Here is a gallery of photos from a private event at Fenway Park I shot for Merrimack Pharmaceuticals several months ago.
I’ve come to enjoy shooting corporate types of events like these. It’s a completely different pace from shooting sports, but it’s a good, marketable skill to have as a photographer. In 2016, I’d like to figure out how to work more shoots like these into the portfolios and posts that I share publicly.
Here is a selection of images from a B’Nai B’Rith event at Fenway Park honoring Boston Red Sox President & CEO Emeritus, Larry Lucchino.
Last week, the Red Sox hit the road for their annual Holiday Caravan, which brings players to local hospitals and community centers to visit patients and kids.
Pitchers Noe Ramirez and Robbie Ross Jr. and infielder Deven Marrero participated this year. They were also accompanied for a few of the stops by newly acquired all-star reliever, Craig Kimbrel.
Over the two days, we visited Boston Children’s Hospital, Dana-Farber Cancer Institute, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, Shriner’s Hospital for Children, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston Medical Center, and the Base, a baseball training center for urban youth.
This is a long few days for everyone involved, but it’s a nice thing that the team does, especially at this time of year. I always think it really makes a difference, no matter how cliché that sounds.
Here are some photos.
Here are a few images from last week’s Red Sox signing of pitcher, David Price. A busy day here at the park, but it’s exciting to have David on our side!
Here are some images from a night session of high school football games at Fenway Park. High school football during Thanksgiving week is a big tradition in the Northeast, so I’m sure it was a thrill for these kids to be playing at a venue like Fenway.
A little different than the Notre Dame/Boston College game the week before!
Here are some images from the AIG Irish Hurling and Irish Festival at Fenway Park yesterday. I’ve never shot the sport of hurling, so wasn’t sure what to expect. I was pleasantly surprised.
The game is fast paced and high energy. I’m still not sure if I know the rules, but felt good about some of these photos.
That caps off a long, busy weekend of shooting at Fenway.
What a night! Here is a gallery of images from the Shamrock Series Football at Fenway Game between Boston College and Notre Dame. It was the first time football has been played at Fenway Park since 1968.
I was really excited to cover this. I knew it was going to be colorful and high energy, and the night lived up to expectations. The atmosphere was fantastic, and I genuinely had a wonderful time shooting. In my experiences as a photographer, there have been instances while working where everything else happening in life dissappears. You forget about everything that’s going on, and it’s just you and the camera and what’s in front of you. When that happens, it’s bliss, and it happened for me last night. It’s those times that keep you motivated and fresh as a storyteller.
The game was the end product of a lot of hard work by a lot of good people at the Red Sox. Congratulations to everyone involved on a killer event!
This was a perfect way to start my 26th birthday weekend. I’m grateful for all the well-wishes on my birthday today! Thank you to all. It was an awesome year. Here’s to another one.
We’ve got the Irish sport of Hurling coming to Fenway Park this weekend! I know nothing about the sport, but it should be really exciting to shoot.
As a lead up to the game, AIG, the leading sponsor, and the Red Sox hosted a kids clinic at Boston University. Here are a few quick grabs from the clinic.
Sunday marked the close of the 2015 Boston Red Sox campaign at Fenway Park, as the team played the last game of their final home stand in Boston.
It was a day full of farewells, capping off an at times turbulent season full of change within the team and within the organization. In an on-field ceremony, the Red Sox honored longtime President & CEO, Larry Lucchino, who is stepping down at the end of this season after 14 years in that role. It was a simple but beautiful tribute, and a fitting exclamation point to an ownership group that has accomplished a lot of great things together.
Equally bittersweet was a fan tribute to NESN’s Red Sox broadcaster of the last 15 years, Don Orsillo. The announcer received a standing ovation from fans in the park after a video montage was played on the big screen.
These come on top of team manager John Farrell’s cancer diagnosis and former General Manager Ben Cherington’s decision to step down earlier this year. That’s a lot to happen all at once.
I guess it goes to show how quickly things can change, even when it may appear that they’ll stay the same forever. That seemed to be a theme this season around here, and it will be interesting to see the changes that will undoubtedly continue this winter.
This brings my sixth complete season working in Major League Baseball to a close. I put in more hours and worked harder this year than in any previous season. It was exhausting at times, but the new challenges I encountered this season only make me love the job even more. The results on the field weren’t what most of us predicted, but I’m proud of both the quantity and quality of the work I produced documenting the 2015 season. I learned a lot and tried new things. I know not every work place allows the freedom to do that so easily, so I’m grateful for the opportunity.
Now to shift focus onto other work and projects that I’m behind on!
Great season to everyone involved!
We’re really lucky that the Boston Red Sox and Fenway Sports Group organizations are dedicated to utilizing Fenway Park as a venue for great events year round, both baseball and non-baseball related.
This winter, we’ll have several exciting non-baseball events to shoot, and last week, the team announced that extreme skiing and snowboarding would be one of them. Fenway will play host to a Big Air ski and snowboard jump competition. “Big Air At Fenway” will feature a 140-foot high ramp, which is taller than the light towers on top of the Green Monster in left field.
It’s tough to picture it coming together on top of a baseball field, but I’m really excited to shoot this event in February. Here are a few quick photos from the press conference announcement.
