CSVPA BA Fashion Shoot

This time of year is a busy and exciting one at the school I teach at (CSVPA). Students from all levels are about to submit their work for assessment, which means that there are a lots of end of year shows to attend. I’ve had a fair amount to do with a lot of them, seeing as they need a photographer to document everything. This year I had eight fashion student collections to photograph, which amounts to quite a lot of time in the studio, whilst at the same time trying to juggle my normal lessons. I restricted each fashion shoot to two hours but these things always take longer than expected.

I’ve been shooting the fashion students’ work for a few years now, but I’ve never had a blog so I haven’t made much use of it. It’s a bit of a shame as the students’ work is very impressive and quite varied in style. I’m not much of a fashion photographer but my approach is to get the basics right and mix it in with a bit of fun. My role is just to frame the pictures right; the concept and directing comes from the students.

It’s important to do a good job, as this is the beginning of the students’ careers and a lot of these images will provide them with the platform to create promotional material for their collections.

There will be more work to come – there are still the catwalk shows for BA and Foundation level students as well as all of the other subject exhibitions. In the next couple of weeks I will endeavour to upload photos from all of the shows I attend.

Here are photos of the individual students and their collections.  If anyone would like further information regarding the the fashion course, you can visit the school website here.
