Tommy Ton is one of the fashion world’s hottest image makers and street style photographers, and after a decade of capturing Fashion Month first for his former blog Jak & Jil, Style.Com and GQ.Com. – today the 31-year-old talented Canadian announced he is breaking away from publications to launch his own website, TommyTon.com, which officially went live on Wednesday.

Watch our exclusive behind the scenes film and see how Tommy Ton’s passionate eye and love of fashion has made him the most influential street style photographer working today. A self described “fashion paparazzi” Tommy documents the exotic trends, the colorful accessories and the stylish people at fashion month.

As Tommy explains the internet and the digital age has given people the chance to become a working professional overnight, “the fashion show is the new red carpet, everybody wants to be a part of this world, it’s not so exclusive anymore. With the whole boom of the internet and blogging and twitter, people have become so connected to each other – it’s a community that has grown so fast.”  

MODTV’s cameras captured Tommy in action from Milan to Paris fashion week and we spoke with some of his friends and fashion bloggers including Bryan Boy, Scott Schuman aka The Sartorialist, Garance Dore, fashion editor Anna Dello Russo and street style photographer Nam, StreetFSN.  What’s life of the hottest street style blogger really like?
