How to Photograph Fashion Week

I’ve been going to fashion week for years, and I always see people making the same photographic mistakes season after season.

Last year I made a couple of videos containing tips on how to improve your fashion week photography.

The first is all about runway shows and how to get the best shots from the side of the catwalk rather than the photographers pit at the end. I’ve included various images that show you don’t necessarily need to be sitting front row to get interesting photos.

Are old digital cameras still viable in 2018? - Olympus PEN E-PL1

Moving on from the incredibly large Canon EOS 1D Mark III in my series of old cameras and their viability in 2018, brings us to the Olympus PEN E-PL1. Launched in 2010, it’s safe to say that this camera changed my life!

Back then I was using both a Hasselblad H3DII and the aforementioned Canon EOS 1D Mark III for all my work photography, but I wanted something for ordinary every day photos. Hipstamatic was huge at the time for iPhone, but I just wasn’t into using my phone for photography.

Picture frames redux

Many moons ago, I blogged about filling the empty picture frames adorning the walls of my East London flat. Well I still haven't filled them! However, tomorrow I shall be going to Focus on Imaging at the NEC to give a talk for Hasselblad, and there will be undoubtedly stands there offering free prints in order to showcase the latest printers.

So it's back to the initial problem... What do I put in the frames? Well I think I've got a bit closer to making a decision...

Olympus User Interview

The Autumn 2011 issue of Olympus User Magazine is out with an 6 page interview feature on yours truly, along with the cover image.

As many of you know, I use the E-PL1 as an everyday camera. I have it with me all the time, and in many ways it has replaced the camera in my iPhone. I recently started a Photo Diary to give me somewhere to put some of the images I shoot with it. I was chuffed to bits when I got a call from the editor of Olympus User, saying that he'd read in my article in Photo Professional magazine that I'm a lover of the small camera, and would I be interested in doing an interview with them.

Bryce Aime SS12 'LIVE' Shoot @ LFW

Here are the images from the Bryce Aime 'Live' photoshoot I took part in during London Fashion Week. I'm used to working in front of people when I shoot, due to having make up artists and stylists and the like being on set, but this was the first time I'd had an actual "audience" in the room!

I attended Bryce Aime's AW11 show back in February, so was interested to see the evolution of his style from one collection to the next. I was to be shooting three show pieces for his SS12 collection.
