It’s hard to believe, but my ten days of photographing the 2012 US Open are over! I shot a lot of matches throughout the day today, but decided to only post photos from the most important one here.
Andy Roddick lost in four sets to Juan Martin Del Potro, signifying his retirement from professional tennis. It was an emotional afternoon in Arthur Ashe Stadium, and I was thrilled to be on hand to shoot it.
Here are our galleries from Day 10.
I had an amazing experience at the Open this year, and I want to thank the team at usopen.org for making it so special. I added a few solid additions to the portfolio, got to attend some exciting events around the grounds, and shot lots of really good tennis.
I was also very happy to make some wonderful new connections, and, most importantly, to see old friends from many different parts of my life.
Back to Boston this morning!
Here’s a selection of images from a jam packed Day 4 at the 2012 US Open. On the tennis side, I tried to mix up the way I shot my action photos yesterday. I love shooting tennis because there are so many ways to attack it, and I want to make sure I do just that while I’m here. I shot lots from high above, which I really enjoyed and plan to do a lot more as the tournament goes on.
Off the court, it was a bit of a whirlwind day. I was assigned to follow RedFoo from LMFAO as he walked around the grounds, which was entertaining. Here is a link to a gallery with some more of my photos of him. I also shot Andy Roddick’s press conference in which he announced his intention to retire from tennis after this year’s US Open. Here is the video from that presser.
And, finally, here is a link to the rest of our photo galleries from Day 4.
Time for Day 5!
