I had the special privilege of attending the 2021 Rhode Island Fashion week as a professional photographer. During this time, I had access to runway shows, behind the scenes, guest portraits, and a special effects portrait shoot with some of the models.
For the guest portraits, I had a small area of space behind the check in table where guests would be able to have their photo taken. This area was very dark, so I attached my LED panel to the hot-shoe on my camera body and was able to light up the scene without needing bulky equipment.
Behind The Scenes
Before the runway showings began, I had a great opportunity to head behind the scenes. I was able to meet lots of different models, designers, and event coordinators. Speaking with everyone gave me a different perspective on the whole event, and allowed me to capture some fantastic photos of preparation time.
After a long day of prepping, the models and designers were ready for their runway showcases. Here are the photos I captured from the runway displays.
Special Effects Photoshoot
After the final runway, I was able to head outside with a small group of models for a special effects photoshoot. We had a pair of powerful LED light bars, which we used as lighting for our scene in front of both a glass wall and a mural. The photos produced from this shoot are spectacular!
