    LOL. Some of the many reasons I only rarely photograph human subjects.

    My old man Wanted me To Photograph his GTS Monaro to make posters to sell, when talking about it to someone else I heard him say that I could do it because I had a pretty good camera :laugh1:

    I did not find it funny. It was nice at the beginning but after 3 minutes I just got bored

    I agree it it is too long and repetitive, but the concept is funny and true.

    well I was thinking into my train ride (2 hours today) back home. Why do we consider this funny? Are not these guys professionals? What is the difference of a photographer and a butcher that stands still for hours? Does the butcher have an easier life?
    I guess the idea of being professional is for getting this comments from your clients and then to filter them out as you have to (discarding them pretty much). I am not sure what this video provides to the pro photographers community
    (btw I also laughed at the beginning)

    I think perhaps you may be taking it a little too seriously, Alex. It's just a funny video, that's all.

    Well, no. My commute is about 20 secs., and I can work in my underwear. :p

    But I guess a long, tedious commute would make me grumpy too. Perhaps watching a few more funny videos could lighten your mood?

    One's missing that happened to me a year ago. [Client who hired me]: "Hey, should I borrow you my camera? I've a bigger one."

    The video provides a good laugh. I guess you never worked in the creative professional industry full time? I can tell you these comments add up, and at some point you simply can't hear some sentences even just one more time. You won't be happy working in this industry. Except when you remember why you love what you do, that is.
