WORLD’S GREATEST FANS :: Lambeau Field Portrait Series


This blog post comes from waaaay back in the archives. I recently realized I sometimes shoot rad work that never sees the light of day or essentially gets lost in the everyday business routine. It just dawned on me I never showed this series, with the exception of my print portfolio in days gone by. Still, it remains a favorite of mine.

Below is a series of portraits I shot in 2011 at Lambeau Field in Green Bay before the Packers game against their long-time rival’s, the Chicago Bears. Truth be told, Packers fan are the most outrageous, ridiculous, big-hearted and truly dedicated football fans on the face of the earth. We spent the morning before the gates opened making portraits and got to hang out with a bunch of Packers fans… and yes, we drank their beer and ate their burgers. It was a great day, no doubt. Given the fact that the temperature was -21 degrees and our equipment was literally freezing in our hands, it reinstated the common known fact that Packers fans.. are the WORLDS GREATEST FANS.

Enjoy this blast from the past!

    Very cool series, and I say that as a Bears fan! =)

    What kind of lighting rig were you using? You’ve matched the sunlight to their backs so well (look at those crazy shadows out front, dang!) that a couple of them almost look composited! I’d love to have that kind of power with me when I’m out and about!

    Hey Justin!

    Thanks! I used an Alienbee 1600 with a 28″ Wescott Apollo softbox. Yeah, it has that composite look, but I generally made sure to keep the sun at their backs in all the shots.
