photographers to gather content for use throughout the 2018 season.

For us in the Red Sox marketing department, photo day is always a tough but stimulating challenge. How do you create a portrait look and feel that is stylized and creative, yet also simple enough to function in an assembly line style shoot of over 60 subjects in a short time period? This year’s result was a five light high-key set up on white seamless. A bit of rim light on each player gave the portraits the finishing touch they needed to separate the subject from the background. 

Above is a gallery of some favorites! A big thanks to everyone in the Red Sox Creative Services and Media Relations teams for making it happen. This day is a true team effort!

Hanley Ramirez, Xander Bogaerts, and Mitch Moreland all went deep last night to power the Red Sox past the Blue Jays. The Red Sox head into the final series of the regular season with a magic number of two games to clinch the American League East Division.

The Red Sox came from behind last night, putting up seven runs in the seventh inning to give the team the lead. That was all Chris Sale needed to record another win on the season. Infielder Sam Travis shined in his Major League debut, providing timely hits to spark the late inning rally. Here are some photos from the night.

The Red Sox won the rubber match of a three game series against the Cubs last night, fueled by a solid pitching outing by Eduardo Rodriguez and four timely runs to break a 2–2 tie in the eighth inning. The team moves on to a four game series against Baltimore tonight.

Another great game yesterday for the Red Sox! Joe Kelly, in his first appearance since coming off the disabled list, threw 6.2 innings of no-hit baseball to shut down the Cleveland Indians.

Right fielder Mookie Betts hit two home runs, including a grand slam to put the game away in the seventh inning.

The rubber match of this three game series happens today!

Boston Red Sox Photos: Wednesday, September 9, 2015 vs. Toronto Blue Jays.

Here are some photos from the last game of a long, busy home stand. David Ortiz continued his hot streak, hitting career home run #498. 

I tried to separate myself from the pack of photographers and move around to shoot from different angles last night. It felt good to be mobile, and it worked out well for the Ortiz home run. 

We’ll see if I’m chasing him around for #500 on the road!

Here are photos from Monday night’s exciting Red Sox walk-off win agains the Toronto Blue Jays. This wasn’t the greatest walk-off for photos from my position at first base, but it’s always good to get wins like these!

It was an absolutely crazy ending to a back and forth game three of the World Series out here in St. Louis. I don’t know what to make of how the game ended, and don’t have much time to post about it right now. 

Here are the photos I shot from my elevated position along the first base line at Busch Stadium. We’ll see how it goes tonight. Hoping for a Red Sox win to even the series!
