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.
