I can't believe it has been a whole year since I last helped out my mate (we will call him Bob for this post) shooting the red carpet for the Sydney Film Festival. This year he could not make it at all and sent me along in his place. Yes its true; you need to be there at least an hour before the scheduled *start* of the whole shebang and then probably a good two odd hours before its all over.

Seasoned Pros just zone-out and check their phones from time to time but what is interesting is that there really is a bit of talking going on between the celebrities on 'the carpet' and the media in the corral! And of course the big celebrity of the night was Cate Blanchett and she was the main reason about a good half of the media where there for.

Of course I did not get there early because I am VERY tall and can shoot over the top of even the very LARGE photographer I did choose to stand behind. But this did make it tricky to get a shot off of Cate when she did come at a somewhat different pace and rhythm to all who had come before-and the photographers pit did go crazy!

No one actually said the things I have 'speech ballooned' them with but... everyone in the pit was very much wondering about Cate, when, if; have you got a good shot before; Cate, Cate, Cate... So I have had a bit of fun with that! Some fabulous frocks and the men by and large were very well turned out fashion wise as well; so many more shots I could have shown. Oh and April; so sorry, I just couldn't resist, and your dress was so lovely too.

Enjoy; and till next time...
