Earlier in the week, I went out with Janelle and Joshen to take some street photos of the participants coming out of the fashion shows. Seeing that I prepped for this moment, I had camera in hand and took pictures of the most fashionable to the best of my ability. Here are the results...
I feel I did a decent job, seeing these people actually posed for these photos, unlike most of the subjects I shot before who would walk out of the way of a picture. After our photo session, we decided to keep it moving and hopped in a free cab downtown.
Outside of photography, I recently completed a gig off of Craigslist, working with international pop singer, Heather Schmid; who is an extremely nice person. My main job was to cover the fashion shows she was attending and be her main cameraman, following her to each event and getting footage of her interacting with the press and being fabulous. She was nice enough to invite my girlfriend to one of the shows, which she appreciated. Here is a quick video I made capturing the essence of Fashion Week.
Overall, I had a great time being in the ambiance of Fashion Week. Though I wasn't the subject of the photos and video, being in the atmosphere makes you feel important, especially when you have the access to go backstage and see the models and the looks that nobody else has the chance to see. I hope I have the opportunity to do this again and relive the creative rush that is the fashion world.
