Specializing in Visual Solutions for Clients' Concepts

Shoes Gallery

I got labeled the Shoe King at one point in my career, and photographed shoes for nearly every brand.  Then, after a while, I became labeled as specializing in something completely different. As far as I was concerned, I couldn’t be labeled for anything in particular. My specialty was figuring out how to make the creative team's concept a reality, and to make the client happy.

We had a casting at the studio with babies crawling all over the place. Actually, they weren't crawling. They were "scampering!" It was quite a scene!  We chose this one and a back-up, and, with a little bit of warm sunshine lighting, shot and shot and shot.  The shoe part was easy!
