2014: Year In Review.


I always like to make time to reflect back on the year that was. To me, it’s important to have a record of the work that I’ve done throughout the year, and in creating this post, found going back through this year’s work to be a particularly refreshing experience. I shot a lot, probably more than I have in any other year, and was lucky to be witness to some very special, historic moments. 

Above is a loosely edited gallery of my favorite pictures and favorite memories from 2014. Click on any individual photo to enlarge it. I’ve also included just a few of my favorite video pieces from the year.

I completed my fifth year as a photographer working in Major League Baseball, and my third as a Boston Red Sox team photographer. Although the season didn’t live up to the dream World Series run of 2013, I still enjoyed every second of it. Fenway Park is always an exciting place, regardless of whether the team is winning or losing.

I continued to stay busy on the professional tennis tour as well, and worked as the official tournament photographer for my second BNP Paribas Open in Indian Wells, California, as a tournament photographer at my third Championships Wimbledon in London, England, as the tournament photographer for my second Connecticut Open in New Haven, Connecticut, and as a shooter at several events and appearances in between. 

I kept traveling quite a bit, and thanks to a great working relationship with Elite Clubs National League Soccer, shot video and photos at tournaments in Florida, California, Arizona, and New Jersey. I also had the wonderful opportunity to work as part of the Getty Images team as a picture editor for NFL, and was embedded with an incredibly talented team at every New England Patriots home game this season. 

On this blog, I posted a lot, and gave the site a much needed facelift. I’ve loved continuing to keep this record of my life and work, and I’m thankful for those who follow along. Here are the statistics from my yearly blogging report:

“The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 16,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 6 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.”

Overall, 2014 was a fantastic year. Like any year, there were highs and lows, and I learned a lot about myself and the profession I work in. But during this season, I’m always reminded of how lucky and thankful I am to be surrounded by so many talented, caring, and supportive colleagues, friends, and family members. I believe one’s work is only as meaningful as the people it’s spent with. Everyone continues to do big things, and it’s great to see how far we’ve all come this year!

Happy New Year! Much more to come in 2015!
