Michael Jordan - Shoe collection by a lover

Whether you are a shoe lover, a collector, or in just to make money. Well this is definitely for you. This will have you salivating. Why? Collecting Jordan shoes is not an easy thing. Meaning you could be one of the few to collect some of the
rarest shoes ever made by Michael Jordan. 
I was asked by Jordan Dino to Photoshoot his collections. I was happy to accept his offer and  was really excited about shooting his private collections of shoes. He also mentioned that there is a lot of shoes to take photos. In my mind how bad could it be or how hard could it be taking photos of shoes. The only thing I figured that would be hard is hauling all of my equipments and setting up. I hauled all of my Studio lights to his home.

 As I was setting up I saw shoes everywhere. I have been to his home and I have seen some of his collections but I have not seen it all until then. Here is a sample of his collections.

I was amazed of how many shoes there was and at the same time my jaw almost fell to the ground. I realized that I'm in for a whole day or maybe more. I remember Jordan Dino telling me that one of his most expensive shoes is Jordan 3 worth $750,  Jordan 4 worth $700,  and there was many more that are worth more.
I just did a quick calculation and estimated how much is everything worth. I just took an estimate of $200 per shoes and there was 250 pairs. The total was $50,000 per my own estimate. I think it's worth more than that and still appreciating.  As a side note,  Jordan Dino is also a Designer for custom shoes, he really makes an awesome design. Click here to check his designs.

I had set up a three lights photoshoot. Two Monolight at 45deg. angle with translucent umbellas and one more more light above the shoes and a white reflector to add more light. I used a black ground and a glass tempered to show the reflections of the shoes.

I was really happy how all the pictures turned out. Here are the sample of the Photoshoot.
