StadiumPage.com - About Us



About StadiumPage.com
StadiumPage.com was founded in 1998 as a place for me to keep my pictures of the five ballparks I had been to at that point. The site has steadily grown since then and I have now been to games at 36 major league stadiums including all 30 current parks. I also maintain pages with pictures of former ballpark sites, construction, and demolition. From the start we also maintained a section with ballpark concepts, models, renderings, and drawings. In 2006, we began taking photos of the construction of the new Mets and Yankees parks. With the help of dozens of site readers, we now have a fairly comprehensive documentation from start to finish of the new parks' construction processes and the demolition of Yankee Stadium and Shea Stadium. In addition to dozens of Mets and Yankees games, I look to make visits to a few Major League parks outside of New York every year.

The site has been mentioned in several publications including the New York Times (Three Times), the New York Daily News and Newsday.

If you would like to use any of the images on this site for personal purposes, please go ahead. If you would like to use any of the images for your website or any commercial purposes, please email me first. As many of the construciton/demolition photos were not taken by me, I don't really have the right to grant usage of those.


Tools
The website is entirely hand created. I use no HTML software. Every page was hand written in WordPad and probably always will be. Photos are edited and logos/titles made with Adobe Photoshop Elements 11. Panoramic photos are created with ArcSoft Panorama Maker 5 Pro.

I currently use a Nikon Coolpix S9900. The S9900 has most of the manual features of a fancy DSLR but in a more compact size with very good image quality.

I have used the following cameras during the life of the site:

  • Pre-2000: Various disposable film cameras
  • 2000-2003: Olympus D340R
  • 2004-2007: Sony DSC-P72
  • 2007-2009: Canon PowerShot SD750
  • 2009-2010: Sony DSC-W290
  • 2010-2012: Apple iPhone 4 (for Twitter pics)
  • 2011-2015: Nikon Coolpix P7000
  • 2012-2014: Apple iPhone 5 (for Twitter pics)
  • 2014-Present: Apple iPhone 6 (for Twitter pics)
  • 2016-Present: Nikon Coolpix S9900

    I like using Twitter to pass along immedate pictures from the games I'm at and updates to the site. Be sure to follow me there where my id is: @StadiumPage
