Have you ever read a story about some of the “not-so-smart” things that photographers have done and just shake your head incredulously? So have we! And that’s what today’s episode is all about. We’re covering two stories about photographers who may not have exercised good judgment in one way or another and what the response has been as a result.

In our first story, we discuss a photographer, Mercer Harris, and his choice of pairing little ducklings and bunnies with infants and toddlers for his annual Easter shoots. While this, in and of itself, may cause you to look sideways, the public response has been despicable.

Our next story involves 64-year-old photographer, Michael Warnock, and 22-year-old model, Chelsea Guerra, who pled guilty to holding a nude photo shoot in the morning at, get this, a strip mall. Alas, this is what some forms of normal looks like these days, folks. So, we’ve got all that and a fresh portion of “What’s on Your Gear Shelf?” to round things out. Enjoy!
