A little obsessive?

  1. Found this on another site... the caption read : "Some parents are just a little too over the top when it comes to documenting their child's leisure activities"

    I think I might last about ten minutes carrying all of that.

    I've posted this image elsewhere myself. I was asking for opinions on how to best carry around lenses, and indicated that I didn't want to look like this guy!

    Classic picture.

    Ohhh my...that doesn't look like fun. I would give up photography before I became that obsessive with my gear. Too funny!
     
  4. My goodness! I thought I was obsessive with my 2 cameras and bag of lenses......I'd be broken in half after a day like that!

    Do you think it's for real? Do some people really carry that much equipment?
     
  9. I think it is real but I dont think he was carrying all that stuff for very long. He was probably in the process of moving to a different shooting spot. Still pretty nuts! :eek:

    I think it's a spoof shot done by him and a couple of other photogs, why would anyone need to carry 5 bodies, especially since some are nikons and some are canons.
