Fashion Show, Runway & Catwalk Photography

When it comes to catwalk shows, it very quickly becomes apparent they are not cheap events, either to stage or to participate in. That’s why you need a good fashion show photographer. Someone who knows what they’re doing and has a track record of delivering.

Shooting a fashion show is both as exhilarating as it is challenging, and as rewarding as it is pressured. Fashion show photography is without a doubt one of the most technical and demanding types of shoot I do.

I LOVE THEM!! The pix POP, and jump out at you! wow! You have a very very good eye my friend! You captured the fabric details as well as the expressions on the models faces. One can almost ‘reach out and touch’

As with all forms of fashion photography, runway is all about the dress. It has to come alive in the shot. The colours have to be right. The texture, the detail, the workmanship all have to show through.

Then there is the model. There is no direction so the timing has to be perfect to nail that killer shot. The sparkle in the eye, the swish of the skirt, that cheeky look back over the shoulder on the return. It’s all there for the taking. It’s all about the timing…

…and the breathing. In time with the model’s footsteps. Avoid the flamingo shot. Watch out for the Herr Flick. Time it just right. Fingers ablur on the back of the camera, constantly adjusting the exposure down the length of the runway in sympathy with the changing light.

I’m in the “pit” with sometimes 50 or more photographers. We’re all competing for that killer shot. It’s hot, it’s cramped, the noise of the shutters is deafening. The cameraderie is great. Amongst the pro’s that is. They’re a good bunch. We’re all there to do a job.

Do I like it? No, I absolutely love it.
