Just another mad weekend – Freeze fest London & BNTM
It seems that event companies do not talk to each other or London is hosting all the big events. The Relentless Freeze festival was on Friday and Saturday, a chance for snow buffs to flaunt their moves both on and off the slopes.
Being a snowboarding addict, the freestyle snowboard comp was the place to be. Shooting from the lip of the jump overlooking the crowds and the powerstation was an very windy but gnarly experience. The boarders did not disappoint, lots of spectacular manouvers and stacks made for quite a few great photos.
Sunday was a change of scenery, quite literally. From the windy platform where the snowboarders jump to the masses of women in pampering mode crammed into the Excel centre.
BNTM or BINTM depending on how much you like your 4/5 letter shortcuts.
On the whole, the show was great especially when people make the effort to look their best for the day. Lots of colour and met lots of people. Being an event photographer your brief is to cover the event, shows, stalls and importantly people. My focus was on the fashion in the field and the live shows and would have to say that the day did not disappoint.
The comic show down the hall with their well thought out, well designed outfits made halloween look like a school play vs a Hollywood block buster.
The Excel centre was a living beauty and the beast.
Unfortunately, part of my kit did not work as planned but as they say, a good handyman never blames his tools. I vow to get to the bottom of this.
