The photos have appeared all over the web in just a couple of weeks. Will King seems to be in good sport considering his image has spread around the web, manipulated without his content, and used for humor.

The Story:

Will King is a MUSC system analysis who took a perfect photo of a runner by coincidence. He didn’t know who he was, but he caught the right moment. After uploading the photo to his flickr. One of his colleagues nicknamed him ‘Mr. Ridiculously Photogenic’. After which, King posted the photo on Reddit where it became viral. The photo itself has over a million hits, which does not include sites like facebook, twitter, and other social media sites.

With his Nikon d90 in hand, Will took the shot that everyone now knows. I wonder what this will mean overall to his photography, or if it may lead to better opportunities.
