the ultimate in candid photography

First, how scary is that old man? Trust me, it gets scarier.

As stated on their website, "MethodIzaz is a unique photography experience. Subjects are unaware of the exact moment they will be photographed and of the photographer's identity. Instead, the subject is photographed completely naturally, living life as normal. ... Using information provided earlier about their weekly routine, the photographer will arrive on the scene, and unseen, take shots of the subject." UHHHH.

In other words, you're paying top dollar for a camera-wiedling stalker. That's not creepy or anything. They have several samples of their "work" on their site. I'm using that term very loosely...I mean come on, following someone around for a true "in the moment" shot? I'm not convinced. Pretty much every shot on the site looks exactly the same: subject in a medium-close up walking down the street not looking at the camera. I'm not sure if that takes any kind of real photography talent.

I totally love that this crazy-haired guy paid tons of money for this picture.
