A couple of weeks ago we got a call from Advocare looking for a photographer for a shoot with Portland Timbers midfielder Darlington Nagbe. I was happy to shoot it as I’ve worked with him many many times, not only as the Timbers photographer, but I also hid in the bushes while he proposed to his now wife Felicia, shot maternity photos for them and shot photos of his new baby as well. I’m kind of the Nagbe personal photographer, so I was happy to shoot some cool photos for his latest product endorsement. Advocare sent a video crew up from Dallas and we rented out the Portland Futsal faciltiy on 17th Ave in SE Portland, which is the perfect facility for a photo shoot like this. This is one of my favorites from the shoot.
Tuesday night the Portland Timbers hosted the first CONCACAF Champions League game in Portland. The boys in green won 4-2 vs CD Olimpia of Hondorus taking the lead in the group stage of the tournament. Here are a few of my favorite photos from the game. The first shot I love. Maxi’s foot on the keepers foot, the keeper with a hand in the face and yet he still got passed him to score a goal!
This weekend we shot 3 sports events at 3 venues in 36 hours.
It all started with the big matchup between top 10 teams Oregon and Michigan St at Autzen Stadium. Great game. There was a forest fire about 30 miles away and the wind had carried the smokle into Eugene and it filtered the sunlight and made for some really nice light.
The next day the Timbers played host to San Jose. Another awesome game. The Timbers came out attacking and although the final was 3-3, it was probably one of the best games I’ve seen all year.
Finally, after the Timbers match I went straight to Ron Tonkin Field in Hillsboro to shoot the Championhip match between the Hillsboro Hops and Vancouver. Hillsboro one the game 4-2 and won the Northwest league Title for the first time to cap off a really busy, yet really fun weekend.
