Paul Giamatti makes his was down the red carpet. Something Philly does different than NY, the the video/media/tv second are placed first, the photographers second. The problem with this the actors are tired by the time they get to the still photographers. On the otherhand there’s less of

the whoring of the last minute photos as the actor is being interview on camera and photographers shoot them, blinding them on camera. SO I don’t know which is better really. Pat Cirocchi giving us a little color on the Red CarpetI’m on a ladder, but it doesn’t help when people in front of me shoot with an extra high flash. In NYC we use a list for first come first serve, in Philly the bruts just fight for their spots. I presented the list I had to the PR but they didn’t understand, the photographers weren’t going to follow it and said it wasn’t NY. So I asked the PR to show me the set up, but she said it would be an hour before they showed up and she didn’t think we would want to stand there. I guess she doesn’t know how the pit operates. We jumped into our positions. I did get a front spot, but the poor guy who had been there first didn’t (arriving about 4PM to the Constitution Center), I was the only one willing to give up my spot. I hope he remembers who has his back. I really much prefer to shoot in NYC with the professionals.
