This week we released episode 4 of our behind the scenes series that covers our travel around the world. Siggy, our photography guide in Iceland, has become everyones favorite character in these videos and at the end of episode 4 he goes on a rant that is so hilarious that we decided it deserved its own video.
Siggy begins by warning us that he is not talking about us. We, apparently, are "cool" photographers. But he does have some things to say about "other photographers."
Siggy rants: "They are like a weird bunch of nerds. They are so strange. They only talk about photography, nothing else! Actually, one of the things that has always amazed me is how long it takes a photographer to take one picture. I just run out of the car and take a snap shot and they can stand there for hours before they even figure out HOW to take the picture. They are messing with buttons and I suspect they have never properly learned to operate the camera. And they are so focused on these damn ice cubes floating on the black sand beach, you can't imagine."
Anyone who is dating or married to a photographer can relate to Siggy's views. My girlfriend hates when I get around my photography buddies and start talking about gear.
If you find yourself in Iceland I honestly can't recommend Siggy enough. He is so much fun to be around and he knows every single incredible location in Iceland. Just remember, he doesn't want to hear about the specs of your new camera.
