As my first season as an official photographer for Kansas City Fashion Week ends I feel more inspired than ever. I can’t say enough good things about the entire organization that puts it together. Everyone is so welcoming and helpful. The atmosphere is one of collaboration at every level, the kind that makes Kansas City great. So much talent and artistry from the makeup and hair people, to the space designers, to the models and everyone in between. Everything went seamless and you can tell the attention to detail that goes into everything. And the sickening fashion the designers put down the runway was honestly jaw dropping at every turn.
But for me the most amazing part about the whole experience was the incredibly talented group of photographers. I was super nervous the first night and everyone was so nice and super helpful. It was awesome to be around a group of people that all wanted to see each other succeed.
I went into Fashion Week wanting to take risks and not let fear hold me back in anyway. And the collaborative environment of all the photographers really helped me to push myself to try new techniques and refine my craft. I had been dying to try a high quality prism filter and one of the photographers even let me try theirs, and you guys I’m obsessed. So expect to see more prism action in the near future.
I’m truly grateful for the whole experience and it really has made me want to push myself to do some of the artistic concepts I’ve been wanting to do for awhile now. So stay tuned, and in the meantime enjoy some of my favorite artsy shots from Kansas City Fashion Week S/S 20.
