Here are a few from yesterday. It was a slow day relatively, so I don’t have too much to show from it, but here are a few frames.
Yesterday was another full day of tennis in Indian Wells. Roger Federer wiped Rafael Nadal off the court. It’s always a fun match up to shoot.
Another big day of tennis yesterday. Here are a few favorites from the day.
Another day of tennis. Here are some pics.
Here are some images from my third day out here at Indian Wells. A decent, very hot, day of shooting.
Here are some photos from my second day out at the 2017 BNP Paribas Open.
I’m back in Indian Wells, California, to shoot my fifth BNP Paribas Open tennis tournament. It’s been a whirlwind journey getting here, coming straight from almost a month at Red Sox Spring Training. I’m feeling tired, but glad to be here to shoot. Here’s a few from the first day. Nothing great. Just getting warmed up.
Here are my photos from the men’s and women’s singles finals matches on Sunday in Indian Wells. On the women’s side, Victoria Azarenka pulled out an upset over World No. 1 Serena Williams, while Novak Djokovic cruised easily to beat Canadian, Milos Raonic.
And with that, the 2016 BNP Paribas Open is over. It’s hard to believe this is the fourth straight year that I’ve shot this amazing tournament. Each year, the event gets bigger, more innovative, and more progressive. And lucky for me, the team that I get to be a part of does to. When I started in 2013, there were just five of us on our media team. It has now grown to over 20, and is poised to get bigger in years to come. What we have now is an elite team of writers, photographers, videographers, social media experts, and public relations specialists, all bringing expertise from different professions and different places. It’s pretty special, and it makes the long hours, endless flights of stairs, and countless hours in the 90 plus degree sun with heavy photo equipment all worth it. I’m lucky and thankful to be a part of something like that.
I also believe that in this business, it’s good practice to be as diverse as possible. It’s refreshing to shoot special events like this. For me, it gives me a breather from shooting baseball, but also always leaving me feeling re-energized creatively, and ready to bring that energy back to my work here at the Boston Red Sox. I think events like these balance themselves out well with my career in baseball, and I’m lucky to be able to experience both.
A big congratulations and thank you to everyone I got to work with in Indian Wells. By this point, there are too many people to thank individually. That’s a good problem to have. You all know who you are.
After three weeks at Red Sox Spring Training followed immediately by ten hard days shooting tennis in the desert, I am physically exhausted. I need to relax and regroup over the next few days. Then I’ll get fired up for the start of another season at Fenway Park. It’s good to be busy!
Thanks for following!
