Sole Shots: Friday, March 11, 2011

words // Brandon Richard

It’s fascinating to see the year-to-year growth of sneaker photography, which has certainly expanded beyond a casual snap of your latest pick-up into a legitimate art. If you’re a member of the Sole Collector Forums, you’ve probably seen some of the Sole Shots photographers develop their craft over the years, frequently improving the quality of their images and raising a collective bar within the sneaker community. As a result, newcomers to sneaker photography have great precedents to live up to, inspiring them to take on challenging concepts right out of the gate.

Hopefully the latest round of Sole Shots inspires you to go out and be great. The talent level is as high as it has ever been and will only increase from here on out.
