Mariners vs Yankees Series – June 10th & 12th, 2014

This past week, New York Yankee shortstop Derek Jeter said goodbye to Seattle. Well, at least in a Yankees uniform. After announcing his retirement, this will be the last time he plays in Seattle (unless the two team meet in the playoffs, fingers crossed!). Yankees fans showed up in busloads. Although this is normal whenever the team plays in Seattle, it was a little different as a majority of the fans were sporting Derek Jeter gear and holding “Goodbye Jeter signs.”

I feel privileged that I had the opportunity to photograph the future hall of famer over the past 4 years while photographing the Seattle Mariners and I wish him luck in his future endeavors.

Below are a few of my favorite images from the two games I covered last week between the Seattle Mariners and New York Yankees including a few extra of Jeter.

Mariners vs Astros – May 22nd, 2014

This MLB baseball season seems like it’s flying by! Before too long, it will be the All-Star break and then the playoffs!

Observing the Seattle Mariners over the past few years while photographing the games, I haven’t noticed the players having as much fun as they are now. Not sure if it’s the presence of a new manager or the red hot Robinson Cano taking over the leadership role, but from what I have seen from my seat in the ball park, the boys are having fun.

Although as I type this, the team is only one game above .500, I get the feeling that the Mariners are about to explode and go on a major hot streak!

Now back to my post. I covered the Mariners vs Astros on May 22nd. Below are a few of my favorite photos from a pretty slow (not much offense) game. Enjoy.

The last photo (below) is a look at my editing setup during a game. I have a laptop plate mounted on a tripod as my desk. A USB 3.0 card reader mounted under the laptop plate via velcro and plugged into my machine, a MacBook Pro Retina 15″. If you have any question of my process during a game, drop a comment below.

Mariners vs Rangers – MLB Baseball

Did I mention that the MLB baseball season has started? Well, it has and I have already covered a few games. Unfortunately a combination of being busy and lazy on the days not working, I haven’t posted a MLB baseball themed blogged. So here is my first, a few of my favorite photos from the Mariners vs Rangers game on April 26th, 2014 in Seattle, WA.
