Photos: 2015 BNP Paribas Open – Day 1.

I’ve returned to beautiful, sunny Palm Springs, California, where I’m here to shoot my third BNP Paribas Open tennis tournament. After a long, tough winter in Boston, naturally I’m thrilled to be out here shooting tennis in the sunshine for a few weeks.

This is one of the best tournaments on tour, so I’m excited to get some really good photo and video coverage for the tournament website, social media channels, and marketing materials. 

I’m here a week before the tournament starts to cover several things happening, including the second annual John McEnroe Challenge for Charity, which brings former tennis stars and current players together for a night of exhibition matches to raise money for various charities. Last night was the draw ceremony and VIP reception for the event, so I’ve included a few pictures from that. John McEnroe was of course in the house, along with James Blake, Andy Roddick, Tracy Austin, Lindsay Davenport, Rick Leach, Coco Vandeweghe, and others. 

I’ll be sure to post updates daily as the tournament goes on!

Hard to believe, but we’re underway here at Wimbledon. The gates at the All England Lawn & Tennis Club opened up today for Day One of the 2013 Championships. 

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!
