I have worked the boxing events area, and done personal family pictures for them. Ricky Hatton, Frank Bruno, Joe Calzaghe, sugar ray leonard. plus many others. wonderful memory's and every one a gentleman and a pleasure to work with.
I filmed an elderly Jake LaMotta, some years ago (part of a documentary). He was on the after dinner circuit, talking about Robert De Niro, Raging Bull, etc. He was so old (and perhaps a little pickled) that he told the same very long, amusing anacdote, twice. The second time it was greeted by stoney silence, as nobody had the guts to tell him, we've already heard this one. - His young blonde bimbo wife also insisted on singing a song... and she was absolutely dreadful. A night to remember.
Photographed lucy pinder and kelly brook which was fab lucy was very humble and very sweet and quite shy to be honest and kelly a true firecracker haha There's also some x factor people ive shot with like chloe mafia
Have you ever photographed a celebrity, or been photographed by one, and what were they like to work with?
Yes, from king and queen to musicians to a soap starlet who went on to be quite famous as both an actress and a model.
No, unless you count snaps taken of me by a couple of models who have achieved fame in other disciplines.
All celebs I photographed were fine, with the exception of one WAG whose stroppiness seemed to be inversely proportionate to her success as a solo singer.
Easiest to work with on commissioned shoots
Lewis Hamilton pre-F1, Damon Hill, Marcus Gronholm, Shane Lynch, Jackie Stewart.
Most difficult to work with
Kimi Raikkonen, Eddie Irvine, Lewis Hamilton once in F1!!!
Ronnie O'Sullivan at his club soon after winning the world championship. I knew about his Jekyll and Hyde persona and he didn't disappoint. One moment very pleasant and the next he went off his trolley. I also had a brief stint as a club photographer when Sophia Myles gate crashed my photos and even pulled me around the dance floor. It was only the following day when looking at what I had taken the night before I found out who she was and that she was dating David Tennant when he was the 10th Doctor.

Steve Wright and Gary Davies (Radio 1 DJs in the 80s for those of you too young to remember) at a Radio 1 roadshow in, I think, Falmouth. Only shot from the crowd though, not a personal shoot with them. Also, Big Brother contestant Grace (don't remember her surname) at a Newquay surf festival a few years back. Again, not a personal photoshoot.
