Chester Boots

Chester Boots background

Chester Boots are a fourth generation family-owned footwear company, based in Portugal.

For many years they have produced boots for third party private shoe and boot companies who have used Chester's facilities to produce their own goods.

Now Chester are using a well-known UK shoe and boot designer who has worked for the very best over the years, and they are producing their own range of quality equestrian-orientated boots and shoes.

My involvement

The designer and I have worked together for many years on projects for companies like Quantum Saddles and Tagg Equestrian, often using the same models and venues for out photoshoots.

He got in touch with me in the summer of 2022 in order to arrange a shoot for Chester boots, using both still photography and videography. Chester's team would be in the UK for the BETA trade show in September, so a date was arranged which enabled them to join us for the shoot.

Chester have all their own studio photography of products so it made no sense to double up on this. Instead we shot products in real world, equestrian lifestyle environments. On mounting blocks, mounted on Alex Tordoff's lovely eventers, on and around the yard.

Although this wasn't a studio shoot, some external lighting was used. We had very strong directional lighting on the day so shadows were deep and needed to be partly filled with off-camera flash, for which I used a V1.

About Nico

I am an equine photographer, website designer and hosting provider living in Lincolnshire.

I work with clients who are sole traders and others which are FTSE companies. They are equally important to me.

If you need commercial photography, editorial photography, event photography, lifestyle, equestrian or wedding photography, then I can help you, with over 30 years experience in these areas.

I also teach photography. I mentor photographers with a range of experience, from beginners to working professionals and run an equine photography course which gives members access to articles about the business of equestrian photography.

I have a varied set of skills, having worked for well known web design and web analytics companies in parallel to my photography.

I design, host and maintain websites for clients as varied as farms, interior designers and equestrian centres, as well as for bloggers and sportspeople, including many riders.

I am the Public Relations Officer for the Midlands Point-to-Point Association, a role which utilises my PR and social media skills to promote horse racing both online and in the National press.

If you think that I could be the right person to help you, whatever your project, then please get in touch and we can discuss what you need and the ways in which I can help.
