Motion GIFs: Boston Red Sox Spring Training

Here are some motion GIFs I created during Boston Red Sox spring training. The looping polaroid portraits are a combination of video clips and still images, and the burst GIFs are comprised entirely of still images. I am looking to incorporate more motion into my work this season.

Here’s a recent portrait shoot of Boston Red Sox infielder Michael Chavis for New Balance and New Balance Baseball.

Another win for the boys last night, as newly acquired pitcher Nick Pivetta made his debut with the Boston Red Sox. We are winding down our season and now just have two more games until the end.

End of a massive homestead. I am exhausted and glad it’s over. That being said, I had fun this week shooting.

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.

Boston Red Sox Photos: Friday, March 6, 2020 Vs. Atlanta Braves.

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!
