Now, that is stupid. He was literally blocking his path. What kind of photographers are you when you are literally standing in front of your moving subject. If I were the skater, I would push this guy in the face for blocking my path. It could be fatal. The skater could be going about some 25mph+. I shoot cycling races and just imagine I am standing right in front of a speeding peleton going down hill at 40mph......
That guy is Joe McNally and that is a video excerpt of a shoot he did. Both Joe and the skater were well aware of each other,

My personal favorite was watching Scott Kelby get run over by Aaron Rogers in the NFC Championship game. Priceless.

I shoot with both eyes open...I find that helps a lot in keeping some degree of situational awareness
Had I done this, I might seen the photographer at the end of the wire. Now he just appeared in the viewfinder just before the collision.
I still have 8 digits left

One has to be aware. Shooting at 17mm has had me collide into my friends faces a few times, shooting skateboarders ultrawide has also taught me how to move quickly whilst looking in the VF.

Sometimes I can look right at the dangerous thing. Knowing when a propane tank and fire is safe and when its not is useful. This tank was venting propane out the top. I wouldn't have wanted to be this close if it was going to blow.
