I’m not a fashion or commercial photographer by any means, as I’m a portrait photographer. But, when the opportunity came up from Shoe Daca to be one, I couldn’t turn it down. I packed up my gear and took on the challenge.
A little background on Shoe Daca. It’s a locally owned boutique in Elk Grove, CA. They offer a variety of brand name shoes such as Salt Water Sandals, Rainbow Sandals, BEARPAW Boots, Hello Kitty merchandise, Steve Madden, and soon to be added TOMS. They have other products besides shoes. They also carry purses and the latest in fashion. They hold many events each year, such as fashion shows, Hello Kitty meet and greet, and charity fundraisers. They also give back to their community by making donations from their sales, as well as, making donations of shoes and clothes to local schools and groups.
I had a great time taking photos of the store as well as the great models and products. They were easy to work with, and since I had full rein of the store, I made use of every corner. It was a long shoot, but I’m so glad I did it. If the opportunity comes up again, I will surely be ready for it. Armani, Versace, Gucci, anybody? Too early I suppose. I can be hopeful. =)
