I was with my wife and my 3 year old daughter and we were walking towards a fair

It was in the countryside and there was quite a lot of natural beauty, rivers etc. There was a photographer who was taking still shots of the river side, trees etc.

I saw him notice us, whilst it looked like I was absorbed in a conversation with my wife.

He attempted to position his camera and when he did so, I deliberately made the shots awkward with my positioning whilst deliberately standing in front of my daughter.

He looked frustrated and then I shot him a glance, making eye contact and he got his camera and walked off. At this point, as he was agitated, I was going to use his reaction to have an argument with him. I knew he would defend his actions 'public place, no close shot etc' and then be snide by hiding behind these laws. As he was agitated, I knew I could confront him 'why are you annoyed etc' and go down this route and it asked myself the question -why was he so annoyed? I suspect he also predicted how this was going to go and moved on.

Just my own feelings, but I am sure a polite, non confrontational response on my part would have resulted in a snide, this is a public place response.

Legally, there was nothing I could do, we were in a public place, there were no close shots, hence why I obstructed the view.


I love me some photography, but you can't just expect strangers to let you use them as models for a well-composed photograph.
He's a bit up his own arse if he expects people to pose for him, too.

I used to do photography for events and I would never take photographs of kids unless someone asked me to take a picture of them and their kid for their own use. It's just weird.
