MAINZ: This event was one of the most grueling and physically draining events I have ever shot. To stand in one spot for 8 to 9 hours, shoulder to shoulder with an international pack of hungry photographers shouting and heckling at the talent, with tensions between photographers firing on all cylinders, creates quite a hostile working environment. I can only imagine this must be intimidating for the celebrity. It's therefore no surprise that some of the talent avoids us like the plague but the ones that don't certainly like to put on a show and tease the camera.
