Bing a photographer is a complicated and sometimes challenging job, requiring talent and knowledge. But that doesn’t stop some people from treating them like free photo dispensers.
That was the inspiration for Italian graphic designer Luca Masini, who previously created a poster series of things you shouldn’t say to a designer. Whether you work for an agency or you’re a freelancer, you’re bound to come into contact with some frustrating clients. So for this series, Luca created a list of the most annoying and irritating phrases that photographers hate to hear.
Created in collaboration with Picame magazine, anyone who’s ever tried to earn a living from professional photography will wince in horror at some of these irritatingly common comments and requests.
What not to say:
If you can relate with these posters, share some of the top irritating comments you hear. You can also check out sarcastic posters on what it’s like to be a photographer.
