AP?s Deputy Editor, Mat Gallagher, made his catwalk debut, with full access to the photographer’s pit for London Fashion Week (18th-22nd Feb) at Somerset House courtesy of principle sponsor Canon.

Canon loaded Mat up with supplies, including the the latest Canon EOS 1D MkIV with the Canon EF 400mm f/2.8 and the EF 70-200mm f/2.8 plus a 2x converter. With a front row space in the photographer’s pit, boxed off by Canon, Mat was able to get a full view to the runway and take some stunning photos.
