Here's a prime example demonstrating the perils of being a photographer.

This snapper was in the middle of a photoshoot for the Littlewoods Ireland Camogie Leagues when a shot got a little too close from comfort.

When asked to puck the ball for a picture, Roscommon's Kelley Hopkins accidentally sent it flying towards the unsuspecting photographer's head.

The press photographer wasn't getting much sympathy from the crew around him, who had a good laugh at his expense.

The video was originally posted to the Littlewoods Ireland Facebook page, where it has been viewed more than 70k times since it was uploaded yesterday.

The shoot was for the company's Style of Play campaign, which will highlight the skill and style showcased by the players on the pitch, throughout the Camogie League.
