Fashion, New York Fashion Week, NYC Streetstyle

My First Take at Streetstyle Photography in New York

February 19, 2012

I have always been intrigued by photography. I love looking at portraits and “moments of life” pictures but I have always been a bit shy to try to take some myself. So far I have been practicing with landscape and architectural pictures – and New York is definitely the place to be for that! 

This past Fashion Week was my first try in shooting random people in the streets and I am glad I did it. At first, I went to the Lincoln Center by curiosity, saying to myself: “I’ll stay an hour just to look”. I ended up spending four hours in the cold, and going back as much as I could. One shot after another, I became more involved and excited. There is something special about Fashion Week: most of the people going to runway shows dress to impress and to be taken in pictures. They are very approachable and willing to collaborate with the camera. 

As the person behind the camera, it was a real pleasure to have the opportunity to explore another type of photography. My training continues and I am confident enough to say that I discovered a new passion in shooting all types of people. I will surely continue to ask people for a shot in the streets. In the meantime, Fashion Week might be over in New York but I still have a lot of good street-style pictures to share with you.
