Say Cheese! It’s Brewers Team Photo Day

Today was Brewers Team Photo Day at Miller Park.

The risers were set up in the infield early this afternoon and Brewers Team Photographer Scott Paulus and his staff were on hand to take the official 2015 photo.

Now, I don’t know about you, but I was never a big fan of “picture day” back in school.

Now imagine that times 100, factoring in getting together all of the players–in uniform–along with coaches and staff….without the added bonus of a free comb. You can only hope everyone is on time and hope that nobody blinks.

Here’s a hyperlapse we took of the “event”:

You may notice a man and his little girl stepping into the shot. That’s Season Seat Holder Bryan Wygert  and his daughter who received the unique opportunity to pose with the Crew:

However, Scott’s the ultimate professional and he’s been doing this for many, many years now. He know what he needs to do to get the guys in, out, and looking great each time.

All fans in attendance on Saturday, September 19 for Fan Appreciation Night will receive a copy of the team photo.

Scooter Gennett Plays in the Dirt

Over the last few days, the #CactusCrew participated in various photo and video shoots to make sure their images are captured for everything from scoreboard and baseball cards to marketing collateral and TV commercials.

The big “Photo Day” was Friday, but over the last few days, the marketing team was on hand, along with folks from CI Design and Brewers Team Photographer Scott Paulus, to capture additional footage for Brewers TV commercials and stills for use in advertising and marketing materials.

One player in particular was really getting into his photo shoot with Scott:

After posing for awhile, Scooter Gennett decided he wanted to make the photos look a little more…um, authentic:

And of course, we had to GIF it:

Photo Day Fun at Maryvale Baseball Park

Today was photo day at Maryvale Baseball Park!

The day starts out earlier than normal as various photographers come in to shoot headshots and posed shots of the players.

Photos were taken by media outlets like the Associated Press, Getty Images and USA Today along with the Brewers team photographer Scott Paulus, our scoreboard folks, MLB Network and Topps baseball cards. Players rotate through the various stations:

In addition, we had fun using the Twitter Mirror, a special Twitter app used by events like the Oscars and the GRAMMYs, which transforms an ordinary tablet into a special selfie station.

We overheard players say “Yes, selfie station!” and “I’m coming back here later,” so we think they had fun… but of course, we’ve also got pictures to prove it:

Brewers Senior Director of Media Relations Mike Vassallo and I also got in the fun:

We stopped Kyle Lohse, a long-time Photo Day veteran, and asked him if he had a minute to give us for some advice on navigating photo day. Here’s what he had to say:

Miller Park Time Lapse

I included this video in my post about our #SeeUApril6 Contest, but I felt like it deserved its own post as well.

Check out this awesome time lapse of the Miller Park game day experience, put together by Scott Paulus, our team photographer:

Ah, doesn’t that just make you long for summer? The good news is–each day we’re getting one day closer to Opening Day and the fun and excitement that we know will last all summer long.

Brewers Pet Calendars Have Arrived!

If you’ll recall, earlier this season, we were working with the Brewers Wives and the Wisconsin Humane Society to create a Brewers Pet Calendar, featuring photos of the players and coaches with their pets and/or animals from the Wisconsin Humane Society. We also held a contest where one winner and her dog were selected to appear in the calendar (congrats again, Jessica!)

Well, the calendars have arrived and are now available at the Brewers Team Store by Majestic at Miller Park.

Let me just say–they turned out great! All of the photos were taken by our team photographer, Scott Paulus.

Brewers Pet Calendar

 

This is an 18-month calendar, starting with September of 2014, which means you don’t have to wait until the New Year to display it.

They are $14.95 with proceeds benefiting the Wisconsin Humane Society.

Brewers Team Photo Day Leads to #BrewersTeamSelfie

Today was Brewers Team Photo Day at Miller Park.

Brewers Photo Day

 

The risers were set up in the infield early this afternoon and Brewers Team Photographer Scott Paulus and his staff were on hand to take the official 2014 photo.

Now, I don’t know about you, but I was never a big fan of “picture day” back in school.

