Having covered the Clothing Show several times now, I was eager to get some shots other than the usual runway.  Although the designers love runway images (yes I did give them plenty of those), they also requested backstage, atmosphere, candid shots etc with which to fill their blogs.  The show this season was in the Queen Elizabeth Building and there was a great space designated for make up and hair. Heather (Runway Director) and I decided that this location provided a great opportunity for some backstage candids and for the first time I was the only one shooting anywhere behind the scenes (I did have a great photographer assiting backstage shots on Saturday – Ryan McNab).  We also decided that there would be no photo booth this year due to logistics and this encouraged me to get a bit creative on the Runway.  Since the 4 shows are repeated twice on Saturday, the second set of shows I positioned myself in different parts of the runway and created photographs with interesting angles and compositions. 

Thanks to everyone involved with the Clothing Show and we’ll see you next season!!

All of my backstage and misc runway shots can be viewed here.
