I'm 6ft 2" and weigh about 12 Stone!
So, tall and skinny.. with the added pop bellie
Do you think your height affects your way of life...?
Are you less likly to get work as a photographer? or anything else for that matter...?
I only ask as I feel intimidated by someone that is taller than me or curious by how someone feels about me being so tall and them so small...
I'd like answers/opinions on the basis of just meeting someone for the first time and if height effects your feelings about that person...? And what the feelings are?
Thanking you kindly

I'm 5"10 and 13 stone...... so, average height. Average build.... average looks!
It means I blend in easily, and others are either tall, short, fat or thin compared to me! ;O)
Tall photogs make better news photographers as they can get over the bun fight and short ar4es make better celeb photographers as they dont have to kneel down to get to breast level, where all good female celeb pics are taken
Never effected me..Im over 6ft,either in the Army or working in publishing.Always thought it was an advantage being tall,besides got the best spots in the crowd to see what is going on-and the best height for shooting.
But then always preferred my women tall as well..5'6" upwards.Welcome to the club,yes,it might be windy up here,but then we have the best view.
Im only 4ft 11 and my height is always a problem whether it be on the shelfs in tesco or taking shots out with my camera. I always angle the camera upwards of anything over 5ft or take a step ladder every where i go ( Not )
Such is life.... Denise x
I'm 6ft nowt and 13.5 stone of solid muscle. Unfortunately I'm 15 stone. Still haven't got the pie-gym equilibria quite right. Helps with carrying a sodding heavy camera bag at least.
i'm 5` 11 1/2 and 10 stone - tall and scraggy but i bulk up my weight appearence by having waist length long hair =)
sometimes i think i would like to be taller but 99% of the time i'm happy the height i am

I bet people think you're a girl from behind.
they are even more convinced when he turns round
Im the best part of 6 6.
Was handy when young for getting a good view at festivals, not so handy for getting hit on the back the head by bottles of p@ss chucked by the short arses behind me......
5'4" and I have to jump a lot 8-( Not good when the tripod is on full extension to get the best view - anyone know of a foldaway orange box that weighs nothing and packs into a rucksack ;-] I could always move to get an easier view of course but not when on top of a cliff gulp
what about getting some really tall platform shoes??
LOL Chris .. good thinking. I could also strap on a pogo stick I suppose.
Imagines self tramping through the landscape wearing multi-coloured sparkly Elton John 6" specials .. chuckle)
Stilts? They don't bounce as much!
That's true. And I could live with the banged head going for the pint afterwards ;-]
