We see celebrity nightlife photographer Patrick McMullan’s name plastered all over party publications like Page Six, Guest of a Guest, and New York Magazine, so we were excited when a recent Q&A with him popped up in Gotham Magazine.McMullan, who has been documenting New York’s social scene for decades, told the magazine that today, anyone can be a nightlife photographer.
All you need is a camera, or even a phone will do. I think it is always best to let people know you want to take a picture, for best results, but candids are so much fun. It’s also good to tell them how the camera works in case it’s a slow shutter.
McMullan also shared a composition tip:
A great party photograph has interesting people wearing interesting clothes and shows people having fun! It also makes you do a double take.
Check out the full Q&A at Gotham Magazine.
