Nick Glackin : Sneaker Photography

Nick Glackin | The Style Raconteur

Art & Sole recently did an article on Nick Glackin who is someone Ive followed on Instagram for a while now. His sneaker photography is one if not THE best in a staturated genre on Instagram…take a peek

Manchester-based photographer Nick Glackin, aka Glackster, has taken the concept of footwear photography to a whole new (and much smaller) level…

Everyday, thousands of photographs of sneakers are being posted onto the Internet through various social media channels, inevitably getting replaced or forgotten about the following day. With this in mind, Glackin went about creating a more interesting way of photographing shoes, utilising a selection of miniature model figures to set various scenes.

The scenarios he creates with the figures (many of which are custom painted) will often reference a particular element of the relevant shoe. Whether that be a nod to the colourway name, the overall theme of the shoe, or even the cultural relevance it holds within the sneaker scene.
