I’ve only done one other runway fashion shoot for the ArtInMotion charity event held in a club in the city. Ford Model, Monica Watkin’s charity benefiting a Haitian orphanage . There were numerous designers and dozens of photographers. The photographers were crammed onto the tiny stage in a club environment. Trying not to elbow each other was a challenge. The front row of shutter pushers were crouched down under the lenses of the photographers behind us. The designers had some terrific creations and the models strutted their stuff.
A text from HMUA, Nicole Pigott asked if I was available for a fashion shoot the next day. The scheduled photographer had gotten a paid gig and apologized for the short notice, but $$$ takes precedence, because we all have bills to pay. A quick look at my calendar, yup! I met and worked with Nicole on a fashion shoot when model, Kimber DG needed me for House of Sadia‘s 2017 spring line fashion shoot. That’s also where I met model Caitie one of the runway models for this shoot.
I had no idea what the venue looked like, how the runway would be lit, how many models or photographers would be there until I arrived. I was the only one. I am a far cry from an event photographer but always willing to help someone out when I can.
Ready, aim, shoot!
