During the month of August, one of our less busier months of the year, I had a random thought while driving home from a meeting. It had been some time since we shot photos with people wearing their favorite NFL team … or teams, if you’re either terribly indecisive or a front runner.
It was also quite a bit since we did a portrait series for fun. Mostly for the sake of keeping our creative juice flowing. So what did we come up with?
“Think of Humans of New York, but much more light-hearted and with sports.”
Darryl and I are pretty big football fans. It was only right that we wanted to take a break from the norm and photograph fellow fans with the season kicking off, well, today.
When the question was posted on social media, the responses completely caught us off-guard. Don’t let this sample size of photos fool you – we couldn’t tell you how many people wanted to get involved.
It’s hard to believe that we had so many mini-sessions done in less than 3 weeks time. While we couldn’t get every team, it was more than great to take a break away from the norm of shooting predominantly weddings by doing this very photo series. Would we do this again? You bet.
Next time, we’re definitely aiming for photographing fans of all teams and not just a handful. We’ll make some kind of announcement much later on down the line for a second part to this series. For now, we hope you enjoy these.
Now if you excuse us, we have some games to catch.
