With the new 007 Skyfall movie hitting the charts, it’s more than the right time to take a look at the following video from Frasershot Studios.

James Fox introduces Crockett & Jones, one of the most classy, fanciest and posh shoe brands in the UK.

Mr. Craig, a valued costumer of Crockett & Jones, personally selected a range of four shoes to wear inĀ Skyfall, while playing the James Bond character:

Photographer Craig Fraser performed this session, as he described in the making-of video. It a was rather simple three light setup (a big top light and two back lights), although meticulously positioned to enhance the beautiful shoe curves. Lighting was a key element in this particular shooting, as Fraser aimed a dark, sort of discreet, yet graceful ambience.
