It’s past midnight here, and I’m just finishing my edits before I fly back home just a few hours from now. I’m absolutely wiped, but I was lucky enough to be in the photo pits on Centre Court to shoot today’s epic five set men’s final between Roger Federer and Novak Djokovic. Here are some of the highlights from the match. Here is a gallery with several others. 

I’m too tired to post a longer reflection on the tournament overall as I usually do, but simply put, it was one big incredible, valuable, educational, stressful at times, rewarding experience that I’m very grateful to have had.

Goodbye and thank you Wimbledon 2014!

Back to Boston!

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.

I feel good about this take overall! Another day tomorrow.

I’m here in London, England, where I’m lucky enough to be photographing my third straight Wimbledon Tennis Championships.

This year, I’m working as a member of the official tournament photography staff, which shoots for both the tournament website, wimbledon.com, as well as for marketing and publications within the All England Lawn and Tennis Club. This is my first year working for this department, so it’s needless to say that I’m thrilled to have this opportunity.

Today was my first day shooting, so I spent it getting my bearings and learning the new system. These photos are a mix of activity out on the practice courts and a few introductory press conferences. 

Here and here are links to two galleries on the tournament website that feature my photos. 

I’m looking forward to posting every day as the tournament goes on!

Greetings from London! I’m lucky enough to be here for the next two weeks working as a photographer and videographer at the 2013 Championships Wimbledon. It’s great to be back here after shooting this tournament last year for the first time. I’m still a bit jet lagged, but it strangely feels like I never left.

The Championships don’t start until Monday, so today and tomorrow, I’m on the hunt for features and players getting themselves ready for play. I just so happened to run into the two biggest guys, Roger Federer and Rafael Nadal, out on the courts today. Here is the full gallery of my photos from the day. 

I’m really looking forward to seeing all the work produced our incredibly talented crew at wimbledon.com over the next two weeks. Stay tuned for more posts throughout the tournament, hopefully every day!
