Some people have no sense. Or too much courage. Or something. A video posted by the Singapore Reckless Drivers Community (apparently it’s a real problem over there) shows a photographer hanging his body halfway out a car window while going down the highway. According to SRDC, the guy is a wedding photographer and was attempting to get the perfect shot of the wedding party in the vehicle next to him.
Sure, we’ve all done stupid stuff to get a good image…like the time a friend and I (with a broken foot) kinda borrowed a leaky canoe with no paddle to go exploring a crocodile-infested lagoon at night in hopes of getting some great moonlit photos of the beasts. What you do in your own time is your business.
But, in a case like this, what would be the outcome were the photographer to be injured or killed? What happens to the images and all the memories from the clients’ special day?
At what point do the risks of “getting the shot” outweigh common sense and good business practices?
