Sharing new healthcare photography work shot for medical software company MatrixCare by ResMed. Our crew travelled to Missouri earlier this summer to document MatrixCare software in action and capture lifestyle and hero shots at Luther Manor Retirement & Nursing Center and Clark County Nursing Home.
A big thanks to my friends at Path-8 Productions, who produced the shoot and associated videos for MatrixCare, for including me on their shoot.
I teamed up with NBC Sports for portrait work for their Sunday Night Football broadcast several weeks ago as quarterback Tom Brady returned to Gillette Stadium for the first time as a member of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. We roamed the parking lots in Foxboro in search of the full array of fan reaction in anticipation of Brady’s return. Above are a few of the portraits I shot, as well as the two segments that aired live on NBC’s broadcast with Al Michaels, Cris Collinsworth, and Michele Tafoya during the game.
A big thanks to the team at NBC for having me shoot these.
Here is some recent work at Boston College for their 2021 Men’s and Women’s basketball teams. These two looks were shot simultaneously on two separate lighting setups with six lights used in total. The clean white look offers a simple portrait that can stand alone as an image or be used for graphic cutouts, and the maroon and gold setups provide a secondary creative option.
Thanks to BC athletics for having me shoot these.
The Houston Astros won game 6 of the American League Championship Series, clinching a trip to the World Series and ending the 2021 season for the Boston Red Sox. Above are the images of both celebration and defeat from the game in Houston.
Although it was tough to see this magical postseason run come up just short of a chance in the World Series, this was a fantastic season and a wonderful team to cover. Few picked the Red Sox as a championship caliber team at the beginning of the year, but with the ready and steady presence of manager Alex Cora at the helm and great production and personality from the team members, they were able to accomplish big results under less than probable odds.
For me, that wraps up my tenth season with the Boston Red Sox and twelfth in Major League Baseball. Hard to believe that marks a full decade of covering this franchise and historic ballpark. It’s a privilege to be able to call that work, and I feel lucky to do it every day. It’s been a jam-packed 10 years, with many trips like this to the postseason, two World Series championships, the 100th anniversary of Fenway Park, the retirement of David Ortiz, and lots of down moments in between too.
The past two years have been a challenge unlike any other. The global pandemic completely shifted the way we do everything, and each day and week as it relates to operations and routine have been unpredictable, tumultuous, and unsettling. We’ve endured layoffs, restrictions on access, protocols and testing, moving office locations, and more. It’s hasn’t been easy, but still, I am proud of myself and our team for finding a way, figuring it out, and grinding through it. I am hopeful and optimistic that the end of this season closes a two-year chapter of difficulty, and we start fresh and stronger than before in 2022.
I won’t use these challenges as a direct excuse, but art-wise, it wasn’t my strongest year. There is some work I’m proud of, but I expect a bounce back next year with a renewed focus and updated approach to how we cover and market this team. Thank you for following along all season! I hope you enjoyed the journey as much as I did.
I am looking forward to a great offseason and some downtime from baseball to catch up on other client work and spend time with family and friends. As always, more to come soon.
A tough one for the Sox as they drop game four of the ALCS. Before the game, singer Calum Scott threw out the ceremonial first pitch.
We roll back to Fenway for games 3,4, and 5 of the ALCS. I got a chance to take the drone up early morning to catch a nice sunrise. Before the game, former Red Sox closer Jonathan Papelbon threw out the ceremonial first pitch. Red Sox got the W on a great night offensively.
Game two is in the books, a dub for us. It was nice to be able to shoot some more features and quiet moments before the game. Typically, the first games of each playoff series is too busy to get this type of imagery, as you are preoccupied getting spots setup and getting a lay of the land. That sets you up for game 2 though, which then feels routine, and routine leads to better art.
On to the ALCS, and back in Houston – a place I have become very familiar with over the years after many trips here for postseason runs. Always an intimidating place to play, but a great baseball atmosphere. Here are some selects from Game 1 – an Astros win.
It’s a special bunch! Against most of the projections and odds at the beginning of the year, the Sox defeated the Tampa Bay Rays again in game four of the American League Division Series. With the victory, they clinch the series win and move on to the American League Championship Series to face the Houston Astros.
I have been on several playoff runs in my time here, each with their own special merits and qualities. This one is no exception. Hard to explain the magic this team has found!
A lot of twists and turns as the Red Sox pulled out a victory in game two of the ALDS at Tropicana Field.
