New York Paparazzo: I get paid $30,000 for One Pic

It’s nice work if you can get it. Apparently, a photographer who takes a picture of Katie Holmes eating whatever it is famous people eat, can sell it for as much as $30,000. Ever wonder what that’s like? Well, let’s just say you’d have to have a lot of patience. WNYC recently spent some time with, Jae Donnelly, 38, a New York paparazzo who told them he does “A lot of…waiting and staring and waiting and staring” to get the money shot.

Hold on, before you run out and fill out an application, you’re going to need some disguises.  To get just the right shot of Taylor Swift strolling through Central Park with her new boyfriend, Donnelly says, “What I do is blend in with the surrounding. I could be anywhere: in bushes, in tress, in someone else’s apartment.”  Can you handle that?
Not sure anymore, huh?  Well, watch the video of Donnelly doing his thing:

Instagram to Twitter: Let’s Just Be Friends, Okay?

Omg, guys, did you hear? It’s kind of sad. Instagram recently announced today they’ll no longer allow users integration with Twitter.  Now, instead of that picture of your lunch being posted automatically to twitter, if someone wants to see that Subway sandwich, they’ll have to click a link that takes them to the Instagram website. (That sounds like a lot of work)


They claim the reason for this move is the get people to use the revamped Instagram.com site, which now lets others browse profiles and photo galleries. At the LeWeb Conference, Instagram CEO and founder, Kevin Systrom, said, “It’s just about where do you go to interact with that image? We want that to be on Instagram.com because it has a better user experience currently.”

As for Facebook’s, they already link back to the Instagram page when someone shares it on Facebook, but the potential impact on their bottom-line is low considering, you know, they own Instagram.
