Reasons Not to Date a Photographer

Found this through my interwebz friend Momo of Tabetic Zombie, these are the ones that are me. The original list can be found here, at Not A Starving Artist.

  • They rather hold their bulky camera, than hold hands with you.
  • They like to sit in obscure coffee shop and voyeuristically watch people for great lengths of time.
  • If you’re taking a walk outside and you come across some “interesting light” they will make you sit/stand/pose in public so that they can take a photo.
  • You’ll wait longer for them to finish analyzing art in a museum than you’ll wait at the dmv.
  • Same goes with old used bookstores.
  • Or they are actually using you to not look so creepy as they people watch everything going on around you.
  • You can’t take a photo with them without taking at least five more.
  • They spend all their time on the computer (and not for porn.) 
  • They still use film cameras. 
  • They’ll be fussy over the position of a common household object, like a coffee cup.
  • They like watching old films that you’ve never heard or will ever understand.
  • They like looking at weird things in general.
  • Instead of having penis-envy, they have camera-gear-envy.
  • Everything is watermarked.
  • They want to color correct a lot of scenes from Twilight and Jersey Shore.
  • They like trespassing into old abandoned buildings filled with health hazards.
  • They always want to show a new photo they took, but don’t really care if you like it or not.
  • Bright, sunny days make them sad, but cloudy, overcast days are apparently great!
  • They’ll take you into places that have “culture” as well a high chance of getting mugged.
  • You can’t go anywhere new without them stopping to take a photo of everything and anything.
  • Bringing their camera means, bringing 50lbs of equipment.
  • They are natural hoarders, collecting and keeping piles of old newspapers, packaging, magazines, and other things that “inspire” them.
  • They are weird and geeky.
  • They have hard drives of photos, but probably have printed 10 images. 
  • If you’re ever in auto mode, they laugh at you.
  • They orgasm every time they learn a new lighting technique.
