Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills, California

This is Why We Say We’re Press Not Paparazzi

Had my camera with me today to do a little bit of street shooting after a meeting in Beverly Hills. My real interest was to catch some of the high end cars that tend to head down Rodeo Drive. When walking back to my Jeep, I see Brian Grazer seated at a sidewalk cafe, talking on his phone.

Our eyes meet, I’m wearing my press credential, he sees the camera and kind of winces. I smile, nod, and simply keep walking, camera slung over my shoulder. He smiles back -very large- when he realizes I’m NOT raising my lens.

Allow the man some peace and a bit of privacy when he’s not expecting to be photographed.

THAT’s what I mean when I say #pressnotpaparazzi #rothstock !!! 😀
