Shooting backstage is quite the interesting experience. I mostly try to stay out of the way of the photographers with their large flashes, cords and assistants who are always reaching for the models, calling them by name, fighting other photographers over space. Instead I look for quiet moments, beautiful moments, something in-between. I try to see what is intimate… a thought, a glance, a gaze. I always hope to see the beauty not only in the clothing, especially when you are talking about Ralph Lauren, but also the beauty in the person I’m photographing. This collection in its simplicity and understated color palette was a true look at luxury textiles and in confidence, which made it wonderfully amazing to study the collection up close and with more ease than in the brief shining moment we get on the runway.

I like this kind of photos, to know what is behind the scene. They make it more natural
Whether your back stage or in the front row, I think you always showcase the best perspective of these moments, Jamie. I’m sure it was a madhouse when you were photographing these photos; however, they have this serene moment.
stunning photos, as always.
i love that you chose black and white for this. there’s something serene and fresh in this more documentary approach. gorgeous.
Candids are harder than they look to shoot. It takes a certain boldness to shoot people off-guard and quickness to retain the spontaneity. You are a master of the candid.
