It was another busy one out at the Championships Wimbledon today, but an exciting one to say the least.

I was able to get out early in the morning and roam the grounds while they were still empty. It’s so easy to get caught up in the stress and hustle and bustle of the media workroom and forget what a beautiful place the All England Club really is. Walking around and shooting by myself before the crowds got in was therapeutic, and definitely put me in the right mindset for the rest of the day. 

The photos above are a mix of what I shot throughout the day, including a visit by the Golden Bear himself, Jack Nicklaus. 

Tomorrow I’ll be shooting video, which I’ve done periodically throughout this tournament. I plan to post all my video work from this year’s Wimbledon to the blog when I have a better internet connection and some more time. Until tomorrow!

Things really picked up here on Day Two of the Championships. Matches aside, there were what seemed like endless events, appearances, and happenings around the grounds.

Here are my favorites from the day. By now, I’ve shot several major tennis tournaments, but there are days when I still need to pinch myself. It’s a bit surreal being so close to so many well known people.

Until tomorrow!
