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!

The Red Sox (finally) ended their game last night against the New York Yankees in the bottom of the 11th inning around 1am EST thanks to Mike Napoli. This was their second walk-off win at home in a month and their 9th this season! It’s interesting every season to see the trends in celebration at home plate, with this game ending in a helmet throw and a ripped up #12 jersey.

I successfully made the 13 hour drive to Boston from Pittsburgh with all of my belongings on a 17 foot U-Haul that was also towing my car. Phew! Glad that’s over with…

After spending a day in NYC filling out some paperwork to officially become a member of the Getty team and visiting with college friends and fellow photographers, Coty Tarr, Ashlee Gray, and Danielle Anderson, I took the Amtrak back to Boston to start my first assignment – Yankees vs Red Sox.

Arguably the biggest rivalry in sports, the same series in New York City was my first as an intern with Getty Images/Sport in 2009, so it was only fitting that it was also my first series as a staff photographer Getty. I had a blast covering two out of the four games in the series – Friday and Sunday. It was really great to spend some time and meet the local photographers but just as great to catch up with the shooters from New York City who I haven’t seen in a few years.

Here are some images of mine from my first series of many at the historical Fenway Park. I’m also quite proud to say that I am part of the Getty Images team and I hope to be here for quite some time!

Enjoy!
