It’s late here so I’m not going to post much, but here are my selects from a long but fun and productive day of shooting on the first day of the 2014 Championships Wimbledon. 

Here and here are links to galleries on wimbledon.com containing some of my images.

I had some successes and some failures, but overall there’s lots to build on moving forward into the tournament. For now, enjoy!

The 2012 US Open is underway! Today I was hard at work getting back into tennis mode and finding my bearings at the Billie Jean King National Tennis Center.

As usual, it was a crazy day, but loads of fun. I’m not going to write much tonight, but I’ll be shooting a ton over the next two weeks so I hope to post lots of updates.

Here are some of my images from Day 1. Additionally, click here to check out today’s photo galleries on usopen.org, which include both my photos and those of our incredibly talented team of photographers and editors.
