Celebrity Moblogging

My good friend Frank created a blog and posted some pictures, and within a couple weeks he was interviewed for an article in the NY Post:

Business executive Frank Lazaro also gets his kicks sharing celebrity photos with fans around the world on a moblog called Flickr.com.

As a former manager of national promotions for Cingular, the 31-year-old spent three years attending after-parties and award shows in Los Angeles. He boasts Kirsten Dunst, Magic Johnson, Matthew Perry and Tobey Maguire among his camera phone conquests.

“For me, it’s the coolest thing in the world,” he says. “I saw Farrah Fawcett at the Blockbuster after-party, and I thought, I’ve got to get a photo.”

Lazaro says the camera phone’s unobtrusiveness makes it perfect for clandestine shooting of a star.

A photo of him and a “falling out of her dress” Kirsten Dunst has received thousands of looks at Flickr, he says.

Both Shankman and Lazaro see themselves as sophisticated amateurs, too cool to embarrass a celeb – or themselves.

Still, there was that Alanis Morissette concert at a cellular trade show, where Shankman and a “thousand techno-geeks” held their hands up with camera and video phones. “It was dorks on parade,” he laughs.

Lazaro still regrets not having a camera phone with him when encountering porn star Ron Jeremy at a Las Vegas airport last year.

“It was frustrating,” he laments. “Every middle-aged guy knows who Ron Jeremy is.”
