Fashion Photography – London Mens Collections SS15

This was our first time covering London Mens Collections for an Agency.

First thoughts, much smaller than fashion week. This (as in fashion) has to be one of the few exceptions worldwide that we can think of where the female version is bigger with a higher profile (we are thinking of football as one example).

For Fashion Photography London Mens collections however had all the usual markings of fashion week, weird and wonderful and ahead of time street style, catwalks in different venues with photographers having a good workout during all the days (lugging a Peli case and equipment to and from various venues, stairs and all) enchanced accreditation for the higher profile designers (Moschino, Burberry, Hackett and the like) and photographers packed into a tiny press pit, which makes you want to warn all up and coming photographers, if you have an issue with personal space, do not think of press or fashion photography.

The space situation often sees us straddling or being straddled by complete strangers in a bit to get the best space.

Also there are the procedures of mark ups, where photographers get to set their positions beforehand days before the event, it seems as though not all photographers get this, if this is the case they have to find and make spaces when the event arrives around all the photographers that have their pre marked positions.

As for the fashion, our favourite show was the clean lines of Oliver Spencer, coupled with their introduction of Brazillian Carnival dancers and drums into the show.
