The all-access
reveals how one of the most storied teams in sports uses
Libris to capture history-making moments on the field and share content
with their fans as games unfold. Get behind-the-scenes insights from Red
Sox Manager of Photography Billie Weiss and Kelsey Doherty, Manager of
Digital Media, whose instant access to photos has changed the game for
the team’s social media coverage.

“The Boston Red Sox understand the importance of capturing iconic
moments to connect with their dynamic fan base,” says Andrew Fingerman,
CEO of PhotoShelter. “Libris has helped to streamline this process by
providing their creative and media teams with instantaneous access to
photos and videos in order to maximize social engagement. We’re proud to
work with such a leading force in baseball.”

The Boston Red Sox photographers use a real-time workflow to send images
from the camera straight to Libris and into the hands of their graphic
designers and social media team. The best photos of the game are then
posted on social media within minutes for fans to engage with and share.

With vocal support for visual storytelling from the organization’s
leaders, Weiss has received a level of behind-the-scenes access that
allows his team to go beyond game action, showcasing the unique
personalities of the team that fans love to see.

“From a top-down standpoint this organization really embraces imagery
and embraces photography, and they invest in the work that we do,” says
Weiss. “We’re very thankful that we have people in our corner here that
support and push along the things we’re trying to do.”
