Sometimes, people ask me about the gear that I bring when I am shooting runway shows during New York Fashion Week. So today, I’d like to talk a bit about some of the equipment that I bring with me when I am shooting a fashion show.
One of the great things about shooting photos for a major fashion show, like the ones held at Lincoln Center, for New York Fashion Week, is that you don’t actually need to bring a lot of equipment with you. I tend to pack rather light. During Fashion Week, you’ll spend a lot of time waiting in line for things, so I don’t want my backpack weighed down with a lot of items that I just don’t need. Below, I will list all the equipment that I use when I am shooting a fashion show. After that, I’ll explain what I like and don’t like about the equipment that I use, as well as what equipment that I would like to use in the future.
