Catwalk and Backstage photography is a very vibrant and exciting world we are lucky to be a part of. It is constantly changing and is full of movement and energy. The build up to a fashion show is electric, a buzz in the air along with the stress of it all coming together on time makes for a unique situation. A designer getting in the zone, hair and makeup against the clock, the models going from states of calm to complete mayhem with the PR’s and production orchestrating every move.
Settings are crucial to us, the right lighting so important and knowing when and when not to put yourself in the situation key. You need to blend effortlessly into the mix when you shoot backstage, as if you are not even there, letting everything play out before your eyes. We don’t get in the way; we know what beauty images count and how to hustle for the first looks. Whilst all of this is happening behind the scenes, our catwalk photographers have already got prime position, shot the rehearsal so to know what aperture and speed they need for the best results and is preparing for when all the elements have come together in what will be an exhilarating show.
