Your Photography Related Injuries

So a week and a half a go I was out taking some photos, standing on a mud bank over a beach I edged closer, trying to frame some fallen trees that were lying on the sand.

Stupidly I didn't realise that the bank would be overhanging the beach slightly...anyway I've been limping around since and was wondering what accidents anyone else has had either while trying to capture that perfect shot, or just photography related in general?

Re: Your Photography Related Injuries

Last summer did the mad thing of getting up at an ungodly hour to take some sunrise pictures at lyme regis. I set the camera up on the tripod by the car put my bag on my back and set off along the pebble beach towards the harbour, next thing i remember is pebbles aproaching me at a high speed, i'd just tripped over a chain divider seperating apart of the beach. Luckily i managed to keep the camera from hitting the ground but injured both shins and my elbow, if can remember rightly my elbow hurt for weeks after....

A good lesson learnt for me.......get a torch!!!

I managed to save the camera too, I may have been lying flat out 4-5feet lower than I started, but I still had the camera raised up out of harms way!

Re: Your Photography Related Injuries

A year ago was up very early to catch a sunrise in the snow-filled Brecon Beacons, so missed the weather warnings for strong winds on high ground.

We were up on a cliff edged ridge when the first of the gusts blew us flat on our faces - my mate couldn't see me and thought I'd gone over the 200m drop! I was way too concerned about my camera which ended in a snowdrift (tho did hang onto it!). I panicked with my dSLR while he smugly continued to shoot with his Nikon filmie - despite it having a layer of ice over the filter (he didn't want to scrape it off in case of damage!)

We continued onward for a little while but it does get tiring picking yourself up off the ground having been blown there, or having thrown yourself there, every few yards!

Anyway, I lost my mobile, removed my pack to go back to search for it (big pack was vastly increasing my wind resistance!) but decided discretion better part of valour when I was being lifted up and blown backwards! We fought our way down, passing a few on the way up who obviously didn't believe us!

My camera was OK when carefully thawed out, as was my mate's, so the only real casualties: our pride and my mobile (for which there was eBay........ again!).

Oh, and I got a speeding ticket as it's incredibly important that you keep to the 50mph on the M4 at 5:00 on a Saturday morning - I mean there might actually be another vehicle on the whole motorway at that time!

Re: Your Photography Related Injuries


Well It was about four years ago, I was carrying amy first digital camera, RDC 500 Ricoh.
that I still have in my safe, cost about £500.00 2.3 mp, stiil works, apart from the flimsy battery door...anyway I had the camera around my wrist, and I was at my sisters House, and she kept nagging me to go upstairs and get a printer from her bedroom, and on the way down,....steep stairs....I slipped on some letters she had put on the stairs, at great speed I came sliding down the stairs and my leg broke my fall, meeting a wall at the bottom. God It hurt, My leg snapped, my ankle was pointing backwards, an Ambulance was called, went to Hospital for two weeks, had several ops, I had snapped every bone In my ankle, a tri thibula fracture, had steel pins placed in the bones and one in the ankle joint, I still take pain killers today, the camera came away not a scratch on It, and this left me with a small disability, all I can say is, That gas and air they use in the Ambulance is good stuff, after breathing that in, I took several pictures Of my leg.. It does not stop me though, even though I get terrible pain even now several years on, I have planned to walk up Snowdon In May this year, al going well, I will upload some nice pics on here, last time I went up there was by train....the motto of this story,,,dont put things on stairs!

Re: Your Photography Related Injuries

Got a black eye of her in doors once..
put candid shot of her in bath on a photo fourm (all in good taste)
but she didnt think so.
also hurt the wallet (new outfit and a night at a play)
i did tell her i was going to put it on the fourm, but she thought i was joking.
we both see the funny side now.
