  • I thought that two of the things that make for a really good photograph are perspective

  • and emotion.

  • So as a photographer you have the capabilities of freezing action and offering the viewer

  • a perspective that they're not able to get with their own eye.

  • And that's sort of 80 percent of the battle here as a baseball photographer. Making these

  • really interesting photographs that people when they see them they say, "Wow! You know,

  • I saw that play on TV, but that is so cool. I didn't see it like that."

  • And the other thing is emotion. Sports brings out emotion in people on both ends of the

  • spectrum and you have to be there to sort of capture those raw moments that happen.

  • Which when they do happen they really make for a more impactful photograph.

  • This is a great angle to get, the head-on angle. That's why we shoot here just for the

  • first inning and try to get this look before we go back further.

  • My strategy when it comes to shooting a baseball game is to try and anticipate. You can't really

  • follow the ball because it's moving too fast. So if you want to get something like a diving

  • catch you really have to be trained on the fielder already hoping that a pull hitter

  • is gonna to hit it to that player.

  • Often times you'll be on the third baseman and the shortstop will make a diving catch

  • and it's very frustrating but you just have to take that chance.

  • Game days here at Fenway often times are a bit of a whirlwind. A lot of the players have

  • charities and they have groups coming here.

  • Senator Brown was here the other day and I wanted to make sure we had nice photos of

  • him throwing out the first pitch, meeting the players, doing all that stuff because

  • people will be looking for those photos.

  • Basically I'm gonna have you stand right here on those two black dots.

  • Mmm-hmm.

  • Give you one of the masks. Shoot it up. Shoot up.

  • As everyone knows David Ortiz has a ton of personality.

  • We ended up making these masks that had a whole bunch of different expressions of David

  • Ortiz's face.

  • He has such a great sense of humor that he really had a lot of fun.

  • I have just one photo of him sort of peeking out from the mask. It's a very genuine smile

  • and it's nice to be able to show the viewer through that one single image his personality

  • and sort of how he is in real life.

  • And it's really nice to have this 99 year-old baseball park as your canvas because there's

  • a lot of different places and different historical elements here.

  • Forget about the baseball game. The park itself makes for a very interesting subject for a

  • photographer.

  • I particularly love the energy during games here. Especially as the season starts to go

  • on and on, the Red Sox are on the hunt, and there's a certain buzz in the air that I really

  • enjoy. It really keeps me going.
