Some parting shots following another year of Toronto Fashion Week.
After shooting fashion and runway shows on and off at the Star for the last 25 years, I'd say the level of production here at Toronto Fashion Week now easily compares to the shows in Milan, London, Paris and New York. Big venue, good lighting and for gear heads, absolutely the fastest internet connection I've seen! Great for sending 20 images on deadline, in less than a minute.
A tip of my hat to fellow Star photog Carlos Osorio for his help and infectious enthusiasm. Also to George Pimentel for keeping things under control in the photo pit.
Shooting fashion is a great opportunity for me to try something different, whether it's on the runway or in the studio. Below is the result of several lens choices and angles I used to capture the mood and spirit of the event.
Update April 3, 2011 - Here are some links to the regular coverage I shot for the Star's paper and online photo galleries. It's a more straight on approach designed to showcase the clothing.
