Axe Portrait and
Photo Shoot Details

Providence Park | Jan. 25-26, Feb. 1, 2020.

RSVP and Invite Friends with Facebook

In 2011 and 2015, we took professional portraits of Timbers supporters holding axes. We're excited to announce that this year, in celebration of our 10th season in MLS, we’re holding this special event again. The free photoshoots, open to everyone, will take place over three days in January and February – January 25, 26 and February 1 -- at Providence Park.

And yes, you once again have the chance to be on your very own billboard, as voted by you, our supporters.

Here's how it works...

Do I need to bring anything?

No. We will provide the axes. You are welcome to bring your own DIY items as long as they are safe, appropriate and adhere to our stadium policies. Props like this are encouraged.

When will I receive my photo?

Approximately two weeks from your shoot date. We will load them onto and alert you via email when they are ready to be downloaded.

Can I take more than one photo?

Due to the expected high turnout, and to ensure we can take everyone's photo, you will be limited to one photo.

Can I make an appointment?

No, everyone will be photographed on a first-come, first-served basis.

When will the billboard contest start?

We plan to start the voting in February with the billboard projected to be displayed in March in downtown Portland.

Can I bring my pet(s)?

Pets aren't allowed into Providence Park so please leave your furry friends at home.

How many people can be photographed at one time?

Given the limited space near the backdrop, we advise no more than four people per photo.
