Well, I’m a bit more than a month back into the freelance world and thought it was time to throw an update of recent work together to show that I wasn’t just sitting on my butt at home the last few weeks.

Anyways, here are 20 of my favorite frames from the months of July and August. Enjoy!

June was a pretty slow yet diverse month, photographically, for me as I was transitioning a lot of things including moving myself from Brighton to Chelsea (glad to be out of that neighborhood!)

But now that I’m somewhat settled into my new place and my new position as a freelance photographer in Boston, I thought I’d throw together ten of my favorite images from the month of June. Enjoy!

Here’s my second installment of ‘Pictures of the Month’. This month I started a personal project, photographing some of baseball’s biggest stars and interesting athletes, before batting practice even gets started. I’ve never been much of a portrait photographer but it’s a skill that is important to me and something I need to work on. So I suppose you could say this is the best and easiest way for me to quickly learn how to direct and interact with portrait subjects on the fly – given about a minute with each player.

So here are a few of those portraits along with some of my favorite images from May – enjoy!

Hey All,

I’ve decided to start a blog post at the beginning of every month with some of my favorite sports images from the previous month. This should make growing as a photographer a bit easier to see things on a monthly basis instead of only looking back at the end of every year. I think it can also help prevent your daily body of work from becoming stale, especially when covering the same venue almost every day, by seeing exactly what it is that you have and haven’t shot and maybe how you can make those first attempts at photos better the second time around.

I hope to get as many opinions on my work from as many photographers as possible, regardless of their genre. So please feel free to comment on the blog, Facebook, Twitter, or send me an email (jared@wickphotography.com)!

With this blog post I’m also unveiling a new redesign of my website that was done by my good friend Joel Hawksley. I also welcome everyone to take a look around and give me your feedback – good or bad!

This month in particular, April, was filled with a lot of Red Sox baseball and Bruins hockey with a small race sprinkled in. Enjoy!