Now imagine that times 100, factoring in getting together all of the players–in uniform–along with coaches and staff….without the added bonus of a free comb. You can only hope everyone is on time and hope that nobody blinks.

Add in guys making funny faces, bunny ears and the lot….

…and Carlos Gomez whipping out his cell phone to take a selfie in the middle of it:

#Selfie jajajaja #PhotoDay

A photo posted by Carlos Gomez (@realcarlosgomez) on

and it seems like we could all be in for a long day.

However, Scott’s the ultimate professional and he’s been doing this for many, many years now. He know what he needs to do to get the guys in, out, and looking great each time.

But what happened today when Scott handed over his camera to Carlos Gomez after the official photo was taken?

#BrewersTeamSelfie, that’s what.

Brewers Team Selfie

Here’s what that looked like from my point of view, as it was happening:

And Carlos kept clicking away. He cut off some guys in this one, but it’s too good not to share.

Ladies and gentlemen, your 2014 Milwaukee Brewers!

I may be slightly biased, but I think this photo beats Ellen’s any day.

Congratulations to Jessica Wagner, Winner of the Brewers Pet Calendar Photo Contest!

As we told you earlier this month, we’re creating a Brewers Pet Calendar, featuring photos of the players and coaches with their pets and/or animals from the Wisconsin Humane Society, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the organization.

We also held a contest for one lucky fan and his/her dog to be included in the calendar alongside Hank.

And today, Jessica Wagner and her yellow lab, Ruger, from Wausau joined Mark Reynolds, Logan Schafer and Hank this afternoon for a photo shoot by Brewers photographer Scott Paulus:

Behind the Scenes at the Brewers Pet Calendar Photo Shoot

Last week, we let the “cat out of the bag” that we’re creating a Brewers Pet Calendar, featuring photos of the players and coaches with their pets and/or animals from the Wisconsin Humane Society, with a portion of the proceeds benefiting the organization.

Today, we held the first photo shoot for the piece, which is due out later this season, and we thought we’d share a few fun photos with you. All photos for the calendar will be taken by Brewers photographer Scott Paulus[Note: All of the dogs at today’s photo shoot are dogs that are currently up for adoption at the Wisconsin Humane Society.]

We also held a contest for one lucky fan and his/her dog to be included in the calendar alongside Hank. Stay tuned for more details on the winner and when the finished piece will be for sale.

Cheers!

That’s His Ticket!

Today, I caught up with one of our first winners in our FanTastic 40 promotion: Mark Stinebrink from Lake Geneva, WI.

If you don’t know Mark, you will soon. That’s because, for one game during the 2013 season, Mark’s photo is going to be printed on a Brewers season ticket!

Mark Stinebrink

Mark showed up at our offices this afternoon ready for the shoot. He was greeted with quite the entourage– Jeff Harding, our Senior Graphic Designer, who will be designing the tickets; Brittany Luznicky, our Marketing & Promotions Coordinator was on hand to supply props (a cap, a bat, etc.); Jason Massopust, his Account Executive; Billy Friess, Senior Director of Ticket Sales, and me, covering the shoot for the blog, as we escorted him to his shoot with Scott Paulus, our team photographer

Mark has been a Season Seat Holder on his own since 1998 and has been coming to games well before that. His seats are on the Field Level near the Visitors’ dugout..

The shoot lasted about 20 minutes and Mark was a great sport. It was great to see this prize going to such a loyal Brewers fan.

“I think this is a really neat prize,” he said. “Everyone says, how come you are so lucky? I say, ‘I’m not lucky, I’m just blessed.'” 

Note: I've deliberately obscured Mark's face here. You're just going to have to wait until Sunday, July 21, 2013 the date Mark's chosen to have his image appear on his very own season ticket!

Note: I’ve deliberately obscured Mark’s face here. You’re just going to have to wait until Sunday, July 21, 2013 the date Mark’s chosen to have his image appear on his very own season ticket!

