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 are some images from Day 6 at the Connecticut Open. Not a lot of time to post today!
Not a lot of time to post, but here are the highlights from Day 4 at the Connecticut Open.
Here are photos from Day 6 out here in Indian Wells! We had all the big names on court yesterday, capped off by a tight three set win from Rafael Nadal. Another busy one today.
Here are the last images of an exciting week of tennis at the Connecticut Open at Yale University. Petra Kvitova continued her domination in New Haven, winning her second title in three finals appearances here.
It’s always interesting to think about these tournaments after they’re complete. Each one has it’s own personality, quirks, and characters, and they’re all so different from each other. This one has a small tournament feel but with the star power and excitement of a bigger tournament, which I think is quite a nice balance.
From a photo standpoint, it was essentially nonstop shooting for me over the last nine days. By now, I’ve learned that as the official tournament photographer, success is just as much about time management and good planning each day as it is about taking good pictures. It’s a responsibility that can be hectic at times, but one that I enjoy immensely.
As usual, the experience is only as good as the people you work with, and I’m grateful to have such great people to partner with. Our web and digital team of Matt Van Tuinen, Stephen Villatoro, Nick McCarvel, Lauren Foley, and Craig Gabriel is among the best in the business. I’m also thankful to tournament director Anne Worcester and the rest of the tournament staff for their efforts and for giving me the opportunity to shoot.
Now I’m back in Boston to finish out the 2014 Red Sox season. It goes on!
We’re winding down here in New Haven. Here are a few selects from yesterday’s semi-finals action. Last day today!
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.
Here are some photos from day five at the 2014 Connecticut Open, during which we saw defending tournament champion and world number two Simona Halep ousted in the first round by Magdalena Rybarikova.
In tennis, you just never know!
Things are getting exciting around here at the grounds of the All England Club, as we’ve reached finals weekend. Today, I was tasked with shooting practice sessions for all four singles finalists in the morning. Above are a few scenes from those practices.
I was also assigned to get down to Centre Court for the trophy presentations following the championship match between Eugenie Bouchard and Petra Kvitova. With a bit of luck, I was able to get on court for match point, and happened to be positioned with a clean view of Kvitova’s reaction. These are my favorites from the end of the match. It’s always a thrill to witness special moments like these.
We’re down to the final two players on the women’s side, as Petra Kvitova and Eugenie Bouchard have advanced to the finals of this year’s Wimbledon. I was lucky enough to be on Centre Court to shoot both semi-final matches yesterday. It really is a beautiful court, and I loved every minute of being out there.
These are the highlights from those two matches, as well as a few other scenes from throughout the day.
