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.

Blogiversary!

Despite only returning to the whole blogging thing a few weeks ago, turns out today is a bit of a birthday. My first ever blog post was December 15th 2007... literally 10 years ago!!!!

Now obviously I’m not claiming to have blogged consistently for the entirety of the past 10 years. I haven’t blogged at all (besides the odd Guest blog on other people’s) for he past 4 years, but it’s still kinda crazy to think about the idea of blogging being that old, when we still talk about it being a ‘new thing’.

Charlie Heaton

Last month I was asked to shoot Charlie Heaton, a young actor who has just landed a role in a new Netflix series, Stranger Things. I don't know much more about it, but I believe it stars Winona Ryder.

Anyway, Charlie was a super cool guy with a real young Leo Di Caprio vibe going on, so I went with it and channelled a bit of 90's photographic style for the shoot.

Casuals Editorial

I love when a photoshoot has a proper narrative or theme, and this one was a great one. I don't shoot menswear all that often, so it makes a refreshing change from time to time. The theme for this editorial was the casuals movement of the 70's and 80's, synonymous with the football hooligans of that era.

Olympus trip to Berlin

So on thursday I got whisked away by Olympus to Berlin for the launch of their new 'Photographer's Playground'. Situated in Opernwerkstaetten, a workshop building in the old East Berlin where backdrops were created for the Berlin opera, the playground features a vast array of art installations all begging to be both appreciated and photographed. From a corridor filled with cardboard boxes, each one with it's own spinning wooden ball bouncing to create a truly unique cacophony, to the sealed ecosystem filled with mould, there was easily enough to keep peoples attention. Of course there were drinks and nibbles, as well as plenty of cameras to play with if you didn't have your own, making it easy for everyone to have a play!
