Boston Red Sox Photos: 2020 Photo Day.

Team photo day is done and done again this year! Earlier today, our full roster of players and coaches came through our set to pose for portraits ahead of the 2020 season. This day serves as our opportunity to gather the visual assets we need to carry us through across multiple platforms throughout the season. 

Black, white, and red all over was our move this year! Our incredible team designers Marissa McClain and Nick Sciarratta designed this abstract Fenway Park blueprint set with a dramatic color scheme for the players to pose in. As a last minute addition, we threw in some black plexiglass on the ground to add some dimension to the room we created out of the two backdrops. This look had it’s challenges, but I’m proud of our team for putting in the work and trial runs necessary to execute it well. Props to Maddie Malhotra, our staff photographer, for shooting a perfect white seamless set and putting together this fresh looking blog post of our day.

A huge thanks to the players and coaches for their time, and to everyone in our Creative Services and Media Relations teams for making it happen!

Boston Red Sox Spring Training Workout

Boston Red Sox Photos: Ridealong With Xander Bogaerts.

Earlier this week, I rode in with Boston Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts. I always like to get away from the field with our guys, and this was a good opportunity to do so during Spring Training. Our productions crew made a great video too, which gives you a feel of what the ride was like.

Thanks to Xander for letting me tag along!

Here’s a bunch of photos from my first real day of shooting at Red Sox Spring Training in 2020. Had a good day!

Boston Red Sox Photos: Mookie Betts – A Day In The Life.

A few weeks ago, I spent the day following around Boston Red Sox right fielder, Mookie Betts, at Spring Training in Fort Myers, Florida. I met him at his house in the morning, and along with my friend Luke Fraser, a videographer for Red Sox Productions, we rode into JetBlue Park with him. Once we got to the park, we followed him around for most of the day, shooting his workout routine, pre game habits, actions during the game, and his cool down and exit after it. 

Here is a link to the full photo story, text write up, and video from the day. The results are pretty neat.

There seems to be a trend for this type of storytelling with athletes right now. There’s a desire to see these athletes not just as larger than life players on a ball field, but as humans with personalities and day to day lives like the rest of us. I’ve made it one of my goals to do more storytelling this year, and I think this was a good trial run. I hope that I can build upon this piece to produce more content like this with the players throughout the season. The addition of video also brings the production value of stories like this up a notch, so I want to continue to work with the talented people and resources we have here at the Red Sox to do our best collaborative work together.

Boston Red Sox Photos: 2017 Photo Day Portraits.

Here is a sampling of portraits I shot this year on this year’s team photo day for the Boston Red Sox. These portraits, while not flashy or very artistic, are used for all kinds of marketing assets throughout the season, from cutouts to advertisements.

This was my first year shooting the full roster full of portraits. I was happy to get that experience, and it felt good to get this full type of shoot under my belt.
