Indeed, the photographer creates the scene far more often than the scene is captured by a passing journalist...

That's awesome stuff.

I wonder how many of us ever wondered how the photographers always manage to get such perfect shots - and how they all tend to favor one side of the conflict.

And that young photographer is pretty gutsy to drop a dime on his compadres. I hope he doesn't suffer any ill consequences for it.
