The Outside View: How Tech Has Robbed Photographers of Power and Given it to Influencers

My daughter recently turned 12 and as part of the celebrations we watched R.J. Cutler’s 2009 documentary, “The September Issue.” Not exactly a typical choice for a coming-of-age film but still one that threw past and present into stark contrast.
As the documentary unfolded, it dawned on me just how much publishing and technology have moved on in the last nine years. None of the staff at Vogue was seen using smartphones. I tried to imagine watching it through my daughter’s eyes.
In one scene, Anna Wintour is waiting to view potential cover shots of Sienna Miller by Mario Testino. The team must wait to download large files, then print off the images from the shoot. Although the technology was already there, it was clunky and slow in comparison to today. We were looking at what is fast becoming history: Analogue fashion photography.
In less than a decade, the arrival of the smartphone and its high-tech capabilities has completely revolutionized photography and publishing. Nine years ago, Vogue was a fashion authority. Today, Instagram is. The hashtag Fashion Week has 15 million posts attached to it, #AW18 has 533,000 and counting.
We’re also sharing more photos than ever, 350 million per day on Facebook alone. Where

Meet the Superfans Who Camp Outside Kate Middleton’s Hospital Before Every Royal Baby Birth

Terry Hutt knows when he would like Kate Middleton to welcome her third child –April 30, which will be his 84th birthday.

For the third royal baby birth in a row, the ultimate royal superfan is in position opposite the now-famous doors of the private Lindo Wing of St. Mary’s Hospital in London — just as he did for the births of Prince George and Princess Charlotte.

Hutt and a group of his fellow dedicated fellow enthusiasts have been camped along a wall of the hospital since late Monday, April 9, when signs were erected to ban street parking.   

Left to right: Terry Hutt, Maria Scott and John Loughrey outside St. Mary’s Hospital in London on April 13, 2018.

During the day, Hutt says he wears his signature Union Jack suit because “people like seeing it,” but it is “well wrapped up at night.”

Alongside him are John Loughrey, 63, from London, and Maria Scott, 46, and her daughter Amy Thompson, 17, from Newcastle-upon-Tyne. Scott hopes for a St. George’s Day birthday (April 23) or one coinciding with Queen Elizabeth’s birthdate on April 21. 

Loughrey says he prefers the name Philip Michael (for Prince Philip and Kate’s father Michael Middleton) or Georgina, as a nod to a Spencer ancestor on Harry’s maternal side — or Elizabeth (for the Queen). There’s one thing the trio are agreed upon, though: “The most important thing is a healthy baby and a healthy mother.”

Terry Hutt and Margaret Tyler on Terry’s 80th birthday in 2015 awaiting the birth of Princess Charlotte.

The gang and their friends will be there “rain or shine” to the end, they vow. “Once you’re in it, there’s no going back,” says Scott. “I would kick myself if I go back home and she has it the next day.”

Terry Hutt and Margaret Tyler awaiting the birth of Prince George in 2013.

Last time, when they were waiting for aorund two weeks for Charlotte to be born (she arrived on May 2, 2015), Prince William and Kate’s office sent some coffee and pastries to the campers one morning.

“I’m hoping for birthday cake this year,” jokes Hutt.

Shots Fired Outside NSA Headquarters; at Least One Injured and Suspect in Custody: Reports

A suspect is in custody after shots were reportedly fired Wednesday morning outside the headquarters of the National Security Agency in Fort Meade, Maryland, leaving at least one person injured, according to multiple reports.

“NSA police and local law enforcement are addressing an incident that took place this morning at one of NSA’s security vehicle entry gates,” the NSA said in a statement shortly after the incident. “The situation is under control and there’s no ongoing security or safety threat.”

The incident happened just before 7:30 a.m., NBC Washington reports.

The driver of a black SUV allegedly tried to ram a security gate at the entrance to the NSA’s sprawling campus, the Associated Press reports.

NSA police, the FBI and local law enforcement responded to the incident.

Authorities were seen surrounding a handcuffed man on the ground immediately afterward, CBS News reports.

Aerial footage obtained by NBC Washington appeared to show a black SUV with bullet holes in its windshield that looked to have crashed into a concrete barrier.

Fort Meade garrison spokeswoman Cheryl Phillips confirmed by phone that one person was injured, and the person was taken to the hospital, the LA Times reports.

The White House said in a statement that President Trump had “been briefed on the shooting at Ft. Meade.”

“Our thoughts and prayers are with everyone that has been affected. We will continue to provide updates as they become available,” the statement added.

Authorities are investigating. It is unclear who was shot and why the SUV was at the entrance.

PEOPLE’s calls to the NSA police, NSA and FBI were not immediately returned.

Thom Sweeney Opens First Store Outside the U.K. in New York

NEW YORK — Thom Sweeney is making a statement with its first U.S. store.
The London-based brand that got its start as a bespoke maker in 2006, today will take the wraps off a 3,000-square-foot store at 362 West Broadway in SoHo — its first unit outside its home country.
The store stocks the brand’s ready-to-wear — which it started producing in 2013 — and has a large room dedicated to fittings for its signature made-to-measure and custom garments. It also features a special cutting room where a U.K.-based cutter will visit once a month to tend to clients along with a bar and lounge areas to encourage customers to stay a while.
“We think it stands out because there’s nothing else in the area like it,” said Thom Whiddett, who founded the brand with Luke Sweeney.
The two men met while they were both working for British tailor Timothy Everest — Whiddett as an apprentice and Sweeney as the head of the made-to-measure department. They decided to team to create the Thom Sweeney label, setting up shop in a small apartment in Mayfair, where they took private orders.
In 2009, they opened a bespoke studio in a former art gallery on Weighhouse Street, followed

Carbon38 Steps Outside the Gym With a Boost in RTW

Carbon38 has dipped a toe in its own branded line of activewear but the next step in its evolution calls for ready-to-wear pieces that its customers can wear beyond the gym.
The company has experimented with rtw in the past, inserting a lace dress or culotte here and there within its in-house releases, but its newest offering is its fullest collection to date. The line builds on the company’s January partnering with Jonathan Simkhai in its first collaboration with a designer in a bid to push the boundaries of what activewear looks like and what day parts it can be applied to, founder Katie Warner Johnson said. That came in the form of peplum dresses and red leggings, for example.
“It speaks to the narrative of this woman and how she’s getting dressed,” Warner Johnson said.
To be sure, the company isn’t forgetting its roots in activewear, along with the many brands it carries, such as Alo Yoga, Spiritual Gangster, Free People, Ivy Park, Michi and Norma Kamali.
“I think we don’t give Spandex itself enough credit in that it is a super human product,” said Warner Johnson. “[Rtw] feels like the right jump to make because it’s what our customers are asking for.”
