How not to rob a bank

A transatlantic hat’s off to Luis Romero, AP’s San Salvador stringer, who found himself in the right place at the right time when part of the road in the capital suddenly collapsed and two naked men ran out before being quickly captured.

While the city’s police commissioner maintains that the two were criminal masterminds whose plan to rob a nearby bank by means of a 250foot tunnel was foiled when it collapsed, here at EPUK we can’t help but think that these two might not have been the sharpest tools in the box. Nevertheless, the photographs of them restrained, bent over, and naked are now spread about the internet: a position that we suspect will become very familiar to them once they’ve been sent to prison.

What is EPUK?

EPUK is an email group for professional editorial photographers who want to talk business. We don’t do techie stuff or in-crowd gossip. We don’t talk cameras or computers. What we talk about are the nuts and bolts of being in business - like copyright, licensing, fees and insurance.
