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!

Another busy but exciting day at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden yesterday. I was on hand to shoot the McEnroe Challenge for charity, which featured the unveiling of a mural of John McEnroe on the tournament grounds, an opening commemorating the first match played on the newly constructed Stadium 2, and exhibition matches with former tennis legends including Jim Courier.

I also shot Kids Day earlier in the afternoon, which made for some fun, refreshing images.

A fun day overall!
