Just spent the last 5 days shooting London Fashion Week, i have been covering this twice yearly event for the last seven years and i still love it.
This year marks 25 years of the British Fashion Council so opening the week was Paul Costelloe, one of the few designers who has been on the catwalk from the beginning.

Being a Canon man, one of the best things about fashion week is being able to borrow kit from Canon who are the main sponsors of London Fashion Week.
It’s a great opportunity to try out the latest cameras and lenses on offer and most importantly try them out in a working environment.
Im looking at getting a 5d mark 2 later this year but i wanted to know just how well it performs in low light conditions so i went backstage and shot some images in natural light pushing the ISO.
Taken on a 5D mark 2, 16-35mm lens, ISO 5000
16-35mm lens, ISO 6400
70-200mm lens, ISO 6400
16-35mm lens ISO 6400
It looks amazing at ISO 6400 and as i shoot a lot of my wedding photography using available light, this camera is going to be perfect for my kind of wedding photography.
I also got to play with the Canon 200mm f2 lens, so i abandoned my usual spot at the front and headed off to the back of the photographers pit to try it out.
