Star Gazing: tiff.’13

September 10, 2013

So now you know my “guilty plea­sure”… the Toron­to Inter­na­tion­al Film Fes­ti­val! And with my track record, it seems like I’ve start­ed a tra­di­tion for every oth­er year. I had start­ed tak­ing these “legit­i­mate paparazzi” pho­tos of the stars, as they attend the movie that their pro­mot­ing, back in 2009. The next one was in 2011. It was cer­tain­ly a delight to see these movie stars in the flesh and real­ize that they are cer­tain­ly like you and me!

There is cer­tain­ly a rush when you see the sleek black Escalade/Cadillac/Audi SUV dri­ve up. Every­one reach­es for the camera(s), iPads or mobile devices and then…the hol­ler­ing begins. “Julia, over here!” “Julia, turn around please!” “Julia, one more look back!” And as all that com­mo­tion goes on, each pho­tog­ra­ph­er has the chal­lenge to snap their best images of the celebri­ty amidst block­ing views of heads, mobile devices, hands and arms stretch­ing to get “the shot”. Quite enter­tain­ing! Essen­tial­ly, the trick is to get there as ear­ly as pos­si­ble and be the first at the front line at the gate so you won’t run into those chal­lenges.

Last night’s head­lin­er was cer­tain­ly Julia Roberts as she grace­ful­ly greet­ed the fans and smiled for every­one to snap away. Well, tiff, it was fun! See you in 2015!
