So when you have a silll photographer and a videographer working the same event, what is the professional etiquette? Which one gets "priority"?
But in any case, it looks like this videographer was not very considerate. But then we are only getting one side of the story. I wonder if this videographer is on another forum talking about this wedding he shot were this still photographer kept getting in the way.
in every job i've worked the photo guy took the lead, and i would jump in front of the video guy if need be. i wouldn't unless needed, but i would and do in a heartbeat. these photos of the video guy at the alter are standard fair for me. really, this is ashame, but i get this all the time. you try to work the angles to not get them in the shot but it's a fast moving flowing situation, and often you get what you get. unless you want to take over the whole damn thing and stage it all, and i don't and the bride/groom don't either. so you get what you get.
when someone gets dropped off, and you're not buds that already agreed to hook up people with a ride, you are being put on notice that you are in the sh)t.
the reaction here to this post is much nicer than when i came on here to talk about what had happened to me some time ago. if i recall correctly it was a wedding guest hounding me all night, setting up shots(not wanted or requested),asking me if i had any batteries she could use, as her flash was eating them due to the dark reception venue, and generally annoying me all day. i seem to recall you guys saying something to the effect that i was a whiner and that i should deal. well, of course i did deal and i did the job. sometimes you guys can .... ah,forget it
