As part of the Portland Timbers' 10th MLS season celebration, the first of the Fan Axe Portrait shoots got underway this past weekend with over 2,000 people visiting Providence Park to get their free iconic axe photo. For many, it was their first, for others, it was their third having attended past shoots in 2011 and 2015.
Missed the shoot this weekend? You've got another chance on Feb. 1 here at the park from 10am to 6pm PT.
Thank you to everyone who came to the first 2020 #PTXPortrait shoot today (and for your patience!).🪓— Portland Timbers (@TimbersFC) January 26, 2020

There’s just one more chance to get your axe portrait: next weekend! Details at https://t.co/mo3AYIFZld. #TimbersX #RCTID pic.twitter.com/fvE1lxXtne
Weekend one of @timbersfc axe portraits complete. We shot over 13,000 frames of over 2,000 people, most of whom waited in line for 3-4 hours to be in front of our cameras. Crazy. We spent an entire day setting up and two 10 hour days of shooting non stop. An absolute dream team working with @hornbecker, @alex_kocher, @jellyhelm, @freddyjoe, @stellahsam and Jonah not to mention all the other Timbers staff on this huge project. The very definition of a team. Next weekend we do it all again. #rctid
