The 2022 Major League Baseball regular season has come to a close. The Red Sox played their final game of the year yesterday in a rainy cold Fenway. The year ended on a high note with a win and series sweep, and several emotional moments after a frustrating year on the field.
This wraps my eleventh season with the Boston Red Sox. I’ll have more to say later, but I’m feeling proud of the work our team was able to do despite challenging circumstances this year. We press on!
Here is a recap from this year’s Major League Baseball All-Star Game at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. I was lucky to be able to travel with the three Red Sox representatives – Rafael Devers, Xander Bogaerts, and J.D. Martinez – to document their experience over All-Star week. Before the game, I shot some portraits with J.D. in an old theatre to represent the Hollywood theme of the week.
It was fun to shoot those on film for a change, which sparked a desire to start working with film more again!
I recently spent a rare Spring Training off-day with Boston Red Sox big bat, J.D. Martinez, to shoot this lifestyle video piece. J.D. drove from Fort Myers to Clearwater to begin the customization process on his new boat with the crew at Costa Custom Boats. In the afternoon, we ventured to a tree farm, where J.D. selected a new banyan tree, which will ultimately be planted at his Florida residence.
It was fun to shoot video and show a bit of humanity to the man they call J.D.!
Another win tonight in the second to last home game of the season. I took a little stroll outside to take in the strange emptiness during game time. It’s such a stark contrast to the usual hustle in the neighborhood during game time. It’s a really weird time to be working.
