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 😉
Had to delve into the archives for this one – great topic though! The power of twos!
This was a shot I took of a mother and son at a christening. I thought it was such a sweet image despite its graininess.
Image I took in Australia some years back. Decks should always come in 2s, if not you’re not a real dj!😊
Couple’s shoe shot. Would have liked to have taken a wider shot so I could make it more panoramic so that the composition compliments the eye a bit better.
Two sleeping lions…think it says it all 😄
Two page boys waiting for the bride. Cutest thing ever!
Save the date pics I did for my friends. It was a lovely winging it session. Images came out beautifully – blog about this coming soon!
When I saw these 2 empty chairs I loved the composition. I was travelling on a boat hence the off centre shot 🙈 (dont judge me! Lol)
Well there you have it, my rendition of this challenge. I hope it was enjoyable. Any comments, reviews, critism is much obliged 😋
So a good friend of mine has asked me to be the photographer for her wedding. We’ve known each other for years and we’ve both photographed at weddings together as a team. It’s a real honour to be considered ‘good enough’ to capture such an important day in her life! Thanks Lis! xx
Here are a few pics from the shoot we did in Hyde Park. They are a really happy and jokey couple so it made getting them natural shots all the more easier.
Lisa was used to being behind the camera and her fiancé is a reporter based in front of the camera but somehow when the camera is pointing at you in a more personal setting you naturally feel a little uncomfortable. In order to relax them I asked them questions about when they first met, what their first impressions of each other was to get them thinking and not realising I was taking snaps. This worked a treat!
