Photographer
Shoot landscape with wide angle
Shoot portrait with portrait lenses

Paparazzi
Shoot landscape with super tele - they're not interested in the landscape actually...
Shoot portrait with kit lenses - cos if smudged by fingerprints or scratched by fingernails, cheap to replace.
Shoot at iso 1600 and above - grains are gains

the name of Paparazzi was originated from a movie

from what I know, basically, they are two types of Paparazzi, one appear on whatever places where the celebrities will hand out.. these types of Paparazzi are mostly welcomed, they get the celebrities the exposure they need. these Paparazzi does not specific any targets, as long the targets are popular figures in the public eyes.

another type Paparazzi has specialize targets, they will study their subject very well, will stalk their subject everywhere they go, to hunt for exclusive newsworthy images.

hope these answer your questions.

these are not Paparazzi, Paparazzi only shoot public figures, news worthy photos.

Don't think any Paparazzi will want to waste time here.

you can read the so-titled book to gain an insight into the life of a paparazzi

it is not an easy job, and it is slightly different from the usual definition of photographer..

quite an interesting book actually, i think it is by peter howe, i have it back in singapore

I am Paparock, not Paparazzi. hehe..

Paparazzi will do anything to get the shot, be it using grainy ISO 6400 settings or burst the flash bulb shooting like a machine gun etc.

Hi TS, if you're a celebrity:

Photographers are people who shoot you in professional studios for magazine advertisements.

Paparazzies are people who shoot you from on top a hill behind thick bushes while you are walking on a beach in the Carribean with your secret gf and sell them to gossip magazines.
