Team photo day is done and done again this year! Earlier today, our full roster of players and coaches came through our set to pose for portraits ahead of the 2020 season. This day serves as our opportunity to gather the visual assets we need to carry us through across multiple platforms throughout the season.
Black, white, and red all over was our move this year! Our incredible team designers Marissa McClain and Nick Sciarratta designed this abstract Fenway Park blueprint set with a dramatic color scheme for the players to pose in. As a last minute addition, we threw in some black plexiglass on the ground to add some dimension to the room we created out of the two backdrops. This look had it’s challenges, but I’m proud of our team for putting in the work and trial runs necessary to execute it well. Props to Maddie Malhotra, our staff photographer, for shooting a perfect white seamless set and putting together this fresh looking blog post of our day.
A huge thanks to the players and coaches for their time, and to everyone in our Creative Services and Media Relations teams for making it happen!
Walk-off! It feels like finally this year we got our first real, definitive walk-off last night, as Christian Vazquez hit the game-winning two run home run to cap a 5-1 come from behind win. That’s more like what we’re used to!
Here were some images from the end as well as the rest of the game.
A bit late on this one. In this inter league game against the Colorado Rockies, I witnessed one of the most impressive, historic pitching performances I’ll ever see. Chris Sale struck out 17 batters over 7 innings. It was unbelievable.
Unfortunately it wasn’t enough to get the job done on a Red Sox win, but I feel lucky to be able to have witnessed such a feat.
My first trip to the White House! What an honor to be able to join members of the Red Sox as they were officially recognized by the White House for their historic 2018 World Series championship season. This was a crazy, nonstop day but one that I won’t forget. Being inside the White House and having access to shoot in such a historic place was true privilege, and it was fun to watch our players, coaches, and staff interact with the spaces around the grounds and with President Donald Trump. I am putting any sort of politics aside for this one, and just tried to make impactful images of the Red Sox on this special day.
Before the White House, players visited patients and staff at Walter Reed National Military Center hospital.
