Never insult the photographer

Sze Wang and Karen got hitched yesterday. Yay, more members in The Drained Dads Club.

All in all, it was a pretty smooth sailing day for a photoshoot, though I must say The Church of St Mary of the Angels is quite an architectural eye-opener (and a real pain to shoot in).

Unfortunately, during dinner time, I got insulted by a guest.

Before the couple walked through the door, I was testing out my flash exposures by firing off a few stray shots at the wall.

This moron walks by and says in a condescending voice: “Hey, you practising ah?”, implying that I was an amateur on his first big assignment.

I shot back, in front of his table mates: “Please remind me not to take your photo later.” He knew he was in trouble and could only give a weak smile as he sat down.

When we came back to their table later for the group shot, I pointed at the moron and said : “Please move to the side. It’ll be easier to crop you out that way.”

A female guest laughed.

Too bad I wasn’t joking.

For goodness sake, never insult the photographer. He makes memories for others to remember you by, and he can blot you out instantly too.

  1. Hehe walau, you’re damn KL. Maybe he wasm uhm, just trying to be friendly? Haha altho I have to admit that’s probably unlikely. Scary lah you =)

  2. People like that don’t deserve to be recorded on any media. I’ve always made it clear to anyone who gives me trouble or disses me when I’m shooting that I won’t bother about them again.

    The problem is that most photographers out there act like servants/waiters and not professionals. There’s a huge difference between doing a simple service and producing a good photo every time. They think press one button very easy ah?
