Boston Red Sox Photos: 2019 Photo Day.

Another Boston Red Sox team photo day is in the books! Early yesterday morning, the full roster of Red Sox players and coaches posed for portraits during the annual event. This is always a great opportunity for our creative department to gather visual content to use ahead of the upcoming season.

This year, we re-created our white seamless look from last year as a safety net, but also went big and bold with a full red look. We built out a set with red seamless backdrops and a stage dressed in red turf to recreate the look of a room corner. We also mixed in red baseballs, bats, a red Fenway Park seat, and other red props to give the shoot some flare. 

This was a risk for us, but I’m so proud of our team for executing this so flawlessly. I’m super happy with these results. A big thanks to the players for their time, and for everyone in the Creative Services and Media Relations teams for making it happen.

Boston Red Sox Photos: 2018 Photo Day.

Early this morning, the full Boston Red Sox roster of players and coaches posed for portraits during photo day, the annual event that allows photographers to gather content for use throughout the 2018 season.

For us in the Red Sox marketing department, photo day is always a tough but stimulating challenge. How do you create a portrait look and feel that is stylized and creative, yet also simple enough to function in an assembly line style shoot of over 60 subjects in a short time period? This year’s result was a five light high-key set up on white seamless. A bit of rim light on each player gave the portraits the finishing touch they needed to separate the subject from the background. 

Above is a gallery of some favorites! A big thanks to everyone in the Red Sox Creative Services and Media Relations teams for making it happen. This day is a true team effort!
