Surprising and adventurous story of how my camera got lost and found. I mentioned my old story in a recent blog post about a lost camera and I told I too managed to loose a big and heavy camera once. Like many others. It is a years old story, what I wanted to publish many times, but I never did ever since. Here is the story I learned at least one very important lesson.
accident during work
This news is about a few days olt, but I had to include it on my blog. On the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, Swiss skier Lara Gut fell and crashed into photographers shooting the event from the side of the race track.
Not only paparazzi are in danger of their subjects becoming angry and hitting them. Just recently a nature photographer was attacked by a 200 kg gorilla. Luckily Christophe Courteau got away no serious injuries but some very special pictures.
Using a ladder is a popular method around the world for photographers and cameramen, but you should take care how to use it to avoid accidents.
The 65 year old James Nachtwey still goes to the most dangerous places on Earth. At the moment he is pressing his luck in Thailand. This weekend he has been shot by a bullet. The war photographer who has been the subject of the documentary bearing the same title is okay now however and he continued work after his wounds have been taken care of.
Not so long ago I found a hockey photo that is quite rare in its kind. On the Ice Hockey world championships starting today in Budapest we surely won’t have a chance to take anything similar. Now that I publish this photo I guess we cannot even expect ever to have photographer holes on the glass here in Hungary – but I’m not sure if I really miss it or not.
Flash news: I had a minorr accident in Rome. It almost became serious, but I got away with it luckily. Nothing more than a short fight happened. I can thank God for it! Details later…
