Here are photos from my final day of the 2016 Connecticut Open. The day concluded with the men’s legends event, which featured Connecticut local and former top 10 player, James Blake, and John McEnroe. It’s always great to work with these guys.
Now I’m back in Boston for more Red Sox baseball. I’m sad to be missing the final weekend in New Haven, but had a great time shooting for a great team full of very talented, hardworking individuals.
Until next time.
Here is a gallery of all the action yesterday at the BNP Paribas Open. These are some selects from Kids Day, as well as the McEnroe Challenge for charity.
More to come!
I’ve returned to beautiful, sunny Palm Springs, California, where I’m here to shoot my third BNP Paribas Open tennis tournament. After a long, tough winter in Boston, naturally I’m thrilled to be out here shooting tennis in the sunshine for a few weeks.
This is one of the best tournaments on tour, so I’m excited to get some really good photo and video coverage for the tournament website, social media channels, and marketing materials.
I’m here a week before the tournament starts to cover several things happening, including the second annual John McEnroe Challenge for Charity, which brings former tennis stars and current players together for a night of exhibition matches to raise money for various charities. Last night was the draw ceremony and VIP reception for the event, so I’ve included a few pictures from that. John McEnroe was of course in the house, along with James Blake, Andy Roddick, Tracy Austin, Lindsay Davenport, Rick Leach, Coco Vandeweghe, and others.
I’ll be sure to post updates daily as the tournament goes on!
Here’s a selection of photos from yesterday’s tennis action, as well as the Connecticut Open Legend’s Event with former stars Andy Roddick and James Blake.

Today I headed to the Yale University Tennis Center in New Haven, Connecticut to shoot the annual Free Tennis Lesson in advance of the upcoming New Haven Open tournament. This year, the guest was recently retired American pro, James Blake, who participated in a clinic with several hundred kids from local area schools. I was able to get lots of good footage and stills throughout the day, which I’ve posted here. The video is a quick recap package produced several hours after the event concluded, and the stills were used for the tournament’s Facebook and Instagram accounts. It’s always a pleasure to have such great access to athletes, especially when they are as gracious and well-spoken as James is.
