Which three people would you most like to photograph and why?
One of my friends has just dropped this stinker on me, and I'm still working on the answer...
So, if you could photograph anyone, alive or dead, which three would you choose, and why would you want to photograph them?
Father Christmas, The Tooth Fairy and God! Cos then I could afford a pro camera and all the gear
number one for me is someone i have known for a number of years and is a hero in every sense of the word, i never seem to have a camera handy when i see him though. Callum Macfarlane Barrow runs a charity called Marys Meals, some of you may have seen him recently at the CNN awards. Marys meals feeds nearly 1/2 a million children everyday. I really need to arrange something with him and get some studio shots done.
number 2 , would be Liv Tyler and steve tyler - they both have amazing faces.
number 3 would be Richard Avedon, a great portrait togger i would love to get a pic of in his own style
# 1 for me would have been Mother Teresa. Such an amazing face to put out front of the amazing things she accomplished.
# 2 would have been Paul McCartney. So few have managed to take amazing photos of that man and have gotten famous from that.
#3 would be President Obama. I could just imagine that face characterized as the guy from Mad Magazine.
Winston Churchill, Richard Burton and Ronnie Barker.
Isembard Kingdom Brunel.
Mine would be very personal as we have very few photos of them:
And also, my father, who I have never met and don't even know what he looks like.
The three people I would like to photograph are personal heroes of mine. First, If he were still alive I would find it the upmost honour to photograph Martin Luther King.He was a giant amongst men.He inspired both black and white to live together and bor no hated from any colour race or creed. Secondly I would love to photograph Mohamed Ali because he was a symbol to many, a rallying call for equality and when the Vietnam was was on he stood by his principles and refused to fight in the Vietnam war and kill innocent people for a cause he did not believe in. Finally I would love to photograph Stevie Wonder. His music has spanned the decades. he IS motown which was and still is the anthem and sound of a generation. He is a wonderful humanitarian and I have always and will always love his music. For me these three men encompass all that I would like to see in humanity and to capture that in a photo would be quite something.
Thanks for asking the question Sean.
