Agave Denim Calls Up Portland Timbers Stars For Fall 2012 Photo-Shoot Friendly
Agave Denim teamed up with friends and MLS players over at the Portland Timbers soccer team to shoot images for Fall 2012.The shoot features Darlington Nagbe,Sal Zizzo, Eric Brunner and shows the incredible fit and technical performance of Agave.
Agave Denim,“Portland’s Denim Company”, teamed up with members of the Portland Timbers soccer team at a downtown studio to shoot collection images for Fall 2012 release. The shoot was produced and styled by Agave denim designer/owners Jeff and Lauren Shafer and shot by the talented, Portland photographer Brian Walker Lee.
Agave designer/owners Jeff and Lauren Shafer, who are both as passionate about the Timbers almost as much as they are about denim, came up with the idea for the shoot when they were looking for real people, not professional models, to shoot for a seasonal campaign showcasing its sought after stretch denim fabrics. Ever since the couple moved their family to the area six years ago, they have become avid fans of the Timbers, following all games with their two teenage sons as season ticket holders. The admiration was mutual and when the Shafer’s found out several years ago that the Timbers management were fans of Agave jeans too they were both honored and thrilled to partner. The personal relationship between Jeff and the Timber’s COO, Mike Golub, the 2011 MLS Executive of the year, has grown over the years and led to Agave company trips to JELD-WEN Field as guests of the Timbers and visits by the Timbers to Shafer’s design studio to get fitted in the latest from Agave’s denim collection. So as soon as the photo-shoot idea came to mind, Shafer called on the Timbers to take part in the shoot and they committed to having three of their top players available for the Agave project.
The Timbers players who signed up for shoot day included midfielder Sal Zizzo # 5, defender Eric Brunner # 7, and midfielder superstar Darlington Nagbe #6. The players arrived early at Studio Nemo in downtown Portland and spent the whole day sharing stories, hanging out & enjoying themselves with the Shafer’s. Each player took turns picking out their favorite pieces from Agave’s Fall collection and, with Jeff and Lauren’s help, put together an outfit to wear on camera. With the large studio space at hand Walker Lee was able to capture each player on set showing off his skilled footwork and true athletic soccer moves. The impactful images display both skill and style of each player, showcasing key designs and attributes from Agave Denim Fall 2012 Collection. Further information and hi-res images are available.
