I've just returned from London, where I spent the past two weeks working as a photographer and video producer for wimbledon.com, the official tournament website of the Championships Wimbledon. As this was my second year working on the tournament media staff, I wanted to produce a body of work that was unique and different from the work I did there last year.
Where as last year I focused primarily on shooting still photos, this year I decided to shoot lots of video, and aimed my efforts at producing story and scene-setting video pieces for the tournament website and social media channels.
This is a piece I shot and edited of Novak Djokovic, the top ranked tennis player in the world, as he practiced before his semi-final match against Juan Martin Del Potro. I decided to lay down my footage to clips I selected from several of Novak's press conferences that he gave throughout the tournament. If the piece was to be narrated, I thought it best to have it done so by the subject himself.
This was published on wimbledon.com as well as across the tournament's social media outlets on the day of the men's Championship match, which Djokovic ultimately lost to Andy Murray in straight sets.
