Mercedes-Benz of Buffalo Fashion Week

Comments Off on Mercedes-Benz of Buffalo Fashion Week

Covered Mercedes-Benz of Buffalo Fashion Week once again which was held at Statler City in Buffalo. I almost didn’t make it this year as I forgot my wallet. I realized this 45 minutes into the drive and I was already running late. So back home and out again barely making it on time. This is a great venue and I remembered it well from last year. Similar to last year, there were some shows in the Terrace Room first and then the Golden Ballroom. This year they also added a swimwear show at the Rendezvous (which is located in the same venue but in the lower level) which I didn’t shoot. I needed to get back to Toronto and it was already getting late. I know, I know, swimwear… Anyway there were some fantastic designs in the shows and Mercedes-Benz of Buffalo Fashion Week did another fantastic job making this a great event. Regardless of the super tight media pit in the Golden Ballroom and a loser who spilled their wine right in the middle of the runway just before the shows began, which I’m sure ruined many photographs (luckily for me I shot full length of the model just before the spillage) I had a fun evening. I also met several new photographers and chatted with some from last year.  Great people.

Thanks to Rick and the team from Mercedes-Benz of Buffalo Fashion Week.

Lord Huron @ TD Echo Beach

Comments Off on Lord Huron @ TD Echo Beach

Great indie folk band from LA that opened for Alt-J at TD Echo Beach. They kept the lighting pretty low for this band with mainly some strong contrasty spotlights but at least it made for some good b&w shots.

I received an invite to cover Small Boutique Fashion Week once again and anytime I have an opportunity to go to NYC, it’s an absolute no brainer. I love NYC!! As usual during NY Fashion Week there are many runway shows all around the city and although I had invites for a couple of other shows, I ended up just shooting this one day marathon. Basically there were three showcases for the day (12pm, 4pm and 8pm) that included over 30 designers total. Each showcase was over an hour long and my legs and feet definitely got a workout while shooting. The venue was the Metropolitan Pavilion and as much as I like the venue, the lighting could have been a bit more even. All good though and I captured some fantastic designs. Once again I met some new photographers and reconnected with some from a year ago. After that 12hr day, I spent two great days visiting my favourite places in NYC.

Thanks to the team at SBFW.

Eastern State Penitentiary

Comments Off on Eastern State Penitentiary

I remember viewing a photographer’s portfolio of Eastern State Penitentiary about a year ago and just loved the images. I finally had an opportunity to go to Philadelphia since I was invited to cover Small Boutique Fashion Week in New York once again and thought for the extra 1.5hr drive, it would be well worth it. Subsequently I spent a good four hours shooting inside the penitentiary, amazed by the cells which were left pretty much untouched since they shut down operation over 40 years ago. Technically, although I had several lenses and a couple of camera bodies with me for the trip, I used my 35mm F2 and Nikon D700 exclusively. Click here to view all of my favourite images from that great day.

Riot Fest @ Fort York

Comments Off on Riot Fest @ Fort York

Covered Riot Fest in Toronto at Fort York for Quip Magazine. There were lots of bands for this two day festival and the one I looked forward to shooting the most was Dinosaur Jr. They definitely didn’t disappoint but holy crap were they ever loud! Biggest hype was Iggy And The Stooges and although they performed an awesome set, I was caught in some politics with regards to media. Due to the extra large amount of media we were separated into two groups for Iggy And The Stooges show and The Replacements show. The group I was in for Iggy didn’t make it into the pit. In fact we were stuck at a bad angel left of stage in an aisle that was only three feet wide within the crowd. Thank goodness I had my 70-200 since all of my shots of Iggy had to be captured with my camera held high above the patrons at 200mm. I left the focus point in the middle and aimed my camera as best I could. Man, was I pissed! Talk about a complete f*ck up. For The Replacements, I was with the other group which was in the pit, right of stage. We weren’t allowed to move from this spot and ended up behind some taller photographers with a crap angle. Anyway, apart from those two annoyances, it was a great festival with some awesome bands! And hey, I finally shot a festival this year where it didn’t rain.

Thanks to Quip Magazine.
