Challenging the capacity at This Is London in downtown Toronto on this Thursday night was a YYZ Live production of Wear It Loud.  The Because I Am A Girl campaign was a huge success and not only were people treated to designer David Dixon’s latest ‘Barbie’ collection, but also witnessed two great performances by Anna Cyzon and Candy Coated Killahz.

Tech note: I usually like to be in front of the runway but since I was working with another photographer tonight, I decided to get a different angle.  These shots were just left of the runway about 30 feet back standing on a 3.5 foot stool.  The peeps at This Is London were kind enough to allow me to use the stool in the overcrowded floor and I’m sure the other photographers and the patrons were not impressed.  Its all about getting a different shot from the other photographers and sometimes you just have to ask and talk to people to get the right spot.  But you know that right?  24-70 2.8 at ISO 3200 (no flash). Speaking of different shots, a photographer decided to use an Orbis ring flash with a sync cord to get his “light”.  No problem with that, but dude you can’t be raising it high above your head during the runway show, front row centre, basically cutting every other photographer’s view behind you.  I don’t know whether to be angry or pat him on the back.

Much thanks to Kristina Knuckle from YYZ Live.

Added thanks to the staff at This Is London.

Special thanks to Aaron Mason for shooting with me on this night.  Always good to hang!
