They start young, don't they?

You might remember when you were 14 and had aspirations of being a famous sports shooter or news shooter or art photographer. Maybe you carried your camera with you to the high-school football game or biked around downtown to photograph storefronts, in the hopes the local paper would write you a check for one.

Well, in the new age of 15 seconds of fame, 14-year-old Austin Visschedyk and 15-year-old Blaine Jones are also aspiring to make a living off of their photography, but rather than capturing a historical building or the local quarterback, they've got their sights set on Jessica Simpson. Apparently their goal is to make a million before they're 20 as successful paparazzi photographers. Oh, the times how they change!
