Disgusting subject! I have been led to say something here about these violators of privacy and decency. I follow a strict moral and ethical code with my photography, no photos of people without their permission, and NO PUBLICIZING without their permission, that includes social media sites. I do not consider these types to be photographers or artists, they are cheap, predatory thrill seekers. I don't care who a celebrity is, they deserve their privacy as much as anyone else and that includes when they are on their own time in public. If they are performing somewhere, that's different if cameras are allowed then by all means get the shots! But otherwise, get a life and leave people alone! OK, I've done my share of rattling I'll get off of my soapbox now.

I think this is an interesting argument. I am in no way siding with paparazzo but they are a product of fame. As long as people will pay for salacious celebrity photos there will be paparazzi. I think it is better then the alternative where everyone has no freedom to take photos in public.
