I captured a couple of photos of Douglas Bader at a Coventry air show many, many years ago, he was getting out of his private plane and stood on the wing before walking in his usual gait across the grass airstrip.I never spoke to him but a friend sent him the photo which he signed and he asked for a further copy.
I had the pleasure of photographing 'The Fall' backstage after their gig for my university newspaper. All were very pleasant as I photographed them with my Olympus Trip. After saying our goodbyes, Mark Smith the lead singer called out to me: "Next time you come and photograph us might I suggest you take your lens cap off as you may get much better photographs!" God did I feel like a right muppet!
