I was walking back to my hotel the other night and I came across this DKNY fashion shoot. It was a big old hullabaloo with a crew of about 9 people and a bunch of pretentious DKNY manager-types standing around holding clipboards and scowling.
I started taking shots. Everything was cool until a jerky guy with a clipboard and a scowl came over and said, “Sorry you can’t do that we have a permit.”
I said, “But this is a public street in New York.”
“But we have a permit.”
“This is for advertising DKNY, right?” I prodded.
“Well I get over 3 million visitors to my photography blog per month. So either 3 million people will hear me say something nice about DKNY or something mean about DKNY.”
“We have a permit, sir,” rolling his eyes at the word “blog.”
So anyway, if you have a choice between DKNY and something else that might not be made by elitists that hold clipboards and speak with faux British accents, choose the other.
Are you leaving town for a photoshoot? Need a convienent airport parking? Make parking reservations for an speedier check in and get discount JFK airport parking reservations. It’s the only way to travel!
