GettyVIP on Instagram is where you can go behind the scenes at the world's biggest entertainment events to get the photographer's point of view. 

We show you the preparation that goes in to these events, the production on the night and introduce you to some of our best loved photographers.

An event like the Oscars requires months of planning and preparation and our photographers flew from all over the U.S to Hollywood early last week.

It started out as a wet week in Los Angeles as the red carpet was rolled out and giant Oscar statues were erected.

It's not just the stars who want to look their best on the red carpet. Our photographers and assignment editors also need to make sure they scrub up well. And as you will see, many of our photographers are quite the fashionistas!

Photographer Dimitrios Kambouris posted this image three days before the event proving that preparation is key to success!

Jamie McCarthy was on assignment to cover the Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscars Party along with Dimitrios Kambouris. They certainly made a dapper duo. Who do you think wore their suit best?

Oscars Day arrives!
A large scale event like the Oscars brings together many of our photographers which is an opportunity to spend a little more time together. Which they certainly enjoy...

Oscars day has arrived! Lisa Marie is disappointed that the rain has followed her from London to L.A. and hopes the dark clouds will disappear!

It's not often the photographers get the cameras turned on them, but they look like they enjoy having their picture taken too!

And then it's all over for another year and the photographers get to bed in the early hours of Monday morning.
