Local TV

Highlights of matches may be filmed from the concourse level, not from the photo pit. Video of matches cannot be transmitted live. Local TV may shoot around the grounds when escorted by Tournament communications staff. Match video highlights may be available through ATP Media. Complete this form to gain access. 

Photographers

Official Tournament Photographers: Andrew Patron (Head Photographer), Gina Fontana, Juarez Santos & Francois Asal.

Photographers who apply for credentials must have a working assignment from a media outlet and must be shooting with a Pro-level camera or two camera bodies.

Still/video photographers with credentials coded “CA” (court access) will be permitted in the photo pit on the east side of Stadium Court, with priority given to dailies and wire services.

A courtside shooting position is not guaranteed. If the area becomes crowded, it may be necessary to rotate positions, as determined by the media director or the official tournament photographer.

The following rules also apply:

  • Photographers must access the west photo pit by walking against the back wall during changeovers. Return trips must also be made along the back wall.
  • Access to the photo pit can be from either the north or south corral areas.
  • Photographers should not stand in the entrance way to the stadium court when players take the court, other than to gain access to the photo pit.
  • Photographers are to remain in the photo pit before and after matches, and off the court until the tournament-end Awards Ceremony.
    Avoid obstructing TV cameras.
  • Photographers must not speak to players, officials or ball kids at any time during a match. Requests made by the chair umpire are to be complied with immediately. No motordrives allowed before service, and flash equipment may not be used on the court during practice or matches. Strobes may be used for awards photos.
  • The official tournament photographer(s) will have the first photo opportunity during the awards ceremony. All photographers must remain on the opposite side of the net from the awards area.
  • Any photographer not adhering to the rules will be asked to leave.
