David Beckham, Photographer??

Well obviously its strange to someone who was unaware of his interest in photography, maybe people should re-phrase their comments to say 'He's been a keen photographer for a while did you know' or something a little less abrupt. Just a thought, maybe you should become a teacher i always thought that being patronising is the best way to answer a question.

Sorry for the rant but it grates on me when people are so blunt when asked a open and inquisitive question.

I saw the ad. I must say it was a bit strange for me too, as I didn't know he is into photography.
I thought them footballers are only into cars and women.... TongueWinkSmileGrin

sorry didnt mean it like that, I was just not sure why it was strange (and also confirming a comment above about him).

thats alright sorry just got worked up, i was just shocked because i'd never heard that he was into photography and wasn't something i would have associated with him. I wonder if any of his work is circling the internet (photos not that footbal thing lol) maybe we should invite him to ephotozine Tongue

Just another Scam to put pound notes in the Beckhams pockets

I saw a picture of David Beckham in one of the colour supplements not so long ago, with a Fuji X100 slung over his shoulder.

Probably given to him for advertising.

I don't know why it's so strange. There have been many famous people that use photography as a release, I believe one or two frequent EPZ.

I think there's even a photography club in the house of commons.

Well I've certainly learnt something new today, I guess until I got into photography I didnt really notice other photographers as much, can't blame them for using photography as a release, does wonders for me, plus I have visited so many different places that I wouldnt normally have gone.

there you go, it's not a photography competition, it's a voting competition. At last they're honest about it (or maybe the distinction is lost on them?..)

Voting competitions are pure gold for the companies that run them (the purest of gold being a voting competition which a submission fee for each entry).

I dislike them greatly as they encourage regular people into becoming spambots. "vote for me" posts are always a pain on forums; if by new people they are little more than advertising spam; if from established people they nearly always spark off a "I'm not voting for you" reaction from someone and then the thread fireballs.

But in the end its mostly just votes --- people love votes online -- they debate about them endlessly Wink

It is amazing what some people consider to be good photography.

Maybe I'll enter.
My photos are generally mediocre tending towards crap WinkTongue ~ but they're way better than what I've just seen GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin
