Are you a Photofag? (40+ pics)

If you recognize yourself in any of these photos, your diagnose is evident – you are a photo fag.

If you had done something similar to what you are about to see in these pics – you are also a photo fag.

If you haven’t done that, but you want to do anything like that – you are a photofag.

If you use similar photo equipment to those guys you are about to see – photofag!

But don’t worry! There are plenty of you guys, so when you see someone crawling on the ground with a camera in his mouth try to befriend him. Don’t worry – photographer is usually a friendly animal.

If I weren’t a lazy panda, maybe I would be a photofag too, but nah – I will just eat my bamboo.

This is not fake, he is most likely carrying Nikkor Super telephoto Zoom lens 1200-1700mm (Weighing 16kg and measuring 880mm). More info here.

P.S.: thank you Andrew for sending us this huge list of photos! Many of these pics are still missing credits, so if you know their authors, you can write it in the comment section. Photofags that took these pictures deserve their bamboo leaves!

  • N. Korn

    @Nick: No Nick, all these are of fake camera’s. no one could possibly make anything like that. Nikon is a fake company.

    Sarcasm aside, I have to admit a bit of jealousy for some of their gear. Though anything resembling shoulder fire weaponry is a bit much. (aka 3 from the bottom)

    this is brilliant, ive seen douchebags doing things like this before

    The first pic is of several news photographers pestering the Clintons’ pet cat Socks. It was taken when Bill Clinton was President.

    I can take a joke with the best of em. But I gotta say being a professional photographer myself. Some of those pics show the lengths were willing to go for our craft. I’ve stood 30 feet from dragsters going by at 180mph without flinching. I’ve let the mosquitoes feed while capturing the setting sun. I’ve frozen my fingers to the point I can barely operate the controls. I chase thunderstorms routinely capturing lightning. I’ll pause to shoot a flower right in front of some neanderthal ego centric macho douche bag. Because unlike him I am secure enough in my manhood to not give a shit how he perceives my activities.
    It also takes guts to walk around the city with 3 grand hanging around my neck. I began my study of photography while serving in the U.S. Marine Corps. So call me a fag or try to interfere with my shot or steal my gear. I’ll beat you fuc*ing senseless and take a picture of you lying there bleeding, then force you sign a model release so I can publish it.
    The irony… if not for photographers you couldn’t even make this joke cause somebody had to shoot the photos used in the joke.

    >So call me a fag [...] I’ll beat you fuc*ing senseless and take a picture of you lying there bleeding, then force you

    “No Mr Bryant, you are the egocentric macho douchebags.”

    And then Bryant was an Internet Tough Guy.
