Monday morning found us photographing store displays for Adidas at the Westfield Mall in San Francisco. I had my assistant Marco with me to help schlep gear and assist with the technical aspects of the shoot. The store faces Market Street, and at 8:00 AM in the morning there is a fair amount of pedestrian traffic, so one of the challenges was trying to capture the store front free of people. Our job also took us inside the store to photograph in-store displays. Our assignment was to document the XBYO. For this collection adidas Originals enlisted the skills of famed Japanese pattern cutter Satomi Nakamura from Japanese fashion label COMME Des GARÃ‡ONS.
