London Fashion Week 2017 / by Luke Pyett


I know this is quite a late post seeing that LFW was back in February, but I wanted to talk about my experiences from a photographers perspective.

Surprisingly the trains to London were running on the day of LFW, so myself and a close friend/fellow photographer – @louiefilm took the trip down to London to shoot outside of the show at 180 The Strand. We had already been to the first show of the year back in January, however this time the natural sunlight was definitely on our side.

We were only planning on spending half of the day at this location, however, the day was over before we knew it and we ended up spending pretty much the entire day shooting at The Strand. Although we didn't go into any of the shows or presentations this time, a lot of the action took place outside of the show with many people taking photographs, networking, exchanging their Instagram accounts and just generally chatting about photography and fashion.

For someone that is looking to improve their portrait skills or simply meet with photographers then this event makes for the perfect opportunity. It's great to be able to take a bunch of photos, with the majority of people that are attending the show happy to strike a pose. It was also good to see so many people networking and talking about their own experiences shooting, no egos just creatives that have a common interest in photography/videography and fashion. 

Anyway here's to my first ever blog post. 

DM me up on Instagram if you think you'll be going to LFW in September 2017!
