There are different types of photographers, that’s for sure. I don’t know if there are only two of them or as many as 30, but one can certainly take a comical twist on the differences between photographers. This is exactly what guys from The Grand Tour did. In this video, Richard Hammond, Jeremy Clarkson and James May got together, playing wildlife photographers who compare the gear they bought. It’s absolutely hilarious, and some of you will probably recognize themselves in it.

YouTube video

The video is relatively old, considering that it’s from Season 3 of the show. However, it was recently “resurrected” on Reddit where it got quite a lot of reactions. Richard Hammond is that photographer who has a wide selection of lenses for any possible occasion. Jeremy Clarkson is the one with “one lens to rule them all,” a Canon EF 600mm f/4L IS II. I laughed out loud when Hammond asked: “Are you photograph animals in this country?” And then, there’s James May who likes to keep it simple and uses a modest compact camera.

Make sure to watch the video, as it’s two minutes of pure fun and plenty of great jokes one after another. And let me know – which of these photographers are you? :)

    I would like to see national geographic do a documentary about how these wildlife photographers/camera men take shots of wild animals. But instead they keep making reality TV based shows. Reality TV killed good programming. There are very little nature documentaries now.

      Same with the History channel and Discovery, I learnt so much from those two channels.

      Well, that’s because there is nothing thrilling about a person who forgoes all responsibility to lay in the woods for a week to get one good photo of a bird everyone has already photographed.

      bbc still tends to have a 10min segment for “making off” on nature programs. but mostly its time, location(s),skill, new tech equipment (in any order)

    I am a cross between the first two. I do like to carry a Macro lens just in case, but I carry the 70-200mm and 200-500mm. I just went to three zoos in three days and left the Macro lens behind. Never needed it fortunately.

    That said, I am hoping my newest lens, when it finally arrives, the 120-300mm f/2.8 along with a 2X teleconverter (just in case) will do the job. Just as much weight, but not as much lens changing.

    :D Way to funny. I could not work with the “All in one camera” :D For sure it is right, the animal can run off within the next minute, or even seconds. So the camera should be fast enough. :D I doubt the little one will be fast enough.
    I had a laugh, thanks so much.

    Explore Wildlife Photography. These images are capture with a “large” lens. The “All in one camera” would not been able to do that. :D
