My reply…

Pentax forum banned me years ago, so let me have my say here Nash. What may be a big ego to one, may be small to another. Excessive ego is in the eye of the beholder. But, if you’re a good street photog you got to be a little off your rocker to shove you cam into a strangers face at 2 in the morning. So good chance the hardcore street photog is going to have a different attitude and ego than a landscaper or startrail photog Nash.

All types of personalities out there Nash. Some are more asshole-ish than others. Eugene Smith produced great work, but as a human he was a shit. We overlook it and still love his pix. Unless I have to be married to em, I’d forget the ego judgments and concentrate on their end results.

Selection from ‘De Wallen: Amsterdam’s Red Light District’ artist’s book by Daniel D. Teoli Jr.

If you want to see some crazy ego’s get this book from your library…

http://www.amazon.com/Lives-Artists-Masterpieces-Neighbors-Thought/dp/0544252233/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1456962689&sr=8-1&keywords=artists+life+messes

The artists in the book far surpass any eccentricities and ego that the poor photogs can come up with.
