Photojournalist in areas of conflict–featured in reality tv show

Not one to watch too much tv, I recently came across this “Reality tv” show called “In Harm’s Way.” I’m not sure what the premise of the show is but this segment caught my attention.

I wondered to myself how could you concentrate on your task at hand–photography when you have a camera crew following you?

I’ve never heard of Zoriah but then again who’s ever heard of me, either? I just think to effectively do your work, you can’t have a camera crew around you.

The moment you become the story especially when you’re supposed to be “working,” then it’s kind of an act, isn’t it?

One of the comments written about the video that I found hysterical was something to the effect, “this was like one of the game shows where the contestants were vying for new SUV.”

No, I don’t think the action is staged, but I do think it’s calculated and that the danger is not as real as we’re led to believe.

Oh…those ads they have in between the video, were so excruciating, I never finished watching the whole video.
