I agree with every point he made. We do things like this. Everyone does. Buy you should use your head a bit dont you think ? I try to use side streets where there is not a lot of traffic. But you should take advantage of every opportunity you can get and be smart about how you are going to do it. We were on our way to a bar and this was in the park we were shooting at. The bride asked the party if she cold slide down the slide.. they said yes. take advantage but be smart.

I think people just one to one-up others. You see it everywhere. People "reporting" the news first and thinking that's cool or something. You of course see it in here with a barrage of redundant posts. I guess it's the whole "Weeee...look at me! I was first!" mentality.

Generally, I think people (Photographer) just want to stand out and make the couple super happy with a shot that they have but their friends don't have.
Now-a-day, it will be tough be "the first" in anything given almost everyone and anyone can own a DSLR + software to join the Photography world :).

permits to use a public space, umm, f-that. :)
not going to if I don't have to!!!

i think the writer was being a little extreme.

also, so what if people get a little risky for their wedding/engagement/wha​tever photos.
afterall, it's THEIR photos and their risk.

just my opinion anyway, but people do a lot riskier things than stand in the street to take a photo.

The Article has a point! We all are doing from time to time similar things, but, we all have to think about our and client safety! That should be a priority #1!

Wedding Photography is a very compatible business to get in to, it is har to get enough jobs especially here in GTA (Greater Toronto Area) it is a zoo out here! Soooooo many photographers offering same and similar. So who is going to get the jobs?
The Ones who create something different!
Something different could be also something unsafe, unfortunately!

dont know if it is just me but I am not seeing any images at this link.

First thought of the most dangerous wedding photo might be one where the groom is groping a brides maid.

I was best man and caught this shot of the groom and maid of honor (Her husband really got upset about it too). http://photos.imageeve​nt.com …wedding/huge/IM​G_4194.JPG (external link) and http://photos.imageeve​nt.com …wedding/huge/IM​G_4193.JPG (external link)

As a person on foot, the only thing that you should be doing in the path of travel of motorized vehicles is crossing the street or picking up something you dropped.

If someone is using a public street as their photo venue they are being irresponsible for both their safety, the safety of those they're directing to stand in traffic and the safety of any/all vehicles and drivers passing through that area; involuntarily increasing the risk for those drivers. Streets are not designed to be a playground, photo studio or anything else. They are for vehicles to get from one point to another.

They're also being completely disrespectful of those other peoples' time and schedules; which is, simply, rude.

yes, i agree it is rude to hold other people up to have your photos shoot.
but if you aren't holding anyone up, big whoop. get in, get out.

the people that apparently get all these permits and set up studio conditions blocking traffic for hours are probably causing more of a disruption/problem then someone that takes 30 seconds get a couple photos in the street.

if you are just so uptight about it, don't do it, it's that simple.

i probably have a slightly different perspective because downtown rochester is often a ghost town on the weekends. i could have a picnic on main street if i really wanted to most saturday afternoons. but that doesn't mean i've never spent time in big city's, on the streets. and that doesn't mean that I practice this type of photography, i just see the allure and think you and the author are generally over-reacting.

Really ??

Most of our weddings are on saturdays. Most of the streets are empty. Its not like your gonna go out in the middle of a major hwy and stop traffic to take some shots. Like i indicated. You have to use your head.

So, yes; I don't totally disagree with either of you, really. My reaction, and I think the article, is directed at the folks that don't appear to be able to use their heads quite that well, and will attempt to do these things on busy streets, etc.
