New Zealand Eco Fashion Exposed

Captur8 Photography was asked to be one of the official Photographers at the New Zealand Eco Fashion Exposed in Lower Hutt, from the 24th to the 26th of July, what a challenge and a privilege!!

Photography wise, the event was a challenge; very low light, no flash, high ISO and moving subjects. This is usually a recipe for lots of blurry images and a lack of sharpness. I was shooting with 2 cameras (sometimes at the same time), but I am really happy with the results. The biggest pat on the back for me, is being asked to come back next year!:)

It was such a perfect event for me to be photographing, mixing my previous role (4 years ago) as Resource Exchange Coordinator, where I was helping businesses and members of the community recycle and look at alternative ways to re-use and reduce waste in the Waitaki District.

The event was founded by Denise Anglesey to provide a platform for designers who produce Ethical, Ecological and Up Cycled Fashion. This type of fashion is becoming more and more popular; as people start to understand the strain the clothing industry can take on the environment! Collections on show ranged from Casual Street wear through to high-end fashion pieces and models from Panache Modeling Agency presented the garments, with style and personality. Plush Studio used SANTE Naturkosmetik make up the models to create a fresh and natural look. The event was super inspiring for me, meeting loads of new people and viewing some creative design talent from New Zealand and Australia. Designers works included;

 Watch this space for some collaborative projects with a few of the Designers in the future!! (Yes, pretty excited about that!! Bursting actually!!)
