Everyone asks me what it’s like to photograph FASHION WEEK. It can be fun. It can be crazy. Since I do it for the fun…..I am competing with the Professional Paparazzi who are doing this for their living. Just stay out of their way. You will get trampled as they chase down a celebrity or model. They are ruthless.
Here are a few photos of the ones I actually interact with. The real”nastys” are not included.
Me and my trusty little Panasonic. And I dressed “chic and trendy”? WAH! But my cashmere gloves do keep me warm and allow me to push that little button that snaps the photo. Hey, wind chill was degrees BELOW!
Inside the tent…….where the RUNWAY SHOWS take place…….these are the PAPARAZZI. I am siting next to them in the VIP booth with my little camera. They are squeezed into the back wall. If the “floor boss” catches one of them hogging more space…..they get thrown out on their ear..
I just sit there in the private booth with a glass of champagne…….. and grin!
CLICK ON……….there are some cuties and a few nightmares.
This is BILL CUNNINGHAM…the most famous photographer in New York. He wears this little blue jacket year round …..[ the street cleaners in Paris wear this little jacket]. He travels only by bicycle and covers all the fashion events in NY. The New York Times prints his photos twice a week.
