2017 BNP Paribas Open: Sunday, March 20, 2017.

Here are photos from championship Sunday at this year’s BNP Paribas Open. This was the 5th time I’ve shot this tournament. That’s hard to believe. Shooting around the grounds in the 90 plus degree heat has become second nature to me by this point, but with familiarity comes the challenge of making what you shoot look unique and different from years past. It’s a good challenge every year, and this go around was just that – a good challenge. 

It’s not just a challenge creatively, either. 15-plus hour days in the desert sun with no days off is really difficult to do. By the end of this tournament, I was completely spent, both physically and mentally. Luckily, I think pacing is something you learn as you get older. I feel like I’ve gotten a little better at this over the years, at least. 

While the tennis is always amazing in Indian Wells, what keeps me coming back year after year are the people I work with. I’m so lucky to be included each year as part of an incredibly talented, hard working, fun group of photographers, editors, writers, videographers, and social media gurus. Having a team of people like this around you pushes you to be better, and it’s amazing to see ideas and concepts come to life through the collaboration among us. Thanks again to everyone on the team – you know who you are!

After a month in Florida for Spring Training, followed immediately by 10 days at this tournament, I’m back in Boston and catching up on rest. But not too much rest. Opening Day is in 11 days!

Yesterday was another full day of tennis in Indian Wells. Roger Federer wiped Rafael Nadal off the court. It’s always a fun match up to shoot.

2015 BNP Paribas Open – Day 15.

Above is a gallery of photos from both the men’s and women’s singles finals matches at the 2015 BNP Paribas Open. I’m a bit late in posting these, but it’s been a crazy few days of traveling and getting back into the swing of things in Boston.

Sunday made for an amazing day of tennis, with two back and forth, three set matches. In the end, Simona Halep and Novak Djokovic were able to pull off wins against Jelena Jankovic and Roger Federer. These are some of my favorites from the day.

And with that, the tournament comes to a close! Indian Wells has a special place in my heart, and just like years before, my experience working for the tournament web and social media team was incredible. It was long days in 90 plus degree heat, tired legs and sore shoulders. But it was also amazing tennis, unparalleled access, and genuinely great people to work with. 

I believe that any place or experience is only as good as the people it’s shared with, and the team of writers, photographers, editors, social media specialists, and public relations experts that I am lucky to be a part of is second to none. I owe many thanks to each person on our team. They are all talented, creative, hard working, and fun to be around.

I hope I’m able to continue working in tennis in the future!
