This is NYFA's 9th annual Runway Fashion Show. There are two performances 7pm and 9pm with limited photographer slots for each. This meetup event covers both events but each photographer will only shoot one of the two performances and optionally stay to observe (or shoot from a non-photographer location) the other due to the limited photographer spots.
A number of images are posted here: http://www.meetup.com/SeaPhoto/photos/1341416/
Our group has enjoyed shooting this the last several years, and had a great time at each. Signup is by waitlist only, and it is always oversubscribed, read below for details. In your RSVP please specify which event you prefer to shoot (late versus early) and it doesn't hurt to make a case for why you would like to shoot this event.
With events such as these we are faced with balancing previous experience against our desire to expose our less experienced members to new areas of interest. At each show we need to have one or two highly experienced photographers, but open remaining slots to those with moderate experience with passion to expand their skills since these are the photographers who will benefit the most from the experience. There is only space for 4 photographers at each show, so unfortunately we can't open this up to more people. Signup is by waitlist only, with selection based on contribution to the group such as assistant organizers, supporters, and those who have sent in ideas or suggested meetups, and previous participation especially if you posted some images, and fit, and expressed passion for this event.
Those attending one show but not the other will be allowed to stay to view the other show, but will not be allowed to shoot from the photographer areas/platforms during their "non-shooting" show. Please don't even ask if one of the other photographers will let you stand next to them, it sabotages their pictures due to lack of eye contact.
If you would like to shoot video, contact me asap as I may have one slot available for this.
