The shoot took place at Yankee Stadium where I had access to the field and players dugout. I actually haddn’t worked in Yankee stadium since the 2009 World Series where I made a fun time-lapse.
As with all my portraits, my goal is to get as much variety as possible, so I arrived early with my assistant in order to find numerous options. As it turned out, Ron got a bit delated, so we ended up having some time to kill, all alone, while hanging out in the dugout and field. It was definitely a cool experience to be by ourselves in such a famous stadium.
Ron showed up for the shot and was a super nice and talkative. He was willing to spend as much time and pose however we wanted him. I really enjoyed his company during the shoot as he kept it interesting with all his stories from his career.
Another exciting shoot for a great client and awesome editors!
