Another long tough one for us tonight. Just trying to keep it going.

Final game of the homestead tonight. I am trying to fire it up creatively. With no crowd and constraints to work with in, this is a challenge this year for sure. To be honest, it all looks the same already! I’m ready for some much needed rest. 

Boston Red Sox Photos: Opening Day In Wake Of Coronavirus Delay.

After an extended delay due to the coronavirus pandemic, the Boston Red Sox began their 2020 Major League Baseball campaign against the Baltimore Orioles on Opening Night at Fenway Park. 

This was an absolutely wild day to be a part of from beginning to end. I was at the park at 5:15AM for the sunrise, and left at 12:45PM (with a brief nap in the morning). 

A beautiful pre-game ceremony incorporated elements of the Black Lives Matter movement, and remember lives lost due to COVID-19. 

I can’t remember an Opening Day so busy, which is unexpected given we are playing in front of an empty ballpark. Overall, I am tired, but very happy to be here, and feel lucky to have witnessed history yesterday.  

Boston Red Sox Photos: Players Arrive For Summer Camp.

Last week, Boston Red Sox players reported to Fenway Park for Summer Camp. The training period marks the beginning of the 2020 Major League Baseball season after it was delayed due to the Coronavirus pandemic. Below is a gallery of images from the arrival activity.

Took a little road trip yesterday to good old North Port for the Sox game against the Atlanta Braves yesterday. Refreshing to get a different look at a different ballpark. Here are a few. 

Boston Red Sox Photos: 2020 Photo Day.

Team photo day is done and done again this year! Earlier today, our full roster of players and coaches came through our set to pose for portraits ahead of the 2020 season. This day serves as our opportunity to gather the visual assets we need to carry us through across multiple platforms throughout the season. 

Black, white, and red all over was our move this year! Our incredible team designers Marissa McClain and Nick Sciarratta designed this abstract Fenway Park blueprint set with a dramatic color scheme for the players to pose in. As a last minute addition, we threw in some black plexiglass on the ground to add some dimension to the room we created out of the two backdrops. This look had it’s challenges, but I’m proud of our team for putting in the work and trial runs necessary to execute it well. Props to Maddie Malhotra, our staff photographer, for shooting a perfect white seamless set and putting together this fresh looking blog post of our day.

A huge thanks to the players and coaches for their time, and to everyone in our Creative Services and Media Relations teams for making it happen!

Boston Red Sox Spring Training Workout

Boston Red Sox Photos: 2020 Winter Weekend.

Back on the Winter Weekend grind! The Boston Red Sox hosted the sixth annual Baseball Winter Weekend, although at a new home at MGM Casino in Springfield, Massachusetts. The event included a Town Hall Meeting with Red Sox players and leadership, autographs and photo opportunities with Red Sox players, and round-table discussions on a variety of baseball topics. We also tagged along with the players for an exclusive event at the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. 

The new venue presented challenges for us in terms of accessibility and fluidity, but we made the best of what we could, and still have some nice moments from the weekend in photos. Here’s a gallery of some favorite behind the scenes images. 

A job well-done by all members of the Boston Red Sox front office who came together to make it happen!

Boston Red Sox Photos: Portraits At Boston Baseball Writers Dinner.

Here is a set of portraits I shot last week during the annual Boston Baseball Writers Awards dinner at the Seaport Hotel in Boston. Xander Bogaerts, Triston Casas, Rafael Devers, and Michael Chavis all killed it with the fits and posing! I wanted to take advantage of the opportunity to have multiple players together in the same place for the first time since last season ended. With help of the hotel staff and event coordinators, we were able to secure a room to set up a miniature stage for the portraits. We arrived on site a few hours early, and after several rounds of testing and tweaking, were able to get to a point we felt good about. 

These portraits are executed with a three light set up, some seamless paper, and a few props to achieve the stylized, colorful look. I’m aiming to use event opportunities like this to shoot more portraits this year, so this was a good test run in working toward that new model. Thanks to our players for their time, to our PR staff for the assist in getting them there, and to our staff photographer Maddie Malhotra for the set up and break down help!

On to the next look.

Boston Red Sox Photos: Sunday, September 29, 2019 Vs. Baltimore Orioles.

Another season in the books, folks, and what a way to end it! The Sox won in dramatic walk-off fashion as Mookie Betts roared toward home plate to score the game winning run on a ninth inning hit by Rafael Devers. It’s nice that we were able to end on a high.

It wasn’t the season we had all hoped for on the field after last year’s success, but still a great year to be a part of for many reasons. I feel lucky to witness neat things and be a part of some unforgettable experiences every year, even on the down years. We have a great group of players to work with, and an incredibly talented staff of creatives that bring this team and ballpark to life every day. 

That’s the end of my eighth season with the Boston Red Sox, and my tenth in Major League Baseball. I’ll have a more thorough recap of the season in my yearly review towards the end of December. For now, I’m excited for a bit of REST.

Here is a take from our last night game of the 2019 season. It feels weird to not be in playoff contention for the first time in awhile, but I’m looking forward to the much needed break! This weekend, we have some robotic cameras installed on various points within Fenway Park, so it’s been a blast playing with the different angles they provide from above.
