2017 US OPEN TENNIS CHAMPIONSHIPS PHOTOS: THURSDAY, AUGUST 31, 2017.

Here is a gallery from my third and final day of the 2017 US Open Tennis Championships. A big thanks to the USTA and the amazing photo team for including me. It’s an honor to be just a small part on a hard working, talented team like this one is.

I’ll be sad to miss the rest of the tennis, but excited to be back in Boston for a busy month of September!

It’s late here so I’m not going to post much, but here are my selects from a long but fun and productive day of shooting on the first day of the 2014 Championships Wimbledon. 

Here and here are links to galleries on wimbledon.com containing some of my images.

I had some successes and some failures, but overall there’s lots to build on moving forward into the tournament. For now, enjoy!

After a bit of last minute planning, I got to shoot the 12th annual Taste of Tennis event at the W New York Hotel in Manhattan last Thursday night on behalf of the very hip tennis fashion and style blog, Tennis Served Fresh. An opening celebration of sorts as we gear up for the 2011 US Open, Taste of Tennis brought the world’s best tennis players and chefs together for a night of cooking, partying, and plenty of photo opps. Be sure to check TSF for a full report of the night’s activity.

This was the first time I’ve shot a red carpet event, although this carpet happened to be green. It was exactly like what we see on television at these types of occasions: hordes of photographers packed together like sardines for two hours screaming at famous people to look their way. 

I was beat by the end of it, but it was extremely exciting to be there. It’s exhilarating to be so close to so many tennis players my own teammates and I have watched throughout the years. 

Thank you to Nick McCarvel for allowing me to shoot for him, and to Ben Snyder for making the connections!
