A Bute photographer took part in a shoot at London Fashion Weekend recently as part of a group of students from West College Scotland.

Abbie Rodger was among 21 HND photography students who took part in a series of lectures about runway fashion photography and who subsequently photographed two top shows at the event as guests of Canon Professional Cameras.

“Being from a quiet place like the Isle of Bute, the opportunity to shoot at London Fashion Weekend was amazing,” Abbie said.

“Big thanks to West College Scotland for making it all possible. It was an unforgettable experience.”

Tutor Robert Tabor added: “This was a unique, glamorous and challenging experience for our students. Seeing West College Scotland photography students rub shoulders with the world’s leading photographers and produce such professional results has been such an amazing experience.”

Matt Beard from Canon Professional Cameras noted: “West College Scotland have done so well, it was great to see both their skills and enthusiasm – this will I am sure boost their CVs and their employability as photographers in the future.”
