How would you like the opportunity to shoot two catwalk shows from the photographer's pit, the same pit where hours earlier the world's press will have been shooting London Fashion Week?

In partnership with Canon, we're giving you the opportunity to join us at Somerset House in London on Sunday 23rd September to photograph two shows at London Fashion Weekend. This is an opportunity for photography enthusiasts of all levels of experience, from beginners to professionals, with guidance available to those who are new to catwalk photography.

The best part? It's FREE! You just need to secure one of the limited spaces available as soon as possible. Here's what you need to know:

Date & Time

The event will be held on Sunday 23 September 2012.

You can opt to attend one of two available sessions, starting at either 11:30am or 2:30pm.

You will need to specify which session you'd prefer to attend when you book and we'll try our best to accommodate your request. If no session is specified we will allocate attendees to one of the two sessions.


The catwalk show will be in the Main Show Tent in the main courtyard space of Somerset House in Covent Garden, London.

The meeting place and time will be provided closer to the time to those who secure a place at the event.
