    Ha, I said that once in college to a yearbook photographer who'd come to take a picture of a student group I was in. As deadpan as possible, I said "But it'll steal our souls." And he was clearly confused.

    I have never had a problem with people taking my photo, and I often take peoples photos with or without permission as long as its on public property (street photography), So i don't understand either. Privacy doesen't seem to be a very good reason, every mall, office building, street corner, store, etc has dozens or hundreds of cameras running, and people are looking at you on the monitor on the other end like it or not.

    He must have told his wife he was cheating on her, and didn't want to get caught at a work conference.

    I once had a Somalian guy run at me from 20 feet away screaming at me saying I was taking his picture and not too, on 20 something street. Funny thing was I didnt even have my camera to my eye, it was just around my neck, and I had one hand on it, thumb on film advance, finger close to shutter. He was quite rilled up, I wish I did pick it up and take his picture, instead of calling him crazy and walking away.

    Well, the moment reminded me of one from "Cheers" you know -the photos of guys with glasses raised. And I figured, spontaneously, that it'd be a great shot of the guys enjoying the conference. I have another suspicion though, now that I think about it. He's overweight. I think that's the reason he doesn't like it. We were at another event and I saw him turn around and distance himself from where I was taking pictures. At the time I figured he just had someplace else to be, but this confirms he simply doesn't want to be photographed by me.

    It's just sad that a happy photo memory couldn't be captured. He certainly has the option to try to avoid being photographed all he wants.

    But that memory could have been captured if you had asked FIRST. he would have most likely bowed out but the rest would have been there.

    No, I don't think it would have mattered. He simply doesn't want to be photographed. I didn't want the picture of two guys and an oddly empty chair, so there was no picture at all.

    But enough of my personal failure. I had hoped to hear more reactions others had encountered. Wasn't really looking for advice on my situation.

    I photographed a wedding reception for a friend (the groom) a few years ago. He asked me to do it in a very candid style - no formal shots, just wander around the room and get photos of people having a party. There was one young woman there who consistently put her hand over her face whenever she thought she might be in my frame, even when she wasn't. After about three or four attempts to get photos in her part of the room, I thought about asking her if there was a problem, but then I thought better of it and just ignored her since she never confronted me directly (and I didn't print any negatives that included her).
