Hey You

While photographing the street preachers this pie-eyed gentleman came strolling by screaming something about “get the fuck off my beach” and similar phrases. At one point he yelled at me to “get your bastards out of here”. I explained to him I was my own bastard and had nothing to do with the street preachers being on his beach. As his anger escalated he started pointing and screaming at me, so I just had to go in for the shot. If you would like to view a larger version you can check out my deviantART or Flickr accounts.

Yea... It is amazing how mad people can get at you when you are taking photos. I have not had any issues with any officials like police of fire and I believe that is because they are watching their asses and me being a firefighter does help me out a lot.

This drunken guy here went on to tell me I better have a model release if I plan on publishing the photo, and that he'd sue me. I told him to check out the 1st amendment ;)

Unfortunately, you do have to be careful there though. That same threat is actually how I got my picture removed from a website(which was basically promoting disordered eating.) They kept my measurements and name, but did take down my picture If you were taking pictures for a paper, it might be different, but people do have the right to protect their image from being exploited. :-/


I do doubt that he needs to protect his image though :P

There are also differences because your photo was a modeling photo and not shot in a public place. I am also sure it was in no way news worthy event.

A woman was thrown in jail for hitting me at the event before this one... I guess some folks really feel threatened by the ole camera. I think this guy was just mad when he found out he was going to hell and took it out on me, fortunately he didn't hit me too ;)

Thank you :)

I basicly only photograph street and political subjects. Why are you looking for shots of children in that age group?

I saw him a few days ago. He eyed me but did not come over to confront me as he has in the past.
