Jetman Yves Rossy lands, who is the photographer?

Matt reminded my wife that the National Geographic Channel were showing the Jetman documentary last weekend. Yves Rossy flew across the English Channel from France to the UK last week while strapped to a rocket powered wing. I finally got to watch it last night and enjoyed it immensely. It’s a great achievement. Slightly mad perhaps, and very risky, but I have one question though.

Jetman
Who is this photographer who managed to get snapshots of Yves seconds after he landed? I’d say it’s a compact camera he has in his hand so he’s not a pro, and the commentator was heard to say something like, “close friends are running up to..”

Jetman
Seconds later, a security guard rushed up and pushed the photographer away and that was the last we saw of him. Was he arrested?

The next scene was a crowd of press photographers, with DSLRs and video cameras pushing around Yves. I bet they’d have given anything to get a close up shot of the Jetman landing..
