Thread: GWCs head to the beach

    Default GWCs head to the beach

    GWCs head to the Beach

    Foreign workers snap pics of girls in swimwear at beaches and print them out



    Many foreign workers are flocking to the beaches in Singapore to ogle at girls in swimwear and take photos of them. According to STOMPer Denniz, they even print out the pictures of the girls.

    This has become a matter of concern for some Singaporeans who have set up a Facebook group to warn people of these foreign workers' insidious activities.

    It is no longer safe for your daughter, sister, girlfriend or wife to hang out at the beaches, says STOMPer Denniz. He says:

    "You can notice this especially during weekends and public holidays.

    "The foreign workers are armed with cameras or camera handphones which they whip out to snap images of ladies sun-tanning or just hanging around.

    "They do it on the sly but it is easily noticeable.

    "In the main picture, you can see how they are positioned while 'posing' for the camera with a gap in between them. The guy with the camera phone is actually taking pictures of the girls that can be seen in between that gap.

    "They also put their phones on video mode and record every girl who comes along.

    "Once at VivoCity, I saw 3 foreign workers printing pictures of girls, which they took at the beach.

    "Who knows what they do with these pictures back at their hostels.

    "I am sure many other frequent beach-goers have witnessed this as well. I fear for our female friends and relatives.

    "This has become such a pressing issue that a Facebook group has been set up to raise awareness. Hopefully something can be done about this."

    So what's the diff between these guys and those in PnP? These guys are smart enough to do it for free.

    the workers... even took video of my models while mua was working on them at botanics. Stood straight in front, pretended to lean against the railing, pretended to sms but video was on! Lame as well as irritating as to how desperate people can be.

    Bro... i seldom want to accuse people of anything, but I think you are purposely insulting many of the decent shooters who post on PnP.

    Correct me if i'm wrong.

    Like that the organiser can just tell them off not to stand too near. Was shooting street at haji lane last week and saw 3 ladies standing at the end of the street and I want to capture them with long shadow casted from car headlight - alas cant cos GWC come with PNS and flash at them, they run away

    I've read this post a few days ago...

    I don't know how others feel
    But I think IF the girls don't mind, it would not be offensive.

    pls la..don't talk until so ambiguous. You think they doing street photography? still need to ask if the girl ok then is fine. do you think the girls know? i am not stereotyping ppl who use HP or non-DSLR to shoot street photo but this one is damn clear la. since you say until if the girl don't mind then is not offensive,i repose the qn to you. If your daughter,gf or wife get shoot in secret and then these ppl print out or put in their hp. how do you feel? i am sure the girls won't mind cause they won't even know.

    There is a diff btw outright wrong and right.if everything we talk until so ambiguous..i really wonder what we will be teaching our next generation. there will be self justification for every single action. and nothing is technically ever wrong.

    i think you might be being a bit discriminatory here.

    i have nothing against dannysantos, i like some of his work, but even he admits that majority of his street photography is of pretty girls that catch his eye.

    so how do you differentiate this situation here from that example, which is lauded in clubsnap? he posts it on his flickr, and website, they put it up in their hp and camera.

    i'm just playing the devil's advocate here, but if you think about it, it is like the soldier who ran 50 steps laughing at the soldier who ran 100 steps. just a matter of degree, if we must show such a strong reaction.

    ahh i love his work. well like i say no need to be so ambiguous here. if danny is even reading this...his works are very clear cut. I don't think he does things like what these ppl are doing. the motives are outright diff. whether nude photo are art or porn is really depending on how it is presented right? i don't think danny gets a few friends and stand around the bikini babes just to take their photos.i don't think it is very edifying for the girls.

    come on ..don't tell me these 5-6 bangla in the photo are trying to do street photography.

    well, my point is, the guy producing the best "nude art" photos, might be the one with the dirtiest mind.

    i have seen pretty good photos being produced by people with a downright horrible reputation, when it comes to behaviour and morals. since then, i don't look at someone's nice photos and give him the benefit of the doubt. what you do in reality, and what you shoot, the two usually have a connection, but there are times when the connection breaks. and somehow, if you ask me, these are worst of them all.

    not referring to anyone in particular.. just pushing forth a point here.

    i think the person who takes these photos but doesn't do anything untoward is far superior in my book than the person who takes nice nice photos, acts like a gentleman, but seizes loopholes and chances to be the ultimate wolf in sheep's clothing.
