Here is a gallery of photos from the second annual Boston Red Sox Winter Weekend, held at Foxwoods Resort & Casino in Connecticut. The weekend gives fans the chance to meet the players, receive autographs, listen to panel discussions, and get in the baseball frame of mind ahead of Spring Training. In essence, it’s a Fan Fest.
This year proved just as tough to shoot as last year. Aesthetically, the yellow lights and patterned carpets of the casino make it difficult to make a picture that says “baseball.” We made the best of what we had, though, and there were a few moments that worked decently well.
The weekend served as a reminder that Spring Training is just around the corner. 24 days until I report to Florida! Thinking warmer thoughts.
Above is a gallery of photos from the grand opening party for a newly constructed wing in one of Boston’s most hip hotels, the Hotel Commonwealth. I was asked to cover the event for the hotel.
I was there early to shoot some decor shots of the new spaces. The $50 million addition includes 96 new hotel rooms, an outdoor terrace, and 6,000 square feet of event space. All of it looks fantastic.
It was a great party, too. Red Sox legend Jim Rice was in attendance for photo ops with guests, and the Dropkick Murphy’s performed a high-energy set of music. I’m looking forward to shooting more at the Commonwealth, the official hotel of the Red Sox!
Here are photos from the 40-year anniversary and reunion of the 1975 Boston Red Sox team.
I’m a week late to post these, but I wanted to make sure that I didn’t forget about them. I obviously wasn’t around for the 1975 World Series run, but I understand the significance of it, and know that it was and continues to be a big deal to a lot of people.
It’s neat to be up close to so many heroes of the past – Tiant, Fisk, Yastrzemski, and Rice to name a few. Shooting things like this remind me that baseball, and sport in general, is timeless.
A great game by center fielder Mookie Betts and a Red Sox victory helped make for a great night.
I’ve been busy over the last several weeks out on the road with Red Sox players, coaches, and personnel, who have been making World Series trophy visits as part of the Red Sox Holiday Caravan to various locations throughout New England.
It’s been lots of fun to follow the trophies around and to document the guys as they do their part to spread some cheer this holiday season. These are the highlights from some of those visits, as well as from Christmas at Fenway last weekend.
