Austin Photographer Patrick Meredith

want to piss a photographer off?

with 4 comments

When someone is taking photos please do your best to be a jackass.

  • Look directly into the camera in every frame, especially if you aren’t the one being photographed.
  • Wave your arms in the air in the background while looking into the camera
  • Make stupid faces when you see a camera

Not that I would have used this photo anyway, but this guy has single handedly ruined more than 10 photos out of the 50-60 I took last night as part of the Nike Human Race event here in Austin. It looks like he followed me around….I bet he is that guy who you see at the bar that hits on you….Then when you get up the next day and upload your photos to your computer he is in the background of nearly every shot, looking like he is either A) going to kill you B) having the best night of his life pretending he is your friend.

Keep up the good work johnny smith

  2. Let me restate something here….
    I also love stepping into random peoples photos. But when I see someone seriously working with a bunch of cameras/lenses/flashes around their necks (in my case, I had 2 cameras out), I try not to be a jackass.
    ah shit nevermind

  3. I understand. I only try to be the “jackass” when I see TV news crews.

  4. tends to be a lot of the people doing that in races are doing it try and get a ‘good’ photo for themselves. You probably looked like the guys who shoot the photos to sell to the participants…
