I was at a grass fire about a month ago and pulled up to a scene where there were no authorities present but plenty of media. When I got out I met up with our other crew asked what I could do to help. Out of the corner of my I eye I saw a young kid carrying a bucket of water out to some burning grass in an attempt to douse the fire. I told the other photog on duty that it would be a great shot. She told me that the people there were hostile because they wanted anybody and everybody at the scene to help put the fire out because it was threatening their business. When I heard this I immediately put my camera down and rushed over to help them until the fire department arrived on scene. As I was helping I noticed no other news crews were helping they just sat by and watched. My question is when do you put down the camera and be a human being or do you ever out of fear of other complications that could occur from your involvement?
