Nike Running Shoe
I’ve been talking about this shot lately and I realized I hadn’t ever posted it here. It was this shot that inspired the work I did for Portland Monthly.
It’s a rare occurrence, but this wasn’t a shot that I planned out far ahead. I was getting ready for a meeting with Nike and I had been warned I couldn’t show the Adidas shoes I had in my book. With that in mind I dropped by the Nike factory store to see what caught my eye. I grabbed a bright orange basketball shoe then went looking for something that would work together with that shot. I saw these and when I noticed one of the selling points was their lightweight construction this idea popped into my head. The biggest challenge was keeping the batting from falling apart while balancing a shoe on top of it all on top of a light stand.
Check out lots more shoes, as well as all kinds of other cool stuff, on my website.
