20 Photographers-in-Action Shots

Like most travelers, I enjoy taking pictures of the places I see.  It used to be to show family and friends but eventually developed into more of giving myself a challenge of not only capturing images for my memories, but also seeing if I could capture anything unique or interesting as I explore the world via travels.  However, I am hardly unique in all this as this photo essay will show.  Among the interesting images that catch my attention is watching others photograph people or their setting.  So in what I hope will not be the only post of its kinds, here are “photographers in action.”

Let me know which is your favorite picture!

    raul – i noticed this was all people with DSLRs/SLRs. now with smartphones, seems more people will be attempting to capture their memories. let’s hope this effort though, never interferes with our ability to *experience* these beautiful places.

    • Good point, JR. To me the photo is about helping me remember the experience not to take its place – I hope I never forget that!

  2. Great shots. I like the behind the scenes look at photographers. I have taken a few of those myself. it is just interesting to see the concentration and the pose of the photographer who is concentrated on their subject. Also a great point of enjoying what is in front of you, not just taking shots

  3. Interesting concept, Raul. Mark had a similar idea when we were in Europe last month. He started taking photos of people taking photos using their big freakin’ iPads. It just looks ridiculous. As for my favorite here, I really like the glacier shot and the one at the Vietnam Memorial (I have a similar one of myself).

  4. I have a really good one that would fit this series. It is a picture of one geisha taking a picture of another in front of a blooming cherry blossom tree. Good idea for a photo essay.
