Every so often, something comes along in the name of parody that really hits home. In my time working with a camera, I’ve come across every single one of these at some point or other. This wonderful series of illustrations were created by Mike Roshuk at pixelcrush_ca and while they do play on stereotypes, we’ve almost certainly all met them at some point.
We’ve featured Mike’s work here on DIYP before, and it’s really excellent. Hopefully, you’re not one of the photographers featured in his latest series. Or, at least strive to not be one of these. But on the off chance that you haven’t met any of these people in your photographic journey, watch out, one of them might just be you.
While most are just a bit of harmless fun, that last one is definitely a type of camera owner you should not aspire to become (as is the GWC).
To keep things fair, Mike has also created a series of Typical models that every photographer knows which is just as funny and rings just as true. I’ve met all of these at some point, and I’ve met some models that were several of these combined. They were all a lot of fun to work with, though, except “The Flake”, for obvious reasons.
