My favourite photographer movies

This time it is not as comprehensive a list as I made in the case of the photography documentaries. It is rather just a short selection of my favourite feature movies. A similar one I made about movies inspiring photographers. Some of them I already wrote about here on my blog (at least on the Hungarian version) while others I didn’t mention yet.

Easter celebrations in the splash of water

Many of my female friends don’t like the masculine folk tradition of Easter waterings that is mandatory part of the festive in Hungary. Some straight consider it to be harrassment – including my photos of it. I think it is important to tell on Easter Monday I too get watered – I hope not to wither without this celebrartion this year!

Police officer draws weapon for a camera

A San Diegoi police officer unholstered his gun because he was unable to decide if a camera or weapon is aimed at him by a cameraman. The frighetned photographer resisted to put  down the camera, but in the end the conflict ended without gunshot.
US sites mostly shared this story as an example for the restriction of photographers’ rights, abuse and police brutality. However it is also a very important to think about how you communicate with officials.

Time-lapse of recovering boat Mermaid

Yesterday along the rest of Hungarian and international media I photographed the recovery of the passenger boat Mermaid that suffered a tragic accident in Budapest on river Danube almost two weeks ago. During the operations I made a time-lapse video to show you how the rescue happened. The time-lapse below shows the nearly 10 hours long process in only 1 minute.Yesterday along the rest of Hungarian and international media I photographed the recovery of the passenger boat Mermaid that suffered a tragic accident in Budapest on river Danube almost two weeks ago.

Video: Cameraman training camp

Cameraman and photojournalist work has some some broad similarities to the military operations. It requires experience, knowhow, concentration, coordination, can often be very exhausting and  physically demanding. It is an obvious thought process to compare it to real military trainings. This appears in the great and funny commercial  series of Sky Channel.
