Photographer Angela Pham is right up in the fashion scene, capturing events and nightlife for Billy Farrell Agency. Here, Angela (above, top photo) shares the stories behind her favorite shots.
Iris Apfel and Alan Cumming at W magazine's 40th Anniversary Dinner, November 2012"This photo of Alan Cumming and Iris Apfel was shot at an intimate dinner at Rose Bar in Gramercy Park Hotel. As an event photographer, celebrity shots are obligatory and can begin to feel prosaic. I particularly like this one because a) Ms. Apfel is a legend, b) the candid expressions and c) the ambient lighting."
Sophie Theallet Spring 2013 show"This is a shot from Sophie Theallet’s runway show at Milk Studios. If you ever meet Ms. Theallet, you'll find that she exudes that particular brand of elegance and sexiness that only French women employ. This photo embodies both Ms. Theallet's creative and emotional traits."
Houghton Spring 2013 presentation"This is a backstage shot from a show at The Standard. This photo resonates with me because the model's discomfort is so palpable. Whenever I wear earrings, even small studs, I feel like my ears are going to wither away. But this model is going to handle it like a pro and with a smile, so I congratulate her."
