Last week I was on the weekly “Timbers in 30″ TV show showing my photos of the year from the 2013 regular season. Skip to the 12:30 mark to see my segment.

If you fly on an Alaska Airlines flight this month you might see this in the seat back in front of you. They are featuring a photo I shot of Darlington Nagbe from a match against the Vancouver Whitecaps earlier this year on the cover of the September Issue.
Back in February, Timbers Communications VP Chris Metz and I were brain storming ideas for the match day program/team magazine. It is always fun trying to come up with something creative for 17 different issues throughout the year. Normally, we would decide who the cover person would be then shoot a portrait of them before the program went to press. Because of team travel and player schedules it was always a bit of a pain to get them scheduled when we needed. So this year, we decided to shoot everyone on the same day and then they could just plug and play the photos depending on who was going to be featured on for that particular issue. We also shoot a “cover photo” of new players when they come in for the same reason. After going back and forth on a few ideas Metz had the great idea to use the KISS solo album covers for our inspiration. Each of those photos is essentially the same, but given a slightly different treatment in post to make them unique as well. Turned out to be a great idea. So once training camp began, we shot all 30 players on the team. Andrew at Gutoski Creative took the photos of the players and a photo of some smoke from a match and put the final touches on the cover designs. He did a great job with the concept and final design. Every match day I look forward to see who is going to be that weeks cover boy. By the time the season is over there will be 17 or so different/yet same covers. Here are a few of my favorites thus far.
