Apparently this applies to some sports photographers as well, or maybe this person was sent to shoot famous people in the crowd for a checkout magazine.

I've seen sports photographers put gaffer tape on lens switches to prevent accidentally changing AF to M or the IS or AF range settings. I guess this guy goes overboard and tapes up the side buttons for the same reasons.

Photographers can have weird habits. Maybe its also to prevent him from hitting the buttons to prevent himself from chimping or wasting battery by hitting buttons.
