Here are a few stills from last weekend’s game between the Patriots and the Texans. I was on hand to edit for the Getty Sport team, but filled in to shoot as well during a few key moments. Of course, all eyes were on both teams during the National Anthem, so I was out there to shoot the Patriots sideline as they kneeled. Looking forward to more football this year!
Last week, I was lucky to have the opportunity to photograph the New England Patriots 2017 opener against the Kansas City Chiefs for The Players’ Tribune. The game had been hyped up for weeks ahead of time, as the Patriots were set to unveil their fifth Super Bowl Championship banner. In addition, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was set to make an appearance at the game in the wake of ‘Deflategate,’ so the night was rich with storylines to cover. Ultimately, the Chiefs got the last laugh, as they defeated the Patriots 42-27.
I had a great time shooting on my first assignment for The Players’ Tribune. I didn’t have any specific requirements, so I had the freedom to take risks and shoot with a blank slate. Here’s a gallery of some favorites in black and white.
A big thanks to the team at TPT for having me on board! And a shoutout to my friend Dave in town from Baltimore, who I had to bail on last minute to shoot the game. 10 years later you finally made it on the blog.
Boston is titletown, and with the New England Patriots unforgettable come from behind Super Bowl victory on Sunday, it was time to cue the Duck Boats for the city’s 10th championship parade in the last sixteen years. I was assigned to cover the parade for the team at Getty Images.
This was the third championship parade that I’ve shot in Boston, so for the most part I knew what to expect and how to prepare. The key is getting the right access, which can be difficult sometimes with these large scale events. Luckily, things worked out well and I was able to get some fun images.
Conditions were less than ideal. Cold, grey, and snowing/raining the whole time, and walking the entire parade route in those conditions with three cameras and a backpack over your shoulders was hard work. My whole body is a little sore tonight. But the adrenaline takes over and gets you through it, and I really enjoyed being out there.
Thanks to Getty Images for having me on board!
Here are a few of my images from the end of this year’s AFC Championship Game at Gillette Stadium between the New England Patriots and the Pittsburgh Steelers. I was at the game as an editor for Pittsburgh Steelers Team Photographer and all around good guy, Karl Roser.
I know what it’s like to work directly for a team, and I know that as a photographer or social media editor, your job can be really tough when things don’t go your team’s way on the field. Unfortunately, that was the case in this game, as Tom Brady and the Patriots rolled past Pittsburgh on their way to the Super Bowl.
At the end of the game, there weren’t any pictures (from a Steelers PR standpoint) to post, so I was free to shoot some features of the Pats celebrations and trophy ceremony. There were a few nice moments with some of the guys. Thanks again to Karl and the Steelers for having me on board!
Here is a set of images from a Christmas Eve game between the New England Patriots and the New York Jets at Gillette Stadium.
This game was a complete blowout in favor of the Patriots, so aside from the first half, it was pretty much operating on cruise control from a photo standpoint. Still, there were some nice moments, particularly with the heavy rain falling in the first quarter, and I had a great time shooting. These are a few of my pics from the day.
Thanks to Getty Images for having me on board for the day!
I was on hand yesterday at Gillette Stadium for the game between the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks. I was there to edit for Getty Images team, so I didn’t have much time to shoot. This is by no means a complete take of the game, but just a few selects I was able to grab in the free time I had at the beginning and end of the game.
Hoping to shoot more football this season.
Here are some images from Tom Brady’s return to Gillette Stadium in Foxboro today for this first time since serving his suspension from the National Football League. I covered the Patriots’ game against the Cincinnati Bengals for Getty Images.
Nothing too crazy in the way of action or reaction from my side of the field, the visitor’s side. The Patriots shut this one down pretty quickly in the second half, and many of the New England jubilation moments happened on the far side.
It felt great to be shooting football! I’m hoping to shoot more games this season.
I was lucky enough to be asked to come out and assist for Sports Illustrated during last Sunday night’s classic match up between the New England Patriots and the Denver Broncos at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough. The storyline was clear: two of the best quarterbacks of all time battling it out in front of a national Sunday Night Football audience on the windiest, coldest night of the year in New England.
The game lived up to all the hype, although it didn’t seem that way at the end of the first half. Peyton Manning and the Broncos came out on fire, shutting out Tom Brady and the Patriots 24-0 through the first half.
I don’t follow football to the extent that I do some other sports, but I know enough to never count out Bill Belichick, Tom Brady, and the Patriots’ ability to make adjustments mid-game. I knew they’d make things interesting in the second half, and sure enough, the Patriots came roaring back, forced the game to overtime, and won on a 31-yard field goal by Stephen Gostkowski.
What a game, not just for what happened on the field, but for the conditions we all were working in. This was the coldest weather I’ve ever experienced, and despite my endless layers of clothing, it was impossible to keep completely warm. With the wind chill, temperatures hovered around five degrees all game.
It wasn’t comfortable, and it wasn’t easy to work in, but as a photographer out there, you can’t be distracted by the conditions. That’s just part of the job sometimes.
