Hahahaha...I couldn't believe it yesterday when I was shooting the Sunday morning bike race. One of "our" veteran photogs decided to jump across to the other side (my side) of the road during a sprint finish. Fortunately, the winner was soloing to the line doing victory salutes. He was at the wrong side of the finish and he "needed" to get the shot by blocking my line of sight. Second, almost causing the winner to crash onto him. Luckily, there was no crash. Luckily, the winner did few more victory salutes after the line and I got the shots. Here, I am just covering our local races and doing some spec work. He isn't shooting for any news agency, although he does that too. There is no reasons why he would need to endanger himself and the riders while messing up shots of other photogs, just because he was at the wrong side of the finish. I have the whole incidence captured too...:) It would be funny if I post them on my FB account...:)

He is a bit pretentious for a photog. One should allow his works to speak for himself. Not parading in front others....

The shots are here. http://www.flickr.com/​photos/vracing/ (external link)

What is this, high school? Don't just talk trash about him on the internet, go confront the guy and ask him what his deal is.

I prefer the talking loudly method when another photog decides they need to show up late and jump infront of your position that you've staked out.

I love how he looks back at you after he just ran right in front of your shot. It's like he knew what he was doing and still did it anyways, too funny.

the shocked expression on the cyclist sets the scene well. That other photographer looks like he has an attitude problem.

I'll definitely have a talk with any photographer who jumps in front of my shots.

The more professional the photographer, the more they will get out of your way to make sure you get your shots too. It's usually the aspiring GWC's who have no manners or respect for their fellow working photographers.

Made me think of a time it happened to me, the guy did that - ran in front and I pulled away and he was looking back at me....it wasn't that he did it on purpose, exact opposite, he just started moving and then half way through it "clicked" what he was doing and apologized repeatedly. Most pros working together know not to do this, lost more than a few shots from people on the sidelines who had no clue what they're doing.
