Have a look at the photo (below) first before flaming me if you must.



I am sure he is not an official photog because there's already 3 of them squating down before that front row. This guy is already in the front row and yet he brought along a miniature ladder and stood on top of it during 70-80% of the event.

What event was this? This was/is the Auto Babes held at Marina South. (Refer to the Events forum)

There were 5-7 photogs with me standing on an elevated platform trying to share space with one another hopefully each of us will get sufficient view of the stage. At the position where I was standing already has a human height board blocking on my left and yet this happens. The few of us were cursing and I guess it worked somehow.

Guess I'll have to equipment with rubber bands and paper bullets in future.

Okay, enough of my babbling, what's your view?

I can understand how u feel.

I be angry and mad and that is why I never go for events shoot though I am more than capable to fight for space.

Honestly there are no rules to say he cant bring a ladder and in such free for all shoot, one has to be bold.

Yes, I agree with you, but come on. This guy showed up regularly in such events and this time he's trying to get famous or what?

Well, this situation often happens to me.

Imagine when you are ready to full press the shutter button, and one photographer just come in and ending up taking his/her butt. :bsmilie:

this happen to me often, and don't know why, it's like always the same guy...:think:

anyway, heard that Singapore photographers are already very kind compare to overseas photographers. They just don't care whether you are in their vision of shot and just block you anyways.

get used to it...but if you cannot tahan, do the same thing back to him, or start shooting rubber bands at him, like you said.. :bsmilie:

I think he may very likely be a regular CS photographer ... what do you think?

Maybe the people around him (if they are in this forum) can clue us in on his ID ... Or maybe some of the photogs shooting with you may know him ...

hmm... guess he's using a d100, and a sb800 flash.

actually, if he has a ladder he can stand behind everyone else. at least have the decency not to block others. from wat i see, looks like the space in front is very limited. he could have chosen to shoot with a long lens behind the table? haiz.... :(

He isn't using a tele, a standard zoom lens.

i was one of them being a bit blocked too... not gonna name names here anyway...

just hope that next time can give and take a bit lo, at the 1st row already and still use elevated platform is a bit.. :sweat:

an NS guy came up in front of me and stood on a chair, but before he did anything, he asked if he was blocking my view, i request he moved a little to the left and he did it with a smile. :D

He came just before the show starts from the front.

Yes, that's what we learnt in National Service, Ethics, in one of the Seven Core Values.
