Remember that guy in the truck who tried to kill that photographer and eventually got charged with felony? This is kinda the same, only instead of a guy, it’s a girl, instead of a car it’s a golf cart, and instead of the guy trying to kill the photographer, it’s the photo crew almost killing the girl!

We hate it when security bullies photographers, but for balance-sake, there is also the opposite side. In this short video photographers Chris Eiland and Nick Tellez set up quite an elaborate stunt shot with BMXer Justin Gautreau. The stunt took place at El Toro high school infamous stairs also called El Toro 20.

A security lady arrives on a cart after the first (failed) attempt at the jump and asks them to leave. The next few minutes are kinda surreal. The photographer, and biker try to talk the security lady into giving them another shot at the trick. And when talking fails, they simply push the cart out of the way (lady inside) and jumps anyways, almost hitting the golf cart at the bottom of the staircase.

This time the jump succeeds.

P.S. I know that security earned a name for them for being wrong, being bullies, even being violent. I think it’s guys like this who make it harder for the rest of us.

P.P.S. I wonder if a male security guard would have gotten the same attitude from the crew.

    The irritating high voice coming from the golf cart. Well… I guess it was the factor that made it work. So thanks to the guard.

    These A-holes are totally and completely in the wrong. Their immersion in their own agenda at all costs could have gotten someone seriously injured.
    The professional response is, if you are photographing in a situation like this and a security guard asks you to leave, you leave. Had they simply asked in advance they probably could have gotten permission to shoot in this location.

    The guys does not have this situation under control – all their eyes are focused on the BMX. If eg. a runner came in the line of the BMX, this could turn into a pretty serious situation.

    These guys does not have permit to do stunts like this in this public area. On top of this, the BMX guy acts hostile and try to take process of property that is not his.

    This situation can not be compared with the situation with Alex. This time it is the guys who are in the wrong.

    It’s all good and well, until you hurt someone, and you didn’t have permission!
    Even if they have insurance, it would probably have been void and they could have been in serious trouble.

    I would rather get told not to use a location and then move on, than get in trouble.

      Agreed. This looks like it was probably set up.

    Its these type of togs that give the rest ammunition….They are on “private property” and the security guard is totally in her right to ask them to move on.

    “I think it’s guys like this who make it harder for the rest of us.” – Don’t talk about other security when you’re only concern with yourself having a easier life. And don’t talk about balance when your text is so passionate that you wasn’t able even to hide it.

    “I wonder if a male security” – Really? Come down to earth man, that why you’re wondering with this kind of arguments, you live in another planet! You think you know what is to have dificulteis with security guards because you’re a photographer? You should try street sports for ONE day…

    These guys are not worried about your obsession for “pro behavior and career”, all they care about is the sport, the limits, to take the risk that others would not dare. Did you saw they reaction in the end? Now you need to understand it! They could handle this situation better? yes… And so the security guard! The one you would expect (and should ask for) security expertise, and has indeed the duty to do so, is the guard. Don’t flip the table just because is convenient. And yet, ever wrong they inspire, but on it was not written a word. Why?! It was a controversial situation, with error on both sides, but your article is clearly passionate and shallow. It should be rewritten…
