Video: TSA Supervisor Calls Police on Teen for Filming Dad’s Pat-Down

Video: TSA Supervisor Calls Police on Teen for Filming Dad’s Pat-Down A 16-year-old boy has caused a stir after releasing a video showing himself being denied the right to film a checkpoint pat-down — something the TSA officially allows. YouTube user Apple Lucas claims that he was denied the right to film while being patted down by a TSA supervisor at Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport in Jefferson Parish, Louisiana. He then tried to film his father getting patted down, only to have the TSA agent call a police officer to the scene. “I explained to him that it clearly states on the TSA website that you are allowed to film the TSA...

This Music Video is a Fashion Shoot in Which Cameras Are Triggered by Sound This music video, titled “ShotBySound,” is the world’s first music-video-and-fashion-shoot hybrid in which a band takes pictures of models by triggering cameras with their musical instruments.

Taylor Swift’s Concert Photo Contract Changed to Be More Photographer-Friendly

Taylor Swift’s Concert Photo Contract Changed to Be More Photographer-Friendly Taylor Swift’s concert photography contract recently came under fire for being overreaching and for threatening to destroy photographers’ equipment, leading some publications to boycott the contract and obtain photos by other means.

Photographer Thomas Shahan, the “Bob Ross of bug shots,” got his hand on an early unit and just released this 6-minute hands-on review.