Season Seat Holders can look forward to seeing Mark’s finished ticket when their tickets arrive in late March. He’s chosen Sunday, July 21 as the date that he would like his image to appear on the ticket. That date, we’ll be hosting the Miami Marlins at 1:10pm.

Mark said he picked that date because that was a convenient date for his family and friends to come out and celebrate together.

While we know that July 21 is too early to be a date that the Brewers might do something like clinch the division (that’s what happened on the date the 2011 winner chose!), with baseball, you never know what might happen, so let’s hope that ticket is another keepsake for our fans! I know it will be for at least one no matter what.

And the FanTastic 40 promotion–40 Days, 40 drawings, 40 unique prizes and experiences, all for our Season Seat Holders–is just beginning!  

There’s still time to get in the game and, the sooner you get in, the more scoring opportunities you’ll have.  So visit brewers.com/fan40 for more information, including complete rules and regulations!

That’s His Ticket!

Today, I caught up with one of our first winners in our FanTastic 40 promotion: Bob Sarsfield.

If you don’t know Bob, you will soon. That’s because, for one game during the 2012 season, Bob’s photo is going to be printed on a Brewers season ticket!

Bob showed up at our offices this afternoon ready for the shoot. He was greeted with quite the entourage– Jeff
Harding, our Senior Graphic Designer
, who will be designing the tickets; Kelly Candotti, our Marketing & Promotions Coordinator was on hand to supply props (a cap, a bat, etc.); Jason Massopust, his Account Executive; Billy Friess, Senior Director of Ticket Sales, me, covering the shoot for the blog, and cameras from several local television stations–as we escorted him to his shoot with Scott Paulus, our team photographer

Bob has been a Season Seat Holder on his own since 1989, but he has been a fan and had tickets with friends long before that. In fact, since the Brewers have been in Milwaukee, Bob has only missed one Opening Day: Tuesday, April 10, 1973. The reason he remembers it so clearly is because  April 10 is his birthday, and that year, the game against the Boston Red Sox was snowed out, the result of a snowstorm of 13 inches the night prior. In fact, the snowstorm was so bad that the team didn’t end up opening their season at home until that Friday, April 13, winning 2-0 over the Baltimore Orioles.

You never know what might happen when you go to a baseball game and Bob’s witnessed many other memorable moments over the years. Some of those highlights include:

    • Rickey Henderson breaking Lou Brock’s single-season stolen base record at County Stadium on August 27, 1982
    • Nolan Ryan’s 300th win at County Stadium on July 31, 1990
    • Robin Yount’s 3000th hit at County Stadium on September 9, 1992
    • Trevor Hoffman’s 600th save at Miller Park on September 7, 2010
    • The Brewers clinching their first-ever National League Central Division Title on September 23, 2011 at Miller Park
    • And much, much more!

Note: I've deliberately obscured Bob's face here. You're just going to have to wait until Sunday, July 15, 2012, the date Bob's chosen to have his image appear on his very own season ticket!

The shoot lasted about 25 minutes and Bob was a great sport. It was great to see this prize going to such a loyal Brewers fan.

“I’m very excited, this was completely out of the blue,” he said.

Season Seat Holders can look forward to seeing Bob’s finished ticket when their tickets arrive in late March. He’s chosen Sunday, July 15 as the date that he would like his image to appear on the ticket. That date, we’ll be hosting the Pittsburgh Pirates at 1:10pm.

Bob said he picked that date because it is his sister’s birthday and Jennie’s a big Brewers fan, just like him.

While we know that July 15 is too early to be a date that the Brewers might do something like clinch the division (that’s what happened on the date last year’s winner chose!), with baseball, you never know what might happen, so let’s hope that ticket is another keepsake for our fans! I know it will be for at least one no matter what.

And the FanTastic 40 promotion–40 Days, 40 drawings, 40 unique prizes and experiences, all for our Season Seat Holders–is just beginning!  

There’s still time to get in the game and, the sooner you get in, the more scoring opportunities you’ll have.  So visit brewers.com/fan40 for more information, including complete rules and regulations!
