Oh and I completely forgot. So this other guy stops in because there is some sorta group there that talked to him about photos – he asks the actual event organizer if he can set his stuff up, and the guy says “yes”. So he pulls out three speedlights and stands, a reflector and a diffuser and his camera. All of a sudden the “official photographer” saw him and runs over – “EXCUSE ME! EXCUSE ME! DO YOU NEED HELP HERE? WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE?”
So basically anybody with better gear than he had was harassed and yelled at because his penis was too small or something.
