You might have seen them before. T-Shirts with, “I Shoot RAW” printed on the front. Whether you’re a hobbyist, an amateur, a budding professional or a career photographer, you probably know what above the shirt is referring to. Admittedly, it has a hint at an innuendo. But who doesn’t love a photo related innuendo with humorous content? Our editor in chief, Pye, loves rocking his photo shirts around the studio. You’ve probably seen him wearing one in some of our review videos.
Jared Polin, a photographer from Pennsylvania, known as “The Fro” of FroKnowsPhoto, recently visited a Six Flags amusement park wearing an “I Shoot RAW” shirt – a shirt that advertises his website and has his logo printed on the back. Upon entering the front gates, he was immediately stopped by security and requested to remove his shirt (similar to the red shirt pictured above). Jared, always in the mind set of a photographer, whipped out his phone and documented the incident with video.
As Jared petitioned and demanded for a full explanation, the security guards were firm with their refusal to allow him in the park. The FroKnows host was escorted to the gift shop where he was required to purchase a replacement shirt in order to receive entry to the rest of the park. Among the shirts he found while browsing the gift shop were numerous t-shirts with innuendos, which he took photos of. Among them: “Size Matters,” and “I Like It Rough.”
You can check out Jared’s rant below along with the footage taken from the incident – in vertical video…tsk tsk. :)
Of course, Jared ended up buying a princess shirt to replace his photo shirt and wore a VIP: Very Important Princess shirt around for the rest of the day.
