The shOws featuring Thomas Tait and Calla Haynes

Comments Off on The shOws featuring Thomas Tait and Calla Haynes

One of the exciting events during Rogue Fashion Week in Toronto was The shOws which was held at The Ritz Carlton in downtown Toronto. Hosted by Coco Rocha, it was a two day event featuring four canadian designers for an intimate, invitation only runway show featuring their new Spring/Summer 2012 designs. Day one featured Thomas Tait and Calla Haynes and these images are of some of my favourite designs from the runway show.
It was great to see some familiar faces in the pit (Ron, Raymond and Dickson) from past runway shows in Toronto and also great to meet new photographers as well. My spot in the pit was just right of the runway on top of the platform and I found my D700/70-200 2.8 VRII combo a bit short of what I thought would be the sweet spot in shooting with the lighting and my position in relation to the runway.  I had my D300 and probably should have used it for the extra reach and at ISO 500, with which I was shooting, I wouldn’t have a problem with noise. Regardless, I was able to get some great images.
