MINDEN, AMIT TUDNI AKARTÁL A STREET STYLE FOTÓZÁSRÓL 1. rész – Hogyan fotózz? – PARIS FASHION WEEK

well, I don’t know how they’ve managed to fit this elevator in, but you barely have room on the stairs.

.

.

Think I’ve got the same room last year as well.

The luggage is as wide as the door haha Tiny room, but really beautiful.

As you see, I’m at Paris.

It’s Fashion Weeks’ time here, at least the Women one.

I want to show you the Fashion Week here and Street Photography, so come with me.

They started the Fashion Week a few days ago, I’ve got here just now, they had beautiful weather so far, but now it’s really crappy, rainy and dark.

it is what it is, we have to keep rolling and take some shots.

And I have to climb back somehow.

.

This is my smootie from yesterday The LOEWE show was at 9:30, I’ve missed that, bit too early for me.

.

Paris is so beautiful, I could stop at every corner to take a picture or video, but I just can’t, because I have 5 mins to get there, actually, I should’ve been there already.

It’s worth it to be there 15-20 mins before the show, because people start to show up and there is a good chance to take good pictures.

In general, a photoshooting like this is about: we get there, take some pictures and afterwards, we have 15-20 mins of break, when the show is going and when the show is over we shoot them again and move on to the next location.

Every show is at a different spot of the city, Fortunately it is not raining so we are good The city has it’s vibe and mood, good for the pictures, as you can see.

Some photographers are already here.

Sorry, these were random Asians with their bags and designer clothes, they take some photos, then probs sell their products back home, saying how popular it is over here in Europe, saw them before at Pitti.

.

so fake! Got here in the meantime, hope I’m not too late.

We’re having a break because it’s showtime in there.

Not much happening out here, but once the show is over, every photographer will be after the models and Instagrammers, stars, etc.

Main thing is to look good, so we take pictures of you! I have some friends over here, such as Claudio here.

He is one of my oldest friends here, he takes photos for Getty and he was one of the first ones who took a picture of me a few years ago.

He helps me out when I get lost or something, he has a big routine.

Adam is one of the best street style photographers, he is one of the main reasons why I started to take pictures.

Check him out, because he is soo good! Worth to look around and see how every photographer works, Adam for example is heading away from the crowd and shoots separately.

That is why his pictures are good End of the first day, it’s like a warm-up for everybody.

Was a cloudy day, but it’s good for the pictures, so no bright lights, no shadows, means much better photos, good for street style and pictures of buildings.

Now heading to eat something, then I might take some more pictures or head back to the hotel.

We’re up all day, sometimes one spot is 40 mins away from an other show, outside all day even it is rainy or sunnyWe’re up all day, sometimes one spot is 40 mins away from an other show, outside all day even it is rainy or sunny we walk and stand a lot 8-10 hours a day, then edit when we’re back in the hotel, so if anybody thought street photography is easy, well, it’s not.

Second day just started here, was pretty difficult to get out of bed, since you’re on your feet for 10 hrs a day, not much to eat or drink in the meantime, raining constantly and when you’re ont he street and shooting again, you don’t feel that tired, but mornings are soooo difficult.

Been thinking about street style’s advantages and disadvantages, advantage is like seeing the World, travelling around.

Although we don’t see much, because we’re constantly working.

Not much time to be a tourist, but we have a chance to see famous people.

Like Bella Hadid just walked by, had a chance to take a picture of her.

See beautiful outfits, dresses what you can not see regulaarlyLike Bella Hadid just walked by, had a chance to take a picture of her.

See beautiful outfits, dresses what you can not see regulaarly This work improves your creativity, problem solving skills, etc.

So many of us on the streets, like 100-200, you have seconds to take a good shot, so you have to be on point and fast, in order not to let go of the moment.

Disadvantages during FW, prices are super high, but it’s the same everywhere.

Women Fashion Weeks are the craziest For example during Men's FW in Milan, back in Jan was around a 100 euros/night, but here, during the Women's FW it’s 260/night, almost three times as much.

.

.

.

sorry about the screaming in the back.

.

.

Same goes to the flight tickets, a round trip is around 30-60€, but during FW it’s around 170-300€ , more than 3 times.

.

.

Winter FW is difficult because of the snow and the rain and the cold, but Summer FW is super warm and you get sunburnt.

.

.

If it’s stressful? Good question, been thinking a lot, somehow calming, because no one is pushing you, on the other hand, those good moments are super stressful and competing with others.

There are a lot of amateurs.

.

.

how to say.

.

.

hobby photographer.

.

.

maybe 20-30 official ones only who get paid.

Like Adam Katz Sinding (@aks) or Jonathan Daniel Pryce (@garconjon) There are only a few who you are really looking up.

They mostly works for GQ or VOGUE.

When people get out of the show, photographers basically run to them and fight for the best positions and possible pictures.

Many times everybody ends up with the same pictures and no too good quality, same pose, not a good unique picture.

Street style photography point is that the object/person acts natural.

Try to make it look like it’s the least posing picture.

Garconjon has many pictures organised and taken, but not where the show was held, but one or two streets away.

In order to be a good street style photographer, you need to have a good style, a good point of view.

It’s pretty difficult to get a job, because there are many photographers who wants to work for a magazine, so they want you to work for free many times.

.

.

Photographers got upset because of it a few years ago, you can still find articles under the #nofreephotos hashtag.

It’s pretty expensive for us, to spend some days here at the FW, so you need to figure it out how to get paid to cover your expenses.

That’s it for now, to be continued.
