Oscars Photographers are all looking for something different - a look or an expression or something crazy happening that will make the front pages. They are all competing for the best shots.

Entertainmant photographers fulfill a useful function in society, capturing the best images from occasions like the Oscars and Baftas and publishing them to an interested audience. At the other end of the spectrum of entertainment we find the Paparazzi - a sly and loathsome group of "photographers" who make their living by taking unauthorised, intrusive  and often unflattering images of the stars. They often hang around outside nightclubs and famous people's homes waiting for an unguarded moment. Don't think of this as a career option

Working today

When it's your turn to be the STAR - make sure you have fun and smile and give the photographers lots of different pictures. 

When you are the photographer you have to work quickly to get your shots and you may need to shout the star's name to get them to look your way. Be polite though and once you have their attention - shoot lots of pictures. You can ask them to change position or hold their Oscar out to you, or over their heads.  You want exciting and fun pictures. Make sure you are using the viewfinder if you have one, standing nice and still as you take the snap and using flash if it's gloomy
