Has anyone else seen the latest advert for Adidas with David Beckham talking about some photography competition with him or something? Don't really know the details I just saw him with a camera and briefly tuned in.
I he a closet photographer or something, just seemed strange and wondered what it was all about and if anyone else has seen it?

Perhaps its me but what's so strange about him being a photographer/using a camera?
Not strange him using a camera as such I just wondered what it was all about, I'd never heard of him being associated with photography before but now he's appearingon an advert which makes him look like he's an expert, just a shock I suppose.
Though saying that I may have completely missed the point of the advert as I wasn't paying much attention.
One can assume he's paid a lot of money for advertising whether he uses any of the brands personally is anyone's guess?
Was he wearing a big jacket with huge pockets and have a vacant, staring into the distance look on his face. (Usually over the shoulder of the person you are talking to!) If he didn't have that then he can't possibly be a photographer!
Well obviously yeah, but this was an advert for adidas, not for a camera.
I have found some information on the ol' interweb though, looks like its a competition to photograph him in a studio. I just watched the advert properly and yeah he's not saying he's a photographer, looks like a nice opportunity to meet him and take some photos though if you're that way inclined.
Not sure if the guys at ephotozine are aware of this competition?

Ah thanks for that made me laugh on an otherwise dull Monday morning, brilliant
I think I'm right in saying Mr. Beckham has been a keen amateur photographer for a while. I remember some Pap pic's a year or so ago and they'd snapped him taking some photo's. He'd got what looked to be a 300mm lens or there abouts. Whether the pic's where any good who knows....
Having looked through some of the entries on the link I am beginning to think that Adidas might regret this campaign.
It is amazing what some people consider to be good photography.
Cool - A high profile bloke pushing photography.
Dizzee Rascal did this last year with Microsoft.
Lets not run him down too much, unless he presses the shutter with his left foot he is probably no different as a photographer to the most of us.
Taking photo's and looking cool in addidas kit - maybe its a new trend - instead of a bling goldie looking chain we all wear SLR's and compacts
And the prize is to take shots Of Mr Beckham - That would be nice on your profile page.
Oh yeah I must admit it does make photography look a lot cooler!
Whilst we're on the subject what does everyone thing about that new HTC advert with the photography student and the skydive, I cant help thinking if that was me I would have accidently dropped that phone way before I got anywhere near the ground lol.
David Beckham on your profile page would be pretty cool too and maybe if he's feeling generous he could donate some money for photographic equipment hehe.
125MPH with a slippery HTC and no wrist cable.

He only uses the left for standing on. The right has some magic in it, but the left is a passenger most of the time.
Not sure why its so strange, and I also believe he's been a keen photographer for years.
