You already know who’s responsible for getting Lindsay Lohan, Scarlett Johansson, and Princess Di into car accidents: the paparazzi. They’re the bane of most celebs’ existences, except for those Laguna Beach girls who hope to god there’s a cameraman following them. But like most industries, the pap business could be finding itself the next victim of ageism.

Meet West Hollywood’s Austin Visschedyk, 14, and Blaine Jones, 15 — two up-and-coming paps who dream of earning millions from the business before they even turn 20. They’re part of the crew from Buzzfoto, which says:

You will see them out and around town on their cool scooters hanging on to their long Nikon cameras and super long lenses. The kids are ready for anything. They carry cell phones, top of the line equipment, pepper spray and condoms (just in case). Austin is the leader of the pack. ???If I go down, then Blaine is number one???, remarks Austin. Already the teen paps have photographed Adam Sandler, Kelly Clarkson and Ryan Seacrest, but they have their sights set on tracking down Jessica Simpson. “She is the person who I want to Paparazzi” boasts Austin.

We knew today’s youth were trendsetters, but “paparazzi” as a verb? Brilliant.

I guess it beats smoking cigarettes and chasing girls. What do they do when Chestica drives away and they can’t Paparazzi?
