Agave Denim Calls Up Portland Timbers Stars
For Fall 2012 Photo-Shoot Friendly
Portland, OR, Aug 2012 - Agave Denim,"Portland's Denim Company", teamed up with members of the Portland Timbers soccer team at a downtown studio to shoot campaign and 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.

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
