A New Trend?

Maybe it’s just me, but I’d say you’ve got to be RIDICULOUSLY good looking and super cool (or just ridiculously INTO YOURSELF) to hire someone to photograph you without you knowing when and where it’s going to happen. 

Or maybe I’m just a giant dork and do too many embarrassing things that I wouldn’t want captured.   Screw that whole "capturing only the natural beauty of the person" crap they talk about on their website.   

That’s just creepy.

Is this going to be a new trend?  What are your thoughts?  Leave a note in the comments section.  I’d love to hear what you think.

WOW that is kinda creepy! I honestly love the rush of being in front of a camera and have the photographer lead the way…B/C he/she is the professional!! I rather know I’m gonna get some great shots out of it than just of me and my family sitting around and talking and not prepared for when the camera is gonna go off..

Seems this would only be affordable to the rich and famous who already have it and DON’T want it. The ultimate in photo journalism I guess. To keep it secret from the person being photographed the quality would be compromised like those blurry magazine photos shot from a mile away.I love making it personal and unique but to me this goes one step too far.

My thought on that? Ah, NO.
Call you soon!

i think it’s a bit nutty and would work for only a few lucky people. Besides, did you notice there weren’t any examples of the work…the little clipped photos were not done from a mile away by some lurking photographer. Knowing my luck, I’d be the proud owner of a shot where I’m digging at a wedgie…no thank you :)

Very freaking silly! Why someone would *want* the Paparazzi after them, I won’t understand! But I think the people that would want this, are the ones that are flex heads, voyeurs, or the overweight ones that shouldn’t be wearing crop tops and spandex….because they are all about themselves but don’t realize how laughable they are to the rest of society.
Very bizarre though, thanks for posting!

My thoughts? unhuh, not in this life. Can’t think of anything ‘candid’ I’d want to keep. If I wanted something like this I’d hand over my camera to my three year old, lol :-)

Maybe it would work for people who are uncomfortable in front of the camera so this way they don’t even know it is there? Like you meet a friend for coffee and you are laughing and enjoying yourself and the photog gets the shot of your completely natural, comfortable laugh through the window? I definitely don’t see it taking off as a trend, and it isn’t for me at all (it sort of creeps me out!), but I can see where it might be a cool idea sometimes. Thanks for the link; it was interesting!
