An archive video interview with the photographer in the Friday’s Kanye West attack has been unearthed by RumorFix and it reveals Daniel “Dano” Ramos thinks “paparazzi are now the celebrities just as well as the celebrities.”
Not only was the SAG/AFTRA actor/director/producer in the center of a clash with Kanye at LAX, he was also the paparazzo who was attacked by Britney Spears with an umbrella in 2007.
In 2010, the paparazzi turned filmmaker won a New York International Independent Film award for his documentary, Paparazzi: Full Throttle LA.
And, he even pitched a TV show called Paps. “It’s like the TV show Cops following police officers — in this case we’ll be following paparazzi doing what they do best,” he told Hollywood TV.
Dano was injured during the scuffle with Kanye and there are reports he may press charges.
