Papping the Pap

via the tipline

Simon Runting is a paparazzi photographer, he is top of his game. Runting was responsible for the NZ privacy tort Hosking vs Runting.

Until now there has never been a photo taken of Simon Runting, but look at what we have here, NZ’s worst muck raker and NZ’s top paparazzi photographer together in the same shot at the Canon Media Awards. Unsurprisingly neither got an award.

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
