This project is a sample of my images about fashion shows, more specifically the runways (or catwalks). There a lot of pressure during a fashion show, for everybody involved including the photographers. We must be precise with the clicks to be sure we will get the perfect moment, in the perfect spot, with perfect light and unique look.
I’m a portrait, commercial and fashion photographer and my work on fashion realm is strongly influenced by names like Annie Leibovitz and Russel James. In fact, Russel James ‘s style and his work with the Victoria Secrets Fashion Show has been a major source of inspiration for my shots in the fashion show.
Usually in runways, I photograph with Nikon D750, a 70-200 mm 2.8. The ISO will depend on the light conditions – I always try to have a chat with the light technicians to figure out what the light conditions would be. Then, in postproduction, I use Adobe Lightroom and Adobe Photoshop.
I believe that people respond quite well. Usually the aftermatch is a few ‘thank you’ and ‘that was amazing!’ in social media. I think that in every runway photoshoot I learn something that I could do it better, so I absorb that I will try to do it on my next job.
If you are in Brisbane, Australia, please take the ferry and enjoy the river that cross the city. It is pretty cool.
