Question Who would you choose to Photograph

Given the once in a lifetime opportunity to photograph anyone on Earth:

Who would it be and why

Of course if you already have, then please; do "Show-n-Tell"

Re: Who would you choose to Photograph

I would like to photograph Benjamin Netanyahu in a warm embrace of genuine friendship and cooperation with Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.

You do choose the easy ones don't you John! Personally I would settle for a picture of my son and daughter without one of them sticking their tongues out.

Cheers,

Ralph.

Re: Who would you choose to Photograph

Whilst in my fling with the dark side I went to the N**** school for a course on Film Noir style photography. Oh to be able to take shots of Ms's Lake, Bacall, Hepburn, Heyworth and Gardener......not to mention Loren.....and Im sure a lot of others. Don't want much do I!

Re: Who would you choose to Photograph

The Queen relaxing and walking in the gardens at Buckingham palace or maybe a get together of the royal family at Sandringham.

Had I been given the opportunity (and a camera) maybe a picture of Jackie Kennedy back in the 60's.

Re: Who would you choose to Photograph

Historical figure? Albert Einstein, he seems to have had a relaxed and fun attitude to having his photo taken.

Live figure? Stephen Hawking, not so much for the photography side of it, although it would be a privilege to take that shot, but in the vain hope some of his brains and courage would rub off on me.

Re: Who would you choose to Photograph

I have pictures of Maggie Thatcher, Endal the Lab, Norman Tebbit, Alan Rusbridger.

All taken on the hoof, ie they did not know I was lurking apart from Endal.

Yes - especially Richard Feynman with or without bongos - infinitely curious, for me he was THE physicist of the 20th century.

Nah, he means Busty Brenda, the barmaid at his local!

If we could go back in time I might chose another glamorous lady - AH.
