My life as a Paparazzi photographer posted by

Making a career as a paparazzi photographer is very hard. This is a very strenuous job that requires a person to have a lot of patience, mental stamina and the ability to withstand lots of pressure. The pressure on the job as a paparazzi photographer comes from various sources. One source of the pressure for a paparazzi comes from within the individual. This is because every paparazzo wants to be the best and as such they push themselves to get the most captivating pictures. The pressure for good results pushes some of the paparazzi men and women to do some illegal and unethical things just to get the pictures.

Additionally there are external sources of pressure for celebrity photographers, this are usually as a result of the nature of work that they do. For instance some pressure comes from the people who the paparazzi photographer has to cover in his photographic work. Some of these people have a lot of people who are employed to provide them with security. Thus for the photographer to get through the security detail it is one nightmarish thing for him or her. The security men and women understand what a paparazzi can do to the reputation of their employer.

Anyway as a paparazzi photographer you have to be very knowledgeable about the laws that govern privacy issues in your country or state. Some countries permit the paparazzi to sell the photos that they have taken if they are for the good of the public. You have to know when the law is on your side and when it is not. This is because if you are not careful then you might find yourself behind bars. In some countries and states the work of paparazzi has been hindered by strict laws that have been developed by the legislature.

However for any professional paparazzi who is able to surmount the challenges that come his or her way then the returns are usually very good.  The photographers are rewarded handsomely for their work when they get to sell the photographs that they do take. This is way more and more individuals are turning to the paparazzi world, they understand after all nothing comes easy and through this profession they can make something for themselves.

For me this is real work, the photographer can get to determine what her or she covers in the work. I would love to consider a paparazzi photographer as a photojournalist.

The paparazzi world is changing posted by

The paparazzi business has helped quiet a substantial number of people to get information that would otherwise have been unavailable to them. The paparazzi thing has brought up a very vibrant industry that many youngsters seem to watch with envy and admiration. This is the industry that has enabled them to follow each and every movement of their superstars both local and international. The youngsters seem to derive a lot of pleasure from the insights that they get on the lives of these superstars.

The paparazzi go after the celebrities throughout their careers even when the celebrities try to retire from public life the paparazzi still trail them. This is why some people have had to seek help from federal officials to wade the stalking that is associated with the paparazzi. The paparazzi are always energetic, following a person from one place to another. Some paparazzi are even known to deploy the use of some very uncouth means just to get a scintillating story out. Some have developed a tendency of bribing some of the people who are close to their targets so that they can get first hand or exclusive information about the movements of their targets.

They engage in criminal acts in the pursuit of their careers, unknowingly or just by sheer ignorance and arrogance. They can tap on to their targets’ telephones so that they can keep close tabs on them. However this is not to say that we do not have professional paparazzi photographers, well established paparazzi who have respect for their targets. The professionals do not engage in these uncouth activities to get what they want rather they seek information using the right channels by trailing the celebrities in a more professional manner.

These professionals have even gone to the extent of establishing their own organizations. Through their organizations they conduct their businesses in a well coordinated manner. They even offer their services for hire to prospective clients who want some story covered for them about a particular celebrity by including exclusive photographs. This is a big break from the traditional paparazzi business, where someone just did what he or she felt like doing by stalking any celebrity of their choice.

This transformation from the tradition has made paparazzi work more respectable. A person can now comfortably identify himself or herself as a paparazzi in public without raising any eyebrows. However much more needs to be done to ensure acceptance of paparazzi as meaningful form journalism.

Although the profession has its flipside, the good greatly outweighs the bad and this is why every photographer or photojournalist wants to be in the entourage of a celebrity.

A professional celebrity photographer does not engage in some shoddy deals to sell the photographs that are taken. Everything about his or her conduct is above board, nothing compares them to paparazzi. They are usually people of unquestionable character, and this is why celebrities do allow them to cover their events. They do not just present themselves in such events, they first seek for permission from the celebrities or their managers. Talk of professionalism at it best, according the celebrities the space and privacy that they so much need in their lives. The intrusion in the lives of the celebrities has caused some fatalities in recent history.

Anyway for a person to become a celebrity photographer then he or she has to be good, not just good but very good in capturing those photo moments. Those moments that bring out the best in an event, when it is least expected. You just have to be very good in what you do, with a clear understanding of how to communicate with your pictures only without evening saying a word or adding a caption to the picture.
