Boston Red Sox Photos: 2017 Opening Day.

We’re back at it again! The 2017 season is underway, as the Boston Red Sox held Opening Day at Fenway Park this afternoon. The team honored the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots with a special pre-game ceremony. There’s never a dull moment when you have personalities like Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski in the same place. The Patriots players had fun with the ceremony, which made for some lighter photos. 

On the field, the Red Sox looked good. Rookie Andrew Benintendi hit a 3-run home run to give the team an Opening Day win over the Pittsburgh Pirates.

This is my sixth Opening Day shooting for the Red Sox, and eighth overall. Is that right?! It’s hard to believe. It’s always a long day, but a lot of fun. 

I have lots more coming from this season!

Photos: New England Patriots Super Bowl Championship Parade.

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!

Boston Red Sox Photos: Tuesday, July 19, 2016 vs. San Francisco Giants.

The San Francisco Giants are at Fenway Park to play the Boston Red Sox for the first time since 2007. Last night marked the first of two interleague games between the two clubs. The Red Sox took game one, as Rick Porcello remained undefeated at Fenway Park on the season and David Ortiz hit a two-run home run.

Before the game, the Red Sox held a Boston Police and Community Leaders ceremony, during which David Ortiz took the microphone to say a few words. New England Patriots Tight End, Rob Gronkowski, also threw out a ceremonial first pitch.

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.
