Boston Red Sox Photos: Friday, April 27, 2018 vs. Tampa Bay Rays.

We’re back at it for another homestand at Fenway Park. Not the outcome we wanted for the Red Sox last night against the Rays, but I played around with setting up some strobes and gels in the player tunnel and got some fun results. I look forward to expanding upon the idea more this year. 

Portraits: Boston Red Sox At Casino Night.

Last night, members of the Boston Red Sox attended the annual Casino Night at jetBlue Park, a fundraiser that benefits the Red Sox Foundation. It’s not often that you get the entire team together, so we tried to capitalize on the opportunity and set up some stylized portraits of the players and coaches dressed out of uniform. We went for a vintage look with our backdrop and floor, as well as a few props here and there.

Here is a gallery of the results.

Photos: Major League Baseball Player’s Weekend Portraits.

This weekend, Major League Baseball held it’s first ever Player’s Weekend. The initiative allowed for players to wear nicknames on their jerseys, and use custom made bats, gloves, cleats, etc. to showcase their individual personalities. 

I was asked to shoot formal portraits of several players on both the Boston Red Sox and the Baltimore Orioles to showcase the uniforms. Here is a gallery with a few of those.

Portraits: Mookie Betts For Axe Bat.

Above is a gallery of portraits of Boston Red Sox outfielder, Mookie Betts, that I shot for Axe Bat and Baden Sports. Axe creates the bat handles that Betts, several other Red Sox players, and many Major Leaguers use on their bats. 

Our goal was to showcase Mookie with several models of bats in portraits that could both stand alone as marketable images and also be cut out for use in composite graphics. With that in mind, we decided to place Mookie on gray seamless, and cycle through several different outfits. 

Mookie is always great to work with, and this shoot was no exception. It felt good to get a lengthy portrait shoot under my belt! A big thanks to Axe Bats for the collaboration, and to Red Sox Manager of Photography, Mike Ivins, for the assistance during the shoot.
