The purpose of this post is twofold: 1) to make fun of the selfy and 2) to seek fame and fortune by revealing our identities. Like we said three weeks ago, photojs love shameless self promotion.
The selfy. We all do it. Don’t act like you don’t walk past a mirror while on assignment and consider taking a frame of that handsome devil looking back at you. All those photojournalism students that have studied abroad definitely know what I’m talking about. Wake up in a hostel in Paris, catch yourself with that strangely perfect bedhair and your super-French striped shirt you bought yesterday in Montmartre… Why NOT take a picture as you’re walking out the door. At least take it before you wake up the two Germans that were talking quietly to each other the night before.
How the hell else are we going to keep our Facebook profiles updated with new prof pics? You could probably use the photos that other photographers take of you while you’re on assignment, but obviously their eye isn’t as perfect as your own.
And clearly the selfy is a great way to show what kind of gear we’re using. “Oh yeah, the 5D Mark II is just something I use if I forget my Leica. Here, I’ve got another photo of myself with my Leica.”
Now for the second part: unmasking the heartless bastards behind this merciless website.
Founder and editor: Taylor Glascock (middle) likes full frame camera bodies, and denying the fact that toy cameras are for hipsters. You can tweet her at: @tayloremrey.
Contributing writer: Eve Edelheit likes to talk about the semester she spent at the Danish School of Journalism, and how she secretly likes Canon more than Nikon. You can tweet her at: @eve_edelheit.
Contributing writer: Clint Alwahab likes making people feel awkward when they make jokes about colorblind photographers (cause he is one), and staring at B&H Photo’s website for hours. You can tweet him at: @calwahab.
