Super Mario Party (NDcube, 2018) contains a mini game titled Slaparazzi, where you compete against other characters to be in the center of the frame when the photograph is taken.
It’s an interesting twist compared to the usual paparazzi photography games, where the subject of the photo is the one with agency and attempting to get in the picture, rather than the photographer trying to get a picture of a (often unaware or non consensual) subject.
Photography missions in Jurassic World Evolution (Frontier Developments plc, 2018). Similar to Afrika or beyond Good and Bad, the game uses photographic activities in game in a simulation of safari/animal species inventory mechanic.
Below are a few basic tips for taking the best photographs and them some dinosaur specific activities that net you extra cash for bonuses.

Zoom: Paparazzi im Einsatz (Exozet Game, 2006)
In Zoom: Paparazzi im Einsatz the player takes the role of a paparazzi who photographs VIPs in embarrassing situations. The game is played like most other first person shooters but the only weapon is a camera. So the player walks through the 15 levels, e.g. a private club in Hollywood or a musical premiere on a yacht, and searches for something interesting to happen. To make it easier the important persons are marked with a green arrow just before the event. Then the player uses his camera and receives his money instantly.
The main problem is that paparazzi are unwanted on these parties. So if the player is near a bodyguard when taking a picture they start to hit him – if the player loses his life energy the mission is lost. His only option is to blind the bodyguard (or an angry VIP) by photographing him and to run away quickly. Other threats are other paparazzi which steal the most interesting scenes. In every mission the player has to earn a certain amount of money to pass it. Sometimes he also needs to take pictures of specific events. The missions are fully scripted (which means that the player can memorise the events), and offer optional humorous content, e.g. conversations to listen to.
