It's a chilly morning in Paris, but the excitement in the air is tangible. The city of love is once again hosting one of the most prestigious fashion events in the world, and I am here to capture it all with my camera.
As a catwalk and backstage photographer, I have seen my fair share of fashion shows, but there's something about Paris Fashion Week that always gets my adrenaline pumping. The energy, the creativity, and the glamour are unmatched. Maybe it's the history and culture of the city, or maybe it's the fact that some of the world's top fashion designers call Paris their home.

As I approach the venue, I can feel my heart rate start to rise. I've been doing this for years, but the excitement of capturing the perfect shot never gets old. There's a sense of anticipation in the air as everyone gets ready for the show.
Models are getting their hair and makeup done, designers are putting the finishing touches on their creations, and the photographers are setting up their equipment. And within, I am aiming for the best spot on the field. I work always with a team, so that we can capture it on an immersive way. We have been working together for more than decade - well oiled machine.
Backstage is always a bit chaotic, but it's also where the real magic happens. It's here that you see the models transform from ordinary people to works of art. The stylists and designers work tirelessly to make sure that every detail is perfect, from the hair and makeup to the accessories and shoes. Every details is important and nothing gets unnoticed.

As I set up my camera, I can feel the excitement building up. This is the moment that I've been waiting for. The lights go down, the music starts to build, and the first model takes to the runway. It's like watching a beautiful dance, and I feel privileged to be a part of it.
My camera never stops clicking as each model takes to the catwalk. I'm in a state of pure focus and concentration, trying to capture every movement, every detail. It's a challenge, but it's also incredibly rewarding. I know that these images will be seen and appreciated by people all over the world.

As the show comes to an end, I feel a sense of satisfaction wash over me. I've captured some truly beautiful moments, and I know that these images will be treasured for years to come. But more than that, I feel grateful for the opportunity to do what I love. Being a catwalk photographer is not just a job for me. It's a passion, a way of life. And I can't wait to see where my lens takes me next.
