Catwalk Pictures From The Press Pit

Up To Speed’s Photography students had a chance to shoot two fashion shows this week as guests of Canon Photography at London Fashion Weekend.

The team from Up To Speed in Bournemouth gained first-hand experience of the glamour, glitz and pressures of fashion photography in the event at Somerset House.

“The day was a really good opportunity to see what it’s like to work from the pit and it was really enjoyable,” said Pete Summers, 17, who has already passed all his NCTJ photography exams.

The four-day event follows on the heels of London Fashion Week and is aimed at retail buyers.

Up To Speed’s photography students will be using the images in their NCTJ portfolio, which is the final part of the professional qualification in Press Photography and Photojournalism they started at the end of September.

The students were accompanied by their tutor Neil Turner.
