So you know all those billboards around town proudly, yet minimalistically, telling the city that the Timbers MLS team will be taking the field this spring? Yeah, you've seen em around town. Personally, the amrketing behind them, in my opinion is brilliant. Taking actual Timbers fans and casting them with axes in a sort of "we're coming" way looks great. Too bad you, me, or most other fans didn't have the opportunity, right? Well, maybe you can...
While your picture certainly won't be up on a billboard anytime soon (these are purely fan pictures) the Timbers are currently holding a photo shoot at the downtown Timbers store where any fan can get a similarly professional created photo of them holding an axe, completely free of charge.
Here are the details:
The Timbers downtown team store located on SW 6th Avenue, Portland, OR 97205. The team store is between 6th and Alder.

Photo shooting started today so, if you've got time, now's your chance to get a professional Timbers photo taken.
