How can you tell the difference between a wedding photographer and an event photographer? Or someone that snaps pictures of food versus a person that takes photos with a macro lens? Each type of photographer has their own idiosyncrasies, and these different characteristics are the subject of 30 Types of Photographers, a video by Finnish photo artist Antti Karppinen.
Over the span of four minutes, Karppinen introduces us to a myriad of photographer personalities. To the layperson, it might seem like there’s not much difference—every photographer is the same, right? But through Karppinen’s often-humorous impressions, he shows that there are many distinctions in the poses they make, what they wear, and the accessories they use. A commercial photographer, for instance, is likely to have their camera hooked up to a computer so that each shot is transferred onto a larger monitor. But for someone who photographs kids, they’ll ditch the tether and wear a sock puppet on their hand.
Watch Karppinen embody 30 unique photographers in the video below. You’ll come away appreciating the nuances of the field.
