    I couldn't seem to find any threads like this in the search, so I figured I would start my own thread.

    I would be very interested to read about your funny photography stories, experiences, injuries, etc etc etc...

    I'm sure there must be a lot of stories out there, espcecially from some of the more experienced professionals on this board...

    So lets hear 'em!

    Had a 9 month old do a little projectile vomiting on my face and camera. Wasn't too funny at the time. I don't even remember her name, but she must be about 39 so I can laugh at it now.

    I wonder how many times a photographer has fallen and taken a real beating protecting there equipment, or "getting" THE shot?

    In preparation for a television segment I was shooting, I told a woman principal not to wear green and to make sure that she wore something with a pocket for the small transmitter attached to the tiny wireless microphone with a small cable.

    Of course she wore green with no pocket, so she stuck the transmitter into the elastic grip of the skirt. During my shooting the transmitter slipped and ended up dangling under her skirt between her legs. As a live shoot, I could not stop filming and to make matters worse she started reaching into her skirt to try and get the transmitter out while on camera.

    In a very large venue with an audience of 1,000 including politicians, I was supposed to move from the front to the back at one point to start a multi-screen presentation of my work with a dozen or so projectors plus programming and audio equipment.

    Much to my surprise they turned out all the lights before I was able to move from the front to the back. It was dark as pitch with no windows.
    I was very proud of myself that I finally got from the front to the back and actually even pressed the right buttons in the pitch dark.

    Someone however had knocked out the electrical plugs for my mass of equipment so nothing happened. Ooops!

    At the age of 11, I was shooting on the edge of a canyon and dropped a lens. I caught it on the way down but in the process just missed going over the edge.

    I was shooting a play for television in an auditorium with a live audience. My lighting and television equipment used a lot of electricity and we were keeping our fingers crossed about blowing circuits, but everything was going fine..until

    a segment of the play where a little girl was to turn on a small light. You guessed it. The electricity was that close to critical. She turned on the light and it blew every circuit in the auditorium to create pitch darkness.

    Damnit skieur, Mine is not even close to yours.....but I'll post it anyways, It's short.


    Wile taking what ended up as little more than a snapshot the Girl (then eight) grabbed the heaviest coushin she could find and heaved it at me, given the hight diference I took it right in the grion. Thank god it wasn't a baseball or a lacross ball, she had a hell of an arm. The coushin itself hit me with enough force to send my camera out of my hand and to the floor.
