From the outset, it may appear that the job of a photographer is an easy and glamorous one. However, what goes on behind the scenes can be equally as humorous, terrifying, and unnecessarily dramatic at times. Check out this video of odd photography confessions!
As a photographer, it's very likely that at some point you have shared your experiences in a Facebook group, group chat, or simply complained to your partner or a friend who's willing to listen. It could be about frustrations from belated client payments, unrealistic requests before, during, or after a shoot, clients who aren't willing to reason, inappropriate messages or behavior on the day of the shoot, and many more. How many can you already think of that you've seen firsthand?
To remind us that we're all in this together, professional photographer and YouTuber Jessica Kobeissi has collated numerous confessions of photographers from different industries in one video where she reads them out loud, reacts, and provides her commentary. If you enjoy Ellen DeGeneres or Jimmy Kimmel segments of reading out humorous tweets, this video is the photographer's version of it.
Few confessions, featured in the video, include a photographer complaining that their client wanted a full refund because the bride's eyelashes were crooked, getting lost on location shoot with a model and consequently having to call the police, and other scenarios. I suppose, at some point in our photographer's career we will end up finding ourselves in a situation where we can either laugh or cry, so always remember that it's very likely you're not the only one who have found themselves in this position, and pick yourself up with your head held high.
