Too Afraid, to Enter the Photography Arena!!
3 months ago

There seems to be a lot of paranoid, over protective photographers wandering about, in fear of being robbed or violently threatened. Why is this negative attitude so prevalent? Are you all living in dangerous cities and neighbourhoods, that you can't go out and take pictures, without having to look over your shoulder, frequently?

I get this from those of you looking to try buying unassuming camera bags and back packs. Blend into the city.

Perhaps it's time that some of you took a proactive stance, either with some basic/barbaric boxing lessons, or to a full on MMA training, just to give you a little boost towards better self confidence and also learn to walk with a purpose. Try to look like you are somebody of importance, not a victim, or a crime statistic.

I know you fear the unknown, but think positively instead of negatively, let's all be strong, walk with confidence.

Travel in pairs or groups too, will help to prevent undo happenings from ever occurring. Stay in the light.

Please go out, & enjoy your camera gear to the very fullest, don't let anyone push you around or threaten you!!
