I first saw it back in the 80s, and since then I've encountered it hundreds of times, not only on bumpers but T-shirts, road signs, posters, etc. I'm not sure who first came up with the phrase but it has since gone viral, because
1) There are a ton of skateboarders out there, and
2) They are often unfairly harassed and marginalized by authorities
So skateboarders have taken the message into their own hands, and more power to them.
After getting kicked out of the fair last weekend I wondered why photographers don't have something similar? There are a ton of us. We're hassled. We're marginalized. Where's our bumper sticker?
Well folks, here it is:
I have hired an online supplier to manufacture a small stockpile of this bumper sticker. They are 3" x 10" with white lettering on black, made from automotive-grade pigments and suitable for outdoor or indoor use (Full FAQ here). Put one on your car, your bike, your 8 x 10, your favorite abandoned alley,...the possibilities are endless. Makes a great gift for photographers as well as general anti-authoritarians.
