Thank God my Nikon super zoom lens and the strong gusty winds, it blew up the curtain and we all caught a glimpse of Thom Browne’s magical show from the sidelines! I love how the shoes were mismatched, and who would have thought to wear one boot and heel?
Shooting street style at Balenciaga was probably one of the most difficult shows I’ve experienced. The security, dressed in Balenciaga raincoats were exceedingly strict and managed to keep us at bay and we weren’t even allowed to enter into the compound to take any images . Luckily I stayed back for an extra 30 mins and shot a few off-duty models.
This was Gucci’s first show in Paris outside of Milan, and it was manic with screaming fans and typical traffic jams. It was impossible to get any neat shots as every thing was happening so fast but I’m still managed to squeeze past the security to capture a few moments and street style looks. Even the famous actor, Jared Leto made a brief appearance which made all the fans go crazy.
All images were taken on the new mirrorless Nikon Z7 camera using Nikkor 70-200mm lens. The camera mode was set on “auto” which gives me an advantage of tracking people’s faces as I shoot without losing the moment. What a cool feature!
