I took the Sex and the City test, it’s on my Facebook – I’m CharlotteI used to watch Sex and the City with one of my best friends, my sister Crista. I was older than Carrie, she was younger. So I am a fan and was excited to shoot the premiere, but being from Philly and reluctant to give up a full day for vacation, I took a half day from my day job. Bad move, see these people, they put their name on the Photographer’s list at 4AM!! Me I got there at 3PM (Thanks to the Amtrak train breaking down) and I was #52. It was a big premiere people flew in from around the world.

I should have worn shorts, although I know that almost no one shooting in NYC ever does. The uniform is dark jeans, dark shirt, dark shoes, unless your well Demis
Security was tight, the dog sniffer was on site
The pen. I always bring my ladder when I shoot in NYC. I may have been in the second row, but I was in the first pen which holds the best photographers and the talent usually poses longer than the last pen which was about a Philly city block away. (Did I mention photographers uniform, dark, dark, dark OK black. The color they don’t want the SJP’s dress to be)
Sometimes for the unrecognizable talent, they have their PR person carry a placard with their name. This is something that should be done in Philadelphia.

The hazard of shooting second row, note the photographers flash head in the foregroundDid you see the “Devil Wears Prada”, which is by the same director as “Marley & Me”? Well it was based on these two people, Andre Leon Tally and Anna Wintour. When Jennifer Hudson won her Oscar last year, it was Andre Leon Tally that suggested she wear that space age outfit. Here a much thinning Jen blows a few kisses to the photographers, er the fans that will see the photos taken.

Classy Cynthia Nixon. I wish she brought her girlfriend on the Pink Carpet.
I think Caroline Rhea has had some sex, she’s pregnant

I don’t think I have ever seen Ashley Olsen lift her head, I barely recognized her
She has some scary friend Newest Gossip Girl, Lydia Hearst (yes of that family)
The fans braved the weather for a glimpse of their stars, and they were not disappointed.

The end…my disclaimer, none of these photos were submitted to any agencies to be published they are here for your consumption and they are not the best shots. (Epilogue – Thanks to Amtrak, the signals were screwed up on the tracks and I was sitting on the train for almost two hours getting me home at 2AM. Then I had to edit 600 photos, finally hitting my pillow at 4:30AM. Got up and 8AM worked some more, then off to my day job. Gotta wonder sometimes if these NYC premieres are worth it, hmm you’re damn right they’re worth it!! 🙂
