Over the weekend I had the unique opportunity to photograph a local fashion show, “Gasparilla Fashion Week: Presents Infinite Reality”, in Tampa, Florida at The Kennedy. This was sure a challenging opportunity for me to work on my photography skills in low light as flash was not permitted. This show consisted of 4 different designers including Ecovogue365, Val St. Claire & Ricky Lindsay Couture, Kinky Kitty, and Zenvios Designz. During the sets Le Teaze Burlesque Troupe performed as well super heroes were there to energize the crowd. You can sure say the fashion show was wide ranging as you can see from the photo set.
Before the show began, I had behind the scenes back stage. If you ever want to know how many people it takes to run a successful fashion show, your answer will probably not be nearly as many as it really takes. There is not just one makeup artist (MUAs) and hair stylists like Jerah Lena Coviello, but they come with a team so they can work different booths at the same time. Even they don’t come alone as their assistants come prepared to assist wherever they can. Seen below are some photos from behind the scenes. The production staff included Prive Event Management, multiple videographers, DJ, sound and lighting guys. Plus a few photographers.
Before the show began, there was a frantic call for a safety pin. Luckily a safety pin was found and the show begun. Here is some fashion from Ecovogue365 which can be found at www.ecovogue365.com
