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

Portraits: Tufts University Gordon Institute.

Here is a selection of student portraits shot for The Tufts Gordon Institute at Tufts University. The institute was looking for individual portraits of the students in this year’s MS and Innovation Management Program. This was the third year we’ve worked on this project together. 

We decided upon a simple three light high-key set up for a classic, seamless look on a white backdrop. All of the students were fantastic to work with, and weren’t afraid to let their personalities show through in front of the camera. Above are some of my favorites from the two days of shooting.

Many thanks to Tufts University for having me on board!

Portraits: Boston College Men’s And Women’s Basketball 2020 Photo Day.

I was back at Boston College to shoot another year of portraits of their 2020 Men’s and Women’s basketball teams. These two looks were shot simultaneously on two separate lighting setups with six lights used in total. The clean white look offers a simple portrait that can stand alone as an image or be used for graphic cutouts, and the maroon and gold setups provide a secondary creative option.

A huge thanks to BC athletics for having me shoot these!

Photos: Front Porch Project Family Portraits.

I grabbed my cameras and hit the road this week to take family portraits of four great families who requested to take part in the Front Porch Challenge, a photography trend playing out during the Coronavirus pandemic. The challenge calls for photographers to shoot portraits of families standing on their front porches from a safe distance away. Here are a few samples from the day!

Magazine Cover: Xander Bogaerts And Rafael Devers.

Here’s a new cover image shot for Red Sox Magazine of shortstop Xander Bogaerts and third baseman Rafael Devers. I shot this portrait several weeks ago in the grounds crew warehouse at jetBlue Park in Fort Myers toward the end of Spring Training.

This portrait involved a three light set up – a main light in front with a six foot parabolic umbrella and two rim strobes with gridded strip boxes flanking the players from behind. We put some dirt on the floor to accentuate the gritty look, and topped it off with a few seconds of smoke from a machine. I’m happy with the results! A big thanks to the Fenway South grounds crew for their help in getting the space primed to shoot in, and thanks to Xander and Raffy for their time. 

Portraits: Boston College Women’s Basketball 2019 Photo Day.

I was contracted by Boston College Athletics to shoot portraits of the 2019 Women’s Basketball roster of players, coaches, and staff, as well as their official team photo, for their 2019 photo day. I shot these portraits simultaneously on two setups, a black and a white, with a total of five lights. Running two portrait stations at once is no easy task, but I was able to draw on past experience and execute some simple but effective portraits. 

A huge thanks to BC for having me shoot these!

Portraits: Tufts Gordon Institute Student Portraits.

 

Here are some outtakes from a recent shoot I worked on for the Tufts Gordon Instituteat Tufts University. The institute was looking for individual portraits of the students in this year’s MS and Innovation Management Program. This was the second year in a row we have worked on this project together. 

We decided upon a simple three light high-key set up for a classic, seamless look on a white backdrop. All of the students were fantastic to work with, and weren’t afraid to let their personalities show through in front of the camera. Above are some of my favorites from the two days of shooting, converted to black and white.

Portraits: 2018 Boston Red Sox All-Stars.

Here is a set of recent portraits I shot to promote the Boston Red Sox 2018 All-Stars – J.D. Martinez, Mitch Moreland, Chris Sale, Mookie Betts, and Craig Kimbrel. I used a projector beaming an image of stars onto the subjects combined with off-camera gelled strobes and multiple exposure to achieve the look.

I’m happy with how these turned out, and I’m looking forward to exploring more based off of this technique! Thanks to the players for their time.

Photos: Portraits Of Concert Pianist.

Here are a few portraits of concert pianist Lisa Weiss. These were shot in natural light but filled in with a Nikon speedlight firing off camera via pocket wizard remotes. 

Portraits: Tufts Gordon Institute Student Profiles.

 

Here are some outtakes from a recent shoot I worked on for the Tufts Gordon Institute at Tufts University. The institute was looking for individual portraits of the students in this year’s MS and Innovation Management Program. 

We decided upon a simple three light high-key set up for a classic, seamless look on a white backdrop. All of the students were fantastic to work with, and weren’t afraid to let their personalities show through in front of the camera. Above are some of my favorites from the two days of shooting. Below, I’ve also included a gallery of environmental candids of the students in the lab during a classroom session.
