We’ve all been there: in the middle of a very important shoot. Our job is to record the happenings and we really have to bring our best to it. But sometimes things don’t go as expected. Here’s 15 cameramen who had a very hard time doing their job.




1. Pro tip: choose your spot wisely when filming race cars, sport events…
