The Most Interesting Photographer in the World

Here’s a funny twist on the popular “most interesting man in the world” beer commercials by Dos Equis — Luc Welch over in the photo.net forums has posted some facts about “the most interesting photographer in the world“:

He’s photographed lions… from the inside
When NASA had to repair the Hubble… they borrowed his lens
He built his first camera when he was five… out of a toaster
His portfolio has been known to stop wars
He photographed a sunset once… it waited for him
His list of clients include Bigfoot, Santa Claus, and those little grey aliens

He is… the most interesting photographer in the world…

I don’t always shoot film, but when I do… I prefer Dos Chromas. Keep shooting, my friends.

If you’ve never seen these commercials before, you can go check them out on YouTube.

Wikipedia also has a list of facts about him:

He can speak French… in Russian.
His personality is so magnetic, he is unable to carry credit cards.
He once had an awkward moment, just to see how it felt.
His charm is so contagious, vaccines have been created for it.

The police often question him just because they find him interesting.
He is the only man to ever ace a Rorschach test.

    Haha, great list!

    My take: “Geometry test scores across the world shot through the roof after he explained the rule of thirds…He is the most interesting photographer in the world.”

    A fun, creative challenge :)

    He is one with the camera and needs no viewfinder. He is the most interesting photographer in the world.

    His photographs are so brilliant that David Hobby attached one to a stand as a light source.

    His shutter doesn't click – it *sighs*
    He's so electrifying, he's never charged batteries.
    His custom cameras have 14,452,988 pixels…because he thought that number was enchanting.
    Time-space slows so he can shoot sharp under 1/60th.
    Photons align themselves to stop noise at any ISO.
    Dead pixels come to life and hot pixels cool under the balm of his touch.
    The background world goes blurry so he always has good bokeh.
    His beard is the best diffuser in existence.
    He needs no flash…he just stands where he needs fill light and smiles.

    He is… the most interesting photographer in the world…

    He doesn't take a photo to freeze a moment in time, moments in time freeze so that he can take the photo.

    And now for the most important fact: HE is not a HE. He is a she. The Most Interesting Photographer in the World is a WOMAN.

    I think they mean “Keep shooting, my friends.“ Because “Keep shooting my friends“ might not be a friendly thing to say.

    The word “tripod” was coined in reference to his shadow.
