It was another busy one out at the Championships Wimbledon today, but an exciting one to say the least.
I was able to get out early in the morning and roam the grounds while they were still empty. It’s so easy to get caught up in the stress and hustle and bustle of the media workroom and forget what a beautiful place the All England Club really is. Walking around and shooting by myself before the crowds got in was therapeutic, and definitely put me in the right mindset for the rest of the day.
The photos above are a mix of what I shot throughout the day, including a visit by the Golden Bear himself, Jack Nicklaus.
Tomorrow I’ll be shooting video, which I’ve done periodically throughout this tournament. I plan to post all my video work from this year’s Wimbledon to the blog when I have a better internet connection and some more time. Until tomorrow!
I was asked to photograph the Boston leg of the 2012 Powershares Tennis Tour, which brings former World No. 1 tennis players together on the same court in cities across the country.
In attendance yesterday were Pete Sampras, John McEnroe, Ivan Lendl, and Jim Courier, who share 33 grand slam titles between themselves.
A delay in the tennis court surface’s arrival made for a very long night, but as a tennis fan, this was a fun event to shoot. It’s not every day that you get to hang with the best tennis players of all time.
