    If I met him, I would smile. You know what? He hates that! He doesn't want people to smile into the camera lens! So smile. Constantly. Look and point at the lens. Yeah, he can photograph me. And I'll mug for the lens, which is exactly what he doesn't want.

    Charlie Kirk (Two Cute Dogs on Flickr) has been labeled an imitator by a number of people. They seem to have a very similar working style - and similar criticism surrounding it.

    No...it's a refreshing departure from being hit up for spare change.

    I'm being sarcastic. The guy is one of my photographic idols but I am pretty sure it'd scare the shit out of me if he got the jump on me like he has on some people.

    Without a doubt! Then I would likely proceed to insert both his camera as well as his flash.... As someone who shoots on the street, one of my primary protocols is to adopt a sort of "passive demeanor," the object being to show to my subject a sort of neutrality: that I as a photographer am there to record an event (or, simply, life) unfolding, not to provoke - or create (artificially) an incident or - a reaction to record. Gilden's modus operandi does a disservice to those of us who shoot on the street: we come across to the public as arrogant, rude, ill-mannered, inconsiderate and intrusive. Just what the world needs: more incivility!

    I think this is a disgusting concept, to even consider punching anybody in the face, and I find the subject of this thread disgusting and ask Sean or any moderator to please close it. Violence against anybody is not funny. Thanks, Sean.

    Gosh, really Kevin? I assume you are not very familiar with "humour" or "emoticon", aren't you?
    I already underlined this is not a serious thread, but apparently you didn't read it or didn't understand.

    Don't worry, nobody is going to attack anyone for taking pictures.
    As a matter of fact, this thread is convincing me there is no situation, when anyone would punch or harm in any way a photographer taking photos of a person. I'm pretty sure - and this is an important conclusion - photographed people can be sometimes aggressive, but rather in verbal manner. The only risk photographer is taking would be when he/she enters some dangerous areas, but in that areas, everyone can be robbed, not only picture-takers.
