What do you say?

One question that I'm asked when I'm out shooting sports is "who do you work for?".....and I never know what to really say

What do you say if you get asked?

Re: What do you say?

Happened to me yesterday when I was snapping the chaos caused by a burst water main. Well a scary woman asked if I was from the local paper. Freelance is a non answer and then it's about the only time the NUJ card is useful if pressed.

Re: What do you say?

Depends on the outing. Sometimes, I'm out for the university newspaper, other times for the social scene website I work with, and the rest is exactly what Markulous said..

Course, I think I'm gonna have to give the bunny scout line a whirl some day when the situation warrants dropping it

Re: What do you say?

The truth: "WireImage"... which is usually met with a blank stare, followed by "Who??" I then have to say that they're one of the largest photo agencies in the world.

This is sometimes followed with "Oh, so you're a paparazzi then?!"... which is almost always followed by me snarling and growling...

What confused me the most was, when down shooting UFC 75 in September '07, a lot of the other "sports" photographers didn't know who ESPN were... go figure.

Re: What do you say?

Some interesting replies.....might have to try some of the funnier ones .

Only this week I had to assure one of the sports clubs I gain access and shoot that I wasn't working for any media group (someone had made a suggestion that I was ).

Get it ALL the time seems to me that if your lens is anything biger than a standard 18-55 then they assume your press or paparazzi and cant help themselves but ask the questions.

I sometimes tell them i was shooting past them and that they where in my shot other times i tell them to ?#"#_)(?/ . To the genuine polite ones i give them my card

Happened twice in this last week

Re: What do you say?

LOL depends usually if I'm doing magazines at the same time I will state the magazine, this works very well at horse events. Otherwise Ill just give them the company name.

Made me laugh last year I was seconding, this girl with her DSLR kept giving me funny looks and standing about 4 ft from me taking the same shots.
