Things are getting exciting around here at the grounds of the All England Club, as we’ve reached finals weekend. Today, I was tasked with shooting practice sessions for all four singles finalists in the morning. Above are a few scenes from those practices. 

I was also assigned to get down to Centre Court for the trophy presentations following the championship match between Eugenie Bouchard and Petra Kvitova. With a bit of luck, I was able to get on court for match point, and happened to be positioned with a clean view of Kvitova’s reaction. These are my favorites from the end of the match. It’s always a thrill to witness special moments like these. 

Here and here are two galleries with some more scenes from the day.

We’re down to the final two players on the women’s side, as Petra Kvitova and Eugenie Bouchard have advanced to the finals of this year’s Wimbledon. I was lucky enough to be on Centre Court to shoot both semi-final matches yesterday. It really is a beautiful court, and I loved every minute of being out there. 

These are the highlights from those two matches, as well as a few other scenes from throughout the day. 

Here, here, and here are galleries with more of my photos. Men’s semi-finals are today!

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!
