2 stop strategy - Day one in the pit. LG Fashion Week. Toronto.

LG Fashion Week / Toronto - March 31st, 2010.

One thing that I love about photography; there are all kinds of photographers.

Arriving three days into this country's major fashion event is not a good way to make new photographer friends. Pity those who show up fresh tomorrow. I hope that they are not from Quebec, like me.

No one loves the guy who comes from out of town to shoot what they can shoot. Welcome to Toronto. " Anyone want gum," says a friendly soul as she shuffles seats for the umpteenth time.

I love the older newspaper guys. They know what it's like. Just speak loudly. These folks are problem solvers. They'll help you. Just speak loudly. Eye contact helps a lot too. Say your last name right after your first.
