Fashion Footwear Photography at Hotter Shoes.  We’ve just been photographing a PR / social media campaign to support Hotter Shoes’ new advertising campaign. Hotter’s staff chose their favourite shoes for summer and were photographed against a set of vibrant colours to match the ad campaign. A really nice job and a great gang to work on this photography booking with.

We’ve been the first choice commercial PR photographers for this great fashion footwear brand for nearly 10 years and have covered a lot of wonderful subjects – right from the first job, a commercial photography shoot with the MD at the HQ in Skelmersdale, near Liverpool, as pictured here.

Jon Parker Lee - commercial photographer for Hotter Shoes UK Fashion Footwear Photography Hotter ShoesHotter Shoes was set up in 1959 in Lancashire and they’ve been designing and making footwear ever since – with over 80 stores worldwide.  They diversified from their roots – slipper production – in the early 1990s, when they identified a niche in the market for stylish shoes with comfort built in. Since then product innovation, world class production facilities and continual reinvestment in our business has seen our shoe collections expand beyond all recognition and our circle of Hotter friends grow by hundreds of thousands each year.
