Stylelife – London Fashion Week

A trip to Somerset House after work yesterday offered up the opportunity to photograph dedicated followers of fashion, style setters, eccentrics and the fashion-curious gathered in one place for London Fashion Week.

The only problem for a street photographer who likes to place people in context with lots of space around them was that there wasn’t much space. With a huge marquee/ temporary building taking up most of the courtyard, most of the action was squeezed into the edges against the balustrades and trying to get a full-length shot of one or two people meant getting lots of extras in shot too!

But I love a challenge. And though I got quite a few shots that would have been great if it weren’t for the person standing right next to them or the person walking into shot, that stray hat, arm, bag… I hope I caught a few decent ones.
