Buried in this long, smart look at Fashion Week trends is a fascinating tidbit about the financial rewards of being a street style photographer. Imran Amed of Business of Fashion writes: "Several street style bloggers told me confidentially that the competition is extremely fierce for getting the best photographs, which can then be sold on to global editions of Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar each for as little as $200, but up to $1000 or more." The stakes are forcing photographers to behave more like paparazzi as they aggressively track down well-dressed editors outside the shows. [B of F via Fashionologie]
