Just curious, has anyone ever had a photographer yell at you?

I had one case at an airshow, a jet was taxiing by and I was using a borrowed 40D with Sigma 18-200 and 70-200 f/2.8L. I took the 18-200 because 70mm was too much. Suddenly a fellow photog yells at me "Why the hell aren't you using te 70-200!?!?!" ..
Then I replied because I'm not using FF (he had 5D2).

It was very weird though and gents around were looking at me oddly.

Post your experiences!

That's hilarious, what a clown.

I have never experienced anything like this, no.

Its usually the reverse in my experience. Fellow photographer won't talk or even whisper...

I can honestly say I've never encountered that sort of a scenario :s

I had the husband of a cousin yell at me at my wedding when I walked in front of the cake as he was trying to get a photo with one of those instant develop camera's. He asked if I knew how much the film cost....

Yep and it nearly became physical also.
At a zoo some dolt, who was alot taller than me but in his mid to late 50's, started screaming at me that "I was taking money away from him" by taking pictures of the animals. Told him to leave me alone. Clusterhead then followed me over to the next exhibit still screaming and getting in my face. Told him in not so nice words to "Get away from me NOW or you'll be going to the hospital" with quite a few explitives added in. He backed off. Went to the next one and he starts following again screaming that "I was taking money from him". When I went to take a pic of the bear, he grabbed my arm. Leg came up for a side kick to his groin and I seen zoo security grab him before I got the chance to unload on him. Dang it.
The zoo's security people were looking for this guy. He was harassing everyone with a "pro" camera. Guy had issues. Guess he thought he could initimidate someone alot shorter than him. Although it would had made a great shot of his facial expression the second he got a hiking boot just below the belt.:lol:

Good job the security saw him grabbing you or you could have ended up in court.

Thing called self defense. As long as I stop once the threat is over its fine. Now if I kicked him, he went down and I started pummeling on him, well theres another story.

He could file all the lawsuits he wants. One look at the huge height discrepency between us will get it tossed. Along with the fact he was instigating people all over the zoo wont hurt.

I wonder if the video editors on The Titanic ever went, "Sorry, I can't right now. I'm busy synching the Titanic..."
