While Anna Wintour, Ryan Lochte, Jessica Alba and more attended shows during New York Fashion Week, the rest of the world was left to see the designs that walked down the catwalk through images taken by photographers at the end of the runway.

When clicking through the photographs online, they seem elegant, even peaceful. You'd never guess that there is actually well over a hundred photographers at the end of the runway, in what is called "The Pit," shouting at models and pushing each each in an attempt to get the best shot.

After watching these photographers season after season, we had to hear more about what it's really like to shoot in the photographers' pit. Watch the video above in which we follow Getty Images Entertainment photographer Frazer Harrison at the Jenny Packham and Naeem Khan shows during fashion week.
