I purchased a good wide angle lense to enable full body shots in very close quarters and to maximize my low light capability by being as close to the model as possible. I can actually shoot a framed doorway from 4 ft away and I love it.

More and more, I see these gigantic zoom lenses pointed at a model that is two steps away from the photographer. I thought that it was just amatures showing off the new lens but even seasoned pros are doing it. What gives?

Because they are shooting with a tight fov for a headshot or bodyscape etc. They're more likely a 70-200/2.8 instead of a 300mm though.
