The past several weeks covering the Red Sox historic and dramatic ride through the playoffs and into the World Series have been unbelievable. For me, it still hasn’t sunk in that we won the World Series, and all of the games and events leading up to now seem so surreal. 

Speaking of surreal, how’s shooting photographs on a duck boat with Boston Red Sox center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury and second basemen Dustin Pedroia and John McDonald while over a million of Boston’s best fans scream at you as you roll along Boylston Street and along the Charles River during the Rolling Rally championship parade? That’s the situation I found myself in last Saturday, and it’s an experience I’ll never forget as long as I live.

Covering a parade is something not many photographers get to do, let alone be stationed on a float or duck boat, so I feel very lucky to have had this opportunity. It’s moments like these which serve as a refreshing reminder why the life of a photojournalist can, at times, be so rewarding, unique, and just plain fun.

These are my favorite images from the parade. There wasn’t much room to maneuver up on top of the boat, but I tried to get some good shots of the guys interacting with fans and holding the trophy, as well as to set the scene with both overall and close-up fan features. 

I think my ears are still ringing from all the screaming. Not that I’m complaining, for the record.

So there it is. 
 
The Boston Red Sox are the champions of the world and my long time dream of working for the team and photographing them win the World Series has come true. 
 
It still hasn’t completely sunk in, to be honest, but I’m finally finding a little bit of time to at least get this post together and reflect on this whole experience. 
 
I’m thrilled that we were ultimately able to beat the St. Louis Cardinals, but I’ll start off by acknowledging that had we lost, I still would have felt incredibly lucky to have been a part of this year’s run during the regular season, through the playoffs, and into the World Series. There are journalists, writers, photographers, and other team employees of all types that go their entire careers without the chance to work a World Series, let alone win one. I think that’s important to keep in mind. In no way do I take this opportunity for granted. 
 
Shooting for a team as opposed to a newspaper or magazine or wire service is different in that you’re far more invested in the team’s performance. Not only is that notion of journalistic independence from your subjects gone, but your life revolves around the organization. You spend every day at the Park. You work with people from all parts of the organization, from media relations to marketing to baseball operations to the players and coaches themselves. Just as Major Leaguers make it their goal to win the World Series every year, I go about my work with the same mentality: bring it every day and do my part to make that happen. It must be the athlete in me. 
 
Our left fielder, Jonny Gomes, said it best over the microphone at a gathering with players and front office members just hours after the team won: “You guys are champs, too.”
 
This year has been unlike any other Boston has ever seen, and this was the perfect ending to a tragic but inspirational story that has grown since Marathon Monday back in April. I feel lucky to have done my part in documenting all the great work the Boston Red Sox organization has done in response to help heal the city, from charity events to pre-game ceremonies to thrilling wins. From the first game back at Fenway after the bombings to the game six of the World Series, this organization has embodied what “Boston Strong” is all about. It became the common thread that kept everyone together. 
 
I got my first taste of the playoffs last year in Baltimore while shooting two games of the ALDS between the Orioles and the Yankees at Camden Yards, but from a professional standpoint, this year’s playoff experience was constructive and valuable for me. With the playoffs comes a whole new set of responsibilities: arranging photo positions in the pits, working to accommodate scores of photographers from all over the world in your home stadium, traveling to work in other cities and stadiums, and pushing images out at a pace, quantity, and quality bigger and better than usual. Many of these things I hadn’t dealt with before. It’s all great fun, but it is a grind. Needless to say, I have yet to catch up on sleep, and I’m glad that these games are over for awhile. They were tense, to say the least, and watching them was both physically and emotionally exhausting at times. 
 
Baseball’s biggest stage also brings the world’s most talented sports photographers and editors into one place, so as a young photographer, it was a pleasure to meet so many shooters whose work I admire, and to re-connect with colleagues I’ve met before. 
 
This job is demanding and at times very grueling, so I’m thankful to many people for helping me along the way. I owe thanks to all my family and friends for their unconditional love, support, and understanding (even the O’s and Yankees fans, people who think baseball is boring, etc.). I also owe thanks to all those in the Red Sox community, and in particular, to the photography staff I work with. Mike, Brita, Cindy, Brian, Steve, Cummo and Marissa are all ridiculously talented photographers, and more importantly, are all great people. I’m honored to have gotten the opportunities I’ve had as a part of that group. 
 
Here are the photos from the game six victory! Thanks so much for following along all season. It’s been a dream come true.

The Red Sox won game four of the World Series last night, tying up the series at two games a piece. This was another dramatic, crazy game with an even crazier ending.

Nobody expected Koji Uehara to end the game by picking off Cardinals pinch runner Kolten Wong at first base (which is the first time in history a World Series game has ended on a pick off), and it happened so fast that I’m surprised I got any pictures out of it. 

I’m getting ready to head to the stadium for game five, so there isn’t much time to post, but here are the highlights from the pick off and from Jonny Gomes’ huge three run home run.

Let’s hope for another Boston win tonight!

It was an absolutely crazy ending to a back and forth game three of the World Series out here in St. Louis. I don’t know what to make of how the game ended, and don’t have much time to post about it right now. 

Here are the photos I shot from my elevated position along the first base line at Busch Stadium. We’ll see how it goes tonight. Hoping for a Red Sox win to even the series!

Overall, it wasn’t a huge night for action photos from my spot along third base, but here are the highlights. On to game three!

Happy 2013 World Series!

Things are buzzing at Fenway Park in anticipation of game one tonight between the Boston Red Sox and St. Louis Cardinals. Yesterday, we were busy shooting team media day and press conferences, as well as the team workout. 

After a brief patch of rain, the skies did all sorts of crazy things, and we were treated to one of the best sunsets I’ve ever seen and a rainbow over the park to boot. Let’s hope that’s a good luck omen for the Sox!
