Some photogs are a-holes...

Postby marokero » May Thu 06, 2004 7:21 pm

The title says it all. I was out doing a casual shoot of a client, and coming round a corner on one of my favorite spots there were two photographers (with 100-400 Canon lenses I suppose) just chatting. So I decided to pose my clients on a wall in my usual spot, when suddenly one of the photogs yells at me saying "WTF are you doing in my spot?? GTF OUT OF MY WAY!" And I was like "What's your problem lady?" And she goes on about if I ever get in her way again, :blah :blah :blah Oh yeah, I'm really shaking in my boots because of her threats :dt I kept my cool, didn't want to go "Alberto hates the Brazilian federal police" on that bitch in front of my clients :D I just moved across the street so as to not expose my clients to that poor excuse of a photographer. After shooting across the street I looked back at my spot and the lady was no longer there, so we went back to shoot there. I saw her leaving the area and I stared her down and yelled to her "Are you done now?" :hi bitch?? I didn't actually curse her, I thought about it. Anyway, some other photogs that were there and witnessed her yelling too were baffled why she went off like that, a simple "excuse me for a minute" and I would've gladly wait across the street shooting another scene. Some people are just rude. Must be a New York thing you know? :hitme

I would've said: "I don't see your name on this spot."
We all have a little sin that needs venting,
virtues for the rending and laws and systems and stems are ripped
from the branches of office, do you know where your post entails?
Do you serve a purpose, or purposely serve?

I would have asked what the f@ck she was going to take pics of on a wall with 100-400mm lens. Grain?

Not a professional, not really a photographer, just a rude person with a camera ....
besides since when to public places belong to someone?
IGNORE, not worth the blood pressure rise nor a verbal reparte (only worth a single digit rise) ! :dt (never knew why we had that smiley... do now )

Not a NY thing just a rude and angry person thing.

Thanks guys, I know it's not a NY thing - I'm from NY :D Plain rude people, I think she was one of those paparazzi/stalker type that was after some celebrity... these whacks give us photogs a bad rep.

John, I saw how many of you put your cat's pictures as yor avatars, I thought I'd do the same for mine :)

Will, I think I grew used to NY rudeness but that lady was asking for trouble... if only the clients weren't there. I never, ever would get violent with a woman (I leave that up to my girl :D), but I'd make an exception just for her. I'd whip out my new Gitzo cf monopod, smack'er upside the head and leave a nice 1/4-20 screw inprint on her forehead :D

You should've taken HER picture so you'd have it for future reference! That would've either confused the hell out of her or pissed her off. Then you could post that picture on the web. If she's in a public place and you write up an "Editorial" on shooting in public, you could use the picture without a model release.
