On Introducing... What The Duck on dpreview.com article (62 comments in total)

I'd rather look at lurid photos of high school girls.

Why did they fire the photo staff? Because the top managers can see the paper is doomed and by cutting this major expense the bosses will be able to collect their big paychecks for a little longer.

Last summer I had some photos on a national story and I got 50 calls from picture editors. Not one wanted to pay. They all wanted "to share." I asked every one of them "are you working for free right now?" The problem is there are so many people shooting pictures and they now have the ability to transmit quickly and reliably. So the image that went around the country was from a local fishing boat captain. It wasn't as good as my photos, but it was free. Newspaper management all over the country has decided photographers are dead weight.

Naturally, all the cubicle monkies on DPR could do a better job. They should submit their portfolio of cat photos to Apple and pull down some of that $15,000 a day photo work!

On Celebrities who love photography article (66 comments in total)

Alan Arkin and Harry Belafonte are avid photographers and Leica collectors. Same with the late Sonny Bono. Senator Barry Goldwater enjoyed photographing the Southwest with his Leica in his spare time. Frank Sinatra had boxing photos published in Time and Life. The list goes on....

Tim F 101: But are they good for hunting the most dangerous game? Not buying one until I get an answer from Nikon.

Better to get Leupold or Schmidt & Bender.

I hunt caribou because I eat them. I find sport hunting offensive but am aware of the cash it provides to remote cultures in Africa and elsewhere. My scope is a Leupold designed for the US Marine Corps for sniper rifles. Animal lovers don't get so excited about shooting people, do they?

All journalists are strictly controlled? That's hardly the case.

Ivar Dahl Larsen: Great photographs under circumstances most People of today cannot apprehend. Let's never forget and may it never happen again.

Let it never happen again? It's happening right now! It never stopped happening. We're about to get into it in Korea again and Israel has plans for us to invade Iran. There's no escape!

I just bought a German book of photos taken on the Eastern front during WW2. The photos were found in an attic by people cleaning out the house after their father passed away. There's lots of history waiting to be discovered.

atlien991: Morale operations lol.

Let any other country try a 'morale operation' and they instantly becomes a propaganda state forever. Only in the USA does EVERYTHING have a double standard.

You don't get around much, do you?

Time for Kofi to retire to Sweden with his Swedish wife and live high on the hog on his ample UN pension.

My favorite portrait for a well-known business magazine was when the CEO was really enraged at the questions the reporter was asking him and stomped out of the office. I was waiting outside for my 2 minutes with Mr. Big and grabbed a quick frame with my Leica and a 50. I was ready because I'd heard shouting coming from the office....One picture! Turned out to be a good one but the reporter didn't have a story so it never ran. For Americans familiar with computer retailing in the 80s it was at Computerland and the questions concerned the influence of EST in the company's management culture.

jorepuusa: 1. To have any common sense in an article like this, a photojournalist should always show an 100% faximile of the page with the picture and headline, those work together, these kind of pics need text as all press pictures do.
2. Most of the others who comment cannot understand that photojournalism is 95% of something else than actual photography.
3. Somebody was p.....d of because he did not get exact advice, well why should a pro give exact advice for an amateur and then loose his job cause the amateur gives his pictures for free and steals pro´s job.
Dreview shows pictures of war but cannot show swear words like p.....d, what hypocrisy, thank god I live in Europe.

You need to take your medication on schedule. You can't just take it some of the time.

In reply to:

donjose: Idiot. The rifle is not even a sniper rifle. It is a shotgun. Snipers don't use shotguns. The photographer doesn't even know what he is talking about. I don't believe his story about research never meant to be made public. He tried to fake a scene and got caught.

The guy wasn't a sniper...the caption was wrong. He was a military photographer.

In reply to:

yuvyuv: I can't find the specific hypocrite comment I wanted to reply to. So I just paste it here for all of them.
This picture was created for you. Terrorists told the photographer were to be. They knew children would die there. They launched there missiles with a remote control, from a populated building. Those children died just for your tongue Clucking. And as long as you blame Israel for it, they will continue to die. the Israelis don’t have other options. (no, they don’t consider die quietly to make you happy as an option) they already doing an insane effort to minimize causalities on both sides, including the development of missiles that stop their missiles. Do you know another country that shows such sensitivity to their enemy's civilians during a missiles attack on its own civilians?

Everybody hates Israel. What bothers me is that hate rubs off on the US because without us you wouldn't exist. For 30 years you people pursued a policy called "Make my enemy the enemy of the United States." That policy bore fruit on Sept. 11, 2001. Now we're fighting endless nonsense wars to promote the political will of Israel. The bitter irony is when your little KGB paradise finally collapses all the refugees will come to the USA....at the American taxpayer's expense.
