What's it like to be responsible for the photo content for a major league franchise and your office is Fenway Park? Meet Billie Weiss of the Boston Red Sox
Who doesn't love sports photography? This week on The Wormcast I'm joined by the ultra talented Billie Weiss, the Sr. Manager of Photography for the Boston Red Sox. We chat about an area of sports media of great artistic and commercial value, but is frankly, pardon the pun, under exposed. A really fun conversation about one of the most creative parts of the sports media ecosystem. Enjoy!
