The Boston Red Sox returned to Fenway Park yesterday for their 2019 home opener against the Toronto Blue Jays. Before the game, players, coaches, and team staff received their 2018 World Series championship rings. Members of the Super Bowl champion New England Patriots were also in attendance for the ceremony.
It was an awesome day to be a part of despite not ideal weather conditions and an ugly game. We’re lucky to be able to do what we do and call it work.
Here’s a gallery of my work from yesterday’s Red Sox 2019 Opening Day game against the Seattle Mariners at T-Mobile Park. A tough one for us, but still a fun day of shooting at a great ballpark in a beautiful city! I’m headed back to Boston now to prepare for our home opener at Fenway next week.
I’m en route back to Boston from Tampa, so I wanted to get these photos from yesterday’s Opening Day out before things get too crazy. It was a wild game yesterday that didn’t go the Red Sox way, but it was fun to shoot nonetheless.
Boston welcomed their beloved Red Sox to a warm return yesterday in a festive Opening Day at Fenway Park. Pre-game ceremonies included a special ceremonial first pitch by four Boston sports legends – Bobby Orr of the Boston Bruins, Ty Law of the New England Patriots, Bill Russell of the Boston Celtics, and David Ortiz of the Boston Red Sox. In an emotional moment, Ortiz was surprised by his daughter, Alex, who sang the National Anthem before the game. Although the Sox were unable to pull out a win against the undefeated Baltimore Orioles, the day marked the start of the final campaign for Big Papi, and the beginning of what should be an exciting season.
It’s always a long day for us. We didn’t get much cooperation from the weather for our annual sunrise photo, but it was still a lot of fun to be back at it. There will be a ton of content to come from this season!
Above are several of the multimedia and video pieces I created for the Boston Red Sox through the first month of the 2015 season.
Video is more important than ever, so although we’re in the photography department, we’ve been producing multimedia projects like these as much as possible. Most of them are very quick pieces, although we hope to do some longer form work too as the season goes on.
It’s hard to believe time has passed so quickly, but yesterday marked the start of my fourth season working as a photographer in Major League Baseball.
I always love Opening Day, and yesterday at Fenway Park was no exception. We caught a break from the freezing cold that we’ve had up here in Boston, and had a beautiful, sunny, warm afternoon to work in. That, along with all the other familiar sights and sounds that make baseball so perfect, was rejuvenating to say the least.
It made for a long day, beginning with a 5:00 A.M. arrival at the ballpark and ending with night class and a few hours of editing in the lab at Boston University, but a great day nonetheless.
Here are some images I made from the pre-game ceremonies and the general scene around Fenway. I threw in a bit of orange and black as well.
It was fantastic to see all the Boston photographers back in the same place, and a pleasure to meet some new ones. Plus, the Red Sox took on my hometown heroes, the Baltimore Orioles.
My two favorite teams and a fresh start. A dream come true for this guy.
