I've changed my mind:

Robert Hooke:

A brilliant man who unfortunately fell foul of Isaac Newton. No authenticated likeness of him exists, so it would be nice to take one.

Are we allowed video?

If yes I would like to video Johan Sebastian Bach, another great mind (and father to 20 children), to see how he really played.

There is great debate amongst academics about how the great man played on the instruments of the day, especially the organ, so it would be wonderful to actually see it.

Me too, I'm going for Schrodinger's cat. Now there's a challenge. Do I need 1/8000 or will 1/25 do??? Safer to go for both, there's bound to be a wave before collapsing.

Re: Who would you choose to Photograph

Anyone who's orbiting in the ISS - I'd have to go there to take it of course and I may take a few more whilst I'm there

In terms of real people. very hard ... it's almost more people + place

David Attenborough - in the wilds somewhere
Brian Blessed - 1/2 way up Everest

Probably most real, but something I admit to being to scared to do is go and take some pictures of the Medicines Sans Frontiers doctors hard at work - those pictures would tell a worthwhile story

Regards
Andy

Re: Who would you choose to Photograph

That is easy for me it would be OlyPaul

He takes wonderful portraits of all those around him and it would be fantastic to see some more of the good man himself

Even better for me would be Georg Frideric Handel playing the organ in the old Coventry cathedral (which he did). Especially as the Luftwaffe got their own back for Herr Handel deserting to the other side.....

It would be even better if we could bring Handel back to play in the new cathedral! Now photos of that would be fantastic.

Re: Who would you choose to Photograph

The only name I could come up with was David Attenborough but I still can't decide a location. If we're allowed to time travel I'd shoot street in Roman Chester.

Re: Who would you choose to Photograph

On the fictional side Jesus both giving the sermon on the mount and on the cross,
or Henry the 8th jousting in his younger days,
if it's someone modern and realistic then i think a scantily clad Megan fox would bee nice
