Snowflake Teddy Forbes, YouTube's number one fake photographer. Image by Random Camera Junk

In today's world of false advertisement, fake news, and fake photographers, nothing comes as a surprise.  There are several YouTubers who claim to be "photographers," yet they don't have an actual portfolio of images to justify such a title.

Snowflake Ted Forbes is one of these fake YouTube "photographers." He runs the channel, "The Art of Photography." Recently, several people - including myself - have been calling Ted out on his truly horrifically poor photography skills. Random Camera Junk has published another fine video exposing Ted for what he is - a FAKE photographer. 

I've used several screenshots from the video produced by Random Camera junk to help illustrate our point. It's truly mindbogglingly how such bullshit gets a pass in the photography world. 

As I've stressed time and time again, my critique of these people is to bring out the larger issue of our collapsing culture and society. I've invoked philosophers such as Fredric Nietzsche to drive home the point. Nietzsche spoke of a time when the "Last Man" would rule the Earth; a time when excellence would be replaced by a celebration of mediocrity, when technology would replace true creative talent, and when masses of people would huddle up to pat each other on the back, while never criticizing. All of the YouTubers I've recently mentioned resemble Nietzsche's "Last Man."

Another BAD photo by snowflake Teddy Forbes

Another BAD photo by snowflake Teddy Forbes. This photo was used in the R.C.J. video.

Yet another BAD photograph by snowflake Teddy Forbes. It's hard to get one's mind around the fact that this guy actually successfully pawns himself off as a photography teacher!

You truly have to scratch your head trying to figure out why snowflake Teddy Forbes exposed the public to this horrifically poor photograph.

Heroin addiction hurts everyone involved; the addicts, parents, friends and family. After two years documenting the destructive power of heroin addiction, the emotional impact started to have an effect. Several of the addicts that I photographed became more than just photo subjects, they became friends. Several of those people eventually died from their addictions, leaving an empty space in my heart, and their images forever etched into my memory. Their zombie addiction still lives within my head...

My video was removed from YouTube for "violation of community guidelines for nudity," And somehow this crap is just fine!

Obviously an important contribution to the YouTube "community."

Against Doctor's Orders Part Two: God Bless My Addiction

Heroin addiction is nothing short of evil. The US is currently in the midst of an opioid overdose epidemic, that not only includes heroin, but  prescription pain medications as well. In fact, many heroin addicts first developed their physical reliance on opioids by taking prescription pain medications. My two years spent documenting addicts has taught me much about the wold of addiction. Through these stories I hope to share my experience with you, and hopefully help someone to never ingest heroin in the first place. It's not worth the risk.
