Asian Bride Fashion Show

So I attended the National Asian Wedding show in October at London’s Excel Centre.  I wasn’t sure what to expect as I had previously attended the Asian Bride Live Expo at the beginning of the year.

Well this year was definitely different, they had a proper catwalk and loads of press. I had tried to get a press pass beforehand but since I dont do photography professionally I couldnt obtain one. Anywhoo entered the catwalk as a member of the public and walked past the press stand and simply asked if I could sit at the end (had mt Leica around my neck which made me look more the part) and the usher said thats fine. Whoop whoop

Managed to network with a few of the photographers, some who were professionals and some who were enthusiasts, even got me a few tipsnon how to photograph a fashion show as I had never really done one like this before. The photographer told me to capture the model just as they take a step or just after. Which is more difficult than it seems.

Here’s some pics I took of the fashion show…would love feedback.

One key tip id say is research the hell out of the fashion designers, their brands, the models etc and tag them in your shots, even the makeup artists, the shoe sponsors to the event organisers. on my instagram page I managed to find a lot of the models and extra sponsors who liked my work and opens me up to their networks which as a new photographer, I could always do with 😉
