De Niros people will do that ...I always ask first. Its just good etiquette to simply ask. Its what it makes you as a photographer feel like as well....if you snap someones pic. and it pisses them off...if you are any kind of decent human being it will leave you with an unsettling feeling.(who would want that ?)
'suspect in a camera-smashing incident'......might it have been the TMZ guy's camera that seem to have been up his ass during his stay in Vegas???
Those people are relentless and soul sucking. I came across their "tv show" one night flipping through channels. I was pretty disgusted by it.
If someone was hounding me or someone I was with, I'
smash a camera too.
I've always wanted to do that, then peel off a couple of hundreds and throw them at the photographer
just like right outta the Godfather
like I've got someone hounding me with a camera
and a roll of hundred dollar bills in my pocket
However...Hollywood paparazzi have no souls...they are lower than low.....they dont care how it makes people feel if they get a buck out of it.
