Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at what it’s like to be a photographer covering New York City’s Fashion Week 2012. Racked writes,
Photographer Astrid Stawiarz regularly works for the Wall Street Journal and the New York Post, but when Fashion Week rolls around, she’s on full-time Getty Images duty, shooting front-row celebrities and pre-show atmosphere for the photo agency. We shadowed her earlier this week as she captured the action at Osklen and Badgley Mischka. Above, watch her dodge paparazzi and security guards in her quest for the perfect shot.
Stawiarz notes that, just as in many other types of photography, shooting photos deep inside fashion week often depends more on who you know rather than what you know. You could be the best photographer in the world, but if you don’t know the right people inside the venues, you may find it very difficult to get the shots you’re looking for.
