Box Eight Fashion : Refocus, Photo Op Denied

The final night of fashion and photography featured 5 designers and photographers at the Box Eight studios. The "photo op" was cut short by Box Eight founder and photographer Peter Gurnz. Invited and fully credentialed media photographers, with coded wrist bands, were told not to take any photos of the models and fashions by Future Heretics, although taking photos of the empty set was permitted.
iPhonies clicked on.
Two other fashion photographers turned their lights to the absolute lowest setting so other invited media photographers would not take any images of them and the fashions.
Not all of the fashion photographers were so media unfriendly. Fashion photographer extraordinaire Ben Cope kept his lights on high and didn't seem to mind the coverage.
