Now onto his story!
I'm Nick, a family guy with a love for boots and denim and all that goes with them. I've always loved denim and developed a passion for boots as I got older. I'm married to a lovely woman, have a little girl who's 2 and a black labrador; We're always travelling around the UK and finding some great locations to take the next shot.
How did you start Instagram?
I started because I followed a lot of great accounts with a denim and boots story and I really wanted to be a part of it. It's such a great community and some lovely, genuine people.
What does social media/Instagram mean to you?
Instagram inparticular is a genuine place to meet guys and girls that are interested in similar stuff, the denim and boot community and such a nice bunch. I've not had the chance to go to a big meet yet, but would love to meet up with some of the guys I've been talking to over the last few months.
Any interesting encounters through social media?
I've had so many good conversations with people over the last few months, it's been a great outlet for my boot and denim addiction. To find like-minded folks all over the world really is such fun.
Which people/books have had the most influence on your growth and why?
That's a really difficult one, because there's been so many great people that have helped me along the way and I've interacted with.
What feelings do you have for "Made in Japan" jeans/fashion products?
I love, as most do, the japanese denim, but not just that, the whole japanese fashion is so well developed and made, the quality of garment is so strong.
