Photographer on pitch! Watch as an intrepid cameraman runs onto the field of play and sets up his tripod midway inside one half before a penalty is taken in a Russian football match yesterday.

The photographer inexplicitly gets on the pitch and prepares his camera facing the goal, ready to capture the perfect shot as the penalty-taker readies his run-up.

As the trendsetting journalist fiddles about with his equipment and adjusts his focus, he seems oblivious to the players staring at him in wonder.

It’s as if his cunning disguise of a fluorescent orange jacket isn’t working for some reason…

Unfortunately before the penalty kick could be taken, the referee finally spots the member of the press and the crazy man was waved away by the incensed official.

The photographer leaves the pitch in disgrace and goes home without the shot he wanted.

Maybe next time on-the-pitch-cameraman, maybe next time.

Watch the short photographer on pitch clip repeated multiple times for Russian TV news GSPTV, as the cameraman gets his tripod ready to capture the perfect shot of the penalty:
