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!

Here is a selection of images from Day 3 of the 2012 US Open. Things are starting to heat up, and emotions were running high on many of the courts yesterday. I caught the tail end of a few very intense matches, including a couple five set battles. 

It was nice to get some good expression out of the players. Screams, fist pumps, and racquet throws serve as a nice break from the normal forehand, backhand, and serve photos.

Here is a link to the photo galleries from the day.

Now, on to Day 4!
