This is what it looks like for the runway shows…..inside the Mercedes-Benz Tent.  300 PHOTOGRAPHERS.  Each is allowed one square foot of space.  If the “PIT BOSS” catches your camera covering another photographers camera………you get tossed out!

I was lucky!  I got to sit in the VIP BOX!

 The other photographers just glared at me!

Enjoy the SLIDE SHOW………..I made many new friends this year.

Out on the plaza at Lincoln Center….it is a lot more fun.  Splash and dash….glitz and glitter.  It is the place I prefer to be.  And the other photographers are a lot more friendly.  We do have fun!

NY FASHION WEEK • 2014• Celebrities……on Parade

There are over 50 celebs here……….too many to bore you with their names………so I’ll let you figure out who they are.  Andie Mac Dowell is easy to recognize.

Just CLICK ON ONE and he or she or he/she will fill your space.

Then there was Joan Rivers……lots of designers from Project Runway…….who doesn’t adore Mondo. The star of “Orange is the New Black”.  Miss Jay from Tyra’s show.  The Hilton sisters……Linda Fargo from Bergdorf’s……..Barbara Walters, Sarah Jessica Parker……..and, of course, Brad the stylist.

NEW YORK FASHION WEEK •Fall 2014• Paparazzi

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!

IMG_1227

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.
