Photography ABOUT Photographers

The following is a series of funny and unusual situations in which photographers (and their gear) find themselves, in search for that all-around perfect shot. Heavy equipment, crazy set-ups, impossible positions, hostile public, cars and elements - and the list goes on. I remember going on some extreme photo hunts myself, the satisfaction of obtaining the best possible picture - we're sure you had similar experiences. Send us your most interesting photography adventure... like some of the hilarious ones in this gallery:

Illustration to one of the "blonde" jokes?

Most of the images came from Russian & Chinese Photography forums, such as Alexey Trunov's compilation on Penta-Club.ru and from CameraUnion (China). Other were hunted down from the web or through emails, without definite attribution info. For such pictures we ask the viewers to let us know who the original photographers are, so that we could include this information.

I think so. Looks like an advertisment of a camera with powerful zoom.

nilbaedThe last one must be true: when the 110 film size was introduced, around 1981, we received in our lab a lot of films to process with the same kind of pictures: an ear (blurred because too close) and a nice landscape, the one located behind the photographer...

Photographers often are rude people.Just for their good shot they can do silly things.I have a bad experience about that.

Sports photogs are pack mules first and artists second, and Canon (big white lenses) owns the market.

The guy with the glasses and the printer hanging on his neck actually works at the Fontana di Trevi in Rome, Italy.
I've been there several times and I used to talk a lot with the guy who said me he's been working there for the last 8 years and this is how (through all these years) he is living.
He uses to work there with his wife.
